Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

I am so excited and proud to announce that my poem I’m a walking, talking, rhyming Bogomolny has been published on The Skeptic’s Kaddish. David (Ben Alexander) has also written a response that made my heart melt.

Poetry Partners #119

‘I’m a walking, talking, rhyming Bogomolny’, a poem by Cindy Georgakas of ‘Unique Times with Cindy’

Up & Atom 
words rhyming. 
People think I’m touched it’s true,
except
for those of you, who turn words too.
I search for my thesaurus,
nowhere to be found,
so I Google it.
looking for similes 
to make my day sound.
I turn over words
inside out,
toss them up, 
scratch them out, 
Get out the white out
empty slate, 
clean jargon, 
Everyday I do it again. 
A new form born, 
how many words,
letters or syllables?
My deck is stacked.
My mind is like a steel trap
Except when it gets brain freeze. 
My name is David
I’m a walking dictionary!

‘I’m a loving, open, giving Georgakas’, a poem by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

No form can contain my love,
Nor my giving nature.
All I do is straight from the heart,
As is everything I write ~
To you and you and you and you
Yes, all of you, to all of you
I am a friend, truest of true
I love you; I care; I read you; 
I share; I support all your dreams;
I offer you wise, gentle advice;
Heck, I make videos for you!
(you've watched 'em, right?)
My sincerity and cuteness
are totally of the hook, so I'm told...
Kindness unhinged,
If ya know what I mean!
I wear myself out;
I give to my children; 
to my husband; to our parents;
to our friends near and far...
The list is endless, it seems,
but it's all so very, very worth it! I have
absolutely no regrets
for this full, bountiful life I lead
full of love, from below and above,
full of you, full of all, full
beyond capacity ~
I'm loving, open, giving ~ 
I'm just little ol' me ~ Cindy!

Let’s write poetry together with David at Skeptic Kaddish

Please visit his site here as well to read our poems and to find out more about Partners in Poetry so you can join in the fun as well.

Thanks David (Ben Alexander) for creating this wonderful opportunity for writers to play with you and for our fun in words. What a heartfelt and fun exchange for me. David is so talented and truly has broken the record when it comes to trying all forms of poetry and even coining his own. His clever and ingenious way with words always leave imprints on all of his followers in aww, question, wonder and laughter with his clever twists and turns.

Thank you all for your support. 💕

And thanks to all of you who have let me know you are having problems leaving me a message on my last post. I believe it’s a WP issue as many others are experiencing the same problems. Also, I’m slowly getting back on board visiting so thanks for your patience.

Have a great week ahead.

💖

Cindy

This is a fun collaboration, Cindy, and David is the perfect partner for a poetry get-together. You each seem to have captured the other perfectly. Delightful stuff. 🙂

Also, I can’t comment on your blog directly–the error I received is the same one that seems to be going around on WP right now (I’m sending this comment via WP Reader). It says “Error: Please fill the required fields.” But there’s only one field available, and that’s the Comment box. Just thought I’d let you know the error is there, and you’re not the only one whose blog has been affected. 🙂

Hi Cindy, I looked up Bogomolny, and it looks like he was a math professor. Is there a new type of poetry named after him?

Marsha

He just explained that he named the blog after his father.

That was my Dad. I’m no mathematician, but I created my blog in his memory after he passed away a few years ago 🙂

Thanks for asking, Marsha.

Guess what? I met another “Cindy G” down in Florida last week ! And I told her that it was another sign that she and I would be friends because I connect with my Cindy G from Cali….
I will share more later because I will probably post about it….
But we also had something sad in common.
We both lost someone to Overdose on the day of feb 5th
She lost a granddaughter this year on 2/5 and I lost my nephew on 2/5 in 2017.
Sniff

Anyhow – it was just special to meet another Cindy G!

Cindy! How cool that there was a Cindy and Gregg at the wedding on Saturday – and that you are friends (and we used to have three sets of couple friends that were “Kim and Mike”
But lost touch with two!
–/
And I like what you wrote about how “they were needed elsewhere”
Oh and here in Virginia or current governor just had an “overdose observance and Memorial Day”
We were out of town for it but I guess There were some nice ceremonies
