my dear sibling & some idioms

I dedicate this post to my helpful and intelligent brother. Alireza is a sophomore majoring in Civil Engineering.

Alireza! Hitch your wagon to a star for your limit is the azure sky.



I want to share with you some bee and bee-related expressions. Curious to know them? Well, keep reading the whole text.

a busy bee
-someone who enjoys being busy or active

be the bee's knees
-to be very good

hive of activity
- somewhere where things are very busy

make a beeline for (someone or something)
- to go straight toward someone or something

none of (someone's) beeswax
- none of someone's business

have a bee in one's bonnet
- to have a fixed idea that stays in one's mind


I got that picture from a really cool website. Idioms By Kids is a website with over 1000 kid drawings of the literal meaning of a number of English idioms. Start learning by clicking on the pictures. Use your noddle to guess the meaning of the idioms. Then, read the idioms and write down your own sentences using those idioms.

For sure, those illustrations can help you keep in mind for a long period of time what you are trying to grasp and grab. Have fun learning and thanks for your warm comments.

اي كه صبح ازل شروعت بود

كهكشان حيطه ي طلوعت بود

بهترين لحظه ها براي خدا

لحظه ي سجده خشوعت بود

آنچه ديشب مرا سليمان كرد

خواب انگشتر ركوعت بود

چاه وقفي ونخل هاي بلند

حاصل چله هاي جوعت بود

اي سر آغاز مرد بي پايان

اي كه صبح ازل شروعت بود

كس نديده است ارتفاع تورا

آفتاب تورا شعاع تورا

به نگاهت كمي نقاب بده

فرصتي هم به آفتاب بده

از خودت از بيان شرح خودت

دست پيغمبران كتاب بده

تا رطب هاي من شود باده

نخلهاي مرا شراب بده

تا بلنداترين صدات كنم

به لبم حق انتخاب بده
***********
عیدتون مبارک!

I was reading your previous posts,suddenly I saw this link:
http://www.gotoquiz.com/results/what_american_accent_do_you_have
***
you know what?
my result was:
What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Northeast

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.
******
what can I say...
just can't believe it!
coz my accent is PERSIAN.
