That Tiny Eyes Girl

ishambhavirhyming.wordpress.blog

That tiny eyes girl
Shrinks it more and stretches lips fore,
When her huge heart blooms with happiness.
In solitude!
That tiny eyes girl
Shrinks it more and rolls down the pearl,
As the pursed pain unfurl.

Where The Lost Things Are

Poetry from John Looker

.
Where The Lost Things Are

.
At the back of the west wind,
where the evening sun wakens a bird-rich isle:
that’s where the lost things are.

Where the hummingbird
quivers at a trumpet dripping with nectar
and clouds of scent rise over a turquoise sea,
that’s where they are, the things that can’t be found.

The golden sovereign that slipped between
the boards in the Tudor Hall; the Hall itself lost at cards
in Venice on the long Grand Tour;
they’re here; this is the spot.

Even the daughter, forswearing carriages and
pianoforte, who was carried away in steam and smoke
for love; and the son gone surfing in foreign lands;
they too are here. They all come here.

And therefore you.
You’ve raced across the foot-burning sand
to float like a starfish in the clear lagoon,
your tequila-on-ice waiting you back in the shade.

If only mine…

The fall of love

George Shetuni

I want to travel back in time
to the best time of my life
I want to travel back in time
to the time I was young and in love

winds clearing branches of their leaves
The yellow, the red, the brown leaves
Temperatures falling,
A sign that fall again is here

it has come around again,
Just as it did when I was young and naive
It caught me by surprise and off my guard
And before I knew it, I fell hard

Fall would be the season I would fall in love
It was a regular, ordinary day like any other
Made the most significant day of my entire life
I remember the time, the place, the earth-shattering revelation

I could tell you the time, the place, the girl
But then again, why?
It was so long ago, why should I even care?
It may as well be…

I Have

George Shetuni

I have once lived.

I have once loved.

I have once felt.

But that was a long time ago…

But what a time it was!

I have once lived.

I have once loved.

I have once felt.

But that was when I was young…

But what an age it was!

I have once lived.

I have once loved.

I have once felt.

But that was not to be…

But what a dream it was.

I have lived once.

I have loved once.

I have felt once.

I have…

And that makes me happy.

this poem was excerpted from my book Poems for a Good Occasion

Beauty isn’t skin deep or a certain skin tone or size or specific weight

Logic tells us we are just as good as the next person.
Just as smart in our ways.
Beauty isn’t skin deep or a certain skin tone or size or specific weight.
Success isn’t defined by money alone.
Talent is a perspective.
Love isn’t the whipped cream on top of the coffee.

Truly, Truly – a #freeverse #poem by Leona

Life and Times of a Quirky Character

Prayers my heart starts to

mumble as the dew

forms graceful drops

across the eyelashes

of the late summer trees

It sprang to mind the hopeful

and expectant posture of

a bride in waiting

calling

oil filled lanterns

how we see the changing times

only to be reminded that

in life there is death

in love there is loss

truly truly say to you

the barren garden will

blossom as the noon day

sun

creeps along the ground

there in the slanting rays

it is easy to remember that

goodness and favor

does come to those

who wait as the tides

change and the earth

shifts

Have I finally found my home?

Strength in me

My heart is never guarded,

screw the ones who think it should be

I ache, love, and feel with such passion,

that’s the strength in me.

Looking far at the sea reaching out for a hand of a beloved one

We all know love can be a strange thing.

Till Eternity… is a nostalgic and romantic song composed in a lush orchestral style or medium by SoundEagle🦅, and has some nice words many of us could dream of sending to our loved one.

Who does not wander through the years in search of someone we miss or would like to encounter?

Those who have the seashore nearby can go there for a walk and have many dreams of past moments but also of moments we would have wished for to happen. Then we too could remember the kiss the author of the song is talking about.

Would it be not nice if we could sing

All my life I have tried
To be one with you . . . . .

But how many of us would not have to think of the unreachable and say

Looking far at the sea
I reach out for your hand
Somewhere beyond reach you’ll wait for me
Wish I were there
To kiss you one more time
Till eternity . . . . . .

SoundEagle in Art, Aphorism and Paramusic

The blogger reminds us

a partnership is not the only form of love. You can love family, friends, nature, God, science, the world itself… and so much more.

Please do have a look at and listen to the music without words at: Romancing by the Beach and Sea with True Love and Reminiscence

Sending Love to the people of Ukraine

D.K. SANZ

“Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out…and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel. ..And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for ‘the universal brotherhood of man’–with his mouth.” Mark Twain – What Is Man?

Since its first season, I have been a fan of the television showDancing with the Stars, so I am pretty familiar with Ukrainian-American pro-dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who appeared in many earlier seasons and recently as a judge. When the Russian invasion began, Maksim was a judge on the Ukrainian…

Peace To The World

There is no reason to keep strangling life and wounding this earth.

Each of us plays an important role in spreading the message of peace and love.
We should show others there are ways to get to that better place where all of us can live in unison and peace.

