WRECKAGE OF A LOVE AFFAIR

I was in love with the pen,

tasted of the passion of its ink,

sheltered in a pile of books,

as dusk paved way for the brink

and of the ferns’ grip divide gave way to dawn’s shine with rust glory

reflecting the wreckage of a love affair upon pile of worn slates and heaps of torn papers

Image

its the end of a love affair

bloodshot eyes of Shanghai’s caligraph

broken heartpiece of her polygraph

ink arsenal filled with red cries

with leaks from its table cask plundered by its grapheme.

As I sat in a small café eating lunch yesterday, a man entered with his dog and headed back toward the bathroom, his dog following him. He nodded to me and said “Que aproveche” (Bon appetit) as he passed, then waved a vague signal in the general direction of his dog, who then promptly sat down about 6 feet from me. The man continued on his way to the back of the café to the bathtroom, and his un-leashed dog waited patiently for him, occasionally glancing over at me, probably envious of my succulent jamón ibérico. I got to thinking about how normal this whole scene was to me: the stranger telling me to enjoy my meal as he passes me on his way to the bathroom, the dog entering the café unleashed and then sitting patiently for his owner to return…where am I? When did these things become so…

BLACK BEAUTY

From the lands of the black race

Where the Sun shines with grace

And glows on her ebony face

To reveal the fine trace

Right from Africa emerges the black beauty

More precious than diamonds of Sierra

And gold of the Zulu

With sweet fragrance of her Aloe

With a smile so inviting

Her gorges so intriguing in her Ankara attire

She stands endowed with Umthwalo

Upon the sand of the Sahara

Beyond the banks of the river Nile

Across the land of Oduduwa

Within the land of the blacks

Right from Africa comes black beauty….

TALE OF A VOYAGER

Exploring the wild wide world on a lone voyage,
Sighting the wonders of day alone,
And the magnificent views of night with no one to share with,

With the bright shine of sunrise at day,
I stand at bay,
Siphoning the cool air into my lungs,
While fronds dance to tunes of ocean’s breeze,
And birds chirps from distant trees.

With the moon so full at night,
Ands arms afold from evenning chills,
I ventured alone at dusk,
Voyaging across the territory of solitude.

SNAPSPIRATION

I was going through my photo collections when i realized how inspiring a photograph can make an observer be.
Each photograph gives different meaning to different observers which is made possible by numerous factors like artistic imagination of the photographer,location,natural effects on set,studio set effects,costumes,the type of equipment used by the photographer and other co-factors.

Check out the pictures below and enjoy the beauty of the beauty of each shot.

How Does She Know That You Love Her?

How Does She Know That You Love Her?

Besides a great song from the Disney movie Enchanted, this is the
key ingredient to a relationship. How does she know that you love
her? If she does not know that you are there for her, care about her
deeply, or want to be with her–she will find another one just like you,
but better. If this hasn’t happened to you, just give it time. You too
will fall victim of this crime if you don’t take precautions while in your
relationship.

Why Buying Items Won’t Win Their Heart

My favorite question I always receive is, “I bought her flowers,
chocolate and jewelry, but we’re not any closer than we were before.
Why aren’t we?” The real question here is “Why are you buying
stereotypical items when she more than likely has been dropping
hints left and right for you?” Although most every girl loves flowers,
chocolates and jewelry, the best gifts are from the heart. Example:
my girlfriend was having a rough day at work and was starving, so I
brought her lunch on her break to show that I really cared about her.
We then sat around for an hour talking about whatever we desired
and had a great time. From then on, her day became that much
better. Although I bought her something, I listened to what she was
saying and jump on the opportunity. Never miss an opportunity to
show them how much you really care about them.

Listen

As a drum instructor, my favorite thing to tell my students was
“listen.” How can you ever get any better if you don’t listen around
you? From the drumline, they had to listen in to play as one in
complete unison. In a relationship, listen to the other person for
perfect communication. I recently had my relationship end due to
lack of communication, so I can easily preach… LISTEN LISTEN
LISTEN. Listen now or regret later. Girls love to through out hints. If
they want to be high – take them on a hot air balloon ride. Feeling
tired? Let them cuddle with you outside or on the bed. Want to do
something new? Make a game out of things you have already done.
Listening to your partner is the key to all relationships.

Demonstrate How Much She Should Trust You

As simple as sending a text that says “thinking about you”, or just
randomly stopping her mid-sentence and saying “I Love You.” You
need to show her that she is the only one for you and that is all you
need. If not, then someone else will show her the love and affection
that you never did. Don’t let her slip away. Show her how much she
means to you now or pay the price later.
Simple Things Have The Biggest Impact
Remember those text I was telling you about? More than likely, that
will have a bigger impact on your girlfriend than you think. Jewelry
and Five Star Restaurants are great, but those relationships are
superficial and made of money. How is the Kim Kardashian marriage
going? Do the little things to show her that you are her one and only.
If she ask you a question about another girl, simply answer that
you’re the only girl I see. Feel free to compliment her anytime you
wish. Even if she is looking awful, that girl is the most beautiful
person in the world. She needs to hear these things on a daily basis.
Make her feel like nothing else in the world matters to you–only her.
