The Sky

Clouds covering the Sky
Like random cotton candy
Fluffy and mighty

Good bye Hometown

Good bye family and friends. Good bye carefreeness of childhood. Good bye to the scent of the sea, the gossiping of the waves, the tenderness of the sand and the danger of the jellyfish. Good bye chai, with the beige look, with the taste of spices and the conversation that you induce. Good bye mountains, standing tall, looking on our shoulders obstructing development. Good bye fertile land, with the water canals and the lemon smell and nourishment that you provide to the people of the land. Good Bye hometown.
The mountains cause rain that creates a lake that create trees.

Marshmallow Challange

During the time in the creative writing class we were separated into teams where we had to build the highest structure using just 20 spaghetti sticks and a yard of tape and a yard of a string. We had only 18 minutes to make the structure. Two of the four teams failed, and my team was not successful. My team consisted of myself, Mohammad and Sultan.
          The purpose of the exercise was to see how will we react and build the structure. Personally I think that this exercise was also meant to stimulate our minds into thinking on how to achieve any objects. The thing that surprised me that most was how brittle the spaghetti stick was. I learned that I am not very patient when working with my teammates.
           I think that the marshmellow test can somehow relate the way we try to reach our goals in life and how to support it. Only those with a clear vision can make a structure just like in life only those who dream can make it. This experiacne can help me to plaqn my life and I shall use it in the workplace

my travel

           I remember the day I was smoking inside the Pacific Ocean. I met a person who had six legs. This person was barbequing tomato, talked about his loud drum. We met at a toy store, while I was chilling. The toys smelled like cows drinking blood, the toys were big and square shaped and, was carrying a bowl of soup. We talked about oil prices. When I left the person throw me a mummy.
           Later when I dissected the mummy I found a key to a house. When I visited the house I saw a dog sun bathing and a mouse chasing a giraffe. The giraffe was screaming loudly in Swahili. I also saw a place made of fish and chocolate. I tasted it, and it tasted like fish and chocolate. I invited my friends to this house and showed them the mummy. I asked them to put whatever they have inside their pocket into the mummy, I stitched back the mummy. And put in my car. I took it to the zoo to scare the people. When everybody ran away from the zoo, I took a picture of the animals and sold them in eBay. With the money I bought a yacht, GPS system. Diesel tanker and a lot of canned food.
            Few days later, I stacked the food and the diesel into my yacht; I put the GPS system in the yacht too. I was planning for the trip where I will visit the entire the world. The trip will take a life time.

Day in the open

Today's class activity was to go out into the open and to make an observation on the surroundings. Each person had to find a place where he or she can make write what he observed.
         Where I was sitting I saw a tree with young leaves. This is a mark that we are in spring. I also noticed the grass with some patches of dirt. Cars parked was the background. And the background of the parked cars was moving cars in the high way. I also observed two servicemen walking and chatting about daily fusses. To conclude what I have observed, I have to say that I saw wasps circumnavigating which distracted me and so I moved.
         I heard the sound of the cars moving down the highway. And the buzz made by the wasps and a bird probably chatting to it bird friend.
         I smelled the grass and pollution from the highway.
         I felt the rough wood that the chair on which I was sitting made me feel as I touched it.
         As I was sitting I had few questions, one of those question was what gives grass it smell.the other was why was the sky so clear. And the last question was what are the ranks of the soldier.

Mourning is the burning of the ribs
Dressed as a very well done Steak
Eating away the heart in ache

3 line poems

tolerance is a lamp in cave
wearing a shiny armour
melting down ice

poverty is a skinny child in heaven
dressed as an angel
thirsty of dignity
