Rice
A Poem about Rice

This is a poem that is all about rice…
Plain rice…Garlic rice…
Balls of rice…All kinds of delicacies of rice…

 

You can eat it with meat, fish, and/or veggies…
You can eat it with fried eggs fresh from the poultry’s bounties…
There’s also those rice porridge and casserole varieties…
Arroz Caldo, Arroz Cazador, Arroz con Perdiz, Lugaw, Okayu, and Congees…
It can even be made to be sweet tasting special delicacies…
Rice Cakes, Rice Tamales, Suman, Chimakis, and Onigiris…
A lot of different rice delicacies…
A lot of different rice varieties…

 

But there’s my favorite recipe…
Simplest than all there is to be…
I never get tired of this simple recipe…
Steam cooked rice, how to cook it? Come see…

 

Pour in 2 cups of rice grains in a pot…
Add 3 cups of water to that…
Light up the stove and set on top the pot…
Close the lid and open it not…
Till all water dissipates to steam that is hot…
That’s steam cooked rice for you in a pot…

 

While the lid claps, some steam, water, and vapour can be seen escaping…
For pressure and steam are responsible for rice grains expanding…
As chemicals in rice break down and start bonding…
Rice cooking is where chemistry and physics are both acting…

 

Though steam cooked rice is the simplest rice variety…
Steam cooked rice is my all time favorite rice delicacy..
Served steamy, somewhat sticky…
Never coarse and always juicy…
White as the clouds and oh so fluffy…
Steam cooked rice is just oh so yummy…

 

Farmers and researchers put their effort and all their brains…
Just to produce these wonderful miracle called rice grains…
Patience, hard work, and love are the origins of these grains…
So let’s not take for granted the value and quantity of these cute little grains…
For in a bag of a kilogram, there are an average of 36,590 rice grains…
And in a sack of 50 Kilograms, there are 1,829,500 rice grains…

 

Plain rice…Garlic rice…
Balls of rice…All kinds of delicacies of rice…
This is a poem that is all about rice…

 

"Arigatou. Okawari kudasai? Thank you. More rice, please?"

Cherry Blossom Bliss

Cherry Blossom Bliss
A Haiku Poem about the feelings I get when I see Cherry Blossoms riding with the wind

Carried by the wind..
Cherry blossoms are perfect…
Soothing, Relaxing…

"These perfect blossoms soothes my senses and my soul... and it calms me down."

In my dreams

In my dreams
By: Julian Javier A.K.A. The Cyber Mushroom

Sitting in front of my screen.
Typing this note as I think of you and dream.
Thinking what to add to the next line.
So that you can enjoy it and have a great time.

Pondering on thoughts of “what if”…
Praying to god that you’ll also think of me and say “what if”…
(What if) we had a chance to know more about each other?
(What if) i had the chance to walk you home with our hands together?
(What if) every night we think about each other …with our hearts locked and tied to one another?

Pondering on thoughts of “i wish”…
Wishing that you’ll think of me and also say “i wish”…
(I wish) I can once again see your lovely smile…
(I wish) I am the man who makes you smile…
(I wish) I can stay up all night watching you calmly sleep… See you wake up, look at me, and smile…

Will destiny lead you one day to me?
Or are you all but a dream to me?

to be continued…

what if our destinies are to intertwine..?
