I Love You
If you were my love, I would write my story in my own words. If you were mine, I would write my story with my own blood.

I know, you're smiling after hearing my words. Yes, she was smiling listening to his funny poetry, but she was unable to find the proper words to stop him. Maybe she was loving what she was hearing and wanted to hear more.

Finally, she spoke, "I would have accepted your love, but I hear you are mean, so I'm not sure if you're serious about your offer."

He was a little encouraged, "What are you saying? Just try me. I can give you my life if you accept my love."

She smiled and said, "I don't want anything that is of no use to me, but how about flowers, give me flowers instead."

He smiled and went ahead to bring flowers for her.

Note- We the humans offer chocolates, flowers, and costly gifts when asking a girl for a date. But Penguins find a rock. A male penguin tries his best to find a smooth pebble a perfect one for his loved one.
How about posting a comment in this @jacoalberts @Ambarkashif @chocolatescorpi
Thank you @wrestlingdesires

What a great story :) I wonder how far he had to swim to get flowers for her? There can't be any growing out there.

Have you heard about Farhad? He carved a tunnel through Mount Behistun so if the Pengu can't bring flowers for his beloved he doesn't deserve her 😅 But in this case, Pingi followed Pengu in search of flowers of love and lived happily ever after :)

When I am with you I feel like I am home

I live in this magical world, with giant beasts and an endless view of tumbling grey stone.

Each day is much the same as it's always been; I go into the water to find food, I come out of the water to sun myself and preen my feathers, I wander through the lovely crowds of all the penguins I know.

Yet now, instead of pining, dreaming and hoping for my mate, I am with you.

None of my day-to-day activities have changed that much but I feel a sense of completeness, wholeness, grace and calm inside my chest that was not there before.

It is true, when I am with you I feel like I am home.

The Odd Couple

"Hey Fred, how are you? Where are the kids?"

"They're still in swimming school with Mr. Flipper. Very good teacher. Tough, but fair."

"Yes, I heard something similar. But kids today, they have it so good. Do you remember, how we learned to swim?
We had to outsmart Orcas all day and on top of that, it was much colder than today. How lucky is this generation, to live
in such a healthy, warm climate."

Yes, you could say that, but do you also remember how many of us didn't come back from the first day of swimming school?
Lea and Kurt ended up as snacks."

"You're probably right about that.
When is Betty coming back from the shop?"

"I don't know. She just wanted get a few extra fish for the weekend. The big game is on and we have Elsa and Martin over
for dinner."

"Oh, that is nice. What about Donna and me? Why did you guys not invite us?"

"Well, that's the thing. Donna always complains about Betty's cooking and last time it was especially hurtful,
because Betty had to outswim a couple of Orcas to get to the salmon spawning ground.
And after all this hassle, Donna complaint, that the salmon was only half ruminated. I'm being honest right now.
Betty cried all night and I had to be up very early in the morning to shovel snow."

Hi, here's my story:
The friend Andres advises Arturo, his unmarried son.
Arturo: I put on the best suit I had, swam and walked for miles to get to where she was. She just looked, said "hi", turned around and left.
I tell you son, the suit is important, but it is also important that you choose the correct stone to conquer the girl. If you want, I can give you the address of the store, where there are some very nice ones at a good price.
Hey, cool, come with me remember that I'm not used to going out alone because you and mom wouldn't let me 😮

Penguin meeting.

-Hello friend, how are you, how was your day, mine was average, I only caught two fish, I gave them to my mom and she prepared a nice lunch.

*How good my friend, not so good for me, only one fish, but a big one, very big and it will last for several days.

-What will the world be like after our mountains, it will be as cold as ours.

*I have also thought about it, but we don't know anything about that world, they will be like us, will we have relatives in that other world.

-But while we dream about it, let's go look for our friends and play our favorite game: hide and seek, when Uncle Bear arrives.

Its all yours enjoy it.
I dunno about you but I love bird and had loads of fun in that challenge.
However, it needs prompt responses and clockwork like precision to run it.. I wish I had that strength.
I type two sentences in a row and feel tired.
Thankfully I have hubs helping me with my posts now for the last few days, he types what I dictate. hehe

Curiosities about penguins.

🐧 Because if being birds, and birds have feathers, these have neither feathers nor fly.

🐧 They are excellent dancers if not watch the movie Feet.

🐧 They have a special gland that allows them to drink salt water as well.

🐧 They are monogamous or faithful to their partner, until death do them part, but they do not look for more partners, they dedicate themselves to raise their young.

🐧 They have their special day or days on January 20 and April 25 is celebrated as World Penguin Day.

🐧 According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature there are 18 species of penguins.

🐧 To know or differentiate the female from the male is by size, males are taller, as they are seen no sexual dimorphism.

Love Grows With Time
Tom and Bella are two penguins who are hostile to each other, no one knows why they are enemies, even though they are neighbors and their parents are good friends.
They both would taunt each other when they met, at school, at the market, at the playground, wherever they met, they would start to tease each other.
The warm summer has come, some snowflakes are starting to melt. Tom was engrossed in diving chasing some fish on the beach, he didn't notice Bella's presence.Bella began to dive and catch fish for him.When the two of them had caught some fish, they started to come out of the water and they accidentally saw each other.
"Hey, what are you doing there? You're following me, aren't you?" Bella snapped at Tom.
"Who followed you, I was here first!" shouted Tom not wanting to lose.Tom immediately ran into the water, Bella was not happy and swam after Tom.
Without them knowing it, the waves came chasing each other as high as a mountain, the two of them did not have time to dodge, their bodies were carried away by the waves.
Tom began to open his eyes, around him there were many small stones, "Eits, where is she?", Tom began to realize that Bella was not there. Suddenly Tom heard a groan behind a rock, Tom immediately approached, Bella was seen lying down,Tom began to help Bella to get up.
"It's all your fault, if you didn't swim back to shore, none of this would have happened", Bella started to scold Tom.
"Can you just be quiet for a moment?, we don't know where we are now!" said Tom slowly.
Finally the two of them walked along the beach, Bella started to complain because her feet were scratched by the rocks along the beach. Tom couldn't bear to see Bella's condition, he started to help Bella walk. At first Bella refused, but because her legs hurt so much, she finally walked by holding Tom's shoulders.
When Bella is hungry, Tom immediately catches some fish for them both, Bella doesn't scold Tom anymore, even now Bella feels comfortable beside Tom.They had been walking along the coast for several days, but could not find their way home.
One morning when they woke up, they heard a loud noise, "hey isn't that Bob," Bella shouted, pointing at a white stork playing.
"Yeah, you're right, it's Bob."
“Bob….Bob….Bob…”, they both shouted at Bob.
"Finally we can go home", without them knowing they hugged each other.
Bob looked at the two of them and waved his wings. Bob approached them, "what are you guys doing here?" Your parents are very worried and have been looking for you.
"Later the story is Bob, now let's take us home", Tom took Bella's hand. Bob was surprised to see the two of them, "aren't they enemies?" Bob asked himself.

The reason I was born is to love you

I never had a dream to be born,
Here I am in this ocean with my family,
I asked them why they are together?
They said fate had it over their choice,
Why did you then made me?
They said son you will know someday,
Today is a sunnyday,
Let me rest at my usual spot off the shore,
Behind her I said miss I think you miss your path,
She stop and turn to look who is that,
I stood for a while and short of words,
Wow! You are beautiful,
You must be the one my parent talk about that someday in a sunny day.
I love you I must have to say,
No words define your beauty,
I have taken your pictures in my min d,
