You are my music
I write lyrics on your heart
The breeze sings sweetly

Together forever
Our song is an endless love
The willow applauds

My Valentine
It's a moonlit night
May I please have this dance?

a single red rose

Smiling, the house

Completely absorbed,

             the young zealot rips his foe

                      limb from bloody limb. . . 

      From his parents’ TV drones

               more talk of terrorism.

in their own worlds - thrilling for the kill. . . can they learn compassion? kids playing games like “Modern Warfare”. . . how can violence stop? A tanka with questionku chasers for Yasmin Khan's Video Games Played Poetry Contest

Drift down from the sky
Who fluffs these downy clouds?

Undying Question

A tin of chocolates
The sun slowly retreating
In beautiful flame

A glance in secret
The firm push of resolution
Butterflies dancing

Girlie smile
The light of welcome
At last --"Will you be mine?"

A Poets Pain

If I do not write
Will you forget I exist?
I’m more than my words

Tears in my Garden

Did I not help you?
Was I not there when you fell?
I’m crying alone….

My secrets are mine
Do I question you of yours?
The heart is silent….

Intentional pain
Do you think I’m made of stone?
Please handle with care….

I love who I am
Why do you want me to change?
My heart is constant…

Unfettered by time
Do you want to live the dream?
Let me take you there…

Eileen Manassian Ghali

One good turn deserves another...or so they say. How easily we forget to repay a kindness. I love the song by Michael Bolton...Lean on Me. 


Ecclesiastes 4:9 - 12

Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

"The third strand being the strongest one...GOD"

Medley of Questionkus

I fall backwards
grasping at the air
will anyone catch me

jumping forward
into empty pool
why didn't I look first

I am foolish
learning the hard way
will it make me wiser

floating through life
somewhat unaware
is ignorance bliss

she smiles at me
my heart skips a beat
do we want the same thing

fantasy girl
woman of my dreams
is she within my reach

moving too fast
removing her clothes
do I want her to stop

elastic band
pulled with all his force
what is he shooting at

a broken vase
laying on the floor
have you seen Bob's sling shot

let me ponder
the things I have done
can I forgive myself

yesterday was
today is what is
what will tomorrow be

A little lie

A 'little lie' never 
stands alone it is 
anchored by many 
great lies

the freedom a little 
lie promises is the 
existance of a 
unicorn-a mystery

The only short way out a 
little lie point is but a 
teenagers fantacy of a 
perfect man-a lie

Why lie?

Answerku 3

Wonder what she will do?
I look in her eyes.
She looks away.

Should I keep it inside?
If I do I'll burst!
I'll take the chance.

Tell me what I should do?
I long for her love.
I will confess.

But what will it cost me?
Price does not matter.
I'll gladly pay!

Crazy truck on road

Crazy truck
The wild truck
This world
On a war

But still on a road
Who is on the wheel?
Where is head?
Where is hope?

Ask any boy
and ask any girl
Did you learn your lesson

They'd take their books
And throw them at you
Would you learn it for me

The Sentinel

On the front line stands a man 
to give last breath

He walks in death’s dark shadow
the sentinel

a keen watchman
fulfills solemn oath
who watches out for him?

Mystery Poet

you're only a flag
a presence without a name
why are you hiding?

a faceless person
voiceless mystery poet
do your eyes see all?

just an enigma
unknown reader of us all
A PS Phantom?
