WATER

some uses for water.  (photo: Christina Maiava Schaff)
Hello!  I am giving you this lyrical poem today to satisfy your thirst as I am taking a long break from the blog to work on my first manuscript for publication.  Here's a little poem just for my loyal readers.  I am still waiting for your poetry and art submissions.  Come on!  I know you are out there for I have numerous readers from Germany, France, Japan, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and also from Fiji and Samoa.  And of course tons from the USA.  So get your creativity out and sing, preach, cite, rap, dance, create, and show-off!!!  Have a great week and thank you for visiting my blog today!!!  :)  Jamztoma


She's clear about what she is
She's pure, that's the way she exists
A combination of oxy- and hydro-
Serves to quench dry throats
of us island people

Water,
Water you are our lover
Each other,
We're thirsty for one another
Summer
All year it's sunny weather
Ice water,
Satisfy our hunger

He's smooth from the lower Earth
He's cool, has no heat that burns
An elixir for islanders to bathe and swim in
Serves to eliminate all our aches and pains

Water,
Water you're a potion for happiness
that also showers upon us
from the gray, cloudy heavens
and that Jesus
used to bless His servants 
oh water
you're our life-giving source

JAMZ TALKS': Gospel-themed Poetry Needed For GOSPEL ACCORDING TO POETRY Project

Slices of juicy pineapple, my snack for today. 


Hello, hello, hello!

I have just received word from the Creative Department at Good Newz Movement, a group that is spreading the GOSPEL through the art of poetry that they are accepting gospel-themed poetry submissions NOW! 
I have already submitted three pieces for it and I am encouraging you 100-PERCENT, SUPER-FORCINGLY to go ahead and participate in this call if you are that poet who loves to write about God, spirituality, and the Bible.  Just go to their website at:

WWW.GOODNEWZ.NET

for submission guidelines.  I am rooting for "Smile" from March of this year to get published in the anthology that they are working on.  It was submitted along with two other original works of mine that have not been seen by the world yet.  The deadline for your pieces is currently open but to be safe just go ahead and get your works in before the last week of next month which is May.

And that's all for today!!!

alofas,

Jamztoma
