Thursday Poets Rally Week 23 Poetry Awards (Special Notice)

The Most Consistent Poet Award

The Most Persistent Poet Award

The Most Admirable Poet Award

All Three Poetry Awards are awarded to YOU,

Week 23 Poets Rally participants…. You Know Who You Are…

Please take the awards and enjoy them by clicking on the link below to confirm your participation this week.

Thursday Poets Rally Week 23 Post:

For Previous Poets Rally participants (check the link below) , please feel free to take any awards out of these three and enjoy!

I have been spent hours or days preparing Rally posts, creating awards, visiting poetry blogs to make sure you are on track…But I eventually realize that I have worked too hard, pushed poets too often, and become too tough on some of you.  I believe in self motivation, I myself judge via your comments left on fresh poets blogs, but not everyone is happyI can not make everyone happy, I check on all poets, sometimes the perfect poet winners  2 or 3 times a day during Wednesdays, Thursdays, …or on Friday before I make final decisions about next week’s nominations, or how to assign awards and finalize the nominations… Some of you take it positively, some feel discouraged when they could not receive all three awards…while some think I am bossy, annoying, or pushy…..

Please forgive me for my mistakes…

Please click on Thursday Poets Rally on right top of my blog to view previous participants (week 1-week22).

All poetry links are contained from above, if you are a previous participant, you are given permission to pick awards from above three.

Jingle will NOT tag or notify you individually….Please claim and have fun!

I value everyone’s support.

U R The Best!

NEXT week, Jingle will take a break, which means NO Poets Rally…

Thursday Poets Rally week 24 may be resumed during week of June 24 -30, 2010,

Under some circumstances…Changes are to be made to fit changing situations in my blog.

Compassionate Blogger Award

Your Creativity Makes Me Smile Award

The last two awards are for all of the blogging friends who

Thank You.

If you have been here with Jingle, please feel free to take the last two

awards and enjoy!

Happy Father’s Day to All Father all over the world.

Family Fridays-Happy Birthday 2 “A Poem A Day”

Jingle has copied and pasted A Poem A Day’s Birthday Post here:

“Today is my birthday!!! I’m sosososososo excited I can’t tell you. :D But it also got me thinking–when I decided to write today’s poem early so I wouldn’t forget!–about expectations and how some people deal with them. This poem is my own personal response to the questions that started jumping up in my mind.”

“Today” by A Poem A Day

No more waiting
Today is THE day
The day you’ve been counting down
For months
For years
And you stayed up until midnight
Just to say
Today is TODAY

But now
What do you do
Now that the wait
Is over?
Do you start the next countdown
To the next milestone
Or do you revel in today
And leave yourself hanging tomorrow?

My friends, I chose to
Love today
For it will not come again
And the feeling it brings
Is unique in your
Mind, soul and heart
And no matter what the other countdown is for
It will never be for TODAY

I’ll deal with tomorrow tomorrow
For I have no doubt
It will bring its own surprises
And I’ll great it with a smile
But today is today
And this is my moment
And I will live it

Thank You for letting us know your birthday via this post…

The Perfect Poet Award 4 Thursday Poets Rally Week 23

The Perfect Poet Award week 23

The Perfect Poet Award

@Jingle’s Thursday Poets’ Rally week 23.

Congratulations! The following Thursday Poets’ Rally members have won the nomination for week 23 award.

This is a weekly awarding event.  If you did not fulfill the requirement either on commenting for fresh poets or fully accept previous award, then you lose the nominations even if you are nominated. Thank you for the understanding…Writing excellent poetry is only one factor to be perfect,  your involvement in the community, your commitment to follow the rule or your reputation in keeping your promises matter to EVERYONE, and to Jingle, thus if you expect the award, but did not get it, think about your own performances…Even if poets who fully perform well, they may not get the nomination due to the competitive condition here…Jingle gives poets special admissions at times due to their previous contributions, but  that does not mean she  will do this for good…excellent poets are many and only 30%  can be highlighted here.

Thursday Poets Rally Week 23 Poem Post-Perfect Poet Award Acceptance

Once a snowflake fell

On my brow,

I blinked my eyes

And it cries

And wet my eyes.

I liked it,

I missed it,

I kissed it,

I tasted it.

My act made its family happy,

One by one,

Two by two,

The snowflake’s siblings, cousins, and friends

Engulfed me.

They are so cool,

I got happy 2.

I squeezed them,

Loved my new friends,

The fun has No ends.

They feel No shame of being plain,

And transformed into spring rain.

Oh, My!

I got so very high,

And I did not realize why:

All of a sudden,

I was frozen!

Under the spring shower,

I turned into a flower.

V Is 4 Victims-Secrets R Revealed Under Hidden Video Camera

Mathew and his wife Dove have been married for more than a dozen years. They share two beautiful children, Ken and Jen, a nine year old boy and a seven year old girl. The family of four are immigrants living in the U. S.

Mathew has a tenured job at a university in Fort Worth, Texas. He loves his wife and believes that life is so far perfect for him.

