Exceptional cartoon character
Ever gloomy donkey
Yearning for help
On Robin friend
Remains always depressed
Even when helped

P.S. I feel helpless writing about this Acro as I don't watch cartoons that much. I googled it anyway and hope it helped me.

Over sumptuous meal
Under tree’s canopy
Then some beer

Like hungry skunk
Indecently got drunk
Kept them groggy
Expeditiously felt hazy

All got dizzy

Longing for sleep
In few minutes
Gradually felt dazed
Heading to dream
This crazy day

Oh, Men!!!

Folks, before I will go on a holiday a couple of days from now (wish me luck and happiness buddies...*wink, wink*:)......I would like to post a kilometric blog and I hope I will not lull you to sleep reading this. It is a mixture of some thoughts that may make you smile, that may make you hate me, especially the guys (peace!) and that may give you second thoughts (for the young at heart) especially the ladies....:)!!!

It took me several days to pen this, and then I found out that I can go on and on writing about men, (Oh, Men!), but I may be harboring ill-feelings if I won't stop just for the right period!!!Lols!!!

So here buddies, fasten your seatbealt and let's have some kind of fun...(not really) coz' I know every other guy who'll read this will start bawling at me helplessly and in silence (I am out of reach, you know!) and if it would be possible for them, may start cursing me under the sun! Lols!!!

To the ladies, I admonish you that you must heed to me if you wish to have a happy life, because I wish that you must not or should I say:

Don't love a talkative man
he always feels he has
the gift of gab!

Don't love a boastful man
when all you have to do
is take the winds out of his sail!

Don't love a mean man
when all he has to do
is embarrass you infront of his friends!

Don't love an elusive man
he will keep you guessing
when he will come to you!

Don't love an old man
he will be too happy
he found the best homecare in you!

Don't love a poor man
you will always feel
hunger pangs in your stomach!

Don't love a silent man
when all you have to do
is put words into his mouth!

Don't love a bespectacled man
your beauty is useless
as he is blind as bat!

Don't love a broke man
he will always keep
a tight rein on your expenditures!

Don't love a brainy man
he will only have
an endless debate with you!

Don't love a masquerading man
his character could only
stir up a hornet's nest!

Don't love a poet
if he writes a poem for you
it will just be pure fiction!

Don't love a moron
you will only regret
how foolish you are!

Don't love a desperate and irritable man
small words you say would always seem
like a red rag to a bull!

Don't love a naughty man
he would be whistling at the sight
of the beautiful girl next door!

Don't love a young man
you're just as good
as a sugar Mom!

Don't love a pretentious man
you'd be surprised
he's just a wolf in sheep's clothing!

Don't love a bemedalled man
he may always have the
tendency to blow his own trumpet!

Don't force your man to love your blogging world
you can't make a silk purse
out of a sow's ear!

Don't love a Scrooge man
he has no right
to treat you less of a person!

Don't love a romantic man
he will only promise you
the moon, the sun, the stars above!

Don't love a thoughtful man
he might think
you're a gold digger!

Don't love a good samaritan
once he bumps his head on a wall he would realize
it was just his spur of the moment decision!

Now, what's left for you to choose from? NOTHING!!! But hey, I have no right to keep you from your happiness! Lols! You have the right to choose the best and before you plunge into the abyss of pure bliss (as what you think), please don't forget to leave a suicide note! He he he!!! Peace to all!

Happy reading! Hope I made you smile even for just a fleeting moment!!! See you in two-weeks' time! Hope to be back soon, earlier! Promise!!!

Give them kindness
Reach be affectionate
All they want
Need and count
Devotion from us
Prayer that lasts
Always give attention
Respect not condemnation
Expect God's blessings
Numerous and rewarding
To compassion given
Sacrifices well rendered

What Sunny Days Can Bring

One late afternoon
after arriving from office
I went outside the house
and saw children happily playing
with their jumping rope
though it was not as sunny a day
the temperature was so cold
the cool breeze brought a chill to the bones

And with a strong desire to get warm
I prodded these three lovely lil' girls
that I play and have fun with them
so I jumped and jumped as two
held the rope on both ends
and the youngest aged two
joined with me in jumping

What a lovely sight to behold
an old Mom like me
trying to have much fun with the
lovely and cute little girls
all were giggling and shouting with glee
as they see me jumped, jumped and jumped

Oh how happy it is
to feel like a child once again
it gives a calming effect
to frayed nerves after a day's work
it relaxes and stretches muscles
to my real great comfort

"We will do it again"
I promised these three little girls
and they jumped with much glee
with such a promise I made.

Vanity I felt
Overwrought and unquenched
Indolent and unhappy
Chastening feelings mildly
Exploring my thoughts
Such foolishness fought

Thursday, January 21, 2010


Can you extend
Or lend hand
Many are dying
Poor children crying
Asking for alms
Seeking without qualms
Such painful reality
In every country
Opulent must care
Now should share

I Wish!

