HI EVERYONE;
how many of u know about me??I think none!!
well i love to write poems and those who r good at writing poems can include their's out here........
i hope i'll find many out here on JAVARANCH!!
and do comment on my poem!!
<---------MY LIFEBOAT-------->
God made the sky azure and the oceans galore,
And sailed my lifeboat into the placid ocean
God being the rower,showed me the way,
I gathered my dreams and collected the twigs
To build a nest for me and my kins,
But when the storm came,he showed me the way
Disinciling to row the boat he left me in doldrums alone!!
My dreams shattered,twigs scattered,
I knew not where to go,
God announced his final discretion,
I was destined to fly in the sky,
The storm abated,waves degraded,
But the lifeboats were nowhere to be seen!!
.................................
No itzzzz not the complete poem,because it is not meant to be used by someone as itzzz my copyright!!Although i don't mind sharing my poems with good friends!!

Nice poem Ankush!
I have a poem written maybe 15 years ago. It is short and when I find it I may just post it here. I also make jewelry and do mosaic work. Two of the mosaic works can be viewed at http://members.home.net/byrnesiam/html/edart.html. I also garden and grow bonsai and bamboo. But it is colder than hell here in Michigan right now and it will be for two or three more months before I can garden outside. However! I have a 600 watt high pressure sodium grow light and have started tomato plants, hot peppers, and cucumbers in my basement. And so it goes...

No problem on doing all the walls in everyone's apartment!
I found the poem. Here goes.
Where Are We Now?
Fun's faded, something's come
Between our lips.
We aren't nice anymore.
We don't remember us,
With the kids growing
Like weeds in the cracks
Of the sidewalks.
We used to play cards,
And work on our projects.
Now we are too busy to listen,
Turning into touch-me-nots
And fighters and yellers
And haters and face makers
And wishers for time alone.

I wrote some poetry once...after my heart got broken when I was in high school. Since I had nosy brothers, I stashed my poems inside a "secret compartment" in my bedside lamp. Somewhere along the line, after I went off to college, the lamp wound up in a garage sale--poems and all. I've always wondered if whoever bought that lamp ever found the poems.

come on letzzzz go forward with this!!
so here's my second poem!!
"OF CLOUDLESS CHIMES AND STARRY NIGHTS"
-------------------------------------

It's only a paper moon,
Sailing over a cardboard sea,
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me!!
It's only a flowering sun,
Glowing among the cotton clouds,
Most forget,but either way,
That's what comes in one's dreams!!
It's only a shining star,
Glowing among the river of dreams,
Beneath dark skies,through thunder clouds,
fills my life with sweetness and smiles!!
I hope u people like it!!I have many such poems with me and i keep on making new one's at times!!I'll keep on posting my poems!!Do post in u'r interests too if u don't mind sharing it with me and people out here!!

I'd have posted one of my poems, but they're lost with the lamp.
Guess I'll just have to go get my heart broken again and see if I'm inspired as I was before.
Until then, I look forward to enjoying more of your poetry, Ed and Ankush, as well as those of anyone else who may contribute.

Very cool tile mosaics, Ed! Was that in your house or was it a paid gig?

David, the mosaic panel was sold (so paid for), it was made for an outdoor location like a garden wall or wooden fence, the fish mosaic work is in our bathroom (my wife loves it ). I've completed three more garden panels and as soon as I process the pictures, I'll put them on the web. Another nice poem Ankush!
Hey, we ought to write a Java Haiku poem generator. It could be a lot of fun. Elizabeth, you could remember your broken heart and rewrite your lost poems.

All right Ed...this is what you get for bringing up haiku:
Pain cuts through my heart
Lies and broken promises
Learn to trust again
How's that for a nice cheery pre-Valentine's Day haiku?

hi everyone;
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

so here's one for my will be valentine.............
"SECOND IN MY WORLD"
-------------------
WHY IT'S AFTER ME?,WHY IT CARES?,
TRIES TO SHARE,
TO MAKE PEACE & LOVE IN MY MIND,
ULTIMATELY SOMETHING VERY RARE!!
I CALL UPON IT TO LEAVE ME ALONE,
WITH MY THOUGHTS,
WITH MY LOVE,
JUST LET INNOCENCE PAINT MY HEART!!
THERE'S NOTHING CALLED "SECOND"
IN MY WORLD,
MY HEART OPENS JUST ONCE WHEN
SOMEONE SPECIAL KNOCKS!!
BUT ONCE A BREACH IS FORMED,
THERE'S NO END TO IT,
NOTHING CAN IT BE FILLED WITH,
BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING CALLED,
"SECOND ~~~~~ IN MY WORLD!!!"
I hope everyone liked this one tooooooooo!!it seems there are very few poets out here on javaranch!!and people don't have any other interests too or they just mind sharing them with us!!

