‘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.
So much love to you, Cindy❣️
And to you David!
Thanks again for the fun and making my weekend!
🤗 Cindy 🤗
Beautiful poetry💕great job to both of you🥰✨
<3 thanks, Amber! <3
Yes, thank you Amber!!! 💖💖
💛 Tim 💛 ~ thanks!
Thank you Tim!
Have you done one yet?
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. 🙂
same exact thing for me, Mike!
oh thanks so much Mike! It was truly a delight of capturing the essence of the other and the joy of writing with someone. I see why David started this.
Oh great, just great.. thanks for letting me know truly Mike as I’ve been so busy I haven’t even informed word press yes as I was hoping I would wake up and it would fix itself. I’m just now up for another go around and then wasted time is a commodity right now. Copying and pasting your comment now though and building up the stamina when I have a minute to let them know or brain dump 😂😂😂 Have a great day our friend! 💖
Love the first poem and it’s response from David. You both did justice to each other. 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
<3 thanks, Sadje <3
awwww thanks Sadje… I’m so happy you found it so.. it was like getting a surprise package in the mail when I saw it! We’re both grateful!💖
You’re both are very welcome.
hugs and love 💖🤗💖🤗

Thank so much Grace! I saw you over there too,. It was much fun! I stole your publishing idea but then decided I wanted to share them here too. 💖😂💖
You are so welcome, Cindy . It sure was fun. I totally understand, mine had been recently published, which would have been redundant to repost.Great job, my friend.💕🙏💕
I gotcha .. it really was. Well mine sorta was too. I don’t often do the prompts and still get confused with pingbacks. 🙈😂 Thanks a lot always!!!💖
My pleasure, dear Cindy.💕
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?
Glad you got to see his work. You know I’m not sure of the name but he is reinventing the wheel daily and yes he has a lot of attributes for sure!! 💖
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.
How wonderful, David. I’m sure you are no sluff at mathematics, though. It seems that you have a definite poetic streak.
🤎🙏🏻 thanks, Marsha 🙏🏻🤎
I think he’s being modest.. 😎
I would imagine. 🙂
That was wonderful, Cindy (and David). What a fun poem and response. I love these collaborations. 🙂
Thanks Diana.. it was a joy and yes so dear of him. Yes, the are truly a terrific way to bring everyone out to play.. agreed!💖
💚 Diana 💚 ~ thanks… that’s very kind of you 🙂

Welcome, Cindy 💖
These are both wonderful poems. I enjoyed them very much. I am also a wordsmith and I’m sure many people think I’m very strange. I’ve been told I speak in riddles.

You already know that you are one of my very favorite poets and in this post I was reminded again of your originality – joy – flow – and digestible word offerings
awww thanks so much again Yvette. I’m so honored! 💖💖
I am not sure you realize the gift you have with words – well maybe you do
You are so kind Yvette! I always am humbled by your appreciation. Thank you so much!
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.
Anyhow – it was just special to meet another Cindy G!
Oh wow what a cool story and such divine timing and guidance it sounds Yvette! I’m soooo sorry to both of you. Soooo sad about your nephew. maybe he is helping her granddaughter. One way or another heartbreaking for those left behind…. the were needed elsewhere.
Awww and Cindy G is a friend of mine too. there was a Cindy and Gregg ( my husband’s name) at the wedding Sat too. Actually, we’re friends..
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
Congratulations Cindy and both your poems were beautiful. A wonderful collaboration. Keep it going.
Thank you always Kamal for your support. Happy you liked them!
You are most welcome Cindy ❤️❤️
Thanks so much ! 💖💖
Welcome Cindy ❤️❤️
Beautiful style of writing,
