The People and Places of my World-FB LINK of Picture Poetry

Come and see paradise
Feast on it with your eyes

See Jacaranda trees
Ruffled by a soft breeze

See beauty in the faces
That live in my heart’s spaces

Come and visit with me
I want you my world to see

Our friendship has reached that place
Where I want you to see my face

I want to be known by you
Come see my life’s special hue

You’re more than a cyber-friend
You’re a treasure heaven send.

Come and see….
Come and see!

Eileen Manassian Ghali

I know that some of you made comments about the jacaranda trees that I mentioned in my Limerick, Meeting Guru Jad at Three. Others don’t have a clear concept of what Lebanon is like or what the Middle East has to offer. Remember, Lebanon is mentioned in the Bible: Psalm 92: 12- The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon. Here is a link to an FB album I created for my Poetry Soup friends. The setting is for public, so all of you should be able to view it. There are a LOT of pictures. The first ones are about the campus and the jacaranda trees some of you asked about and of Lebanon in general. Then the rest are a glimpse into my life…family and hobbies. I know only the HARD CORE fans will go through it all, but it is a gift to you. Enjoy. Love you all! <3 

PS….There is a picture of one of my students who has recently joined the Soup. Her name is Eve, but she goes by Vivo Sadek. PD has already commented on her work. You might like to SEE her! Hope you visit her work! Hugs to you all.

    Thanks for the glimpse into your life. At times we tend to forget there's a real person behind behind the poet. Your "gypsy" daughter is stunning. Lovely pics, Eileen. :)

    Yes, we do. Thanks for taking the time to go through the pics. Yes, Shereen is stunning, but of course I'm biased. Thanks for saying that. Nothing makes a Mama happier! Hugs!

    You know me and technology Auntie, I'll have to ask a girl for some help but I'll give it a go. Thank you for going to the trouble.

    You better, my dear.....and then get back with glowing words of praise! :) Yes, it did take me lots of time to compile that, and I had much more to add, but I had to be choosy.

    Thanks for sharing all the wonderful pictures. What a beautiful family you have! I must not know much about Lebanon for I had no idea it was so green in some areas. If I shared pictures of Idaho, the "city parts" wouldn't be much to look at. But we do have wonderful mountains and rivers...

    Oh Tim....you are one of the people I really wanted to see this. I didn't even get to share the really beautiful bits like the cedars and the mountain villages. Too many photos. Glad you enjoyed it. I don't think many will go through the whole thing, but I'm glad you liked it! :)
