AtoZ2019T

Its April of 2019 and Day 20 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: tête-à-tête
Language: French
Meaning: a private conversation, a face-to-face meeting

Poem:
the night is dark,
the blanket is brown,
talking me to dreams,
tucking me in sheets,
diving into characters,
defining new roles,
tête-à-tête,
me and my soul.

Interpretation:
A calm and composed talk to within self is the best listener around!

On dit


AtoZ2019O

Its April of 2019 and Day 15 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: on dit
Language: French
Meaning: a piece of gossip

Poem:
wind told the leaves,
leaves to mud,
mud crafted a symbol,
a fool read it.
nobody’s friend,
blah blah blah,
smelly pockets,
on dit, on it.

Interpretation:
This poem is self explanatory. One should be wise enough not to spread a gossip, specially on/via social media.

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.

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.

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?).

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.

Word/Phrase: déjà vu
Language: French
Meaning: a feeling of having already experienced the present situation

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.
