When Dawn Breaks

Misty morning dew,
Little cracklings of petals,
A new day begins.

When birds spread their wings,
Insects scurry to safety,
From the ground, worms peek.

The sun's veiled by clouds,
On earth's face, life is burst-ling,
Each, its own business.

Mesmerized by nature,
Sat, Oct 29'11

A Haiku in mind,
My thought dances on this page,
My love will not die.

Love Haiku,
Wee hours of Wednesday
Oct 26th '11

*I was really thinking of writing a Haiku and came up with this one which expresses my love for it. The above image reminds me of Haiku which I feel so close at heart. I will write as long as I could.

Wake-up Call

It isn't just one alarm clock with the time set to get up every morning but there are other natural alarms - the sounds of coodle-do, birds singing and now raindrops pattering on the roof that have all intermingled and wake me up for another day.

Good morning to everyone who are having the same time! Have a great day!

Two Different Worlds

As I look through this windows,
I hear the sweet song of birdies,
Just a stone's throw away, singing
in a language common to them,
The song I hear at this windows
is a song over a different waves,
Where singers aren't seen alive unlike
the birdies which are chirping
among flowers, leaves and trees and
sometimes, I can hear then quarrelling,
Though I might close my eyes,
I can feel their presence nearby,
Singing gaily at their own freedom
But at this windows, my hands
control everything.......

*Written at the time when birds just woke up and the sun slowly rising from its hiding place.
A very good start of another beautiful Sunday for me. The birds are still singing.
Wishing readers of this blog a fabulous Sunday!

When The Heart Flies

cradle by the breeze,
the heart crosses seven seas,
its cupid waiting.

How True Is It?

Yesterday, I attended a meeting with our head of department  and this was fed to our hearts. As usual,  motivation is given in every session to boost our commitments towards work. I feel freshened up with such motivation as sometimes the  mood at work might slowly goes "stale".

This isn't something new to some of you but anyway, it's alright to go through it again. It needs a little bit of mathematical calculation to see the results. Here it is :

A Small Truth To Make Life 100%

Quote :

What Equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants
you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 101%? What equals 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might
help you answer these questions:

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%



11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%



1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

It is our attitude towards life and work that makes our lives 100%.
What do you think? You might have something to share with me.

Monday Thought

"Don't brood over what others have done to you. Remember that people who hurt you so often do so out of their own problems, not out of their perception of you. If you deserved the injury done to you, learn from it. If you don't deserve it, forget it."

Saw the above quote written on an envelope in my handbag. I must have quoted it from somewhere but couldn't recall who the author is. It had been in my handbag for a few months! 

Reading it  again, it somehow uplifts my spirit. You may agree or disagree. Personally, I think there's some truths in it. I don't like to brood over whatever bad situations that come to my life. Of course, the feeling that had been hurt will take time to heal. But it will be healed in the process of forgetting it.  Whether there's something to be learned, it all depends on what situations we are in. But as stated in the quote, if you don't deserve it, forget it!

After A Hard Day's Work

My weekend had been very hectic. It had been another hard day's work and now it's time to get enough rest before tomorrow. There are many more big things to do in the coming week. 

Wishing everyone a great week ahead!

Sending you all, my love.

The Perfect Place

I'd love to be in a fairy tale,
where there's always a happy ending
and can live happily ever after!

Is This Love?

The stars in your eyes,
Twinkle right into the heart,
Alight flame of love.

Let's Ponder

When asked what he needed for his birthday, my six-year-old nephew said firmly, "I don't want to need. I want to want!"

While travelling through the Smoky Mountains, I stopped for gas in a village. An old-timer meandered over to fill up my tank. When I offered my credit card, he refused it, saying, "Sonny, it's cash only here. Credit's something you get for doing a good deed."

Where I'd Love To Be

The tranquility,
By the beach, watching the moon,
My heart is at peace.

Let me be alone,
The ripples, my night music,
The shore, my dance floor.

Yearning it to last,
Till the mountain disappears,
Till the night moonless.

A piece of mind,

Omar Akram - Dancing With The Wind

Surfing for some beautiful music I came across this on youtube. The moment I listened to it, I fell in love with it! The music is so beautiful, so romantic.  I looked up for some information about him. He is a pianist and composer, location LA, USA (that's what I got from his facebook page) and this is what he said :

“In a world where communication and understanding between cultures is sometimes difficult, I hope my music can serve as a form of international language that crosses any cultural barriers".

Indeed, it is!

What I can say about his music is it's very beautiful and takes my breath away!
Take a listen! Listening is believing.

The Stranger

Stranger at the door,
Let not the unknown invades,
The latch should be there.

The Vacant Seat

a couple was here
once, lost in their world of love
time seemed to stand still

now colorful leaves
graced the seat, time took them both
to eternity

melancholic mood,

When Nature Strikes

a ravaging wind,
roots look up at the dark sky,
steel posts kiss the ground.

in sheer craziness,
a turmoil unpredicted,
great pain felt later.

terrifying moment,
oct 2 '11

* I didn't intend, in the first place , to write another haiku but the idea suddenly came to mind after experiencing a terrifying moment on Saturday afternoon. A very strong wind hit our residential area. A canopy in front of my house was blown away! Things were flying everywhere. Something must have hit my arm which I had just realised. I feel the pain and there it is, a big bluish mark. Luckily, the wind didn't last long.
