Orange #photography

Walking in the park the other day, mom spotted these beautiful orange flowers. Snapped them and here they are!


Orange

by Adriana

Orange with a spark of light,

shyly hiding in the green

exclusively for my eyes’s delight.

Now I sit here, in front of the screen,

thinking of something nice to write

so I can show you the beauty I’ve seen.


Thank you for reading!

I hope you enjoyed my photograph

and these verses paragraph.

I perhaps I made you smile or laugh

how about a LIKE on your behalf!

Poem – Synced Skin

It’s a beautiful piece of art, but I can’t keep on wondering if this is how we look from the artist eyes? All forced to be the same? All kept in order as the artist commands?

Synced Skin

By Adriana

Looking at these cute soldiers tag I stop and think

If carefully made, how come they all have pale skin

If effort and time spent, why square-shape and synced

Equally sized, but unable to lower or rise their chin

Is this supposed to be? Unable to decide even to blink?

But who is to care? They are merely art and committed no sin,

Or are they us? with brains moulded and lives written in ink?


Thank you for reading!

Chrysanthemums in the Sky

Aren’t fireworks wonderful? but the real beauty of them is the share them with special people, and why not share them with that special someone.

Chrysanthemums in the Sky

by Adriana

 

Eyes wide open as a curious child

wishing to stay open after each spark.

The shapes in the sky have my heart beguiled

like luminous chrysanthemums in the dark.

 

Of these sparkling flowers I have seen a hundred,

or perhaps millions, and they are always fantastic.

This time, something was different and I wondered

“Are the lights the ones making me so enthusiastic?”

 

Then I felt your sight not to the illuminated sky but on me,

and I knew that my happiness was because of you that night.

Quietly, we stared at each other, feeling in love as one can be,

but we could not stop on blinking after each of the fireworks light.

Poem – Cotton Candy for the Soul

The world is rushing, the world is stress, and it makes us lose the joy of the simple things. But it is those simple things that make our souls stronger and healthier. There is nothing more refreshing like taking a walk in the afternoon while only thinking of the beautiful colors of the flowers, or the song of the birds. The hectic world makes us grow too dull and we let ourselves be beaten forgetting that our souls need laugher, music, and sweeties.

Cotton Candy for the Soul

By Adriana

 

You are not so grey,

but the life around you is monochrome

And every passing day is dull monotone.

 

But the sun shines in each colourful ray,

And the flowers bloom without dismay

How pretty the’ve grown.

 

You are not so silent

But the voices around you are resentful

And of kindness they are often forgetful,

 

But the sounds of nature are so vibrant

And the birds sing in melodic alignment.

Listen and be grateful.

 

You are not so sour

But your soul need some sweet caramel

And some cotton candy from the festival.

 

Let’s go to the fair and forget the hour

Enjoying the sun even if the rain showers

Take a break amenable.

 

Listen the laughter

Couples in love and joyous children playing,

Parents smiling, even though they are paying,

 

I see you grinning, it is not so bad a disaster.

even your eyes will be smiling a little after,

Forgetting the crying.

 

Should we skate,

Ferries wheel or an exciting roller coaster ride?

Don’t worry or be scared, I am here by your side.

 

Adventuring eyes have always been your trait,

It is worrying when instead they are full of hate,

And look like you’ve cried.

 

No, you are not so gray

But your soul needs laughter, colors and melody

And don’t forget about sweet pleasant remedy.

 

Caramel popcorn, ice cream or sweeties buffet,

Maybe cotton candy while walking along the quay,

What a great amenity!

With your beauty my pace slowed,

Poem – Angelic

A poem from the challenge word “Cure”. Proposed by the exceptionally admirable blogger and poet Grexxen. Thank you for encouraging me forward!


A story about curiosity, bravery, and about overcoming all obstacles.  A story that evidences the power of love.

A poem on the shape of a AABBCC

I give you,

Angelic

by Adriana

 

In one of the angelic realms of heaven so high

Where light, peace and harmony live a beautiful lullaby

Resided a sweet, brave and caring angel, so curious

That for his human to guard was so laborious

For his appointed task, he always performed his best.

