Smiling Thoughts… On Valentne’s Day

Valetine's Day

Smiling Thoughts

When I met you I tasted life

Like a bud, I blossom, I breathe

Never again would I strife

For your love and care are so deep

Smiling thoughts of you conquered me

In the morn when I make my coffee,

When I eat, or laugh you’re with me,

And everywhere it’s you I see,

Along the road, those lovely trees,

At my work with my Apple breeze,

These words I’m writing now, I grace

Because you put smile on my face

You’re the best part of my everyday

And at night when I lay down to sleep

Still there you are all over me

Smiling thoughts of you lingers great!

Happy Valentine’s Day To  Everyone!

For The Love Of Haiku 14 And I Voted 3 Haiku Lovers And To Break The Tie I Challenge Them To Write A Tanka Poem

For this week FTLOH-14, all participants have contributed their most unique and brilliant ideas in writing their haiku poem and I am truly thrilled for their enthusiasm for joining this haiku fun just because they love haiku and are happy to share with us their talents.  But since I do not get any votes from my readers so far, I decided to vote 3 haiku lovers who I felt they have given deep meaning with the given image for this week haiku :) Even others may seem to think it’s a weird image to come up with a brilliant haiku.  Hahaha :)
These 3 haiku lovers also obtained the correct form of writing a haiku which is 5-7-5.  And to break the tie, I challenge the 3 to write their poem this time in a Tanka poem.

And the 3 Haiku Lovers I have voted are:

Esenga’ s Voice

says

:

we see what we want…
grumpy faces, danger, falls
or brave and warm hearts

 kz says:

The strong will survive
Something they don’t teach in school
Nature’s basic rule

Mary Strong-Spaid says:

Underneath the web
illusions of power play
on thoughts imagined

World in confusion
Island with various creatures
Hungry shark, lost bear,
Godzilla, Super Heroes
All wanted to live in peace!

How to write a Tanka poem

The Tanka poem is very similar to haiku but Tanka poems have more syllables and it uses simile, metaphor and personification.

There are five lines in a Tanka poem.

Line one – 5 syllables Beautiful mountains
Line two – 7 syllables Rivers with cold, cold water.
Line three – 5 syllable White cold snow on rocks
Line four – 7 syllables Trees over the place with frost
Line five – 7 syllables White sparkly snow everywhere.

Tanka poems are written about nature, seasons, love, sadness and other strong emotions. This form of poetry dates back almost 1200 years ago.

The Poetry Zone  has a good description of Haiku and Tanka poetry.

Note: For

 Esenga’ s Voice

 kz
 Mary Strong-Spaid

Please use the comment area to write your Tanka Poem… You could also choose to post it in your blog as you like. Or if you choose not to write a Tanka Poem… it is also up to you.

And to my readers who would like to vote their favorite haiku among the three above, please use the  comment area to express your thoughts, why you chose to vote one of them. Merci :)

I named my plant, “Oxima”

IMG_2701

I checked to see all the posts I have published and for the record as of today I have already published 1,197 posts to be exact :)
But there are several posts which some of you may have missed to read, so I thought it would be nice to revisit them and share them with you…  and this post is one of them.   Enjoy :)

When I arrived here in Jeddah, 4 years ago, I bought some indoor plants and placed them in my flat.  I thought that it would be nice to have something fresh with me every day.

But unfortunately I do not have that what they called “green palms”, so that one by one they started to get dry and die.  Plus the weather here is really hot especially during summer season. You bet I always have my air-condition on.  And when I go for my holidays, there is no one who I could ask a favor to water them.  By then of course the room temperature would become too hot.  For sure the plants could be cooked. :)

I will be gone usually 3 weeks and sometime a month, so every time I get back from vacation, I would be crazy to water them and do the best I can to save them. But no matter what I do, they continued to wither.  I was disappointed so I just left them, I meant literally just let them to die.  I never watered them anymore.

One day I did a general cleaning in my flat so I’ve got to get rid of those things that are of no longer useful for me.

I was about to dispose the remaining plant left in my flat because most of its leaves were dried, I thought this plant won’t make it too.

But then when I saw a little bud of new leaf growing just beside its limb.  I was amazed!  I said, “Wow! Of all the plants this one made it. In spite of what I did, I don’t know how she did it but the thing was she survived!

This plant inspired me and thought me a lesson.  No matter what the circumstances may be, I should never ever give up, I must move on and passionately pursue my mission.

…And So I fixed it up and then I asked what name it would like to be called.

That night I dreamt of the word “OXIMA” so that’s where I get its name.

Are you familiar with “Lexigram”?  Because I lexigram the word OXIMA and I came up with this words from it:

Oxi/Oxy-root word of oxygen and oxygen is air and we need air to breath, to live, to have a life and become alive.

Ma- we called our mother in short Ma.  Plants are living things  and  so basically they are the natures arounds us, the beauty of the earth materials and the mother earth itself that are within us.

With these 2 words in my mind, I understand why this plant stayed with me.
I made this blog for this special plant named “Oxima” :)

Dieffenbachia (Dumb Cane) : one of the many “poisonous houseplants”.

I read this poem from one of my favorite books about Lexigrams.  I thought this would be awesome to share with all of my co-bloggers…  And perhaps you may find it interesting to lexigram a word, a name, a title or phrase too, which is really fun to do. :)

words divine, words sublime…  holy, holy words !
a picture is worth ten thousand words
so the Oriental sages say…  and therefore is the higher
nay, nay…  for shame !
for it takes words to tell…  even of that ancient claim
the hidden glory of every story
shines forth in words, words, words !
the miracle of the Easter gladness
overcoming death’s morbid sadness
is told in words, words, words !

words have wings, like birds
to fly through the sky of the mind

…  be ye aS wiSe aS a Serpent
yet aS harmleSS aS a dove…

words…  those mysterious scribbles on a page
holding the wisdom of every age
the experience and teaching of every sage

oh!  the beautiful rhyming of the proper timing
of words !

powerful words, that ring with truth
words that sing, forsooth  !
yes, words that ring and words that sing
words of spring and every good thing…  like kitties…

For The Love of Haiku 9- Abandoned Garden

Keep dreaming, don’t quit!
Everything is possible
and I love  donut :)

yepiratemanagua says:

never let me go
she said in her dream to me
but it was too late

AshiAkira says:

Long left and forgotten
In sinful heart still waiting
For your warmth and light 

douryeh says:

Their names sail away
Their remembrance brings a smile
Under the moonlight

The latest health craze.
Slime-bathing removes wrinkles;
green is beautiful.

Lisa Summerlin says:

Nature and creatures
Both renewing my spirit
What’s up with that hand?

nightlake  says:

Murky water pulls me in
The cold hand of death beckoning
I take my last few breaths

She bathed in a bog
And her big chocolate donut
Got licked by a frog
(yuck)

 

Brook says:

Heart outside chest now
Misunderstanding widget
Still looking upward
