Out for a jog

She jogs
Her brown eyes are blue eyes
Bought a sports bra

FOOTBALL FEVER


Football fever
World Cup Brazil;
Too many overnights breached


Imagine a world
Glued to football mania;
Morning red eyes syndrome


Now you've seen it all
Germany's got the gold;
Back to normal routines


Even my wife's up
Watching the final match;
TV and sleepy eyes


If only something
More tangible...
Can heal the world


Competitive sports
Winning smiles collect;
Losing tears regret


Bedtime at dawn
Wake up mid-afternoon;
Schedule gains off-side


Peace for now
Until the next World Cup;
Life minus football fever!


Just for a sporting change
For a short while,
Unruly world celebrates


In-between hostilities
Dazzling football magic;
Memorable milestones


In my dreams
Football in the net;
Goalkeeper dazed

SPARKLES BUZZ 2


Friends congregate
Party mood trickles;
Familiar laughter drowns


Once upon
A dream come true;
Foreign expectations


Invest shoppe
Moments meander;
Burst of high tide


Moaning and groaning
Kettle steam retorts;
Morning brew transits


So many words
Unsaid, unheard;
Uneasy non-conversation


Awkward these glances
Feelings suspended;
Anticipation ignored


Simple ritual
By this park bench;
Watching time doing nothing


Path of sure ease
If you please;
Leave plot behind


Corner shop
Selling queer goods;
Curious onlookers


Chinatown haunts
Quaint shoppes;
Random walk-ins


Ancient goods
Antiquity packaged;
Modern labels flaunt


Things Oriental
Goods and services;
Tipping welcome


Geylang highlights
Ancient evenings;
By plumeria scents


This new stadium
Spectacular showpiece;
Sports illustrated
