Hey! This one is my melodramatic mom’s!
One thing I have realised: No one else in the world can ever be more loving than one’s mom. 

I see five roundballers at the court.
I see her dropping dimes,
As she plays at interschool...Read More

Premium Member Halloween Witchcraft Magic
Witch, warlock, goblin and vampire fine
Wearing one slipper and one tennis shoe
They all ran home at promptly half past nine.

Fine goblins, ghosts, and ebony cats too.
And a lively she devil newly born
Hid down at the corner at twenty-two

Barn owls wearing...Read More

that i don't seem joined to
searching inside for the exit door

Our planks were creaking, I only heard the music
My body is a liquid
that keeps your glass half full

I'm merely there to fill the gap
between episodes of a screenplayed life

the need for symmetry
is overdrawing a story
were us could be presumptive

like you said
those expectations were my mirroring
so your repulsion stepped...Read More

Premium Member Humility IS the Brightest Love
Love, I get love is more than a game the young play,
It is life one commits, not caged bird ‘shopped’ to mine
In the hope lives are saved that don’t sleep in harm’s way!
How can chemistry alter what man can’t refine?

Tennis with Jai Liu

Flying foxes hang replete from the rain trees
dripping in the morning sun.
They have sucked the flesh
of mamey sapote,
of rambutan and mangosteen.
Their dog-like pelts are copper pendants
that dribble a dawn dew onto our heads.

Jia Liu has an Uncle
that is not related...Read More

He stares at me with big brown eyes,
Causing me to think of stars in the skies.
He touches my hand with a cold nose,
Reminding me of how gently he goes.

He licks his chops whenever I eat,
Letting me know he’s there at...Read More

I go to see my son today, 
It is a good day. 
My heart is happy, truly. 
I wash my face, brush my teeth, 
and pick out a funny shirt. 
Kick butt boots, or fast tennis shoes?

Bay area's crown jewel, The Claremont,
Where age 24 Steve Jobs and I talked,
Well, him--as to the future--I was shocked,
The guy aimed high, humble, who want for naught.

That shook the hands of this Hawaiian...Read More

Premium Member He is a Runner
He is a runner. I used to be too
Which is why I do not wear heels
Or even slippery sandals to school.
I am in tennis shoes but he is fast.

Only five-years-old and no doubt
an Olympic contender.

Today I played tennis
It’s such a stressful term
I can’t seem to get a ball
Or even hit one too 
Feel like it’s a snitch 
In Quidditch of Harry Potter
Very, very dizzy
From all the work I’ve done
