Friendship Behind the Scenes


When Will the World know Peace … ? By DG MARYOGA

It was on a sunny May day in 2015 when my husband and I met our Parisian friend Camille in the Historical Plaka under the Acropolis to show her around and then drive to Sounio to enjoy the sunset from the Temple of Poseidon.

Greek-French Friendship under the Acropolis ... Greek-French Friendship under the Acropolis …

Shall we Engrave Friendship on the Ancient Coloumns like Lord Byron ... ? Shall we Engrave our Friendship on the Ancient Columns like Lord Byron … ?

Shall We Engrave Friendship & Solidarity on the Ancient Colums like Lord Byron’s verses … ?

Joy of Spring – Acrostic Poem

November is the month of the glorious Jacaranda.

Wishing you all a great  weekend filled with love and happiness!

P1200241-001 I'm feeling lucky- signed

  • Joyful is the song in
    Aussie land
    Cantata in D major
    Across the landscape
    Radiant purple
    Adorns the
    New vision of the world
    Days of bliss and harmony ahead
    As we reach out to each other with love and respect

Twilight Songs


P1190442 signed

Once upon a time

You were like a butterfly

Here and there and everywhere

Now you are stuck in a wheelchair

Once you sighed day in day out

“Why must I live so long?”

Now you’re blissfully content

You don’t remember

What you’ve ever said

You live in a foreign land

Like most in the dining room today

The piano plays soft melodies

Of bygone years, I feel my eyes

Well up with tears

Tears keep rolling

Down my cheeks

As I watch you sitting

Motionless, expressionless

I turn away my face:

A young nurse’s belly carries

A new life, a new beginning

Amidst the very ending

My tears keep rolling

Down to my trembling lips

The nurse keeps smiling

Her words are sweet

“Come on love, up you go

One two three, well done

Hang on to your walker, dear”

The old soul, half her size

Slowly shuffles on

I shed one more tear

My wet eyes I wipe…

The piano played

Their songs and mine

Once upon a time

Lavender – Acrostic Poem

English lavender. Photo taken with my very smart phone HTC Desire 300. September 2015

Lo and behold
A purple miracle in the clay pot
Vanished in an instant are
Evil landscapes and
Nauseous thoughts
Drowned in its dreamy beauty my
Eyes and aching soul bathe and

The Substitute Sun by Boris Glikman


A story to make you think and laugh by the very talented Australian writer Boris Glikman.

The Substitute Sun by Boris Glikman Image by Agnieszka

The world awoke one bright morning to find that the Sun was gone, replaced by a circular cardboard cut-out. The cut-out was roughly coloured in by a yellow pencil, with some of the colouring straying beyond the circumference of the disc and staining the blueness of the sky. Short cardboard rays were coming out of the rim and there was a smiley face sketched inside the circle. It looked just like a child’s drawing of the Sun.

After mankind had recovered from the shock of losing their beloved star, plans were made to locate it and put it back in its rightful place. Great rewards were offered to anyone who could provide information as to its whereabouts. Police forces allocated their best men to try and pinpoint who was likely to commit such an act.  Pressure was put on crime organisations to reveal if this was their…

A Hippy Tune

A Funny Bunny Poem

Spring starts in Australia on 1 September, so here’s a poem for Spring when bunnies enjoy life the most.

IMAG1387 signed crop

Funny Bunny
Loves li’l Mrs Bunny
Fat and tall is he
Slim and small is she
What a pair!
Fair is fair
Fairer she than he

Yet cuteness does not matter
Even though he’s fatter
Every day they frolic
In their paradise bucolic
Sniffing flowers
One by one
Nibbling clover
Tumbling over
Oh those sweet embraces
Over and over

Love’s all that and more
Let’s make love, not war!

<3 <3