I wish
I was sailing away
to find the right place
where I belong
to find the needed solitude
I so longed for
to find the one who can love me
with a love so pure and right
I wish!

Gigantic icebergs melt
Leaving planet earth
A catastrophic place
Causing immeasurable damage
In God’s creations
Every concerned nation
Rise be vigilant

The Voices

Visually she was not mistaken. She saw it with her big brown eyes. Her eyes cannot lie. There were Gabrielle and Lucifer beside her. Lucifer looked so deceiving in his smiles while Gabrielle smiled innocently at her.

Obediently she listened to both of them. "Miriam, you're beautiful, attractive, intelligent and of course look tantalizing in my eyes", Lucifer whispered. "But for quite sometime now you're sad. You looked like you've lost some precious toys and fumbling on every nook and cranny in your room, but can't find them. Why don't you go out and have some fun? Snatch the first guy you would meet as you step out on the pavement. Go disco dancing and drinking until the wee hours," he said, and added with a grin, "Then do some naughty things with your guy".

In Gabrielle's wish to comfort Miriam and to negate those devilish insinuations of Lucifer, she whispered into her ears "Oh, don't listen to that moron dear, he'll only ruin your life. Remember, life is not a bed of roses. At some points in your life, you become weak, fragile, vulnerable to your feelings. It's just that we need to be strong to overcome these feelings because I know that God will not give us trials that we cannot hurdle or surpass victoriously. When God closes a door, He opens a window, right?

Confused and bewildered, Miriam doesn't know to whom she'll listen. Lucifer's prodding was so tempting and Gabrielle's counsel was so good. She felt  safer continuing to brood on her disappointments. 

Entangled with such thoughts, she suddenly heard Lucifer hurling invectives against Gabrielle. "Who the hell are you? I just wanna make Miriam happy and you could only say and utter Godly words to her. Your pieces of advice will never make her happy. Veer off from her, now!!!!" Lucifer shouted at Gabrielle.

Silently Gabrielle cried but hid it from Miriam.  She was not there for her own comfort but to encourage and uplift Miriam's spirits.  As Gabrielle turned back to Miriam she realized Miriam poised a two-bladed knife above her chest.  "Miriaaaaaaaaaaaam!  Nooooooooooo!" screamed Gabrielle.  Miriam was panting, gasping for air.  Her lungs frozen.  Her stomach churned with terror.  Desperation soaked her clothes in sweat. She groped for the knife.  "Where is the knife,” she whispered.  She stole another tight breathe. “Where is that knife?”  Knock, knock, came sounds from her door.  "Mom, you're late now, aren't you going to office?” her lil' lovely Princess asked.  "Oh no . . . yeah, I will, thanks Sweetheart," she sighed.

Soothing warm weather
Utterly refreshing; pleasant
Many rainy days
Mindful farmers pray
Earnestly giving thanks
Relief for crops

Rain showers evoke
An unexpressed glee
Impulsively I dance
Natives going wild

Gloomy life's stage
Reaching old age
Oh the inevitable
Wishing it's beatable
Incessant are pains
Numbness of veins
Giddy goes brain

Outlive I wish
Longing more bliss
Dying is nightmarish

Facing a large noisy crowd
And started to sing loud
Catching his breath in high tones
Err he missed the right notes
So his audience booed aloud

Their relationship has been indurated

by faults
they learnt to forgive
by mistakes
they learnt to realize
by distance
they learnt to accept
by shortcomings
they learnt to fill up
by blames
they learnt to do away with
by fights
they learnt to lessen and avoid
by misunderstandings
they learnt to patch-up immediately

And came up with a healthy and loving relationship!

The crime committed
Unusually detestable and
Remorseless and was
Noxiously been done

Although so tragic

Bothersome and truly
Loathsome to victims
Instead authorities did
Never try any
Decisive efforts to

Execute the full
Yet reasonably fair
Execution of laws

Indurated by Time

Century-old elms
Indurated to endure
With nature and time

This is my first serious attempt at Haiku Writing, of course with the help of Yousei Hime. She suggested that I submit it at David L. Harrizon's Blog (the prompt for this month is Time), and I just did. But I wish to share it with my readers here in my space.

I Believe I Can Fly.....

Let me sleep, let me sleep now...
And dream a wonderful dream
That I have wings and I can fly
Fly high up in the sky
And soar like an eagle
Carefree, powerful like an eagle
As free as the wind

Let my mind works in leaps and bounds
And attain unprecedented success
In this place called bloggersville
A place where there's a unique meeting of the minds
Great, wonderful, writers' minds

Where each and everyone who are part
Can understand the language they speak
They might come from different worlds
And speak a diversity of thoughts
Yet still understand each other

Wings, let me fly
Fly high up in the sky


P.S. My mind did fly high and won again badges for the month of December 2009. It was really an achievement for a neophyte like me (5 badges in a month). And let me share it with you. It is an honor, really!

Thanks so much dear Big Sis Amias....I Love You!!! (Note: Most Active Poet of the Month is equally shared by me and The Amateur Poet of Impromptu).
