Ma Salama (Good bye)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Over the mountain mist, I saw, their fleet
flapping their wings apart, I saw, their flight

studding the sky so blue, I saw they flew
the birds with feathers supple & soft, they glide

I stood laughing in awe, a statue but more than alive
to see this beauty, you know, I needn’t pay, a duty

my poems sad, but see, my cheeks rosy in smile
this is for you, who said before, my poems are sad

Moods are as temporary as the wind that blows and stays not.

Who says your poems are sad?

What a nice shining smile.. do keep smiling today and tomorrow and always:)

Jac said...


I am now better, thanks !
My vacation is on.

I see that you are also taking a break probably a vacation. Let me know what is happening during the vacation.

You like that song ? You should.

Jac said...

Yes, I am better now. The temporary mood downwords has stabilized...the wind getting normalised.

Oh come on, I know that some of my poems are sad, but I have already stated that the blog reflects my moods too...or else you may never know what my soul is.

Thank you for the compliments and I will do my best to keep that smile.
Take care you too.
Thanks again for the concern until I am back with more for you.

Jac said...


Thank you, andrew.

Jac said...

Oh no, I have to, keshi.

My plesure to say thank you, seema.

Hi Jac,
i'm in kerala - and i think i'm being fed so much that i'm always sleeping :))
but i have one or two stories i plan to post here. Soon. :)

this is a beautiful song - can you tell me which one? It's a woman singing 'goodbye, mother' (just in case you change the song)

Jac said...


You are addicted to me ???
Is that what you tell every one ?

Just another 3 weeks more and I will be with the meantime let me read something in your blog. It is hightime that you write a nice poem.
Won't you ?

Jac said...

I think that the world is spinning away from them.

You have a very valid point there. Thanks for the visit and comment.

Jac said...

Sure... after 28 days. Thanks.

Rose said...

Everyone? Whom do you mean by "everyone"?? ;D

And abt the poem.. Hmmmmm... What do I write abt??

Hey! Wher r u vacationing this time?


Margie said...

Enjoy your vacation jac!
Beautiful poem and picture!
Take care, enjoy each and every moment!


Jac said...

M&C @ ann

I am so glad that you are here to read every post of mine anjali.

Thank you so much.

Jac said...


Thank you so much for being here to read my lines.

Jac said...


That was a lot of flattery about my posts.
I am not a poet or a good photographer. It is just my simple expressions, as I don't intend to hide my moods.

Thank you so much, janice.

Jac said...

Sure... in 28 days.

Thanks and take care of your tummy.

Jac said...

That was a flock of migratory Geese.

Southern Sudan is one of their favorite stop over in Africa.

Jac said...


Thank you for the visit and carry on with your new music lessions.

Will see you in 28 days.
Take care of yourself...I know that you are smiling now.

Jac said...


I now regret that I was not able to grasp your wonderful language though I once had the opportunity.

Thank you my friend, and have a nice week end too

Jac said...


Thank you dear. I remember you now from your comments in my previous posts.

You were misssing for some time. Thank you for remembering me and coming back.

Will visit you after the vacation.

Jac said...


Thank you Cousin.

You are my cousin and my charming guest too.

Jac said...

kai c

Thank you Princess.

Jac said...

Welcome back here during your vacation in kerala as you call it as an eating holiday. LOL

Thank you for finding time to visit me.

The song is by Celine Dion singing "Good bye is the saddest word"

Jac said...


Don't get get nasty at me for that word 'everyone', kalayaneeeee !

Write about anything you feel and let people read it. Let your talent be in black and white.

The venue of my vacation is top secret because I am a very very VIP, you know? LOL

Thanks for the second time.

Jac said...


Thank you margie!
Missed you here

Seeya in 28 days

Jac said...

Came back to say that you write for your 'kalla punialan'

22 of April, day of the land. Who does not respect it, does not respect the humanity.

22 d'avril, jour de la terre. Qui ne la respecte pas, ne respecte pas l'humanité.
22 نيسان يوم الارض. فمن لا يحترم ومن لا يحترم الانسانيه.
22 von April, Tag des Landes. Wer es nicht respektiert, respektiert nicht die Menschlichkeit
22日,一天的土地. 谁不尊重,不尊重人性. 4月の22、土地の日。
4月の22、土地の日。 それを尊重しないかだれが、人間性を尊重しない。
22 апреля - День земли. Кто не уважает его, не уважать человечество.
22 de Abril, dia da terra, quem não a respeita, não respeita a humanidade
22 της ημέραης Απριλίου, του εδάφους, που δεν το σέβονται, δεν σέβονται το Ανθρωπότητα

Sapna Anu B. George said...

Allow me to weep,cry and laugh

with footsteps so typical,