No wonder his human was thriving and overcoming every quest.

 

In the land of the angels, human eyes are never seen

They are all oblivious of height, race and color of skin

Only through prayers a human’s voice is heard

For what is important with he heart is transferred

Their realm is on earth, but there is a barrier so thin

Humans can not cross it, and angles rarely fly in.

 

But our sweet, curious angel to heaven’s border came near

Even though, his angelic life he treasured close so dear.

But his heart was unsteady and lured by God’s creation

Dragged his wings too close to the earth mortal damnation

With a little blow of the wind his angel shape was gone

In less than one moment, into a human he had transformed

 

Naked and nameless for a while he wandered

To the earth rules he now had to abide, he pondered.

Without his wings he needed a little effort for walking

Yet, seamlessly he soon started fluently talking.

Not long after, he acknowledge his human shape

Keeping in mind that soon back to his realm he had to scape.

 

Guarding his human was his life’s responsibility

It was what he most wanted, so he would find the feasibility

In the coming weeks, to many churches he assisted

Nothing worked but for a long time he persisted

He enjoyed the world and knew that it was not a mistake

Yet, his angelic duty could not be weakened or opaque

 

But now he was only human, and time made he grow weary

So he kept telling to persuade himself this innocent theory

“The rules are rules and a human I have now to remain.”

He thought with a bitter smile and a tear that could not contain.

Yet he was satisfied and eagerly his new life he would embrace

Like this becoming the first angel to travel the world in slow pace.

 

To the towns in the mountains, and the ones across the rivers wide

Tirelessly aiding all beings alike without leaving heaven’s guide.

While learning from humans their complexity and behavior,

He slowly understood that in themselves is their only saviour.

So, his unclear purpose on earth brought doubt and overwhelm

What was the reason that he had to remain steady in this realm?

 

Greatly he had contributed to make the world from all evil, clean

Yet, there was no more satisfaction from all the places he had been

At this moment, inadvertently he came across a new experience,

Dark hair, ruby lips and pale skin was this majestic appearance.

With her forest-green like eyes she made time and space fade

And when she smiled, he felt as his heart had been swayed.

 

The first acquaintance was awkward, but soon, close friends they were

Yet words for a confession came none, as he could only stand and stare.

Even a heaven’s mightiest warriors, of  this kind of courage have none

For angels do not need it,  they can be alone

But after meeting her, by himself he never wanted to be

And by knowing her, to stay by her side was his only plea.

 

But she was born smart and had eyes of a good observer

Effortlessly realized that his intentions were full of fervor.

But away she turn her head for she was submerged in regret

As her heart had been shattered and wasn’t healed yet.

Felt like a deadly disease accompany her during the day

Loneliness reside in her soul and wasn’t going away.

 

She fought trying to get better by keeping friends around

But insecurity swam in her veins and her heart surround

To get rid of the killer-depression virus she had no choice

Since sadness had mortally blocked her cheerful-lively voice

Grief was spreading and happiness was an ineffective lie

And yet everyday woke up and gave the world a big smile

 

Of her deadly condition, our sweet angel oblivious remain

As his angelic intuition diminished when to earth he came.

Aside of his love he deeply admire her heart, strength and wit.

He believed in her and encourage to her dreams never quit.

As it turns out, someone believing in her was the cure bottle

Now that he complemented her, the air supply no longer throttle.

 

Her condition stabilized and stop to worsen.

Soon she would be back to be a fully healthy person

His presence and lovely smile had brought her cure

He was right what she needed for her life so obscure

Finally her everyday was brighter

Once again she was her own fighter.

 

Planning and dreaming to stay together flourished

They needed each other for a happy life nourish.

But the rules are the rules and they must be obeyed

A cruel twist of life suddenly arrived to invade.

For his coming to earth was not a random circumstance

She was his human, who he had to guard at all chance.

