The Treasure of Bliss

All are busy

In one thing and the other

Running after

One thing and the other

From the time they wake up

Till they go to bed



Have no time

For the inner call to listen to

Which is coming from the heart within



They’ve explored the universe,

New species,

Stones,

Cultures,

And much more

But alas! The heart remains unknown



A deep search must be within!

Dive deep into the sea of heart

And there’s… Continue

Identity

I'm more like anybody,
A common face however,
People refuse to recognize me.
I approach the Known with names,
I beg them to help
Make my name Known.
They just keep silence as if
Heard nothing!
What could I make this out?
A "nothing" pleading for
Nothing?

What if my name unknown
Remain unknown?
...no identity?

New Year’s Eve in Dingle, Co. Kerry, Ireland

New Year’s Eve in Dingle



Maria Ní Mhurchú



Night is the Angel of darkness

A bit like a crow

A bit more beautiful.



Stars hang onto her feathers for dear life

As she sweeps over the planet.

These look like babies

Except for their little black wings

And their stocks of fiery, white curls

Long and fabulous

A bit like a hippy

And almost as beautiful.



The babes play together

Shooting here and there

A… Continue

Dealing with drugs, the grown-up way.

This is not the first time someone has tried to demonstrate the folly of our approach to tackling the drug problem in our society and doubtless it won’t be the last. I realize too, that the emotive issue attached to this disease is probably the single most difficult side-issue working against our efforts. Put simply, emotions are not going to help us in the fight against drugs. Emotions are about as helpful as the present, outdated, unworkable, inefficient laws that our governments force the… Continue

Listen!



Amid the vast buildings

And the mist of noise

I look for my missing identity.

I recklessly wander here and there like

Set-free cattle on the road,

The passer by get angry with me

Disappointed, I beg for the people

To listen to my voice,

But alas!

My voice is silenced in the noise pollution.

An overview on Anita Desai’s “Clear Light of Day”

The Imagery of House in Anita Desai’s “Clear Light of Day”



Written By Rakesh Patel





I consider Anita Desai’s “Clear Light of Day” as a poetic novel as it considerably deals with symbols and suggestions. Her use of “the house” imagery is at the center which signifies dust, dullness and decay.



As the novel begins, you’ll notice that the house of the Das family does not change except decays. Like Anita… Continue

Happy Boxing Day

Hope you all had a nice holiday.



It's snowing here in Westmont...what a surprise, huh? Should stop around 5PM today, but still...it would have been better if this happened yesterday when we were staying at home. Oh, well, I guess I'll go snowblow the driveway in a little while. Have some errands to do.



Hard to believe that we're approaching the "end of the decade." Wow, 10 years ago we were all waiting for the global disaster that was Y2K...remember that? And it… Continue

a short christmas story

A short Christmas story

by brianmey ©2009



The day before Christmas, a 5 year old boy dressed in tattered clothes went strolling down a sidewalk towards a bustling business district which his mother often discourages him to be even near there. His mother had told him last night that she would try to get him a Christmas present which she promised when he turns five. But the little boy knows how much his mother needed the money to tie up the monthly expenses since he started… Continue

Till the End

The rush of the clouds towards the forest

And the darkness ensuing

Till the rain falls.

It’s a hope for all the living creatures

Far and wide



Now,

The forests have disappeared

Somewhere…

And so disappeared the rain followed by

To seek union

As if made for each other



Things have changed a lot;

The trees of buildings have grown

Everywhere, the blue streams of roads

Have sprout like seedlings

And stretched to… Continue

Poetries

I don't know if my poetries translated in English are well made. I send you these writings in the hope that someone tells me if they are understandable for a comment. Thanks





EZRA POUND (IN DEATH OF)



A foreign sun, leaving his heart

map of navigation, diamond artery,

for oriental destination and fine rivers,

vibrant at the motion of water

and graphic stone like the surfaces of molluscs.



And then, the flourishing notes in modern-ancient… Continue

Library Discards by Publishing Date, Are We Making a Mistake? - By Lance Winslow

By Lance Winslow



Most libraries do not have unlimited space, and most libraries are constantly buying new books. In fact, publishers count on libraries for a percentage of their book sales. Without unlimited space, the libraries must discard old books. But how can they choose which books to discard and which not to. Sometimes libraries will have book sales getting rid of those books which do not get checked out that often and where the… Continue

CAR SEX IN HIGH SCHOOL from THE SUN LOVES EVERY PLANET

I remember our first kiss

Your lips

On the back porch of your house

Reaching for mine

It was short

Sweet

No tongue

I thought about it all night

After I left



You knew

I would do anything for you

Sometimes I did

As we grew together and apart

Semesters turned into years

But somehow

We always came back together



The excitement I felt

When I found a note

In my locker from you

Made it… Continue

Post-NaNo Blog

It can be said that intense activity is the theft of time, or at least our awareness of its passing. No better proof of this for me than what happened on December 3rd. I woke up that morning, rubbing my fuzzy head, and thinking (I am not, as Dave Barry would say, making this up) “Wow, November already, where did October go?” only to feel like I’d been hit over the head as I realized that November was also already gone, given over to my baptism into the craziness known as… Continue

TRIBUTARIES OF THE SOUL from THE COLOR OF DREAMS

In

Slow moonlight

Under

The pyramids

She

Comes to me



Touching

Me

Deepest

As

We travel

Without moving



Her spirit

Unfolds

Opening time

Starlight

In

Her face



Mysteries revealed

Planets move

As

Do we



The sands

Of

Giza



The keepers

Of

secrets



Centuries passed

As

I… Continue

COCONUT from THE SUN LOVES EVERY PLANET

The hot Malaysian sun

Beats down on my bare chest

As I glance up from Hemingway's

The Snows of Kilimanjaro

To see an exotic woman

Walking towards me

Through banana trees

Her breasts

As full as the ripe coconuts

A man is cutting from high up in a tree

With wide swaths of his machete

As a curious monkey watches



I don't have my camera with me

It's in the hut by the mango trees

Overlooking the lagoon

There is no… Continue

WALKING THROUGH TIME from THE COLOR OF DREAMS

Walking through time

Thinking of you

Receding from yesterday

Turning towards tomorrow

Waiting

For

The sun

To

Chase away

My

Desperation

Inspiration

Reverberation

Pushes me forward

Past

The spawn

Of

Living carnage

Wallowing

In

Decadent squalor

Contained

Restrained

Some call it

Freedom





Dreams

Have a color

All their own

Swirling colors

Shake my… Continue

THIRD WORLD WOMAN from THE SUN LOVES EVERY PLANET

War





Poverty





Famine





Disease





Pollution





Deforestation





Overpopulation







Children sick with hunger

Famished

They lay in waste

Distended bellies

Lifeless eyes



Millions live this life

Every day

If you can call it that

It's more of a living death

That comes too slow

To a world that doesn't care

It's too… Continue

EINSTEIN from THE SUN LOVES EVERY PLANET

Isn't it phenomenal

That a guy no one would hire

To teach anywhere in Europe

A guy who worked full time

At the Swiss Patent Office

Was able to outperform

The best minds in physics

At the most prominent

Universities in Europe

To such a degree

That we don't even remember

Their names today?



One man working alone

Outside the intellectual establishment

That had rejected him

Came up with the most astounding

Theories… Continue