Ankush,
Your poems are very good. OK, here is one of mine. It's kind of sad - I guess I must have not been so happy then.
-----------------------------
Like People Balance Their Checkbook
And Analyze Their Cash Flow
I Am Sitting On The Bus Doing Inventory
Of My Life, My Emotions
There Was A Time, Long Ago
That We Were Inseparable
We Excelled In The World
Holding Hands Together
Now We're Far Apart
Not In Terms Of Physicality
But Our Hearts Have Grown Apart
Now We Have To Stay Apart
For Awhile To Come Together
And Feel The Same Old Heat
How Did It Happen
So Slowly It Took Place
That Everything I Say Now
Seems Bothersome To You
And Everything You Say
Seems So Critical Of Me
There Is Absence Of Love In Our Togetherness
Sometimes I Think Our Love Flew Away In Fear
During A Screaming Match Of Ours
Are We Two Mechanical Toys Going Through Life
Carrying On The Tasks Within This World
I Blame Myself Mostly For Being Vulnerable
So Dependant On You For My Emotions

hi shama;
u have written a real nice poem!! happy to know that there are some other poets out here like me tooo!!
here's my further contribution~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"A Place to Live In"
--------------------
All i want is,
a room somewhere,
Far away from
the cold night air,
A place to live in,
distant from the earth,
Away from here
filled with ton's of care!!
A cosy place
where sweet dreams come true,
A place where noone
is away from you,
Where i can dance on
a stairway of stars,
With moonlight scattered
across the hall!!

A place to live in
which fills my life
With more beauty than
heavens imbibe!!

and here's another one..........
IT MAKES ME THINK!!
------------------
Why life is so complex,
That you have to search u'r own existence,
Are u there to exist for life,
Or is life there for u'r existence??
Is there life beyond u'r existence
Or is there existence beyond u'r life??
Why sadness dawns on me as the day sets in,
vanishing all wonders of night,
Taking my dreams away from me,
all this makes me think!!!

JUST LET INNOCENCE PAINT MY HEART!!
------------------------------------
That's beautiful. Just beautiful. Oh what pain is experienced when one's innocence causes one to be taken advantage of. And then that pain causes one to mature. One is no longer innocent but a cynic. Then one longs for that innocence to return but also fears the innocence as it invites abuse.
Ahhh, what a vicious cycle.

thanx shama;
and here's another one................
"LET'S HAVE A CHAT"
---------------------
God is an autocrat,
who never takes his words back!!
He never stopped me,
when i was upto something bad!!
And when it was time to go to bed,
he told me,
Let us have a "chat"
and he never takes his words back!!
So he set a pyre and told me,
now you should take some rest!!

WHY ME A POET??
---------------
Love wakes men,once a lifetime each,
They lift their heavy lids and look!!
And lo,what one sweet page can teach,
They read with joy,then shut the book,
And some give thanx and some blasphemy,
And most forget but either way,
Into love and out again.......
Thus i went and thus i go,
Spare u'r voice and hold u'r pen,
Well and bitterly i know,
All the song's were ever sung,
All the words were ever said,
Could it be when i was young,
Someone dropped me on my head!!
ankush!!

There's more to javaranch's nerds than java. Keep being arty 'cos
this is getting to be edutainment and fun.
Here's an idea! How about explaining java concepts through art?

Elizabeth...nice and sad haiku. Ankush, keep them coming and Shama. Thanks for the good words Elizabeth, David, Rosie, and Deb. Manju, I learned the binary arithmetic as explained here at JavaRanch with artwork...the cat and the mice. Yeah. A good rhyme or poem on how methods work would be good. And heck, while we are at it we could do some nice visuals to explain Inheritance, Polymorphism, Encapsulation, and Abstraction.

hi everyone;
and here's my last and the best that i find in my collection!!
hope u all like it!!
~~~~~SECRET OF EXISTENCE~~~~~
----------------------------------
I had lost all hope and faith,
darkness in life seemed to prevail
I gazed across the window,
god it seems doesn't exist
Moon wreaks vendetta,
sun seems to burn everything
Stars seem distant,
something that can never be achieved
Clouds seem as if they will burst and
wreak havoc with lightning and floods
Sun and moon seem so jealous,
when one arrives,other feels callous!!
At night when i was asleep,
someone knocked at the door of my belief,
Accept the challenge that comes u'r way,
without concern for what others might say,
And no matter how far u'r end goal seems,
you have what it takes to
Achieve u'r hearts dream ,
experience each day with open arms,
Live each day as if it were the last,
for only then will u'r dreams come true,
Instead of putting things off for tommorow,
pursue u'r goal until u see it through!!
I pleaded god don't go away,but he said
we only part to meet again,
It's time to go as still,
there are many like you out there,
My heart shall be the faithful compass that
will always point to you,
May all u'r wish and dreams come true!!
When i woke up in the morn,
i gazed across the window again,
Lush green mountains with breeze flowing in,
beautiful flowers,everything seemed changed!!
Sun and moon were playing out together,
moon seemed so sweet and innocent,
Sun was scattering light and life,
stars were twinkling with me at par,
Clouds were playing hide and seek with
sun,moon and stars,
Everything seemed so new and different,
as i had found.........
~~~~~ THE SECRET OF EXISTENCE ~~~~~
I HOPE U ALL LIKED THIS POEM TOO!! NOW ITZZZ TIME TO PART!!
HOPE TO MEET U ALL BACK SOON WHEN I COME BACK!!WISHING U
ALL ................ "BEST OF LUCK" IN WHATEVER U DO!!
BBYE AND TAKE CARE!!
luv;
ankush!!

