Written by Maiara for the New Year wish


I waited so long for a fish like you to come along

I felt I finally found my place right beside you and completely safe

So I tried and I dreamed but our relationship was not what it seemed

I was not the one you wished to catch

A fish too strange to be your match

You will never know what you missed, now that this weird lonely fish to give up decided

So now the fish is free and shyly peeking behind the reef

“Good grief how can this be? There are so many fish in this vast and wonderful sea”

Everything had changed from the past she remembered 

So behind the reef she stayed and she dreamed

“Oh great”

She smiled as at the distance two fishes acquainted

“NO!!!! It is a fish and a shark”

“Now it is only a shark”

With the fervent shivers of horror the little fish started a prayer

“Dear angels of fish, please grant me this wish

I ain’t but simple by the standards of glamour, my fins are fine but lacking the color

Inside, you see, in a world of my own

I am fun and colorful and fairly easy to get along

Please protect me from sharks and traps of the sea so I don’t have to be any other than me”

“Please angels of fish, this is really a simple wish

Let me start anew and gracefully swim to the places I never knew

Then send the fish of my dreams to me

And let him guide me gently out from this vast and wonderful but confusing sea”


For all of you I wish happy new year and may your dreams come true

Just wishing you all Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I hope that this is the time of reflection for each on of us. I will be spending this Christmas alone and decided to take my time and contemplate on my life before the year changes. To be grateful for all the good things that have happened to me and specially to be thankful for wonderful old and new persons that have crossed my path over the time. It is time for me to open up my eyes and my heart for the good things in life and let the past go. I am still single and with the unwavering belief I know that the man of my dreams is coming my way. He will find me and our paths will cross, he will know that I am the one he has been looking for and he is not in a hurry to get to know me, for he knows that we have a lifetime ahead of us to explore and get to know each other, to spend many Christmases and occasions together. He knows that my love for him is pure and that I will not wish to change him, but to love him just the way he is. 

I will be posting my poem about Fish Dreams by the end of the month, poem so silly yet it is part of me that I had to write and let go of one feeling I had for a man I thought was not the one, but realized I was mistaken. New year new dream ahead for all of us. Please come back to read my essays and poems when the mood strikes.

Sincerely Maiara

Hi everyone, this is just a very quick post to celebrate another great milestone my post has reached. Today my blog reached 2,000 visitors. 2,000 people have gone through my blog to read my essays and that is amazing. I read this most wonderful and inspiring book “To Show and To Tell: The Craft of Literary Nonfiction” by Phillip Lopate. He mentioned in one chapter about blogging and that essay writers are not particularly popular but if the quality of the writing is in the essay the readers will find the blog. Well, it turns out that he was right. My blog is getting very popular, considering that I have only posted 17 times. I will continue to post at the end of each month. Please if this is your first time on my blog take time to look through my essays. You might find there something that speaks for you. I don’t have a particular subject matter to blog about, mainly I write about things that I keep wondering about myself. 

Thank you all for visiting Maiara Musings and please come back at the end of the month for my new essay or poem – yes, I am not great poet but sometimes I just have to write one….lol

Sincerely Maiara
