Journey--An acrostic


Journey took me down the wrong path.
Over to new lands looking for love.
Unless you count the lies.
Revenge was mine to be had.
Needed to have my one true love back.
Everyone looking at me in shock.
Yes, it was a happy ending.


MACHU PICCU ~ PARADISE IN OLD PERU
***********************************
M achu Piccu Machu Piccu
A ncient sacred Inca City in Peru
C annot be described must be seen
H as stood proud and intact for 700 years
U nique situation and a Unique experience
*********************************
P rimarily spiritual in its construction
I felt the presence of her Priests & People
C ementless buildings Her ~ perfection prove
C eremonial sacrifice to Sun God and Earth Queen
U nique glimpse of Proud Perus Eternal Glory ~ revealed !
*********************************************
Machu Piccu has to be BELIEVED to be SEEN ~ XOX


Cancun Mexico
**************
Carried away by the nightlife
Anticipating azure beaches
Never made it to Chichen Itza
Cause I got ripped off by the locals
Under the stars we celebrated New Years'
Now I have a ring to remember Cancun by
******************************************
Mainly a tourist destination
Experience of a lifetime
Xochitl is the name of an old princess
Indigenous people asking for money
Colors near Christmas are so bright
Oh! I think one visit is enough! ---Chrissy8


NOCHE

NOCHE DE L'AMOR
********************
C HRISTMAS foreign country
H illarious and no other Country
R elishes it half as much as MEXICO.
I loved the fact that there was NO SNOW!

T he trimmings were all there ~ Lit up SNOWMEN on roofs
Merry Christmas
A choir singing
S ilent Night XX
*********************************
CHRISTMAS IN PUEBLA MX 2005 ~ XOX


SAFARI
S-erindipity on the Serengeti,
A-n African expedition.

R-hinos, Big Cats, and Elephants
I-llusory Leopards so elegant.

Bahamas

Blue skies above us
Azure waters surround
Having the time of my life
Always cherishing the moment
Making memories with family
Asking for it not to be over
Sunny skies the entire trip

Journey
********
Journeys can be painful if you let them
Or they can take you places
Unscrupulous people take advantage
Ruining what you hold dear
Never to happen to me again
Everything in my life is so precious
Yay! I have my power back!

JESUS AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF LOVE
*****************************
Down from His Glory ~ Ever living story
My GOD and SAVIOUR came ~ and JESUS was his name
Born in a manger ~ to His own a stranger
But now I know He is ~ Eternal Son of God
************************************
Without reluctance ~ flesh and blood his substance
He took the form of Man ~ revealed a hidden plan
God gracious tender ~ laid aside his splendour
Stooping to win to woo to save my soul !
*********************************
What condescension ~ bringing us redemption
That in the dead of night ~ not one hope in sight
O glorious mystery sacrifice of CALVARY
A Man of Sorrows ~ Tears and Agony .........
***********************************
O how I love Him ~ How I adore Him !
My breath my sunshine ~ my all in all
The Great Creator ~ became my Saviour
And all Gods fulness ~ dwelleth in HIM !
*********************************
There never was a Journey Like this one from
Heaven to Earth and back again ~ And there
never will be a Journey like this one again !
*************************************
This is the story of CHRISTMAS ~ Love BRIAN XOX


Making new friends is fun!
**************************
Making new friends is fun!
Getting to know each other
Is ever quite the JOURNEY
It's so exciting to me!
**************************
We started on my emotional journey
Then we went to Machu Piccu in Peru
From there off to Cancun nightlife
And then Christmas in New Mexico.
After a Safari and then the Bahamas,
We went to London, the greatest city on earth!
And then Michigan, my home state too!
A trip to South Africa near the end.
And back to emotional journeys.
After the magical story of Christmas,
an incredible journey of Jesus' love,
we end with Brian's piece...........
(Thank you Brian for contributing so much!)
Your friend, Christina


LIFE'S JOURNEY ~ SEVEN AGES OF MAN & WOMAN
**************************************
In respect of life ~ All the World's a stage
And so all of us are merely Players
All play many parts ~ in seven stages.
First the Infant. Screaming BOYS ~ Smiling Girls !
Girls love School ~ Happy ~ Love all their Teachers
School for Boys ? A Prison Cell from freedom !
And then to WORK ~ Today all jobs open
Equal opportunities ~ on paper
In reality NO ! Lower pay ~ And
Chequered career routes to the Summit !
And then as LOVERS ~ Perfect for Ladies
Poor Men ~ spend their lives searching for G SPOT
But ~ as in most things ~ much to proud to ask !
Men relieve ~ Ladies conceive ~ theres the RUB
FATHERS are hands OFF ~ MOTHERS are hands ON
For rest of their lives ~ sharing and caring
For the sake of the NEXT GENERATION !
Meanwhile all the Men are maneuvering
Their way up the corporate ladder making .....
Friends ~ making enemies ~ making
MONEY ~ which is the route to all EVIL !
No wonder Men age so disgracefully
Meaanwhile our Ladies age so gracefully.
Then to DOTAGE ~ Men back to their childhood
No hair ~ no teeth ~ no memory ~ no control.
Ladies retain their charm and dignity
Outnumber their deceased Men TEN to ONE
Calm and serene in their Havens of Rest
At the very end ~ LADIES RULE ~ OK
**************************************
Thanks to CHRISSY for starting our JOURNEY XOX
Thanks to WILL SHAKESPEARE who thought of this fisrt
In his honour ~ it is wrtten in Blank Verse Iambic Pentameter
