red rim sun
above dark

survival

AGONY OF A WEARY HEART

A broken body
A shattered heart
A lonely soul 
A dashed hope
is how his heart found mine
Found to mould what is left of it
More than a mate he is
Care and concern he brought along
with enduring love to flavour them
A perfect body
A warm blood
A big heart
and a youthful look
all sealed in one body
With promise of more
A heart broken by love
It’s said can only be healed by love
But this duo,
A broken body and shattered heart
this cannot heal.
and what can heal it
I know not
A crushed hope it can fix not
This love is not mine
she sings at dawn and dusk 
Oh, how I have waited so long for you
Now that I can have it not
Now that I can keep it not
It comes a calling
on a heart oozing blood
on a body
not fit for a savage.
Love for a spurting heart
Passion for a damaged body
Oh fate!
Oh love!
How cruel art thou.

A NEW BEGINNING

Like the warmth of the morning sun

so do thoughts of you embrace me

revealing how alive I am.



A glorious light of the new day,

so is your presence in my life,

relieving it of its shadows,

and marking the start of a new beginning.

The First Rain

High in the blue sky
a dark lonely cloud 
shadows the sun
above them, thunder rumbles;
and the trees humbly bow
to the incessant wind.

Beneath them,
shadows grow shorter and taller
from the north,
dust thick as fog gathers, 
whirls and twirls
filling the sky with
murkiness and junks.

A lone leave circles and floats 
blindly, undecided to rest
or join in the tumult
and then landed at my feet
I looked up as a tiny droplet
perched on my nose~
It's the first rain.

high in the blue sky -
beauty of freedom

terrified chicks 
in the brush -
a hovering hawk

Blossom

Live for the moment 
One day at a time
Borrow not sorrow 
From the next morrow 
Bud and blossom 
Like a beautiful flower
Each day a way
Of living it

My Love

Embrace me love with all your thorns
'Long as I wake up to you all morns