 

When he heard her prayers of the truth he realised

That it was all part of the plan of the heaven’s device.

When her faith had faded away and he was sent to Earth

To help her find the way  before she encounter death.

Now that the mission had ended and all been completed

Going back to heaven left their hearts broken and depleted.

 

Tears of hopelessness rolled down and reached the floor

When they hugged for the last time on the sunset shore.

She softly kissed him and slowly closed her eyes

And when she opened them, he was gone to the skies.

She would rarely spoke of the painful, bitter goodbye

For days she would not sleep or eat but only cry and cry

 

Since that day, he had to guard her from his land

Unable to even see her, because that is banned.

Her voice is her prayers he would always hear

Wishing from his heart that they could be near.

But the rules cannot be broken, twisted or bent,

So, there wasn’t any plan that could their situation amend

 

She fervently prayed to the archangels so mighty,

Being careful of  her words and speaking politely.

She pleaded to have him back or at least to have a trial

But how could she know? He never spoke of the guile.

But since she loved him so much, it was easy to conjecture

She realised of  his life on heavens and earth adventures

 

For the first time they angels set up an official court

And for many days they discussed, spoke and revoke.

Her intense prayers, they could not longer ignore

Pleading for him to come back and be with her forevermore.

A decision was taken and there was nothing to be done

He was set free and could now to human’s realm be gone

 

They were equally each other’s cure from mortal death

And for many years they lived happily together on Earth.

Now, I sat to write their story for your heart’s delight

Of a kind of love that will forever live in the heights

I am true witness of this curious case of love’s reich

For in my veins there is angle and human blood alike.

-The end-

Poem – Sight Guards

July 5th, 2017

A poem from the challenge word “GUARD”. Proposed by the exceptional blogger and poet Grexxen.


In a world where love is taken for granted, the act of actually protecting and guarding love ones is not as appreciated as it should be. Feelings, emotions and friendships need to be sheltered.  When trust is laid on somebody, an intrinsic responsibility of guarding that trust is also is also laid on the-now guard. Silently the guard acknowledges the other person’s vulnerability, and now has the honour to secure it.

Sight Guards

by Adriana

 

A long time back, on a pale autumn’s day,

we set sight on each other, unable to look away.

Perplexed we stood in awe

for in our eyes we saw

eagerness to be wondered of all coulours, even gray,

and an unexplicable light that lures excitment here to stay.

 

Beguiling eyes, so smart

that speak a language to my heart

that tell no lies,

have no disguise

So, I guard all their stories since the start.

 

The power of your eyes is like a potion,

that stops the world and all its motion.

Of hues as the lagoon,

and bright as the moon.

They are deep and vast as the esoteric ocean,

guarding their wisdom is my only devotion

 

Your sight has a voice that speaks and even sings

of lost number, beauty and forgotten high kings

your eyes tell a story

of truth and glory

that I consistently guard with unbreakable strings.

 

Years passed and I crossed the wildest of desert dunes

Travelled the six continents by only hot-air balloons

Climbed the highest mountains

Swam in the deepest fountains

But I could never forget the time of those magical afternoons,

so siletly I promised to forever guard your eyes and their musical tunes.

 

Today, although silver shades cover my head, you came and confessed

that all this time being a guarding of my eyes was also your quest.

excitement in my eyes flared

when into our eyes I stared,

and saw the new life that was waiting for us to eagerly address.

Poem – Bulgogi

 

This a poem from the Challenger: SaltyAvocado, the words is “Bulgogi”. It was an interestingly funny topic, because it is a wrap prepared with Korean seasoned meat sold at COSTCO. It is a very tasty and very filling, but the best part is how cute “Bulgogi” sounds.

Not only I was challenge by this word, but also Grexxen, so let’s see how he does.


It is a poem on the shape of: AABB

and now I give you

 

Bulgogi

 

This topic as random as it may appear

is a challenge word from a person so dear.

Proposed by this girl nice and sweet

who knew how to make Grex and I compete.

