Fragments of you

Her perfume scent lingers

triggering lives with shots of translucent recurring images and flickering pages, 

permanently installed unto memories and times

that unfurl bringing

to us unaltered,

visions of her fragments

left behind…….

Rivers That Flow

Hands anastomose, 
bifurcating the rivers that flow.

Soul Meiosis II

Kisses of symbiosis fuse, merge
by luminous conjugation
of the unproven soul meiosis ............

Soul Meiosis

I kiss your lips
I taste your soul
I feel the real you inside my soul
our spirits remix
you paint my lips with your taste, your breath, your feel, your soul
your essence of existence now I feel and know
we instill to be still,
we combine our fates, unite
your thoughts cross-hatches mine
we twist, we turn closing our eyes to complete our need
we Intertwine, we tangle, we whine
our body, soul and spirit stabilizes as one
our souls intensify, fly
inscribed with love, we carve peace
we prepare our wishes to bliss, to pieces
as our feelings and emotions float with pride
the need to fill and be filled has been met indeed
our emotions glowing wild
our temperatures rise, surging high
our hearts pump thumping swift
our bodies melt conforming in rhythm
beating in synchrony to our feelings
the touch, the feelings, conforms, reforms, reshapes with a quick pace
our skins peel for healing, as ownership is achieved
we sink into each others soul and arms hugging
the unproven soul meiosis occur surging
we combine our souls evolving 
as we descend with kisses of symbiosis .................

Factors affecting intelligence - Part 2

6.  Incompleteness of the education curricula/ In-availability of areas-subjects-courses
that will enable others possessing other intelligences discover themselves-excel.

Other factors affecting intelligence are:

Language comprehension and expressiveness, Self reasoning and ability to generate
solutions, Sense of timing-Rhythmic accuracy (psychologically and physically) and Abstract comprehension and representation etc.


Interest does not necessarily drive recepto-recreativity, it may drive it to an extent, recepto-recreativity is more accustomed to novelty and does not rely totally on interest and understanding to retain and retrieve information. It does not need orderly links-logical processing to form a meaning, instead it creates its own method of storing, retrieving and linking to form information, remember and make personal meaning. It is a branch of receptivity crowned with the ability to remember by giving-ascribing personal meaning to things. The person forms his/her own links to make personal meaning but it might not make a realistic meaning to another person. It is a technique that enables-aids the individual in remembering, not everyone has the ability to do this simultaneously with other things (multi-tasking, retaining information/sequences of steps/information, ascribing personal meaning to information or steps/sequences of information/processes/procedures, remembering virtually all the sequences/steps/procedures and information and recreating virtually all the steps and information).

Recepto-recreativity is a personal term the author ascribes to individual technique/s of denoting information. All the factors listed are not taken from any source but are merely the author's thoughts, observations and somewhat conclusions.

Abstract Night or Concrete Dream

Silent saxophones sing the reverberating echoes, the songs of the night as chirping crickets conduct

Violin strings drip flavor into each moment with melodies like embroideries of serenades

Cream painted roses lie lusciously on helpless guitars scenting the sound of earth’s praise like would the balm of Gilead on her skin

Speaking to her the languages of sanity, eternity’s cadence as the flute whispers the culture of angels

The romantic noises of trumpets sensual resound at the site of wingless butterflies on deciduous trees as water lilies are teased by bracken ferns

Conifers whisper the tales of organisms in various ecological niches

As osmosis dances across semi-permeable membranes balancing the division of symbiosis while diffusion spreads the news via ~ between harp’s hips

While enabling the stealth of each chord’s intensity to penetrate with dramatic fragility,

Dissolving ~ melting ~ stripping the exotic essences of resonant reasoning 

Leaving her to ponder among realities, fairy tales, abstract nights and concrete dreams?

Barely standing on sinking sand

Although she longed, prayed and hoped he wasn’t away

she still couldn’t stand the thought of him being no more

only having known each other for a few weeks

when love at first sight kicked in

they walked together holding hands like inseparable love birds,

talked about anything from life, to love,

and how they would never leave nor forget each other,

moved together in synchrony

and tried so many treats

and almost everything

from piggybacks to mouthy caresses

The rumors of his untimely demise sent her shriveling

from a beautiful rose to a wilting, wrinkled lily

she was eventually lost to the unbearable memories

of her prince charming’s death

Shortly after her passing away,

her prince's survival resurfaced

drowning the  untrue rumors

when asked about her

all he could remember

were the images of a damsel

built on nothing else

The journey of a life time is fueled by the purpose in a dream.

My Dear Lady

In times like these
watching the tales of the night unfurl
while the stars are alight, 
bright in their glory
I remember you 
and the hurdles that lay before us

I plead with space seeking for reason why time will never suffice
I contemplate what to do with infinity as she strides further
I thank eternity for her patience

We resume our favorite room-continuum                  
and leave the rest of our history to eternity and infinity 
to compose, debate and solve our conundrum

Remember your aspirations as I ponder mine
You know that I will always keep you in my prayers
We need not give up                                                            
For we are just a footstool away from realizing our dreams

I will preserve you in my memory 
Hoping that time will show mercy 
and grace will protect me 

This I promise you 
I will remember you till the day that I last
My Dear Lady.
