When they sleep...  

Friday, October 31, 2008




Once gazed at the closest person when sleeping.......
If not yet, tried just once to gaze at them when sleeping.

At that time that appeared to be the expression was most natural and most honest from someone.
An artist that when in the stage was so pretty And glamour then could be still appearing plain and far different if she was sleeping. The person was cruellest in the world then if he has slept will not appear his cruel face.

Pay attention to your father when he was sleeping. Realised, how the body that previously solid and strong that is currently increasingly old and frail, how did white hairs begin to illustrate his head, how wrinkles began to be carved on his face. This person that daily worked hard for our welfare, his children. This person that real carried out any from our stomach was full And our education ran smoothly.

Now, changed. See your mother you. His skin began to be wrinkled And the hands that previously soft caressed- caresses the baby's body us, currently rough because forging lived that was hard. This person that daily arranged our requirement. This person that was most hard-working warned And complained to us only because of compassion And love, And unfortunately, that often we were wrong interpreted.

Please gaze at the face of the beloved people... The father, Ms, the Husband, the Wife, the Older Brother, the Brother, the Child, the Friend, All Of Them...

Feel the sensation that emerged afterwards. Feel love energy that flowed to be slow when gazing at the face that is fallen aslip. Feel the love vibration that flowed to be swift when considering really many sacrifices that were carried out by the people for your happiness.

The sacrifice that sometimes was covered by the small misunderstanding that whether why always visible big. Miraculously the Lord arranged so that the sacrifice could appear still through their honest faces when sleeping. The sacrifice that sometimes tired but was reluctant to be revealed by them. And the face expression when sleep then expressed all of them.

Without words, without the voice he said... "How tired is me Today". And the tired cause? For who he tired ? Actually was us. The husband who worked hard to seek a living, the wife who worked hard to arrange And educate the child, arranged the house. The older brother, the brother, the child, And the friend that passed days liked And the sorrow with us.

Think about sweet and bitter memories that had happened by gazing at their faces. Felt how the happiness And feeling instantly went out if remembering all that.

Imagine what will happen if tomorrow their Day "the dearest people" still do not open his eyes, forever...

Imagine what will happen if tomorrow they "the dearest people" still do not open Their eyes, forever...

Making Poetry Writing Fun and Easy
Poetry is a an art form that has been used for centuries to express ideas and feelings in ways that other forms of custom writing are not able to. Some may argue that the days of meaningful and important poetry are gone, but there are still millions of amateur poets out there attempting to express themselves through the rhythm of beautiful words. If you happen to fall into this category, or you are a student who is required to produce poetry in English class, these tips can help make the experience much more enjoyable.

Identify the Form of Your Poetry
There are numerous forms of poetry to choose from, each with their own rules and regulations of usage. From the haiku to the sonnet to free verse, each particular form of poetry has its own merits. While some forms of poetry are more popular than others, do not be influenced by the choices of other poets when choosing the form of poetry you wish to express yourself with. Once you have chosen your particular form, familiarize yourself with its form and rules before attempting to write. This will take the guesswork from your poetry before you ever begin writing.

Identify a Role Model
Choose a poet that writes in your chosen form to get an idea of how he or she uses certain words or phrases to elicit responses. By reading and absorbing as much as your role models material as possible, you will be better able to produce material of your own. However, it is very important that you develop your own individual style of poetry - do not simply reproduce your role model's writing style.

Identify Your Inspiration
This may seem an obvious step, but many would-be poets end up staring at a blank page for hours because of a lack of inspiration. Before those beautiful words will ever spring forth from your mind, you must identify a source of inspiration that will generate those words. For some it may be nature, for others it may be love, for still others it may be the pain of losing someone important to you. Regardless, identify that inspiration and focus on it - you'll be surprised how quickly the words will appear once you have done so.

Identify Your Mood
Nearly all poetry is designed to express one's feelings or emotions toward a particular subject. As described above, the poet will identify her subject, but she then must decide her mood toward that particular topic. For example, there are many different moods that can be evoked toward the topic of love. Some may express the intense euphoria experienced toward the beginning of a romantic relationship, while others may choose to express the feelings of safety and familiarity from a love that has lasted for decades. Identifying the mood of your poem will help you to decide which particular words will describe the mood you are attempting to express.

Seek Feedback
While there may be some talented poets out there who are able to produce masterpieces on their very first attempts without a single re-write, most poets need to make changes to their poetry to improve their first drafts. To help with this process, it is permissible to seek feedback from individual that you allow to read your early work. Get as much feedback as possible before attempting any re-writes, to allow for as clear a picture as possible as to what images your words evoke. Once you have an idea of how the outside world is interpreting your poetry, you will know what steps to take to make sure they are interpreting it in the way you intended.

