School is out,
"Hurray!" Kids shout.
Forget about academic acceleration,
Time to enjoy summer vacation.
Take long naps
as thunder claps;
Block out noises and ashes
when lightening flashes;
Clear your browse history,
both satisfactory and unsatisfactory;
Stop using the printer,
Restart your computer...
As you unlearn the world,
You've become a child.

On this 17th day of July,
I decide to give myself wings to fly:
I will be visiting Mars
and collecting fireflies with a million jars;
I will be landing on the Moon
and eat my dinner without a spoon;
I will be knocking at the door of the Sun
and offer him a bottle of homemade wine;
I will be playing hide and seek with stars
and land on earth with no scars…
I will listen to the whispers of summer wind
while I begin to read your poetry, beautiful and grand.

The voice of the poets
call our wandering mind,
Through haunting ghosts
and echoing lands,
The power of nature is to be shed,
The pain and suffering of humans are to be heard.
Via the fights of wars,
and the crown of kings,
we see joy, sorrow, and wild things.
What dreams shall we pursue?
What faith shall we carry?
Set your own goals.
No passion bids us wait,
The voice of the poets is the voice of our fate.

Sam has been Tammy's dog ever since she was three.
Now he's gone, Tammy keeps thinking of Sam, how he wiggles his tail to greet her from school and fetches Frisbee when Tammy throws it. Not to mention the time they spent walking in the park...
Will this tomato plant help Tammy grow new hope?

Red with freckles,
Plump in sunlit gleam,
Fresher than pickles,
Perfect if served with ice cream.
Sisters and brothers,
Desires in their eyes,
Without permission of their mothers,
Swallow strawberry pies.
Succulent and sweet,
Juicy commotions !
My submission to Jingle Poetry Potluck Week 42,
And to Blaga’s spring favorite,
My favorite fruit is strawberries!

Send kindness to people who
think that ignorance is the sole sickness
impacting their future.
Share insights with people who
insist that individuality is the only way
to promote freedom.
Yet in life this may not be true,
when love bonds two
to form ONE family that is divine.
My entry to the following memes:

Theme Thursday: 1+1=2?!,
