MY THREE SIBLINGS AND I
Blessed with God’s wondrous goodness
my three siblings and I* were privileged 
to bask in our parents’ graciousness
gladly we indeed acknowledged.

Love prevailed in all corners of our home
may it be North, East, South or West*
securing us well inside haven-dome
where we share...Read More

Four Seasons of Watermill 

Watermill, Watermill, Watermill
At the entrance of Seoul National University
A watermill that goes back to alone

In the spirit of spring earth
Forcefully turn the watermill

In the summer heat and rainy season
Don't get tired and turn around

Premium Member End Of Day
Glowing sunsets of molten red and gold,
Heaven's picturesque canvas on display,
Another twenty-four hours have grown old,
Another farewell to another day.
Tomorrow once more sweet voice will sing,
Courtesy of our avian neighbours,
Wake-up calls that inevitably bring
Attention to our domestic labours,
To the beginning...Read More

For a song and a story,

What it Did
Four o’clock sure comes quickly
The early bird gets the worm
Meetings at 6:30
I’ve worked so hard for all I’ve earned
 
I was focused on the future
Trying to build my legacy
Rising to the top
I lost all sight of you and me

Musing Over Afternoon Tea
Whatever happened
To afternoon tea
Served around four o-clock
It used to be a daily ceremony

Out came a pretty cloth
From an old sideboard drawer
To put on a small table
Used many times before

On to this table
Doylies and napkins placed
Precisely and carefully
There was no need...Read More

Winter's arrival signals my departure
  hidden by soft snow in the ground  
When Spring returns, I emerge from hard mud

I'd love to warm myself, to lay in the sun

On the isle of Bora Bora
Ancient are the crafts that lie there.
White beaches beckon those who linger
and those who taste the salty air.

I met a girl there on that island.
Later she became my wife.
Now aged and wrinkled yet still a...Read More

The wild beast inside my body…breaking all boundaries 
Stings my soul relentlessly 
Blundered blood beats through my veins with reins of
The twenty-four cycle 
I weep and seep into sullen sadness 
The insane pain that drains me…
Thinking while blinking through tears

Sleeping Beauty, Sleeping Beauty,
your kingdom will fall into disarray 
Sleeping Beauty, Sleeping Beauty,

it's been a month or two or four

Glad we don't have to build a nest of straw
Like the birdies do, one by one with their claws
No heating in the winter
Gotta scrounge for dinner
And provide for my twenty-four hatchlings

A brand new car is what I love,

So to local luxury garage I drove,

A four wheel drive good for snow,
For my golf kit,...Read More

Premium Member Granna's Picture Books
Seem so simple, trivial these books but aren't.
Firstly, humans are picture people. Always been so.
Young minds forming memory, cognition.
Before kids can read, they can conceive images.
Just not speech or actual words yet.
Feelings, however, do register.
And mirrors do stump babies for...Read More

Four seasons ’round Canada jays are found,
Perched in tree branches safe and sound;
Resting after flying throughout the North,
In the Canadian boreal forests.
Heard and not seen unless it’s their intention,
To disturb the silence, making known their presence
By confronting intruders in...Read More