History of poetry  

Poetry as an art form that may have predated literacy. Some of the earliest poetry is believed to have been orally recited or sung. Following the development of writing, poetry has since developed into increasingly structured forms, though much poetry since the late 19th century has moved away from traditional forms towards the more vaguely defined free verse and prose poem formats.

Poetry was employed as a way of remembering oral history, story (epic poetry), genealogy, and law. Poetry is often closely related to musical traditions, and much of it can be attributed to religious movements. Many of the poems surviving from the ancient world are a form of recorded cultural information about the people of the past, and their poems are prayers or stories about religious subject matter, histories about their politics and wars, and the important organizing myths of their societies.

Poetry as an art form may predate literacy[1] Thus many ancient works, from the Vedas (1700 - 1200 BC) to the Odyssey (800 - 675 BC), appear to have been composed in poetic form to aid memorization and oral transmission, in prehistoric and ancient societies[2]. Poetry appears among the earliest records of most literate cultures, with poetic fragments found on early monoliths, runestones and stelae.

The oldest surviving poem is the Epic of Gilgamesh, from the 3rd millennium BC in Sumer (in Iraq/Mesopotamia), which was written in cuneiform script on clay tablets and, later, papyrus.[3] The Epic of Gilgamesh is based on the historical king Gilgamesh. The oldest love poem, found on a clay tablet now known as Istanbul #2461, was also a Sumerian poem. It was recited by a bride of the Sumerian king Shu-Sin, who ruled from 2037-2029 BC.[4] The oldest epic poetry besides the Epic of Gilgamesh are the Greek epics Iliad and Odyssey and the Indian Sanskrit epics Ramayana and Mahabharata. The longest epic poems ever written were the Mahabharata and the Tibetan Epic of King Gesar.

Ancient thinkers sought to determine what makes poetry distinctive as a form and what distinguishes good poetry from bad, resulting in the development of "poetics", or the study of the aesthetics of poetry. Some ancient societies, such as the Chinese through the Shi Jing, one of the Five Classics of Confucianism, developed canons of poetic works that had ritual as well as aesthetic importance. More recently, thinkers struggled to find a definition that could encompass formal differences as great as those between Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales and Matsuo Bashō's Oku no Hosomichi, as well as differences in context that span from the religious poetry of the Tanakh to love poetry to rap.

Context can be critical to poetics and to the development of poetic genres and forms. For example, poetry employed to record historical events in epics, such as Gilgamesh or Ferdowsi's Shahnameh,[5] will necessarily be lengthy and narrative, while poetry used for liturgical purposes in hymns, psalms, suras and hadiths is likely to have an inspirational tone, whereas elegies and tragedy are intended to invoke deep internal emotional responses. Other contexts include music such as Gregorian chants, formal or diplomatic speech,[6] political rhetoric and invective,[7] light-hearted nursery and nonsense rhymes, and even medical texts.[8]

The Polish historian of aesthetics, Władysław Tatarkiewicz, in a paper on "The Concept of Poetry," traces the evolution of what is in fact two concepts of poetry. Tatarkiewicz points out that the term is applied to two distinct things that, as the poet Paul Valéry observes, "at a certain point find union. Poetry [...] is an art based on language. But poetry also has a more general meaning [...] that is difficult to define because it is less determinate: poetry expresses a certain state of mind."

Money not anything  


Money will buy a bed but not sleep; book but not brains; food but not appetite; finery but not beauty; a house but not a home; medicine but not health; luxuries but not culture; amusement but not happiness; religion but not salvation; a passport to everywhere but heaven.

Love is so powerfull  


Love is so powerfull because being loved causesone to love oneself. Nothing contributes to the self-image more than being loved by another. When the words “I Love you” are expressed to you for first time, your world blossoms; your heart glows with inspiration, confidence and thoughts of the mountains you can move.
It’ more than an emotional kick; suddenly you like your self more than you ever have before

Do your best effort  


As the old man walked the beach at dawn, he noticed a young man ahead of him picking up starfish and flinging them into the sea. Finally catching up with the youth, he asked him why he was doing this. This answer was that the stranded starfish would die if left until morning sun.
“But the beach goes on for miles and there are millions of starfish,” Countered the other. “How can your effort make any difference?”
The young man looked at the starfish in his hand and then threw it to safety in the waves.
“It makes a difference to this one” he said.
