the stream sang softly
solace to a quiet soul
was here once, now gone

That Was The Day


Saw them glittering like gold
as they gently fell
Heard the sweet sound of each one
just like jingling bells
Beautiful melody rang in the air
filled with sweetness and full of flair
Courageous they were for the final destiny
The day to leave but full of glory

I looked for that gold
Which I wanted to hold
But t’was a story told
On the last day of Fall

Welcome To Malaysia

A great day yesterday when US President Barack Obama arrived in Malaysia for a three-day visit.  The last visit by US President, Lyndon B. Johnson was in 1966.

Thank you, Mr President, for visiting my country.

over the mountains
the eagle’s voice rings clear, but
lands on empty ears

no star is alone
closely bonded with the rest
a view from my room

no matter where, when
the past moons and eclipses
home ~ sweet in my heart

I woke up to the sounds of cascading tears of the sky. The soil had been craving for life when the weather was on high fire. The sky must have heard the grievance. Blessed Sunday today; prayers were answered, little buds began sprouting, and wilting grass could stand upright. The dehydrated soil had drunk up much of what it needed most. Energy could be felt everywhere, another cycle of life began.

Life is beautiful!
