Day 29 NaPoWriMo “Try writing poems that contain at least five words in other languages.” I chose Italian, although I don’t know it at all.  I started with a painting my son Dave created, his art can be seen at  www.amazedcreations.com

 

  “I love you more than a heart.”

my granddaughter said to my son.

It touched him so much he painted it.

My poetic tribute is now also done.

 more than a heart

 MORE THAN A HEART

 

Ti amo più di un cuore, in Italian

means “I love you more than a heart”.

That phrase coined by my granddaughter,

is a memory that will never depart.

 

Ti voglio molto bene, Maya,

I love you very much.

You are very creative

and have a gifted artistic touch.

 

You are mio prezioso ragazza,

which translates to my precious girl.

I’m grateful to live close enough

that I see your new skills unfurl.

 

Buon decimo compleanno.

Happy tenth birthday to you.

Remember to always be happy

in all you choose to do.

 

I’m blessed to be your Granny,

Sono felice di essere tua nonna.

WHAT YOU THINK – poem by Jean Kay

Day 27 of NaPoWriMo “I challenge you to think of a common proverb or phrase — something like “All that glitters is not gold,” then plug the first three words of the phrase into a search engine. Skim through the first few pages of results, collecting (rather like a poetic magpie) words and phrases that interest you. Then use those words and phrases as the inspirations (and some of the source material) for a new poem. Happy writing!” Here is mine.

 WHAT YOU THINK

 “What you think of me is none of my business”

is Terry Cole-Whittaker’s book title,

one I have often shared with those

who believed what you (others) think is vital.

 

Forget what you think you know about them,

it’s what you think about you that matters.

You are what you think so mind what you think

don’t let what you think be mindless chatters.

 

“Happiness is when what you think,

what you say, and what you do

are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi said.

Let what you think create happiness in you.

 

I write to find out what I’m thinking about.

Do you write to find out what you think?

What you think may differ from my beliefs,

so I’m interested in what you think.

 

Sometimes I think a word that you use

doesn’t mean what you think you say.

Mind what you think is accurate

in all uttered words you portray.

 

I wonder what you think about me now, but

“What you think of me is none of my business”.
