Je ne sais quoi


AtoZ2019J

Its April of 2019 and Day 10 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: je ne sais quoi
Language: French
Meaning: an indefinable quality that makes something distinctive or attractive, a quality that is hard to describe

Poem:
do you have that?
that,
je ne sais quoi,
which turns people on!
the same,
also turns a few off.
and on,
always comes with an off.

Interpretation:
We all got to build that ‘je ne sais quoi’. It’s love! That is what sticks around. That is what keeps a morning bright. Most importantly, not everything attracts everyone.

Ipso facto


AtoZ2019I

Its April of 2019 and Day 09 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: ipso facto
Language: Latin
Meaning: by that very fact or act

Poem:
if you feel superior,
ipso facto,
you are not.
if you do not feel superior,
ipso facto,
you are not.

Interpretation:
Life always has an example/lesson for every conditional path. The question is how much of that path ‘really’ had ‘you’!

Haute cuisine


AtoZ2019H

Its April of 2019 and Day 08 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: haute cuisine
Language: French
Meaning: high-quality cooking (You might have also noticed ‘haute’ being used as  a prefix in quite a few phrases)

Poem:
a team,
cooked up menu,
mashed vegetables,
secret ingredients,
little more salt,
additional spice,
that haute cuisine,
spoilt an innocent.

Interpretation:
An unwanted gossip, can kill a dream. So with an hideous action.

Gladius


AtoZ2019G

Its April of 2019 and Day 07 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: gladius
Language: Latin
Meaning: (in ancient Rome) a short sword

Poem:
the gladius,
came with a warning.
while the belief,
held lie.
trust,
contained rust.

had a greed.

Interpretation:
Words and Actions can do more damage than a mighty sword.

Faux pas


AtoZ2019F

Its April of 2019 and Day 06 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: faux pas
Language: French
Meaning: an embarrassing blunder or indiscretion, an embarrassing or tactless act or remark in a social situation.

Poem:
a job of displeasure,
meaningless etiquettes,
an animal hurt,
an unmerited title,
an illicit communication,
an alien service,
a falsified hope,
a natural faux pas.

Interpretation:
To place a natural order into the system, God has made a faux pas look like an appreciation/ambition. The concern is that most don’t realize it. Happiness gets quoted in several fonts and colors and life, naturally a faux pas. The petty issues, are, well, petty (When would we realize that?).

Et cetera


AtoZ2019E

Its April of 2019 and Day 05 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: et cetera
Language: Latin
Meaning: (usually written as etc)used at the end of a list to indicate that further, similar items are included.

Poem:
work ass off,
stand first.
dance of luck,
move second.
as a consolation,
there is third.
the rest are in et cetera,
usually written as etc.

Interpretation:
Model theory says that when two people work equally hard, luck plays the role putting one second. Then there is consolatory third. Let’s not talk of the rest. Even the world cuts it short to etc.

Déjà vu


AtoZ2019D

Its April of 2019 and Day 04 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Poem:
in a parallel universe,
is another you,
the unstoppable you,
the youthful you,
the unexplored you,
sending the high tides,
waiting to make you feel,
déjà vu.

Interpretation: 
The parallel universe here is our ambition and life goal that we dream of. If we work towards it diligently, that possibly is the best form of déjà vu. You aspire, you dream and one fine day, you stand to witness it with utmost satisfaction.

the comfort in the struggle,
the winks, the crush, the love,
the smallest parts of tiniest things,

now, that’s what I call,
carpe diem.

Interpretation: 
A leisure holiday at the beach is satisfying when earned the hard way. Making the most of the present has a mixture of love, struggle, dedication, ambition and believing in every tiny thing.

The world is a welcoming open basket. The sacrifices need a worth and everything needs a shape. Every silence needs a voice. What do we put in? goodness or stupidity?

Interpretation:
God has given most of us, from day 0, the basic supplies(which is the map) and naked dreams. Are we fighting the right? Are we fighting the sufficient? One has to opt between dying with naked dreams or dying with matured fulfillment.
