A Dawn with You

A striking crack of dawn
At the parapet
Removing the murk within
One more day
Neat and beautiful
Brightening further
A different sort of stillness
In the garden
Soothing to my heart
Youth peeping outside
From tiny bud
Vitalizing the vibes
A softening music
Created by butterflies
Fuelling a desire
To relish
These rare moments with you!

Incomplete Love Story

Hearing a distant song of love
So sweet, makes me feel alone
How to reach her, cover the distance apart
Spirit of love dictates, not to lose heart
Come so near to her in my dreams, a sweet fiction
She is no where near when get awake, a sorrowful reality
To reach destination of my love remains an endeavour, a flame of hope burning inside me
Like the Earth can’t meet the Sky, a cosmos devine rule
Imaginations lure me to find my love in the horizon
Where I may hug sweetheart like Sky and horizon meets at far distance
She dwells at the farthest sight where Sun rises with it’s orange golden shinny colours
Where Moon sets with an innocent crescent smile
With joy of dancing flowers in the surroundings with breeze
Sweet scented breeze blows across my soul with lovely message from my love 
Fragrance soothing environment with a pleasant ambiance
To caress her under an umbrella of twinkling stars remains a wishful thinking
Nightingale singing song of approaching distance, where my love lives
Merriments know no bounds, awaiting to celebrate our union to complete my love story

©® Anwar Rahim

Like She’s Saying

I am amazed
Seeing you all
Worried and pale
Hard and sad days
Come and go
Life is full of joy
Have a look at me
I have reasons to tell
Nothing lasts for ever
New day with new rays
Life is a divine gift
Share love and experience
Every age has beauty
Remain ecstatic in life
Be honest to yourself
Do not worry about age
Next day, life is a new page
Take it just a number game
Increase in age adds grace

The Thing Is…

The little things that capture life,snippets of songs, echo all night.Some words can cut just like a knife,yet those same words, can bring delight.

Invented Poetry Forms – The Sepigram

Some of you readers with a good memory may recall a post I did last May discussing the Kindku, an invented poetry form inspired by both traditional Japanese forms (like the haiku and tanka) and Found Poetry. Recently one of that form’s creators, Cendrine Marrouat, contacted me to let me know about a brand new […]

The Monochrome Experience: Point and Shoot

Today I opened the old typewriter. Belongs to another world inside a black wooden box.

*”This page will blow your mind!” ~Maxwanette A Poetess

🌹✒POETRYS – GELDA CASTRO (Brazil)

LIKE A BOUQUET SOUND

That autumn morning

a vibrant melody invaded

the porch lit by the sun

Wow, she exclaimed, delighted…


What an inspiring melody comes

to my ears, as if it were a 

bouquet of musical notes 

warming my soul, delights never seem 


Music is a form of poetry,

An invitation to enchantment,

is a levitation of emotions so

intense feeling, ecstatic


Every note was like a whisper

so as not to wake up the bucolic 

city of almost childish dreams

where fascination enchants


The magic is remade 

in the glow of the eye, 

in the sweetness of words,

on kisses that lips sip

SHORTCUT  TO  PEACE


Spread your wings over us,

O Liberty!

May our right of expression

be resoected and our claims accepted


Spread your wings over us,

O Liberty!

May the Power established from

systems not rob us the perception

between good and evil


Freedom, however late, will always bê

better than darkness of intolerância

that oppresses stealing our dreams

Concious freedom is a shortcut to Peace!

BRUME MIND


Blind as the torpor of Brume

Which silently invades the dawn

So you were, without seeing my love

Awesome as the mist I was by your side

But you did not see me,

With a clouded mind you stayed

Your interests were different from mine,

Your dreams have crossed other routes,

Your goals have lost their meaning,

Because without seeing where you were

We get lost in each other at the fork 

That haze your feelings and senses

🌹✒POETRYS – Shahid Abbas & Elizabeth Esguerra Castillo(Pakistan & Philippines)✒🌹

Elizabeth Esguerra Castillo
Shahid Abbas

“True Courage”

Elizabeth:

What does it take to have true courage?
In a world where there seems to be fear everywhere
A brave heart emerges from the ruins,
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Shahid:

Let’s start
From inside the core of our hearts,
We are brave
We will change the world
Not just with words spoken but coupled with actions.

