In your Light I Learn …

Jumeirah Open Beach

In your light i learn how to love,
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest
Where no one sees you,
But sometimes I do,
And that sight becomes this art.

What it Means to Dare Greatly …

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who
points out how the strong man stumbles, or where
the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually
in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and
sweat and blood; who strives valiantly;
who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error
and shortcoming; but who does actually
strive to do the deeds; who knows great
enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the
triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if he fails,
at least fails while Daring Greatly,

so that his place shall never be
with those cold and timid souls
who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Caterpillar on the Tree Branch

1011

Caterpillar, caterpillar

Where are you going?

Crawl, crawl

Will you fall off?

Hairy, hairy

Your skin is so furry

Itchy, itchy

Stay away from me!!!

Eat, eat

Make fat in your belly

Rest, rest

Find a leaf for a blanket

You’ll be, you’ll be

Beautiful butterfly for us to see!!!

Flashing Smile of a Gentle Child

005

Dazzling smile.
Eyes glittering.
Cinnamon skin.
Beauty stunning.

When you smile,
The world cease to round.
I see your eyes
And I see joy abound.

I stepped in your doorstep;
You wave, “Hello!”
And your smile says it so.

And when I bid farewell,
You wave, “Goodbye!”
Your eyes talking
As you see me go.
