An Ode to my eyes and some food for thought.

Okay so I’have been up to my neck in work and really can’t think properly much less type a meaningful post so I dug up something for those who have been asking for an update.

This was a poem I sent in during the Ode Carnival at Daddy’s girl’s blog sometime ago. It’s titled ‘An Ode to my eyes” My entry didn’t win. Our sweet and sultry Castle queen's Ode to her bosom won the competition anyway since I never posted the Ode on my blog, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so. So here it goes…




They charm...
They disarm...
They are a window to my soul...
Shining with a lustre when i am glad...
Dull and sober when i am sad...
They are beautiful...more so when lined with dark kohl...
They can be as trusting as a puppy's...
Cold as a dead iced fish's...
They are innocently sexy...
capable of arousing to distraction...
Discerning, penetrating...
they can tell when you are faking
Brown and white...
Sharp and bright...
They are my eyes.


What do you think of my Ode? ;)
Then I also got this in my mail this morning and thought I should put it up. Please read and give great thought to each statement. I did and they really make a lot of sense.

1. Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.'
2. A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.

3. If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn't oversleep.

4. Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.

5. The best vitamin for making friends..... B1.

6. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.

7. The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge.

8. One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

9. You lie the loudest when you lie to me.

10. If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished.

11. One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.

12. Ideas won't work unless 'you' do.

13. Your mind is like a parachute...it functions only when open.

14. The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.

15. The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what
you might have been.

16. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right and forget
about the one's who don't.

17. Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes
we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've
let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we
forget what's right and wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means
until it is too late.

P.S: How do i do the blogroll thing so i can get notification when anyone on my roll updates their blog? Everyone's got it already except me. Help!
*DISCLAIMER: That is not my eye above o, although i can swear mine are lots lovelier(wink)

Jaycee said...

Ur ode was beautiful...

"Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."...this is very true...

"One thing you can't recycle is wasted time..." Time is sooo precious, and we can never get back the times we've wasted.

"Friends are like balloons." I'm really trying hard not to let go of precious people. I'm bad at returning calls, but I still know those who have made a difference in my life.

OluwaDee said...

I am very sure your eyes r a lot lovelier.

"The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts."
- there is joy in my soul.

The poem is good n easy 2 decode. But I must say, am an ode 2 poems.

Free-flowing Florida said...

i love everything abt this post. d eyes, d ode, d list of advise esp 'a sharp tongue can cut your own throat'.

2 put up dat blogroll, follow these step

1. go to 'customizer'. that's on the top of ur blog, where u also sign out (i know u know already, just making sure. lol)

2. at 'layout', click on 'add a page element'. u can chose d position u want 2 place this blogroll

3. at 'add a page element', chose d option 'Blog List New! - add to blog'

4. i don't know every other person did theirs, but at this point i had to manually add every single blog i was interested in. their blog address, what i wanted to tag them as, etc. u can decide if u want them to be displayed alphabetically or reverse alphabetically, or d latest post etc

anyways, u'd find out when u get to dat stage. any confusion, hola moi

*kisses*

Afrobabe said...

lol...and what body part would that be???

cos the body part I am interested in is not one I have.....

Writefreak said...

Nice ode! I specially like the part about not sleeping too much if you want your dreams to come true..
Have you been able to fix the blogroll thingy? I did mine from my settings page...

Queen of My Castle said...

Awwww, I loved your disclaimer. Too cute! I loved the ode equally as much.

LOL @ Naapali!!!! Oddly enough my bosom was posted on my blog just a few days ago.

anonymous gal said...

so ur eyes are finer than that? u must have fyne eyes...abeg comot make we hear word.

Naapali said...

@ QOMC: I am off to verify!

Naapali said...

@ Princesa and QOMC
- I will have to declare a tie (or draw).
- the way I see it looking into Princesa's eyes for too long will mesmerize even the hardest person
- staring at QOMC's twins will harden even the softest person

So a tie is declared.

the genius within said...

nicely written..and i liked the mail thingy too...tk cre dear

rethots said...

...beautiful, the eye(s) also talk when the mouth chooses not to.

17. ...of all the treasures which in time may come our way (said someone), there will be none as precious as our friends.