Elizabeth:

Restless hearts afraid of taking risks,
But real courage knocks at your door
When determination resurfaces
To climb even the tallest mountain peak.

Shahid:

We should listen
To the voice of the innocent
With courage
Don’t blame
Don’t claim
Make a stand, say your stand.

Elizabeth:

Making a stand for what is right
Is the catalyst for change
The courageous stands tall,
Not even the biggest fear can trample.

Shahid:

True courage exists inside a brave man’s heart,
Hearts can change the universe
Awake! Get up…
And let real courage be your soul’s part.

Elizabeth:

The wandering spirit
Roaming the world leaving footprints of triumph
Let no man walk alone,
Saying “Be courageous my child.”

Shahid:

Yay! Loneliness is bad
As the wise people of before said
Don’t be sad….
Do your best efforts and make history
That the brave can change his fate.

Who Is SEB?…SEB is the abbreviation for Society for Economic Botany. 

About The Society for Economic Botany

The Society for Economic Botany (SEB) is about people exploring the uses of, and our relationship with plants, cultures and our environment—plants and human affairs. our environment—plants and human affairs. You might well call our research and educational efforts, the science of survival.

We were established in 1959 and our mission is to foster and encourage scientific research, education, and related activities on the past, present, and future uses of plants, and the relationship between plants and people, and to make the results of such research available to the scientific community and the general public through meetings and publications.

Membership in SEB is open to all individuals interested in economic botany and in the promotion of research in this field.

With members from across the 50 U.S. states and more than 64 countries around the globe, SEB serves as the world’s largest and most-respected professional society for individuals who are concerned with basic botanical, phytochemical and ethnological studies of plants known to be useful or those which may have potential uses so far undeveloped. It is recognized that the field of economic botany includes all or parts of many established disciplines such as: agronomy, anthropology, archaeology, chemistry, economics, ethnobotany, ethnology, forestry, genetic resources, geography, geology, horticulture, medicine, microbiology, nutrition, pharmacognosy, and pharmacology, in addition to the established botanical disciplines.

ECONOMIC BOTANY IS ABOUT PLANTS AND HUMAN AFFAIRS

In a 1958 essay at the conference which was to found the Society for Economic Botany, David J. Rogers wrote, “A current viewpoint is that economic botany should concern itself with basic botanical, phytochemical and ethnological studies of plants known to be useful or those which may have potential uses so far underdeveloped. Economic botany is, then, a composite of those sciences working specifically with plants of importance to [people].” Closely allied with economic botany is ethnobotany, a growing field which emphasizes plants in context of the anthropological sciences. Some would say that science is what scientists do, perhaps the best defintion of economic botany is found in the work presented in our journal and at annual meetings of the Society.

Our publication, ECONOMIC BOTANY, was founded in 1947 by Edmund H. Fulling at the New York Botanical Garden. William J. Robbins, then Director of the Garden, wrote in the first issue that this new botanical magazine would “;….serve as a common meeting place for botanists interested primarily in fundamental principles and others who are concerned with economic applications of those principles and with the industrial utlization of plants and plant products.”

ECONOMIC BOTANY, is a quarterly international journal devoted to the publication of original research, review papers, historical studies, and book reviews. Recent issues have included such topics as ethnobotanical and phytochemical studies, research on origin and evolution of crop plants, the ecology and history of traditional food plants, and studies on arid land plants with potential for local development. https://www.econbot.org/home/about/about-seb.html


Who Is ISE?…ISE is an abbreviation for the International Society of Ethnobiology. The International Society of Ethnobiology (ISE) is a global, collaborative network of individuals and organizations working to preserve vital links between human societies and the natural world.

Ethnobiologists recognize that indigenous peoples, traditional societies, and local communities are critical to the conservation of biological, cultural and linguistic diversity.

Central to our mission is creating a space for dialogue, cooperation, and action across diverse languages, cultures, and worldviews. The ISE strives to channel this work into sound research methods, policies, resource use, and decision-making.

The vision of the ISE is reflected in its Code of Ethics, to which all Members are bound. https://www.ethnobiology.net/
