"quality evaluation (related poetry): when appreciations shared by the maestro @Ali Anani and the best collective nectar contributors @Sara Jacobovici @debasish majumder @Devesh Bhatt (positive comments from them are like pats and applauses). Also there are some more who are perfectionists whose engagement (at least a word mentioned in comments spaces are worth..) and hoping surely they will also join to contribute potential value to this superb poem".

    Dive deep in the waters,
    break yourself free
    Fill each and every cell
    with determinate passion
    Let the bubble of joy burst,
    and eliminate all pains!

    Very Beautiful poem Tausif. Anything that connects us with water has healing powers . And a swim like Lisa says is just a heavenly connection with water.

    Thanks for tagging me @Tausif Mundrawala, what a great poem. Water does get rid of impurities, so glad you used it for this piece. I spent so much time swimming in Lake Erie as a kid into my late teens, then the Ocean once a year with my daughter. I miss it, maybe that helps to center a person more. Aside from my own thoughts this stood out and I think I will pass it on to my husband who submerges himself in work so much he forgets to come up for air- "Fill each and every cell
    with determinate passion,
    by loosening oneself
    to commitment's submission."

    Let the bubble of joy burst,
    and eliminate all pains
    which were like hell and worst.

    WE tend to think negatively of bubbles. However; your busting the bubblles of joy is different. Shared

    You are laying down great marks Joyce, great marks because of your touch and ultimately they will be felt even more greatly by those who are in most need of this touch.

    May this poem reach those who feel most out of touch, for in reading this, I acknowledge that world which needs this touch most and which has most assuredly received yours. Such are marks left in time.

    #14 Dear @Ali Anani so long as it creates metaphorical muscle and a stronger mind, I look forward already to 2020 because then that is the time to look back to today - if learning is easy, it is not learning - if reflection does not burn deep it is only a cheap orgasm and the word RUACH still means something much greater than any of us realize and it is certainly not an "orgasm" :-)

    #9 Dear @Ali Anani my views on mass personal branding are not a stand, they are a cry of pain, a cry of deep anguished pain, the kind of anguish citizens of the world are feeling right now because they are powerless in watching that marketer called Trump dumbing down America. I don't mind this kind of anguish or this kind of existential limitation because the net result is through it I am the one will get stronger. I will triumph from this pain, I am developing a smarter mind, spirit and body for encountering this.

    When the very Presidency of the United States has been reduced to the level of a marketer, this is an excellent time for me to encounter this relationship with mass personal branding. Do you think that Nelson Mandela was weakened because he was put in jail. Once Mandela secured his baseline which was not to get killed by the Apartheid regime, then the years he spent in Ellis Island with the struggle, is what made him.

    Once Mandela was released from a dumb political system, his captors had already negotiated their own survival with him and once they knew that Mandela would protect them, he walked out of his jail - thanking the people who imprisoned him. I likewise will thank those that imprison me - this is not a stand, just as Mandela was not making a stand, he was allowing the struggle to work on him, he embraced the struggle and when he was free, he thanked the struggle. As he said in his own words, it was the struggle that made ordinary men, extraordinary. By 2020 the dumb President of Marketing will be out and a new era begins in America - and the next three years are not definitely not a stand, it is merely an imprisonment - the best kind for a developing mind.

    #7 DEra @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- I know of your stand and I respect it fully. This is very consistent with your writing here "Personal brand is about being ADJUSTED, but I am maladjusted". In complex systems, small adjustments might lead to even more maladjustment. So, in practical terms I find myself on the same boat.

    I love your creative writing, Franci. Very nice! Copernicus once convinced the science community of his day that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Boy, was he ever wrong. It's more like we are an infinitesimal nano particle of one grain of sand on all the beaches of the world combined. Or, as the Carl Sagan once observed, "A pale blue dot" in the vastness of our own solar system.

    Lettered squares, on the keyboard rattle…
    Crafting tales, of pleasure and battle.

    A major peril, lurking with each stroke…
    Is an unclear tone, that leaves intention broke.

    For the very same words, can have different meaning…
    Depending on where, the emphasis is leaning.

    I have seen a few comments, raise prodigious ire…
    As uncertain gist, leaves much to be desired.

    This I have learned, from @Susan Rooks
    The Grammar Goddess post, deserves a second look.

    What a great poem and good timing with this! My favorite part (well I enjoyed the entire poem) "Words can do so many things,

    Give us wings or pull our strings.

    When we carefully choose our words,

    We can melt an army's swords. "

    We've all used words we do regret
    It's a learning curve at times, I bet.
    One can only hope through regret,
    we choose our words with thoughts of love and respect.

    Well done, Pascal. Seems we may have a blending of thoughts. I published this poem on my site 1/18/2017

    Exoneration of hapless souls

    Redefined obtainable goals

    A smidgen of musing in the mix

    A fractured world can be fixed

    Balanced hope must not be nixed

    Dear Franci, your poem is what I would ally with pictures of swans.

    I have had first hand experience with Canadian Geese - either when they snapped and ran at me fiercely or worse the one time I was a direct hit for their flying splatter of goo, then there was a time in a corporate headquarters that they had decided to create a nest on the roof and the company wanted someone to take them down, thankfully I watched the person who volunteered realize that this is no easy task and also the last time they would volunteer. So when winter time comes and I see that V formation flying South - that is when I am at most peace with the geese :-)

    THE TEXT OF TIME

    Where's the history of the beauteous world

    that published virtues in its form?

    Ah, now its an ancient in bygone pages

    which is so powerless to repeat in present times

    Enough! the world itself is heavily burdened

    and ready to disclose her chronicles

    with the sketches and summaries of evil

    and the text and themes of greater spoil.

    #46 'Wisdom' in this case, Mohd, is definitely in the mind of the beholder. I'll settle for wry humour.
    Our comments are our way of feeding others ..... and, in some cases, providing them with an opportunity to see an alternative path.
    Robert Burns (the Scots Bard) captured this uniquely with his poem "To a Louse", when he penned the following:
    "O wad some Power the giftie gie us,
    To see oursels as ithers see us."

    #6 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher... Please feel free to judge or critique.
    This is.more an outcome of introspection...i have repeatedly picked up words and judged/critiqued people on the basis of philosophy, in a country where almost everyone is a philosopher. Philosophy blends into the normal like its doing on social media.
    I wasnt the one being judged, but the one stripping down the double talk...made for an inconsistent timeline in my career.

    Thank you, Oscar. So I think you know how it is to feel a "flow". In german we call it to have a "flow". I hope in english, too. It means to fundirse con algo, olvidar todo lo que te rodea y quien eres. It sometimes happens to me when I am playing the piano or when I am drawing very concentrated. It is a really great feeling and makes your brain free from everything.

    One of my college crushes was simply because there was this guy who walked up and said : "Hi, my name is Dave, I am a poet." Well, you won't be surprised that he had little trouble pulling..... We worked together in the library and I got to watch this performance dozens and dozens of times. Makes me wonder if he's still doing it? But at the same time, I'd prefer to stay in the 80's and believe rather than find out via a quick google if it turned out differently.

    I can relate to this post. I love to write poems - some are silly, some show emotion, some rhyme and some don't. I like to relay a message in my poems or tell a story. In other words, I am all over the place with them. My favorite are haikus.

    I own a hive titled "I Started a Poem" where someone starts a poem and others finish it. In fact we have several bees that write poetry. Interesting post and I like your poem at the end. @Donna-Luisa Eversley @Ken Boddie @Deb 🐝 Helfrich @debasish majumder @Chas ✌️ Wyatt
