Yesterday Once More

Dear Eskay ,Thank you for weloming me to the “Blog” since it’s launching 27/1/105 as welll as introducing me to the “Poet’s Corner” on the Net.
“The Tip of the day’ is very up-lifting! Keep up the good work.I can see
your great efforts taking shape and will eventually spread it’s wings far and wide.
Though the RSS reader/track back etc are very “chim”,I’ll try to learn one step at a time, not losing sight of the good opportunity.
Congratulations once more!

My Greatest Love

1)I crossed the vast ocean to meet you…
one in a million.
From a distance,I can see heaven in your eyes
From that moment, I take you just the way you are.
Where ever I go,you are right there waiting…
I will not be afraid:
Should the sky tumble
The mountain crumble
You are always beside me,
even before the next tear drops fall.

2) You held my hand when it was cold,
I was confused, you cleared my mind
You gave me strength to stand
and face the hostile world.
You are my guiding star,
Anchor of my soul.
I can’t help lovimg you.
We are friends turned into lovers,
Together we make a beautiful pair.

3) We walked down the aisle,
Your hand in my hand,
“This is the hour, This is the moment,
Let it be, you are the one for me.
In sickness and in health,
In porverty and in wealth,
’til death do us part”
What God has joint together,
No man can put asunder…..
Two hearts beat as one….
You are the Love of my life,
Every Valentine,
I celebrate my love for you…
My true Love,
My sweet Valentine….
I will eternally be “Thine”
V.L
P/s This is in celebration of love and “endurance”
Press on……
The rooster says “Yes Yes”
Not perhaps “Never”
but for ever and ever.

They adorned brightly colored traditional “Qipoa”

Did you hear what I hear?
Ear- shattering crackers??!!
Greetings exchanged for prosperity/good luck/good health
Distant drums of the lion dance
Melodious Chinese New Year Songs
Clanging sound of “Mah Jong”
All Remind us of the happy festive mood

Extract from Jan.05 Reader’s Digest:Quotable quotes:
1)”There were only two kinds of people:
the givers and takers
The takers may eat better,but the givers sleep better”
Marlo Thomas

2)”There is only so Much you can do,but if somebody doesn’t give you a
chance,there is Nothing you can do”
Charlize Theron,Golden Awards 2004

3) Makes me say “HMM”

ALL THE WAY TO “BLOG”

A DOMAIN to write my poems
share my thoughts
The “NET” that I sought
is worth the cost.

I feel so good,I want to see
they take root and glean
posting the best..
cropped with bountiful harvest.

The Spring “fraggrance/smile”
The Summer “rain/wine”
The Autumn “oasis”
The Winter “sunshine”..
Sprinkle- Fill
My friends with
Warmth,light and glee.

What a way to grow
with “Blog!”
Indeed,my cup of joy
effervesce-overflow…

WRITE on with PERSEVERANCE
No one/someone seems reading
from a far?
God is watching/guiding from above
My vision thus,will never-shroud.

My poetic mission- MAINTAIN
Leaned on Divined wisdom/strength
For-ever SUSTAIN.

Square One

1) When I was three,my mother taught me count 1 to 10
I was five,made mistakes in numbers
My kindergarten teacher told me get back 10 to 1

2) When I was seventeen,I wanted to look like thirty
I was thrity, I wished to return to seventeen

3) I got married —–wanted more chlidren
The FPPB order “Stop at Two”
In compliance we completed our family
Now what’s next?
They change the slogan to “Three is Better!”

4)Man and woman – two individual
At marriage,as man and wife,they are one

5)Man and woman -who came first?
In the scripture, God created man -Adam first
Eve was taken from Adam’s rib
So man came first….
But my first born was female-so woman came first?

6)The doctor said I must have a whole body check
from my head to toes
The reflexologist/yoga-ist works
from my toes to head

7) At the “begin” of year,I advance from January to December
At “last” day of year, I count back minutes from 10 to 1 to 0

8) I have had forgiven someone 7 times
Jesus said “Much more, it’s 7 x 70 times”

9) Where is the beginning? Where is the ending?
Which is more? Which is less?
——————————-
Which comes first? Chicken or Egg

The answer: ____________

I am back to Square One —>

When ‘Toastmster ‘is smiling

WHEN ‘TOASTMASTER’ IS SMILING AND LEADING
1) I was sitting all alone,nervous,rejected,forsaken….
Not knowning how/when to articulate
You came forward,held my hand…..
A handshake so firm,a Smile so sweet
I felt warmth in my heart…..
Assured,there’s always a Friend ,not Foe in Toastmasters
2 Showing me,leading me all the way….
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt your mentoring care
when you are my constant guide?
I know whatever blunder I made
You’ll still be on my side.
3) You lead me all the way
Cheer each faltering speech
Give me courage for each project
Evaluate to motive….
Feast me with abundant fellowship
Clothe me with un-duanting spirit
4) All the way you lead me
Turn weakneses to strength
dreams —— to realities.
Lo! A spring of joy I see
wings its flight to realms of day.
My heartful gratitude always be…
You have led me all the way.
V.L

Congratulations and Celebration! (to you and TPC/TMC)
1)There was a Web Master who laboured day and night
to set up a “Blog” for all to share
His selfless and persevering spirit is worthy
of note and praise
There was a gavelier who watched,dreamt and waited
patiently for the day to come….
Finaly, it’s done and arrived – to his own amazement…
Indeed, he has had stunned me,soul and all within.
2)I was knocked upside down, too excited …..
not knowing what to say/write.
He has succeeded!What else? Who cares.
Thanks for the privilege to share/post my poems…