Until the fateful day comes, that’s when his wife’s younger sister Daisy comes to live with them.

Daisy is single. She has broken up with her 2 year long boy friend because she finds out that he has been cheating on her. Daisy is hurt and after she finishes her bachelor’s degree back in her home country, she comes to the U. S. visiting her sister, wishing to get accepted to a university in the U. S. to change her fate.

Unfortunately, she has been rejected by all three majors she has applied. Thus she has to face the music: go back to her country to find a job, or stays in the U. S. by changing her status from visiting relatives to student.

Dove loves her sister and considers her sister an innocent victim. And Dove has called her parents via international phone service to discuss the situation. Of course, American dream is not easily to be given up. Dove is asked to do whatever she can to support Daisy. It is an order from her respected parents.

Thus, on this lovely evening, Dove showers herself fresh and clean, and lays herself gently in her husband’s arms the way she always does…Mathew is about forty years old, he always feels pleased by his wife’s full breasts and delicate skins…he gets high almost instantly, without worrying about whether or not the kids have fallen asleep, or what Daisy has been doing in her guest room, the couple start their love making with deep passions.

They make some noises, but hunger and thirst overcome fears. They continue doing it, fully enjoying their heat.

Suddenly, Dove pushed her husband away while he is at his peak point.

“What’s the matter?” Mathew whispers, his hands gently squeeze his wife’s breasts.

“Nothing, I simply want to stop.” Dove tells a whopper, she wants to make a deal.

“I know there must be something, I can do anything for you, dear.”  Mathew is out of breath…He almost begs his wife.

“I want you to help my sister Daisy.”  Dove knows that if she does not spit it out, she may not have another chance.

“On behalf of you, dear, I will help her.”  Mathew whispers in her ears.

“How?” Dove is curious, holding back her desire for her hubby.

“Trust me, I will figure out a way.” Mathew pulls his wife closer, placing his lips on hers, with their bodies pressing hard…

With the help of Mathew, Daisy is accepted into the university with a major related to Mathew, Daisy is not really interested in studying under her brother-in-law, but she has no other options at the moment. Hopefully, she can switch her major later the year…

Daisy has trouble with her spoken English, she struggles a lot with her homework assignments…Thus, at home, with the support of her sister Dove, Daisy has easy access to Mathew, they would discuss homework solutions at the study before dinner time, with Dove being busy in the kitchen preparing for dinner.

Everything seems so fine, everyone is getting what they want. Daisy would play with Ken and Jen during weekends, help them with their homework assignments. The family of five goes to picnic at Locale Park at times…Dove is happy..

Until one day, Dove wakes up in the middle of the night, finding that her husband is not sleeping next to her. She realizes something, something really bad. Yet she holds her horses and pretends to be asleep. And when her husband comes back to their room and lays himself gently next to her, she breathe evenly making sure he does not know she is awake,

And the next day, she played the video camera that was installed in her house a few years ago…Dark secrets are revealed under the hidden camera. Her heart sinks when she sees that her husband has been going to her sister’s room every night after she is asleep.

She pretends knowing nothing.  She swallows hard when her sister Daisy smiles happily at her when she takes out the most festive dishes in the evening.

And the next day, after Mathew and Daisy come home, they can not find Dove, but see a note left on the table:

“To my dearest husband and my most darling sister:

I was diagnosed with breast cancer and the doctor said that both of my breasts must be removed to save my life. I have decided to take one third of the savings and go back to our home country to get treated…I will be gone for 2 or 3 years…please take good care of the kids and wait for news from me.

With love,


And Dove has simply disappeared…Mathew can not quite his job, and Daisy is in the middle of her studies …They choose to remain, while Mathew has tried his best trying to contact his wife via other family members, but no one ever sees Dove.

Dove has no breast cancer. She has figured out a way to get out of her failed marriage, and she has used some money to change her appearance so that nobody recognizes her. Then she has used the rest of the money to open a private business in a far away town in her home country, her goal is to be independent, stay single, and give love to those who are poor or disadvantaged…

After two years, a lawyer comes to visit Mathew and his marriage to Dove is announced to be over.

“I am a victim of all these.” Mathew cries, but no one hears him.

Who is the victim in this story? You decide.

Deep in the sea floor,

High above the Northern star,

If you explore with friends’ support,

You travel twice as far.

How do you interpret manipulation here? Does it mean that you can talk people into your agreement? Do you have to force your perception about the world on someone specific?

The answer is NO!

The word of manipulation could be deceptive! No one can control or change those who refuse to be controlled or altered. But, for those who look for directions, for those who seek friendships and partnerships, you have the opportunity to reach out, share your common sense, and give birth to lives in your shared interests.

If you know the trick of manipulation, you are more likely to be successful. Your thinking skills, your self-managing skills, and your language and problem solving skills would have found a place to mold. The uniqueness in you attracts those who admire you closer to your life.

As a result, your life is empowered, your destination is in sight! Because of manipulation, transfiormations take place, your dreams could easily become reality.

Do you agree?

You are welcome to join for a heated discussion. Have fun!