Thanx a lot Khushboo...... I luv u too........
Khushboo u might not understand this poem properly right now
because u haven't learnt JAVA till now....so when u do.....
u'll understand it well....will still try to explain it to u..!!
hmm....and here's the poem on JAVA finally......
sorry everyone ....kept u waiting for soooo long......!!
actually the poem is so long...that i felt sleepy....
whenever i thought of posting it out here....so today... i
took a "CUP OF JAVA BEANS"....and finally made it...phew...
that was really something....hope u like it.....!!
and u know something....for the first time someone has
asked me to write a poem for that person.... and i'm
really happy....so will post one for her also in some days
out here....it will take some time... because i have to think
over it..... !!

specially note that the terms in " " {double quotes} r the terms
taken from JAVA language.......!! just watch out for them...while going
through the poem......
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"A CUP OF JAVA"
---------------
"Object" said to "Class",plzzz don't break my heart,
Let the "mouse" click & make my heart beat,
My heart is a faithful compass that will always "point to u",
I,m the "Sun" of u'r life,just ditch "Microsoft" and be my wife!

Beware of "foreign methods","wait","wake up","sleep" no more "else",
u'll find u'r heart "dangling" left out alone to be "garbage collected"
If u have no "arguments",i'll wrap my heart in a "package",
as it is like glass,keep it with care,if one time broken,
then very difficult to repair...!!
"ADO's" been rewarded,"Objects" being tortured,this is the picture
of real world...where we live in...!!Just "look & feel" the pain
in my heart,without u my "life-cycle" is going to be hard....!!!
"Finally" class "short-circuited" object's heart and declared....
Although my heart is too hot to "handle","try" still if u can "catch"
and "cast" my heart and give it a lift,Let us provide each other
"random access" and share our good old memories together.....!!!
I feel the bad phases of life come and go,you just got to speed up
their departure,because there's a golden bridge called "instance"
that spans the river of time and it links our hearts together,
though seperate roads we climb.......!!!
But heed not these distinctions,only from the aliance of one working with,
and through the other are "new objects" born.Treat other's in such
a way & live amongst them in such a manner that if u "die" they will weep
over u,alive they crave for u'r company......!!!

Donot be afraid of "ADO's",because life exists in the vulnerable,the
insensitive..they carry it on,the invulnerable,the too heavily armed
perish!!Take the "instance" of my "inner class" standing against all odd's,
no complaint's,silence being it's friend,it's fighting alone,struggling
alone to survive,with a strong belief in it's mind
~~~~~~
A belief that it will get respite from the scorching heat of "Sun",
the belief that "Sun" will scatter it's warmth,the care
the love it has been craving for since "long"........!!!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

phew....... that was really something .... Yawn .....
and for those who can't unerstand a thing....this poem is "i think" based on
the fight going on between (Sun--> the company which developed JAVA) and
(Microsoft-->which is trying to develop a similar product) and u can call it
a "love story" of an object and a class of course......!!
i hope u liked it.............!!
ankush!!

AND HERE'S NE MORE.....!!

MY LIFE ---> "A DESERT"
=======================
A desert in which my existence
is like a selfish,worthless thorny
cactus, masking itself with lovely
flowers,which attract innocent people,
But when they come closer.....
they get hurt,they bleed.....
"O" God forgive me....!
I realize,the word love
is not for someone like me
It needs patience,unselfishness
and tender loving care....!!
Love for me is a mirage,
and i might never find an
oasis in this life.....
My world is destined to be a
desert,full of cactus
but no roses....!!!
Today i feel pain of thousands
of thorns,pricking my heart,
causing it to bleed,carrying
away someone's love,again
making me realise the artificialness,
the selfishness,this love
has realized.................
taking it away from me...!!!

ANKUSH!!

It's Up To You
---------------
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room,
One candle wipes out darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,
One life can make the difference,
You see, it's up to YOU!

Sunshine
When I woke up this morning
I found a ray of light
Shining through my window
To chase away the night...
I tried to wrap it up to send
The warmth and light to you...
But boxes don't hold sunshine
So this wish will have to do:
May the sun shine on your morning
And brighten every day,
May warmth and sunshine fill your life
And chase your cares away!
