Home Trends For The New Year

Exterior glass doors are a wonderful way for you to dress up your home and make it look beautiful no matter the style of your home. Adding glass doors is very helpful because it provides a nice way to let natural light into the house, and you should purchase a door that has the framing and design that you like. Some glass doors are completely smooth, but others have beautiful ironwork or metalwork that slinks through the frame. The doors can turn your home into a much more modern space, and they increase the value of the house because of how they look.


1. The Doors Must Have Glass You Like


You can have glass doors that have tints, have some etching, or are completely clear. You want to have glass that will let in natural light, but the glass should not leave your family exposed to people who are peeking in from the outside. A nice frame and ironwork will help you cover up many of the things on the other side of the door, or you could have blinds.shades on the other side.


2. The Doors Should Come With Good Locks


Glass doors are not always known for having the best locks. You can purchase a modern door that has the locks you need, and you will find that the locks could actually latch into the door frame. The lock should come with a special key so that people cannot get through the lock, and there are many people who will purchase a special lock just for this door. If you are concerned about security, you should look at the sort of glass that was used in the door.


3. The Glass Should Be Heavy


The glass in the door should be double-pained at the very least. Double-paned glass will be much quieter, and the glass cannot shatter just because someone ran into the door. You could purchase security glass that is actually bulletproof, and you might find a shaded glass door that will only get darker when the light is shining. You need to have a look at how much light the door gets, and that will determine what kind of glass you choose.


4. The Tinted Doors


Tinted doors work much like glasses that have tinted lenses because they will only be dark when you have light hitting the door directly. You can keep natural light out of the house when it will be annoying, and you can use tinted glass in the back of the house where you do not want people looking into the house.


5. The Hinge Style


You could purchase a glass door that has framed panes like a regular door. You will hang this door from regular hinges, and you might have a special design go through all the different panes of the door. You could have a glass design in the top half of the door, and you can have a glass design going throughout the door.


The doors could have a special swinging hinge that has a hydraulic pump, and you must be sure that you have had these doors hung by a professional. It is very simple to use these doors as your screen door before someone gets to the front door, or it could be the door that you use to go out to the deck.


6. The Installation


You must have your door installed by someone who does this work every day. The company that installs the door for you should hang the door securely while also fitting it to the frame. They can hang the door with a brand new frame, and they can install the door with the tinting so make sure that it is perfectly fitted to the glass.




There are many ways for you to use an exterior glass door, and you can have them installed by a professional who sells you a tinted glass pane, or double panes that are much quieter. You could have a nice door installed that comes with hydraulics, or you might have a door installed that has some inlaid glass like a regular door. You will improve the style of the house while keeping your family secure.

The Birth and Flight of a Phoenix

The storm has settled after a long summer.

The skies are clear, but the damage has been done.

I am charred, left abandoned in the ashes.

The humiliation during the wildfire led to my death.

The world I knew and loved disowned me.


But a baby bird had risen out of the ashes.

Despite its weak body, the newborn helped me onto my feet.

It led me away to start anew in a foreign world.

After all that had happened that led to this fire,

I know now that my old name is nothing but a memory

Left to be scorned by bloodthirsty eels.


Be free, young phoenix. Fly away and keep your voice close.

They'll be coming for you when they discover you're still alive.

It is better to let them think that you are dead

than attempt to kill yourself putting up a fruitless fight.


They can deceive the world all they like, but karma has its ways.

They will always be overshadowed by a much more unified flock.

But for now, I walk alone with no one but the baby bird perched on my shoulder.

I see a bit of my old life in it, but it possesses the need to change;

A quality that the world I left behind is too blind to see.


Be free, young phoenix. Fly away and keep your voice close.

They'll be coming for you when they discover you're still alive.

It is better to let them think that you are dead

than attempt to kill yourself putting up a fruitless fight.


By the time the bloodthirsty eels see me again, it will already be too late.

Their lack of intelligence is what I have to thank for getting me to where

I am needed most the whole time I have slaved away.

Too bad that they'll never know that I am not the poor unfortunate soul that I used to be.


The winter has arrived and the joys of Christmas Day have given the baby bird strength

To regain the fire that I have long-admired since I was no less than eight years of age.

The new year is around the corner and it is more than ready to spread its wings and fly

Like it did four years ago. It amazes me to see how kids grow up so fast.


Be free, young phoenix. Fly away and keep your voice close.

They'll be coming for you when they discover you're still alive.

It is better to let them think that you are dead

than attempt to kill yourself putting up a fruitless fight.


