Shalom

To all ladies

smilingjohne's Blog

Respite one might call it

The first gleam of day at dawn

But it breaks silence of tender night

And the cord of harmony of moonlight is quietens

Yet while in the beauty of fireflies glows

In the joy or lattitude we are caught

In the tenderness of the humble moment

In the comeliness of your face

In the entanglement of emotion between us

In your affection, my sunrise,

Yet I am still dreaming even though awake

With the cupid arrow lodged in my heart

My Shalom

SLEEP BUT PRETEND AS IF DEAD

Humble slumble lowers our eyelids at this twilight

When we retire from reality

All our luxuries and lacks, craving and losses

Struggle and leisure we forgo into the rigour of the sphere under the sun

While  all our dreams thin out as hope is wedged between successes and failures

After all is said and done, having act out off or on script lines of The Supreme Author

The last Chapter is closed and the epitaph is read out after the curtian is drawn

What stand out for you is your living or misliving

You Are Not Victim Of Hero Within You

‘What song will you sing if you are triumphant at your waterloo,

When you are victim of hero within but find peace with the valiant without

When in the stream of struggle even life tap trickle of solace

While in state of hopelessness faith find it feet

While in the degree of our rising is the potential of falling

While in silence we find strenght but in the noises within our power dwindles

When in the test of hope our spackle within at twilight set aglow

But at dawn our excitement of new day sunshine betrays…’

HARD WORK DOES NOT KILL

It is better you bear the yoke in the time of your youth than beg in your old.

So get to work.

Dont be lazy because only at this time you can prepare for ur old age

When you wont have strenght to work,

When a single sweat can make ur blood pressure rise, and

When a slight worry  about failure and anticipation of success makes heart beats audible ,

When disappointment and favour contends for your feeling,

While the  lost of your youth cannot be regained

While at the twilight of life you reflect, with richness of your golden hair,

0n the past best or worst lived.

Pls, Work.

Into the Forest (a story in 50 words)

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss/186-9330870-3070316?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=9781491895290

A Wilderness of Words

Trees like a beating heart. Trees like a beating heart.

Life was noisy.

Snow fell, and the woods beckoned —

It’s quiet here.  Come in.

Sure-footed, she blazoned forth.

Light slanted through the trees like a promise,

A golden haze whispered, Stay.

Standing beside three trees, red as beating hearts

She found a home inside herself.

Quiet to last a lifetime.

n.b.  The photo came first.  I wanted to see whether, not only could I write a story in exactly 50 words, but could I create that story inspired by the photo.  I like a challenge.  Thanks to the WordPress editors for this one.  It took me nearly a week to do it.  Hemingway, I am not.
