Shackling umbrella steels joints apart causing it
Irreparable beyond measures awaiting doom

Hikari Yori
As I was thinking of my lackness, I realized it is my husband’s strong point. His weakness is my strength. When I am bullied through words, my husband protects me with his words. I often lose words during confrontation. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

It is great to live nearby. Within a certain time frame, we weave together upon the same theme. My haiku depicts the differences between couples and team efforts in the churches and even corporate world. This is due to hearing
1. Split churches
2. Divorces
3. Political existence in the corporate world
God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Stench

Posted on

An unexplainable, inexpressible terrible stench
Pinches my nose deep to the core
My nostril follows the stench
Finally it tracks down the root cause
Of the stench’s real whereabout.

The stench is coming from
My toddler who is in deep sleep
Oh, he defecates while asleep.
Oh, the stench is indeed so unbearable
My nose is hurting inside
Immediately, take action to clean him thoroughly
And the smell slowly diminishes.

Sins and trespassing are also giving the people a terrible stench of death. It is liken to the above haiku. There is a need of the grace of God through Jesus Christ, the Saviour of our soul to clean our hearts, minds, and motivations of our actions. Through His blood we receive the cleansing of our soul. (Romans 5:13-15; 6:11-13)

As I opened my room door, the terrible stench pained my nostrils. Then I realized the smell came from my sleeping toddler and I immediately clean him and change his diaper. As I was changing his diaper, “An unexplainable terrible stench” ringed in my mind. As I calmed down on my bed, I penned down my visualization of my feelings. Today is finalization of the above inspired haiku.

Hooked

Posted on

Being hooked into a story
No matter it is movie, novel, comic
Hard to break it away
Unwilling to put it down especially during
Its most intriguing intense moment
Various mixed feelings are going through inside
Joy, sadness, anger, pity, relief
As the story ends by flipping to
The last page or scene.

When will we be hooked?
Hooked into the Bible seeking Almighty God
Seeking Him and His face
In hearts, minds, and through our actions
Expressing our love to Him

Beginner Lomographer

Posted on

<p align=left>Enthusiastic with the new camera
Without much thinking I point to the
Target subject and immediately shoot</p>

<p align=left>A photo paper is gone
Shoot again, another paper is wasted again
Then it dawned upon me
I forget to remove the lens cover
The third piece is black
Realizing need to adjust the len’s setting
From pinhole to daylight setting
Oh no! More papers are wasted again
It is over-exposed, another under-exposed
Quite daunting for beginner lomography camera user
Perseverance will get good result.</p>

<p align=justify>For the first time to buy a lomography camera on 24 May and I immediately try it the next day. I lost 4 pieces of photo paper due to my mistake. I took the instructions of the lomography workshop too literally. The point is, “no need to think, just shoot”. In fact, I need to check before I shoot and read the instructions. Next day, I try it again and one picture was over-exposed, next was under-exposed.</p>

<p align=justify>How important it is to read the Bible to know more about God and ourselves, God’s instructions how to live in the world He has created to guide in how we should live upon receiving Christ as our Lord and Saviour.</p>

Tingling

Posted on

Tingling, flutter, tingling again, flutter
Turning head to left, right, up, down
To find that tingling source

A bird flutters around with
Tingling sounds as it is flying from
Table to table and chairs

Strange to hear tingling sound
As that bird flutters around these premises
How come got such sound?

That bird captures my attention
My eyes scan through as it flutters
A sphere is at its leg

A little shiny silver bell
Is tied onto its side yellow leg
Mixed feelings toward that bird
It looks cute but also feel pity
For its plight with bell.

My husband noticed such event. As he explained it in Mandarin, “flutter” came into my mind followed by “tingling”. Then I imagined myself in his spot to capture the feelings for the above haiku.

How many times does God need to capture our attentions through His beautiful creations and through difficult situations? (Genesis 1-2 and Hebrews 4:15-16)
