THE SIMPLEST THINGS - by Lauren Eise Combs


by  Lauren Eise Combs

It's the simplest things
That make life worthwhile,
Sunlight on water
A baby's smile.

A robin's bright song
At the start of the day,
The sweet, clean aroma
Of freshly mown hay.

A breeze in the tree tops
That whispers and sighs,
Cold, brilliant starlight
In dark winter skies.

Crisp apple cider
On an October morn,
A mourning dove's call
Sad and forlorn.

Rain gently falling
On dry thirsty land,
A friend who will listen
And then understand.

A soft sandy beach
Stretching mile after mile,
It's the simplest things
That make life worthwhile.

WHEN I'M WITH YOU - by Chris Engle



by Chris Engle

When I'm with you,
eternity is a step away,
my love continues to grow,
with each passing day.

This treasure of love,
I cherish within my soul,
how much I love you...
you'll never really know.

You bring a joy to my heart,
I've never felt before,
with each touch of your hand,
I love you more and more.

Whenever we say goodbye,
whenever we part,
know I hold you dearly,
deep inside my heart.

So these seven words,
I pray you hold true,
"Forever And Always,
I Will Love You."

A LAKE - by Tian Yuan - Japan


by  Tian Yuan - Japan

If we don’t think it surface stagnation
ripples will form gently on the lake
and also wind will blow through the jungle and set water grasses 
undulating on the lake bottom.
If we don’t think it a trap
the mountain’s image will rise up from within the lake
and tree leaves in the water will turn greener and greener.

If we don’t presume it cruel
the drowned child will surface.
The spread net will not fail.
If we don’t presume it thick ice
the dream of skating on it will be frustrated, rolling along 
will be impossible
and the long beaks of the herons 
will be unable to break up the buildings’ reflections.

If we don’t regard it as a copper mirror
a lot of rubbish on the moon - however much - will be cleaned up
and the sunken ships on the lake bottom will become fishes’ tents.
If we don’t regard it as a blind pupil
it will become a bright eye even on the darkest night
and a face, no matter how ugly, will be clearly reflected.

A lake is but an expanse of water.
Why do we attribute to it
so many “what-ifs” ?


In many countries there are long traditions of creating
tapestries and embroidered paintings, but Arun Kumar (Arun Kumar Bajaj) from India became the first person to create embroidery on an ordinary sewing machine.

I just can not believe that they are made in this way.
The level of detail is so high that they have embroidered
similar to hyper-realistic paintings.

“I have been writing on a typewriter for 23 years, 
from 12 years old,” told Indian artist to
journalists . - My father is a tailor died early, so 
I had to leave school to do his work.
But I was able to combine these two arts. ”

Arun Kumar, popularly known as the “needle man”, wants to
the whole world recognized him and his work. 
Dreams of getting into the  Guinness Book of Records
 and its unique paintings make India a proud nation.

“There is no room for error in my work: if the seam falls on the fabric, it can no longer be removed. I usually do not do embroidery in several layers, so it looks neater. "

One of the most impressive works of Needle Man was
impressive embroidered canvas depicting Krishna.

To create this work the size of 183 by 122 cm from the artist
It took 3 years and about 2840 kilometers of lines.

Well, someone is glorified with brushes and paints,
and Arun Kumar creates masterpieces with the help of a sewing machine. Now, thanks to his unique technique, he gradually
gaining fame throughout the world.

Incomprehensible mastery!
You can watch for hours ...

Arun Kumar continues to be engaged in sewing business at the Adalat bazaar in the city of Patiala in northern India, but also
devotes a lot of time to art.

The work of an unusual artist, as well as small videos,
can be seen on his Facebook page .
By the way, Arun Kumar takes orders, so for a modest fee
You can get a unique work on your photo.

THERE IS A SONG IN MY HEART - by Ravi Sathasivam


by  Ravi Sathasivam

There is a song in my heart
and I want to sing it for you in the misty night
No one will ever knows what I have written for you
because it has been written with my heart only for you
Let us be alone when I sing my song for you
and let the melody of my song echo in the sky
I want our world to sleep deep when I sing for you
then only my song will get into your heart softly
My nights are not enough to love you
nor my songs cannot be sung without you
I sing with my heart to tell you how much I love you
I sing with my soul to tell you how much I miss you
My song will wipe your tears away
and immerse my body into your arms for thirsting love
These feelings of loving song comes when I am only with you
and let my love song, sing in your living heart forever 

YOUR DAY IS SOMEDAY - by Taralyn Southam


by  Taralyn Southam

Simple gifts of joy
Are life's special memories
So many forgotten daily treasures
Is like someone who won't read a book
The cover is opened and closed without thought
As you see every blue sky
And cloudless day,
Warm rain, on a sunny summer day
You walk by as you self-consciously stray
And so many joyful memories are forgotten
Just like that they go rotten
And as the hours go by
And life goes on
So many wonders to see
And you just run by carefree
As you listen to life's chime
You stand aside waiting for your time
But your time is when you realize
Just what you forgot
And how you walked into a big ole knot
And that as you stand aside
Your future flies by
Like it will not see you 
And then you hate how it took so long for you to see
That life's joy was every rotten memory
