Bait

Posted on

Oh, we are like fishes in the pond
Swimming with enjoyment
Until
A hook with worm
Suddenly rolls down
Tempting fishes to
Take the bait
Bait to be devoured
Bait to death and destruction

Hooks of the devil
Snares of the devil
Traps of the devil
Wiles of the devil

Temptations from the devil
Deserve our attentions to beware
Deserve our attentions to guard ourselves
Deserve our attentions to seek God’s intervention

To stand strong in our faith
To stand with Jesus’ strength
To please our Lord
As the ambassadors of gospel
To be the vessel of Light

Do we ignore God’s Words and choose to fall into temptations?
Or
Temptations are overpowered with our choices to stand in His Words?

While I went out towards the nearby mall during my son’s nap, suddenly “another me” words. My mother was at home with my toddler as I was thinking to get USB light bulb. Because most of people feels insecure deep down in their hearts though they show that they are strong. Then the other definitions flowed out phases by phases.

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)
