Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Happy Fun Fri-Yay My Friends!

I don’t know about you but I’m ready for the weekend!

TGIF!

It’s been a long week and all good but you know the days when you wish you could get everything done and there’re aren’t enough hours in the day! This was one of them. Try as you might, you’re behind and you can’t see one thing you could have done different. Well, except maybe to comment less on your blog but that’s not an option. 🀣 I do try, I really do, but each comment is from my heart and yours mean so much to me. No wonder my letter writing has gone by the waist side. So, if you haven’t gotten a card from me in awhile or a comment on your blog, consider it lost or in spam. Hahaha Nah… now you know why, but It’s coming, I promise, so thanks for your patience. I sound like a damn politician. OH NO! 🀣

My friend David and maybe yours too, over at Skeptic’s Kaddish, recently started Partners Poetry where anyone that wants to can submit a piece of their poetry and he will capture the essence of your poem through his lens and write a piece back to you.

It all started when he and his good friend Sangeetha started writing together and they have had a poetry affair of the heart ever since. It’s truly quite touching. If you don’t know David, he is the King of trying new forms of poetry and is in the process of creating his very own. He is ingenious and never fails to amaze.

There are so many prompts that look like so much fun and I so admire all of you that participate, but I rarely have time, so I generally don’t . However, when David said he would love to have me write a piece, I was so flattered and wanted to, but questioned what I could possibly write to please him, since my writing is simply from my heart. If I have a form I wouldn’t know what it is. 🀣 I was quite pleased when one of his followers said it was almost a form of something or other that escapes me now.

Not only was this fun but I was soooooo touched by his very kind hearted acknowledgment of me that he expressed in his poem to me. I encourage all of you to submit a poem. It really was fun to do!

And one more fun thing to share before you read our poems below is I’m thrilled to share that my first piece of poetry submitted to Spillwords was accepted and will be published tomorrow on their site. If you miss it there, I’ll post it Monday on mine.

Excited to be featured on their site tomorrow

Spillwords.com is the home for all that live and breathe words, spilled or inspired, through literature of every genre, from writers and poets of every walk of life. A place where classic, modern, and contemporary writers.

Thank you very much David for touching my heart and your gift of the written word that continues to evolve and develop. We could all learn from his heart you feel through his concise yet meaningful comments when he says πŸ’– Cindy πŸ’– in my feed and I feel it from my head to my toes.

Poetry Partners #34

A poem by Cindy Georgakas of β€˜Unique Times with Cindy’

Force Quit
wires crossed,
keyboard crashed
Undo won’t do the trick,

Hit the off button
Take a break
Voices over flowing

No time to meditate
Insides fried
Overload

Data stored… not found
Storage full
Plastic bouncing

more money needed
Pick from a tree
Or get out your pen and paper

Brain freeze
It’s time fo y’all to leave
The synapses
Have stopped firing.

Respite found in tapping
My body and the keyboard
Relish in quiet moments

A sip of tea
Light a candle
I think I’ll head…
Back to bed.
Her verses flow freely
while sipping tea, thinking, 
before she shuts down;
nary a frown towards
friends around the globe;
her comfy robe swishing,
encouraging hope in others,
sisters and brothers, all;
kind mother to everyone;
busy day's done now -
night's begun; she's spent;
always so present, but
she descends into sleep...
rolling down steep slope
into deep, beckoning dreams,
her world's seams unraveling;
computer gleam goes black... even Cindy needs to rest.