 

Bulgogi is the meat in this wrap so good

that you wouldn’t believe it is Korean food.

Cheese and seasoning are mixed inside,

something this good should spread worldwide.

 

At the sound of the word, one has got to smile

that’s why I am making this poem freestyle.

But the more I write I want to stop and get to Costco

and with my dear friends share a Bulgogi pronto.

 


Liked it? What do you think? Let me know in the comments, and why not become a challenger?

Poem – A Scooter Story

This is a poem about my tiny white scooter. She came to me on Nov.11th 2009 and ever since then we became partners in crime. When we ride together, it is as if we are one and no one can defeat us. Riding my scooter has been one of the best parts of Taiwan. It is the excitement, it is the adrenaline, it is the wind in my face, it is the speed, it is everything.

I love my scooter, even though she isn’t the newest or the better-one, she is for me, she is the best scooter ever. I hope you enjoy my poem and perhaps some of you share similar feeling with you own ride.


This is a poem on the shape of AAA.

The topic proposed by the sweet and great friend blogger, the saltyavocado.

This topic was proposed, because this is one of the things we can experience the most while being in Taiwan, scooters, a sea of scooter. Not one, not a few, but uncountable scooters. Making Taiwan’s traffic messy and yet smooth,  convenient and very importantly an adventurous.


A Scooter Story

by Adriana

 

A long time ago on an autumn’s day

I came to you and you came my way.

You looked and we knew this wasn’t fey.

 

With inexperience, you asked questions odd

And it seemed to me that you never rode

a machine like me in your country abroad.

 

But you started my engine and I swear

That I’d never felt such passion and dare

Yet gently, of my faulty leaky parts you took care.

 

Not long after, without many doubts and reflections

You took me around without knowing the directions

But we managed to go back after more than a few questions

 

In time, you got me a blue sticker that says “Guatever”

And soon after a curious-gecko one to wear wherever

But our uniqueness is in your colorful helmet now and ever.

 

Of tiny white carcass, but full of unmatchable speed

That’s how you trained me, to be unbeatable in any need

But always avoiding anything that could make us bleed.

 

As time goes on, we go to uncountable places together

We never cared if there was cold, sunny or rainy weather.

But I know you like you ride with your jacket made of leather.

 

I am exactly made for one, not for three and not for none.

But I have to admit that recently it has been a lot of fun

When Grex, Jess and you and hop and ride on.

 

You hold tight to each other as if you were going to fall

But you know and trust that even though I am small

I am sturdy, defiant and keep balance above all.

 

One day your time to leave me will come

But our adventures and stories will live on

I and will remain the great scooter that with you I have become.

 


I hope you enjoy my poem.  FOLLOW my blog if you did. Now go on and give me a LIKE!

Poem – An Uncontrollable Smirk

Imagine the love of your life being claimed by time. How many memories wouldn’t you have lurking about? Then years after you look at a picture and you remember all the feelings, all rushing out, leaving you empty but knowing that when you had the chance you made each other happy.


The Challenge: Uncontrollable

Proposed by: Grexxen, the amazing poet and even better friend

This is a poem in the shape of AABBA and this style is called a Limmerick


An Uncontrollable Smirk

By Adriana

Hidden in the dust I found this old picture,

startled I hold it while I felt my emotions a mixture.

I stared into your eyes,

blue as the high skies

and at those lips making that handsome gesture.

A half smile and a half too serious,

An expression everlasting mysterious.

Sweet smirk

Of lips that lurk

Without fail and  make my heart delirious.

It was a sweet, loving yet sadden bitter smile

With your mysterious beguiling spirited style

Everything was there,

Even a touch of dispar.

Because you knew destiny had a plan so vile.

Without the honor of wars as in olden times

Time claimed  you without the sound of chimes

Now without fear

And more than a  tear

I contemplate this sadness that my heart confines.

Without further doing I lose restrain of all the tears

But then I remember all the laughter of the good years.

It is you that I miss

Having you was a bliss.

Then I close my eyes and with an uncontrollable smirk I cheer.
