penance !

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

When I call you a cherry, a merry strawberry
I used to feel your breath to ease my worry
to end the tuft of loneliness of years, I carry
here, today I consent, for I am now too weary

to fight a lone battle so silly, over a mere response
a sure defeat, hurt, unarmed, for nothing I suppose

here is my harmless way, my only way... my penance
dear !...I freeze my soul, my feelings too with patience
a quartz I am from now on, to keep a stony silence

Hey jac,

I loved eating these cherries, but i didnt know they were cherries since they were not sweet. Could you tell me if this has another name? [Malayalam or English] Want to get one planted in my house. :)

now i am this happy or sad??
patience is good, but then why freeze emotions and achieve stony silence
however, everything rhymed so perfectly :)

I am trying to learm patience, not an easy task to come in to terms with. need to borrow some from me ? which is the biggest joke of the year.

Jac said...

I wish if that was freely available for sale like cosmetics.
I am trying to muster it and it needs more patience.

Jac said...

Thanks, whatever. :)

Jac said...

You have a kind soul.

Hi Jac
this is really nice.I really enjoyed.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

The pic you see is of wild cherry, which is sour and bitter while half ripe, sweet and slightly bitter when it is ripe.

Unlike the normal sweet cherry, this one needs processing before it is directly edible.

I don't know the name for it in your country but I know that it is very common and they pickle it while it is half ripe.

But I can get you the information you seek.

It is not so bitter when half ripe, but it still have the trace of bitterness in the ripe fruit too.
