I'm born Being "Da" ...Tomatoes Are Da'Da'De'Hao

Being the oldest child in the family,
My parents call me their Da'Nu'Er,
My siblings call me Da'Jie,
To Me, being "Da" means more responsibility
and better opportunity to higher education.
Tomatoes are the very best or "da’da’de’hao"!
DA in English means Big, at times "The First",
I'm the first woman married to my hubby,
Thus I am the "Da" wife or the first lady,
To Me, being "Da" spouse implies
advantages in a marriage without
worrying about his ex-, ...’Da’ shows respect when used as surname…
"Da" is common in English words,
"Dada" is Chinese implies baba, or father,
Panda, Calendar, Day, Florida, Dallas, Idaho, Honda,
Mazada, Nevada, Wanda Group, ...
all contain "Da", be aware that
"ta" at times are also called "Da",
say, Minnesota, Italy, Atlanta, these have "ta" sounded as "Da"...

The Les-Son In Je-ne-fer An-D In The Lor-D

The G-Odd in Lor-D wishes mie for happiness:
To drive without s-pe-ed-ing,
An-d not sh-er-ik mar-ch,
To ch-ew his sco-pe of pe-nu-ts and gra-pe wi-ne,
and not behave as the bitch.
The G-Odd (Qi Gui De Sheng) ho-ped, in darkness,
To mi-ew and remember the Jinger Bread (Sheng Jiang Mian Bao),
and sa-w that how I thought like a pe-wit while mi-xing
and coo-pe-rating without burning my fi-ng-er-s.
"Jesus (Yesu), i love you, u only...",
his words id-en-ti-fy the goat-will
in min-d, whi-ch is why it is har-d 4 mie
to detach, desert, or betray the Lor-D.

The Circle of Love (Home -->OKC-->Houston-->Frankfurt (Germany) -->Washington D. C. -->OKC -->Home

Love is a magical thing,
I like to doubt about his whereabouts,
But when I see him remain,
behave like a gentleman who's loving,
I feel like a foolish spouse:
Constantly he gives me comfort and assurance,
I feel cared for and understood,
He spices my mood,
I wish to expel those questionable thoughts
and stay upbeat, who care about truth?
I love him, and our boys as a family,
have a smooth fly home from Germany...

The Wildcat Guide Hour (4 Hyde Park Poetry Rally W70 and Short Story Slam Week 25)

Carved by the calmness,
Silent sea lies open to the sky,
I ride toward the imagery desert,
Each printed footstep whispers a tale,
The sun woos the shore
in simple nudity,
Nothing dark stirs, to expel the spell
cast by the hot waves,
To Heaven as bare, as pure as chaste,
White as the light, bold as the move,
The dunes cling sleepily,
Each to its proper position,
Among the fields this naked place
withholds some wildcards
that is assured to those
who wear purple or orange
in their cultural customs,
When victory is challenged to obtain,
Transformation is defined
at Northwestern Ryan Field...
