Fii - Daily Peace Challenge "Fii" (free, freedom, peace) in Aukaan spoken in Suriname.
Peace and Figs in a Sprinkling of Rain
In a Aukaan dictionary the word before peace is fig
"figasii" and the saying "U denki wan figasii bon. Te u si taki, ai piiti boomiki, da u sabi kaba taki, a o meke nyanyan dyonson"
consider a fig tree,
when you see that it is blooming
you already know it will soon produce fruit
"figi" is to wipe away or erase
"fii" or "fíí" is to feel or the opposite of "saafu"
"fii" [fii] also means to check around or probe
as in "mi e fii fii luku san mi mu du"
I am checking around to see what I should do
"fii wan sama mofu" means to probe how someone feels or thinks about something
literally "feel feel someone's mouth"
While another meaning of "fii" [fìí] is "be free"
freedom and peace.
and after peace is "fiilli"
drizzle or sprinkle
As if when we see the natural environment
appreciate where our food comes from
we can erase mistakes
feel, check in with our friends
making sure that all are free and at peace
enjoying the sprinkle of rain
that grows more figs
in this language of Suriname

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