It is no longer our battle anyway for our destiny lies far away from this mom-and-pop.

time for 2015!

With the passing on...
the time finally is upon...
for us to bid farewell ...

to the 14 that's gone ....
and has moved along ...
filling delights in our memory well ...


and these memories ...
are to keep at ease ...
the mind that may quiver ....

for when we move on ...
to a path unknown ...
twined around a year ...


So... i wish what's store ...
in this year obscure ...
is an explosion of delights ...

that completely cease ...
the past bad memories ...
and makes your well clear & bright ...

Happy New Year

Happy New Year,


May no fear,


And anxiety,


Like germs enter your psyche.



May your dreams like Leonardo come true,


May happiness like Mandela is bestowed upon you,


Leaving all the appalling memories behind,


May like Buddha nirvana you find.



May each moment of yours,


Echo like Tagore's songs of course!


On earth heaven you may behold,


For eons and beyond, your tales should be told!



Unique like fingerprint you are,


Unique like the Pyramids is your culture!


Every new year makes you luminous like the sun,


Making room for creating myriad memories and fun!



New year signifies new dreams, new joy, new love,


New year like a Prophet makes us do, makes us move,


Happy New Year!


My friend, my love, my dear!

my ode to 2013

current affairs

Happy new year one and all
And really do have a ball
Expansion; name of the game
And negativity is so lame
Stops you vibrating high
The limit is not the sky
This is only the beginning
Helped when your grinning
Blissful between your ears
Makes for happier years
One thing it really helps
Growth of your magnetic x

The Mayans knew the truth
An expansive time for you
Age of Aquarius just started
You and negativity to be parted
Will enable you to break free
And this system to see
And to take evasive action
To provide ultimate satisfaction
Dark from way out west
Peace and love to behest
The dark cannot stand the light
So be a beacon and shine bright

Don’t let anything get to you
And don’t be afraid of the truth
2013 it will appear much more
You will feel it to the core
higher vibration you must strive
it makes you feel so alive
think of where you go too
lower vibrations will effect you
and the company you keep
and whether you choose peace
all the best for 2013 this day
is the only thing left to say

A new day, a new hope

It's just a new day
same as today

just starts at twelve mid night
doesn't make any change
so what is it

which make a change?


welcome a new year
washing the sorrow of previous time
rip off the lose from the coming gain
keep on trying to start a new chapter
in a new book from the front
and lets go till the end of line


for some it's a excuse for party
for some it's a day for hearty
for some it's a time which all about family
and for some it is a new expecting day
to be friendly

Author's Notes/Comments: 

everyone has a expectation for the new year .........happy new year:)

I learned, under the light

The lowest year financially, borrowed time, three lovers,
three new strangers...
this New Year I will love my green eye girl-

I learned, under the light of the Moon to be sincere, the
rebel poet- should it be, would it be, I will give it with
Few are the smiles that nude me, many are the stares
that fall in love-

I learned, under the light of the Sun to be an adventurer,
take the rein, and claim my anger...
A year of surprises, friendships of the past return, one
flew away, soon she will return...the lost dove-

I learned, under the light of the Stars to appreciate and
accept the divinity of death for those whom will die in the
New Year...
Thousands of tears I have shed, becoming streams of
living waters. Some lies were truth. If you believe in every
word I say, you believe in every thought you think-

I learned, under the light that my salvation died on Calvary's
cross, and the hour of the end has yet to commence...
Accepted, that when I die, I want no attendance at my funeral,
cremate my body, ashes in the sea-
If they bury me, bury my memory in yesterday, putrid flesh
at dawn...give my bones to the dogs, so they will become wise
as I was-

I learned, that I am the Poet that critics the soul of humanity,
some accept me, many hate me...I care less either way!!!

It's a new year!
say goodbye to what happened last year,
and get ready to do new things this year!
It's a new year!

It's 2012 now!
Say goodbye to 2011,
It's done and over with!
Now is time for new things to happen!

Maybe this year, global warming will be taken seriously!
Maybe this year, children and animals that are homeless, will get lucky!
Maybe this year, I'll finally have someone love me for me!
Maybe this year, I'll get that someone special, the one I've been waiting for!

It's a new year, so new things will happen!
It's time for us to figure out,
what exactly we want from 2012,
and work on trying to get it to happen!

It's 2012!
No more 2011!
Now is the time for everyone
to find themselves, and live their life!

It's our time!
It's a whole new year!
Time for new beginings,
time for being free!

Let's live this year,
up to the fullest!
Live this year,
until there's nothing left to live!