Thank you truly for visiting today and your kind support which means the world to me. Have a Funtastic FRI-YAY and weekend. For me, this means regrouping and hanging out, of course a walk, writing and visiting you! Oh yes, and writing some cards. πŸ’ƒπŸŒˆπŸ’–

Blessings of Love,

πŸ’–

Cindy

on and on and

Or Even Stop All Together OH NO!…

Well… i Once Entertained A Poetry Pub
Online That Modeled Poetic Forms For

Us to Imitate and Oh My Gosh it Reminded

Me So Much of Math Equations Do The Paint (Watch IT All Dry)
By Numbers ‘Write’ And Ya Just Can’t Go Wrong With SMiLes Now…

It Seemed too Much Like School And Work of Forms in Systemizing

Cognition to
me Oh My Gosh
That’s What i Escaped
From After Work and School For Good HAha

Yet It’s True In Terms of Cerebellum That Science
Is Beginning to Find For ‘Good Reason’ Has Half
the Neurons of the Brain As that Relates to Moving
And Feelings Senses of Emotions Both Conscious
And Subconscious Regulating Integrating All through

A Real Dance of Life That Brings Song Next From the
Rest of Our Minds too… Yes Hehe And of Course that
Big Cerebrum of Think Above With of Course Right and
Left Mind Hemisphere Considerations too Left Grasping
And Labeling the World For Order Right More Holistic Yes

With More Nuanced
Emotions than Fear
And Anger And All
The Discontent and
Hate When Order Falls
Through The Cracks and
Chaos Comes Next to Adjust to too Left Brain Pissed

Yes As Art Helps So Much to Frame Our Experiences
in Social-Empathic-Artistic-Spiritual-Interpretive More

Right Hemisphere Ways of Mind Processing our Experiences Now
Additionally the Task Positive Network Of Our Mind And How the
Default Mode Network Inhibits Task Focus Allowing Us Dreamtime Now

Anyway Generally All Metaphors for Yang And Yin Balancing As Usual…

We Need Order to Find Our Way We Need Art to Enjoy Loving FLoweRS of Life

Sure We Need As Sages of Ages Show A Balance Still of Yin And Yang Now For Real..

Anyway, i Don’t Do Haibun, Haiku, or Kung Fu Anymore Perhaps i Never Did As i Still

What a beautiful heart you are – the first thing that comes to me after reading this post, so very giving and resourceful!
I am with you about giving comments on blogs – it is sincerely from the heart when I take he time πŸ™‚ I to have never tried to write any poetry in particular form, but do suspect I might have covered some forms unknowingly. I absolutely admire those who keep so much understanding of poetry forms and produce incredible works of beauty. That is an impressive creativity to me, as much as my heart mind refuses to attempt to adhere to any form – it will come as it wants to come or not.
I thoroughly enjoyed your collaboration here – both poems are beautiful complements to each other. Look forward to reading your publication on Spillwords!!

Cindy, pairing your poem with the first picture is marvelous. “Undo won’t do the trick.” That is terrific line that would have been unheard of forty years ago. It is the most magical button or icon ever invented – undo. So, when it does not do the trick, we are screwed. I am sure many a bad marriage would love the “undo” button. Of course, this would be passed the annulment period, which is a nice invention in its own right.

So, with this in mind:

“My love for you is gone
Undo

I wish I had not left my old job
Undo

I wish I had not given the Nigerian prince money
Undo

I wish I had not clicked on that link
Undo

Oops, undo is not working.
OK, Alt+CTRL+Del.”

Great blog and how exciting for you! I’d love to do something like that; I just never seem to have the time to get everything in that I’d like. Reminds me of my old organ teacher. One day he asked me if I practiced that week and I sheepishly replied that I didn’t have the time. His response was classic: “You have all there is!” Wow – is that ever true! That’s why I spend more time writing than doing anything else. Going to take a peek at Spillwords right now. Congrats! Have a fab weekend! 🌟 πŸ’•

“So, if you haven’t gotten a card from me in awhile or a comment on your blog, consider it lost or in spam” I’m lookinf for your comment but didn’t find anywhere πŸ₯Ί

And such a meaningful poem that is. Congratulations Cindy

You’re doing so many great collaborations. And, I wonder if you can do atleast one for us too, like a Guest post or something else. I know it maybe tok much to ask. But I’m curious. πŸ˜…
We both can be a good politicians together, I guess.