(Think about um, the generations
And ah, say we want to make it a better place for our children
And our children’s children so that they, they
They, they know it’s a better world for them
And think if they can make it a better place)
There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place it was brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel there’s no hurt or sorrow
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me, and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
If you want to know why
There’s love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear of dread, we stop existing and start living
Then it feels that always
Love’s enough for us growing
Make a better world
So make a better world
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me, and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
And the dream we were conceived in will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify its soul?
Though it’s plain to see, this world is heavenly
Be god’s glow
We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords into plowshares
We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space
To make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me, and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me, and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
Heal the world (heal the world)
Make it a better place
For you and for me, and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me
You and for me (for a better place)
You and for me (make a better place)
You and for me (make a better place)
You and for me (heal the world we live in)
You and for me (save it for our children)
You and for me (heal the world we live in)
You and for me (save it for our children)
You and for me (heal the world we live in)
You and for me (save it for our children)
You and for me (heal the world we live in)
You and for me (save it for our children)

Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

 

Purplerays

    .

    We do not become healers.
    We came as healers. We are.
    Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

    We do not become storytellers.
    We came as carriers of the stories that we and our ancestors actually lived. We are.
    Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

    We do not become artists. We came as artists. We are.
    Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

    We do not become writers.. dancers.. musicians.. helpers.. peacemakers. We came as such. We are.
    Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

    We do not learn to love in this sense. We came as Love.
    We are Love.

    Some of us are still catching up
    to who we truly are.

            Knowledge That Matters



            We live in a world of knowledge.
            This knowledge is so varied and our understanding so limited that we can never grasp more than a very small part of it all. So how do we choose the knowledge that matters? What is the knowledge that grows my usefulness, my hope and peace, my love and care for others and that is always available?
            I believe the core knowledge is the fact that we are loved.
            Loved freely, deeply, unreservedly and eternally.
            Knowing this I am able to live, share and find peace in all situations.
            We can also return the love.

            Thank you Lord. I love you too.

            Joy is the gift of love

            Dutch translation / Nederlandse vertaling: Vreugde is het geschenk van de liefde

            ARHtistic License

            Joy is the gift of love. Grief is the price of love. Anger protects that which is loved. And when we think we have reached our limit, wonder is the act that returns us to love.

            Derek Walcott: Love After Love – El amor después del amor

             

            Elizabeth Cárdenas - Writer/Escritora

            Happy Sunday everyone.

            For the past few days, I’d been thinking quite a bit about poetry, and I wasn’t sure why.  Then, while watching my favorite show, Super Soul Sunday, Oprah quoted a few lines from the poem Love After Love by Derek Walcott. My curiosity led me to google it, of course. By the time I finished reading, my eyes were filled with tears. 

            Over the past 11 years, I have been going through a spiritual awakening. This poem summed up beautifully what I have not been able to express. I hope you enjoy it.

            Love After Love

            The time will come 
            when, with elation 
            you will greet yourself arriving 
            at your own door, in your own mirror 
            and each will smile at the other’s welcome, 
            and say, sit here. Eat. 
            You will love again the stranger who was your self.
            Give wine. Give bread. Give back your…

            Live the Four

            Christian life is simple, but demands our total being.
            It can be summed up in four words,
            ‘Love God, love people’.
            But what about obedience, service, sacrifice etc?
            Read the four words again.
            It’s all there isn’t it?
            We can’t fully love without all of these aspects of life flowing out of us.
            Live the love.
            The rest will take care of itself.

            We Danced Once

             

            Jewish Young Professional

            Other clubbers simply shuffle.

            We swing; obviously the cutest couple.

            Thought we’d found our groove,

            but guilty of repetitive moves

            that didn’t take us far

            enough – life had raised the bar.

            For vintage turns to useless junk

            One day, our groove became a funk.

            Why Oldies Are Goldies

            Music is something that always vibrates and keeps coming back in all sorts of forms. Regularly artists find again inspiration in older songs , give it some contemporary touch and soon those who hear the renewed cover go looking for the original music which can receive a new life again.

            Anita's Perspectives on Life.

            Are you a fan of old music…then this blog is for you.

            The connection people have with old music is far from grey and old. Even teenagers and young adults do like old music. People have always had a close connection with music because its ability to evoke our emotions and feelings.

            The stronger your feelings are while listening to a song, the stronger a connection you make with the music. Music represents who you were when you first made a connection with it.

            This holds especially true when you are adolescents and very young. From the age of 13 to 26, people are going through the most physical and psychological changes. This is a transition time for them and they face their first heartbreaks and other emotional turning points, which turns them towards making a strong connection with music.

            Music plays an important role in our lives. Sometimes we…

            Writo-holic

            Why I love him?? Like, Love him so much?

            Well he shaped me from within, it’s a kind of a mental and spiritual growth together with a physical one. He has some special characteristics may we call small flaws that makes him perfect and unique. His kind of kindest heart which is hardly visible to the outside world that he procures for me to see makes me feel so special.

            I will share one small incident that never failed to make a mark on me of his character. And honestly there are many many more .

            One day some scanvengers came to clean the leakage of one of our septic tanks and after hours of some laborious work that they do started cleaning themselves up. I instantly chided my husband asking him to tell them not to touch the water pipes to wash themselves up, he looked at me so…

            How to delineate a life lived?

            But limn the finer measure

            Of love given and received

            Of kindness extended with a free hand

            Of compassion shown in minute and larger ways

            Of laughter shared with those around.

            Choose to see joy

            And continue to delight in our communal dance.
