As I Open A book And Turn The Pages

As I open a book

And turn the pages,

I walk into lives of writers

Whose word engages.

As I intake soul food

And feel spiritually good,

I cannot help beaming

About some pleasant screaming.

As I scan the news online

To seek extra fun,

I warn myself

To be easy on stuff such as a elf.

As I play a game

That carries my name,

I am careful

Not to be too tame.

As I feel happy and able.

I mean nil harm to those who feel miserable.

Money shall not be everything

In a healthy living,

Harvest what one sows,

That’s how one grows.

One Way To Become Famous Is To…

One way to become famous is to be a witch,

For then you can swallow bacon by the flitch;

You can fly without knowing why;

You can be rich and out of ordinary folks’ reach;

You can perform magic without causing anything tragic;

You can stop an itch by adding w to see yourself as a witch.

If you are a bitch, not a witch,

you may not become rich.

Be careful, my dear,

Ignore those hurtful jeer.

Find a way to become tame,

And once win some fame,

change your user name,

Be a witch,

buy a horse,

Be Wise,

Don’t get a divorce.

Be a wise witch,

Of course,

Rise

Before sunrise.

*****

How are You?

One way to become famous is to___________.

I hope to read YOUR ideas and listen to YOUR wisdom of words.

cheers!

Sunday 160-I Spy A Fly In The Sky

I spy
A fly
in the sky;
You eat cake
all week;
He says
praise
to Daise;
She spends more
time outdoor;
They gazed
at these
trees;
We play
all day.

What can you say in 160 characters? (spaces included)

Thursday Poets’ Rally Poem Post (Week 10)

Don’t you agree?

There exists NO perfect tree,

There is No perfect college degree,

Perfectionism costs, not free!

***

I can try to be as perfect as I can be,

Someone else will always beats me.

No one is perfect, neither we,

Nor they.

***

When my love for you

Is true,

“You Are Perfect”,

That’s how I respect, inspect, and reflect.

***

Be as perfect as you can be,

That’s what others wanted to see.

You don’t have to always agree,

You need not to learn it with a fee.

Spring Trust – An Anniversary And An Award

The sunshine is your consciousness.

The beginning of a new life-

Spring

Is both exhilarating

And frightening!

Spring trust means realizations

Of letting go of old fears, hatreds, and relations,

And bringing forth hope or creations!

Every realization in you leads to spring time,

every impulse to hear your inner self is spring time.

Shake off the orientation of a victim of familiar circumstances,

See yourself as one of the  invincible substances.

Spring trust

Is spring moments when novel thoughts thrust.

Comprehending it is knowledge,

Recognizing it is wisdom,

and believing it is faith!

Spring Trust Award

According to Thom at http://tp4ww.com/an-anniversary-and-a-birthday/

Shakira has been celebrating her wedding anniversary with her husband Arnie yesterday. Happy Belated Anniversary #3 to You, Shakira and Arnie. I hope this event comes in the decades to come and have a sweet and surprised filled evening! 😉

With Amy:Round Robin Luck….

Family Fridays/Grandma’s 90th ….,

William: http://williamm49.blogspot.com/2010/03/daily-poem-visit-to-zoo_12.html

I will NOT miss Family Fridays. Here, I have written a poem about Spring Break, hope that you enjoy it:

***

Spring break is here,

What are you going to do, my dear?

Are you going to visit the zoo?

Or spending time in a heated pool?

***

Spring break it next week,

Teachers and students are taking a break,

What adventures are you going to seek?

Do you go fishing and boating in the lake?

***

I don’t know why,

I prefer NOT to fly.

I enjoy driving to places,

I love seeing spring blossoms’ pretty faces.

***

With a whole week to spend

To get refreshed in the end,

I would love to relax some more

And enjoy doing things I have never done before.

***

Spring break is here,

What are you going to do, my dear?

Please plan ahead,

Have some family fun instead!

Happy 90th Birthday to Amy‘s Grandma!

She looks cool and well, Please visit Amy to say Hello and

Wishing YOU all a Very Merry Weekend!

Thursday Poets’ Rally Perfect Poet Award Homecoming Week

Week 8 Winners:

Jingle will finalize the 12 nominations on or by next Monday.

Why?

As you all can see, NOT all winners accepted the award, I will give them more time, for those who refuse to accept or don’t appreciate this award, if they are nominated for the second time, I will have to withhold the nomination and place a different poet who are more likely to honor or cherish the award in the spot.  The whole idea for this award is to have fun, to encourage poets and their contributions on poetry and encouraging poetry in general.

So far, we have about eight (8) poets nominated, Jingle will nominate 3 or 4 more, if You are a previous Thursday Poets’ Rally member and would love to accept this award and follow the RULES in the bottom of this post, please comment on this post and I will consider it.  Your talent on poetry is one essential factor to win this award, however, attitude is more important for the whole idea!
