Carefully Displayed

By Adriana

Brown stripes, as a tiger’s fashion

sweet petals of pinkish passion.

One is uniquely displayed,

above the others was carefully laid,

held by a golden stem

almost kissing a dove-like gem.



Thank you for reading!

Luringly Calling

By Adriana

 

I was in the garden the other day,

when your beauty beguiled my way.

It was your colour so fierce,

and your white centre pierce.

A center so luring, so intriguing

You are calling upon me, like a pleading.

 



Thank you for reading!

Joyfully Shared

By Adriana

 

Yesterday is finally over,

with an over dose of chocolate and wine

Now I feel over-fed and a little hangover,

but it is ok, because having you makes me feel fine.

 

Where I come from, Valentine’s is a day to share love

with family, friends and all whom you care or sort of.

But love should be given not only for one day, but all the time

So, help me spread happiness with these joyful orchids and this rhyme.



Thank you for reading!

Lovingly Together

By Adriana

for G, with love,

 

Of these flowers sweet and rare

I took this picture with great care.

The other bunch decided to stay beside

While only these two stayed side by side.

 

They remind me of you and of me,

Of how being together feels like being free.

Seeing them makes me think of us two,

Of how we overcome all we’ve been through.

 

And our story barely begins

We still need to to do so many things.

Like these two flowers, we will keep together to the end.

And today I am happy to say you are my boyfriend.

 

I love you!

Dearly Cheerful

By Adriana

for G, with love,

 

As Valentine’s quickly comes near,

I hope my flowers bring a little cheer.

 

Although miles apart across the sphere,

there is the love one I hold so dear,

 

but there is something that makes me lose fear

We will be together this time next year.



Thank you for reading!

Humans cannot match your perfect creation.

Bashfully Playful

By Adriana

 

In the garden a great party is being held,

all the flowers scents can be smelled.

Glamorous and splendid can all be seen,

yet these bashful ones keep out of scene.

Between the leaves they playfully stay,

just fo the observants they come out to play.

Elegantly Odd

Oh! Orange flower of far away lands,

Core like a mother with a child in arms,

Delicate

And elegant

But your oddness no one understands.

Enchantingly Disguised

By Adriana

 

Hidden between the leaves, there is something of tiny size

curiously I approach, just to get a enchanting surprise.

Jellyfish out of the sea?

Or a fairy roaming free?

But this natural wonder is an orchid in disguise.

Vintage Wheels

Having heard of this event several times before, I was very excited to go, and let me tell you I was not disappointed.

It  was a grand reunion of vintage cars, Buicks, GMSs Dodges, Mustangs’, VMWs, all from the 60′ and 70′.  The oldest I saw was a ’63!!! Let me show you some pictures.

 

The interesting and probably best part is that most of these cars are still in use and the owners just come and park them here for the exhibition. And to tell you the truth, I was not aware that there was so much people with vintage car passion in Guatemala.

This time it was held in the Mars field (campo de Marte) but I have also heard that it is made in San Cristobal and Antigua.


 

These cars are a demonstration that a machine can be so much more than a tool and in this case, more than a simple mean of transportation. It is taking an automobiles to the next level, art!

Having this in mind, I give you the following Limmerick

 

Passion Wheels

by Adriana

 

Although I am inside, a machine that sets me free

wheels and engine that become an extension of me,

It’s my passion

and also fashion.

After you see this beauty, won’t you agree?

 

To finish up my blog post, I would like to share with you my favourite car in the exhibition. I like it not only because the model is remarkable and it makes me think it is a toy car, but also because of the delicate details on the front.
