I named my plant, “Oxima”

I checked to see all the posts I have published and for the record as of today I have already published 1,197 posts to be exact 🙂
But there are several posts which some of you may have missed to read, so I thought it would be nice to revisit them and share them with you…  and this post is one of them.   Enjoy 🙂

When I arrived here in Jeddah, 4 years ago, I bought some indoor plants and placed them in my flat.  I thought that it would be nice to have something fresh with me every day.

But unfortunately I do not have that what they called “green palms”, so that one by one they started to get dry and die.  Plus the weather here is really hot especially during summer season. You bet I always have my air-condition on.  And when I go for my holidays, there is no one who I could ask a favor to water them.  By then of course the room temperature would become too hot.  For sure the plants could be cooked. 🙂

I will be gone usually 3 weeks and sometime a month, so every time I get back from vacation, I would be crazy to water them and do the best I can to save them. But no matter what I do, they continued to wither.  I was disappointed so I just left them, I meant literally just let them to die.  I never watered them anymore.

One day I did a general cleaning in my flat so I’ve got to get rid of those things that are of no longer useful for me.

I was about to dispose the remaining plant left in my flat because most of its leaves were dried, I thought this plant won’t make it too.

But then when I saw a little bud of new leaf growing just beside its limb.  I was amazed!  I said, “Wow! Of all the plants this one made it. In spite of what I did, I don’t know how she did it but the thing was she survived!

This plant inspired me and thought me a lesson.  No matter what the circumstances may be, I should never ever give up, I must move on and passionately pursue my mission.

…And So I fixed it up and then I asked what name it would like to be called.

That night I dreamt of the word “OXIMA” so that’s where I get its name.

Are you familiar with “Lexigram”?  Because I lexigram the word OXIMA and I came up with this words from it:

Oxi/Oxy-root word of oxygen and oxygen is air and we need air to breath, to live, to have a life and become alive.

Ma- we called our mother in short Ma.  Plants are living things  and  so basically they are the natures arounds us, the beauty of the earth materials and the mother earth itself that are within us.

With these 2 words in my mind, I understand why this plant stayed with me.
I made this blog for this special plant named “Oxima” 🙂

Dieffenbachia (Dumb Cane) : one of the many “poisonous houseplants”.

I read this poem from one of my favorite books about Lexigrams.  I thought this would be awesome to share with all of my co-bloggers…  And perhaps you may find it interesting to lexigram a word, a name, a title or phrase too, which is really fun to do. 🙂

words divine, words sublime…  holy, holy words !
a picture is worth ten thousand words
so the Oriental sages say…  and therefore is the higher
nay, nay…  for shame !
for it takes words to tell…  even of that ancient claim
the hidden glory of every story
shines forth in words, words, words !
the miracle of the Easter gladness
overcoming death’s morbid sadness
is told in words, words, words !

words have wings, like birds
to fly through the sky of the mind

…  be ye aS wiSe aS a Serpent
yet aS harmleSS aS a dove…

words…  those mysterious scribbles on a page
holding the wisdom of every age
the experience and teaching of every sage

oh!  the beautiful rhyming of the proper timing
of words !

powerful words, that ring with truth
words that sing, forsooth  !
yes, words that ring and words that sing
words of spring and every good thing…  like kitties…

Artistry In Poetry & Artistry In Pictures

ARTISTRY IN POETRY

VIRTUOSITY

I see things others could not see
But when these things I see are viewed
Everyone would be inspired, they all glee
They see beauty thru the images that I glued

I could have drama in my creation
Or portray humor in my imagination
Different strokes, unique variation
And of my own taste in coloration

Viewers would feel my inner being
I could not hide any of my wondering
Life I have bestowed, I’m now delivering
With all of my art works, they are shining

My mastery, I have you motivated
Your pains or hurts would all be lifted
Even your joys would become unlimited
The brilliance of this work truly are gifted

Come, touch and feel me within
Get inside, explore, roll over and spin
Exploit the world of wonders we live in
Its magic would brush your life to win

Artistry, oh my, oh my, I love thee
You share us your eternal verity
I thank God for this craft everyone see
With Virtuosity I create life its own reality.

AS I SEE YOU

I look on air, in my mind I see your grace
With my color pens and brushes I’ve traced
Every angles that you have grimaced
From where I’ve seen the look of love on thy face

I started to sketch those green eyes
With rich color I’ve chosen green dyes
Like fresh river herein my soul lies
Floating with love that never dies

My brush have shaped your pointed nose
And something inside…you have me arose
Remembering you, Oh you smelling my rose
I feel heaven…with you not even a while I’d doze

As I reach on those charming cheeks
And blended colors unto a picturesque
Oh, they warm me… on it my paint licks
Those rosy cheeks I couldn’t bear resist

To your luscious lips here now I draw
Your smile from pleasure wherein I glow
The grin you give, teasing me below
With your sweet-strong kisses I grow

A grayish brown stencil I’ve lined on your hair
They’re soft and wavy like gold dust on air
I stroke them gently… my hand lay bare
I brush them rich… in my delight I stare

Herein I portrait your image as I see you
This is the best work that I dedicate for you

This art that I sketch in my thoughts’ view
Words of unending love that I’d write and sew

With colorful arts baring true feelings I woo
I’ve mixed, blended my love with magical anew

All of my love of words and arts…are you
Treasure them, they’re from my heart, my own brew…

Poulliy sur Loire River, France… I took this shot, because of its beautiful panorama and refreshing feeling it displayed to me plus the thought that my love Vincou used to swim here during his childhood days… I had no idea that the photo would turn out so lovely and very interesting where the coolness of the blue sky and veils of cloud reflecting on the river added greater extent of its heavenliness scenery.  I was happy afterwards. Now I get myself interested in Photography aside from writing Poetry…

“They are both an enduring work of art!”

Beyond This Garden

A shot I took in the depth of my little knowledge in photography during my vacation in Boisgibault, France
