Seven Senses

Posted on

Hoarding books with a pair eyes
Seeping like a sponge

Listen with a pair of
Sharp rabbit-like ears

Sensing every surrounding
Quiet as a stone aware of potential danger

Sniff extensively
Aware of poisonous or edible consumption

Tasting every life experiences
Lead to self-realization and understand others

Perceive others through observations
Conclude presumptions as sixth senses

Not forgetting to trust the Creator
Self-commitment to trust Jesus in all ways

Reading books are my ways to learn to do things. Upon coming to know The Lord Jesus Christ, the Bible is my daily spiritual food and compass. This poetry commence its birth with the first stanza. As I return to it and write my inspiration, I am challenged to explore all five senses. Next is to sixth senses and lead to the seventh sense to learn to trust Jesus albeit unforeseen circumstances. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister. 

Dove in Love

Posted on

Love from God descends upon Mary’s womb like a
Dove descends upon Jesus Christ after His baptism

Holy Spirit comes from God to strengthen us in love
Holy Spirit is manifested in the form of a gentle dove

Dove is a soft and gentle bird so let us
Love one another as Jesus has loved us

Since Lord Jesus’ love fill our aching hearts
Let us be like a dove, which is gentle in nature

Then this world is injected with love and care
Where no fight among people as dove dwells peacefully

Then this world will be filled with God’s peace and joy
Warmth fills everyone’s hearts who hungers love

Love captured my attention and my mind went through brain’s vocabulary. “Dove” is the best rhyming words due to its character traits.

Wet Tissue Roll

Posted on

Sprayer pour drops of water
Enjoying the cold shower
Under the hot weather
Draping towel to dry
From head to toe
Covering with clothes

Hours later
Needing to do bowel movement
Pulling out hand to tissue roll
Astonished of its wetness
Oh! The tissue is wet
Forced to use it
Sliding open the bathroom door
Questioning of wet tissue roll
Then back to own room

Huh?
What happen?
Days passed
Tissue roll increase in wetness
But no wetness when she shower
Analyzing bathroom after the questioner showers
Investigating the root cause like detective
Only to find out
Shower sprayer angle towards tissue roll

Likewise
Blinded by own self justification
Without God’s Word as compass guide
To correct our inside
We are opening to the devil’s traps
May lead to our fall
Steep downhill fall

My friend confided that her tissue roll was wet because her mother in law asked. This question continually lingered in her and scratching her head. Then she realised the angle of the shower head was facing towards the tissue roll. No wonder this turned the dry tissue to wet tissue. Hoping that I will express it in poetry for her and to see my conclusion and inspiration.

Cutting Words

Posted on

Cut! Cut! Cut!
Attempting to explain
Cut! Cut! Cut!
Attempting to explain
To seek the truth
By asking my son’s stance
Instead of assuming
Assuming he wriggles like a dog
In front of his grandma’s door

Cut! Cut! Cut!
This irked me to the core
Cutting my words
To justify her actions
Cutting my words
Insisting her own mindset
Insisting her own way
Babbling like a train
Instead of peaceful discussion
Cutting my words
With her ears closed
With her mouth closed
With her eyes closed
Refusing to listen
Refusing to see
The right perspective

How many times
Do our hearts are
Closed to God’s love
Closed to see God
Closed to find rest
In Jesus Christ?

This kind of conversation irritated me for keeping on cutting my explanation instead of listening after she blabbered. She was furious of revenge from her grandson to hit back. She was angry for him to hit his own dad.

When I probed my son and asked caringly, he responded he hit his dad playfully. His dad often played with him acting like a bad guy so he wanted to play that with his dad. Unexpectedly, she hit him for doing so and the revenge occurred. Heated arguments with my son and disciplined him, but he dashed to my mother out of fear.

Flying Knives

Posted on

Flying knives
Of hurtful knives
Knives stab into your heart
Heart bleeds
Bleeds in pain
As
Blood oozes
Out of
The wounds.

Beware knives
Knives of hurtful words
Knives from behind
Knives of
Office politics.
Knives from
Friends.
Knives from
The evil one
The devil
Our real enemy.
Seek God’s help
Taking refuge in Him
Through Christ
His Son.

The idea of flying knives came about whenever I think of office politics. Then the feeling of the knives is related to the evil one. All I can do is to ask for God’s protection and find refuge in Him.

Damaged RAM vs Dead Fish

Posted on

Blank monitor screen!
System failure!
Is it the motherboard?!
Diagnosing and troubleshooting.
Diagnosing and troubleshooting again.
OH! It is just
A bar of RAM is damaged!
Removing it
The computer system is alive again.

Floating, floating.
Floating around the aquarium.
A fish body is turned upside down.
OH! It is
A dead fish!
REMOVE!
REMOVE!
Or else,
The whole fishes will also die.

Smearing of conscience!
Darkness dispels out.
Dirt floats onto the river.
Unknown sin appears out.
REMOVE!
REMOVE!
Receive Christ,
Receive cleansing through His blood.
Or else,
Clear conscience deadens,
Covered in darkness,
Poisonous river,
Harming and affecting others.

At first, I thought that the motherboard was damaged. My heart felt down. As I was troubleshooting my computer CPU, I was reminded about the RAM. Then I tried removing each of the two bars of RAM. When I found out that a bar of computer RAM was the one affecting the whole system down, the above inspiration birthed out. Followed by the concept of a dead fish in the aquarium. My heart feels joyful and satisfied that my hard work is not in vain. Thank God for that.

Dirt, Stone & Sin

Posted on

Enormous hard dirt covers the ear holes
Is liken to
An enormous stone covers the cave.

Piling sins deafening hearts’ ear
Is liken to
An enormous stone covers the cave.

Someone whined to me to dig out his ear dirt. The last few days, I was aghast of his ear dirt and applied my toddler’s ear wax solution for a few days. Until yesterday, the dirt was gone after I dug out his softened ear dirt. Upon knowing it is very comfortable to have someone digs out his ear dirt, he requests it by whining like a baby. I refuse it to let him be more independent to dig his ear by himself. It has been years for him not to dig his own ears’ hole.
