Monday Afternoon at Three

I'll meet Guru Jad at three
I’m sure we’ll talk poetry
What’s new on the Soup
The latest wild scoop
While we eat under a tree

It’s nice to have a good friend
Someone who does comprehend
That words are sublime
And poetry’s fine
Our love for words a nice blend

Should have baked a carrot cake
But last night I stayed up late
We'll still have some fun
Get burned by the sun
Talk of Soupers who are great!

We might just mention you too
So without further ado
I’ll just say goodbye
Don’t miss me- please try
Cause I'll have fun without you! ;)

Eileen Manassian Ghali

PS….love ya’ll, but it sure is nice to talk face to face with a poet who is in the same PS community and who loves words as much as I do. Check him out at GURU JAD! ;) BTW...it is a glorious day in Beirut. Our campus is just blooming with life. Wish I could share the beauty and colors with you all. My beautiful jacaranda trees are about to burst into a profusion of purple color! Oh...I wish you could see it all! :) <3 Our Creator is simply amazing!

    Your comments on Drunk Chicken made me laugh (on which I've responded too). Definitely nothing profound... I was still getting the hang of writing when I wrote it... lol.

    Thanks, Abigale! I do love the simple things in life and am easily please. My husband is lucky! Just needs to take me for a long ride in the car. I need good music...the window pulled down...the wind flying in my hair, and I'm content. I'm low maintenance that way! Glad you could visit with me, my dear. Hugs!

    Yes, there are. The good thing is that one of them, Guru Jad, is a personal friend of mine who I get to see time to time and talk shop with! Thanks for the lovely visit.

    Eileen... The Creative.. Eileen... The Originative!!! How shall I thank thee? Let me count the ways..... The Limerick is highly superb... And our picnic was awesome as well! It was a fascinating day-out... And remember: " Trees have acute ears, Capturing laughters and tears, Absorbing joys and fears,......" :D

    GURU JAD, my dear. It was one of those special afternoons when everything is just picture perfect. Thanks for the yummy treats. You are amazing. We feasted body and soul. The campus is beautiful and breathtaking. Glad I could show it all to you...and please..please...get those wonderful pieces of writing PUBLISHED. Hugs

    Enjoy yourself. Good weather, good friends and poetry to boot - what's not to love? I have a friend who is a writer (not officially though). It's awesome to have someone understand you more and your interests... though he doesn't write in poetry but more novel-type stuff, at the end of the day, he still uses words as an outlet for expression. Have fun, Eileen!

    Thanks, Timothy. It was a splendid afternoon! Glad I could share it all with you. I'm thinking of sharing a like to an album on FB so you can all see where I live. That way, Timothy, you can say you really did "visit"! Glad you have precious friends as well!

    Is good to see Auntie have fun, enjoy yourself out in the sun, to you and your friend my best wishes I send, may your laughter and joy over-run. That's for next time cause I'm a day late lol. Talking of trees, I thought long and hard on that and in my minds eye saw you as a weeping willow lover. Am I good or what? lol. Take care, Richard

    WOW! A lovely poetic treat from you, Richard. This is truly a treat! Yes...the weeping willow is my favorite tree. It's branches reach down to touch and caress those who are in love with it. Yes...YOU ARE VERY VERY GOOD! ;) Auntie is impressed!

We had a lovely time and he brought me some treats and we got to talk to some poets on campus. I got to show him where the Media Center and studio of Al Waad.
