Samudraa, the woman - :-)

The Arbit Council - Thanks. So are you going for it?

gulnaz, jaded, transience - Thanks but not yet a year. August 19 is the date for that. :-)

heir to a lordly fortune

iamnasra said...

Another August has come
In every year when it cross my path
Making me one year older without my choice

Another August has come
Making me review my past living years
However I’m a soul not merely a child of time
I go beyond, even though my body will decease

Another August has come
I watch my fragile body of earth
Growing older in every passing year
Waiting to bid a farewell
As the day will come to free myself from this earthly weight
My soul will comprehend in a rejoice while those I leave behind cry for my depart
Deep down inside of them they know that I’m around
To them, they ache for I’m not part of their tangible life
by nasra al adawi

Written in inspiration of your poetry…
Thank you for such touching poem that made me write the above thoughts of mine

Billy said...

and august is shining hot in dominica. i won't hide. i won't complain. i want to shine too

Teleute said...

oh my god. you leave me absolutely speechless.

Paul said...

It all works. A really minor comment, and maybe nobody else got this and you didn't intend it:

But on that first picture, with the profile, the shape of the picure and the black strip across the top reminds me of a credit card! Suggestive maybe of taking a trip in August!

finnegan said...

almost just about nearly happy blog birthday---august is the hottest month (north of the equator). you've chosen a good time for skewered words over the fire.

Anne said...

I am so clever! I put a picture on my Blog!

jawaher said...

August: art. :-)

stan laurel said...

This poem is quite a celebration of you. Well done.

Anne, Lorena, venus, Diva Drip, Lancelot'sTake, finnegan, luz de la luna - Thanks.

A Daydreamer, ~*. D E E P A .* ~ - Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

Itineranting - I am not really sure if it was a Japanese man. He was oriental though.

J - I guess I missed it!

iamnasra - Thank you for your beautiful poem and words. Am glad I could evoke these words.

stan laurel - Thanks. These are the phonetics for the word to aid in the right pronunciation.

dawn said...

Hello A
Haven't been around for awhile. I thought since it is August that I would resurface. Yes, yet another August is upon us--that is how we live--carried away by time with names like August. Nice thoughts. Loved the glowing pic. dawn

dawn said...

A: Loved the pics by the way. Is that you in shadows in the first one? dawn

Extempore said...

Oh my... staggeringly lovely work. Mere words, .:a:. are not enough! And am not being kind... merely honest. :)

May I link you?

yvaine said...

with you, august sounds so promising.

. : A : . said...

dawn - Welcome back! It is someone else in the shadows. I took the pic.

Extempore - Thanks! You are more than welcome to link me.

yvaine - :-)
