Out for a jog

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

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

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
