The question of, “Are you in the meeting?” sparks my fanciful poetic imagination to run wild. Many visual images come to my mind and eventually the right words help me to speak it out. Having fun with my imagination then I am back to handle my son and work. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

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.

Our assumptions are wrong spectacles
Clothing this in mind and eyes
Will lead to wrong conclusions and actions
Disastrous consequences will destroy ourselves ultimately

Being too emotional as a mother when my son misbehaves, unexpectedly, he enjoys irritating me. Sometimes, I locked myself in the bathroom to cry after the struggle ends. After I calm down, I realised that humans are emotional being. EB acronym is produced. Inserting letter B will be EBB. Pondering about it, lead me to a picture. Picture came into my mind of a person being blown by an explosion. It is a movie that I watched before. Afterward, the movie showed that the person disappeared. Thank God it is not gross. According to the dictionary, ebb means

    1. The flowing back of the tide as the water returns to the sea (opposed to flood, flow)
    2. A flowing backward or away; decline or decay: the ebb of a once great nation.
    3. A point of decline: His fortunes were at a low ebb.
    4. To flow back or away, as the water of a tide ( opposed to flow )
    5. To decline or decay; fade away: His life is gradually ebbing.

Upon pondering this word, “emotion”, emotion tends to get the better of me too. It can be disastrous if depend it as compass. Let me share my bad experience into a learning experience.

Excited to get the first illustration project, I willingly accept it when my mom and brother disagreed. They disagreed to accept from my relative whom I felt close during young times. But she flew overseas to further her studies and no contact with her for 12 years and returned. Willingly, I emailed her the sketches. Upon knowing my price
though half lower than the market price, she told me she didn’t want to continue it. Regrets crushed me to know her true mask. If I know, I should believe my mom and brother. Afterward, my sister did mention of my relative character. Before I didn’t believe my relative is a cunning person. Now, it is a hard truth for me. Gulp. Like a hard stone in my throat and I was depressed. Obviously, I wore the wrong spectacle back then. Though no contact now and without her apology, I feel sad to lose such relationship. My dad also dislikes this relative. Then I realised those freelance artists will request for 50% deposit for the charged amount. I feel that I’m like a fool. Thank God that the second client introduced from a friend is approved by my family and completed the project.

My son wants his grandma so badly to say, “受不了” to my mum who just stepped into the house. He said that he was jealous yesterday when my mom went out with my dad. I wonder and wonder. Can we say that to our Lord? Does the Lord also feel the same towards us?

Mum

Mum

Our most unexpected moment is
To be a mother
To nurture our little ones
To adulthood so that they will not err.

Suddenly, “Most Unexpected Moment” produced the acronym of MUM. But it rings true to me upon reaching motherhood phase.

HR or HDR

HR or HDR

Taking care of our babies to adulthood may seems a hassle
Though hassle, people and family also feels rewarding
Even our obedience to our Lord
May seems hard at times, but rewarding in time to come
And prevent us from inner and outer destruction
From the trap laid by the evil one
Who wants us to suffer with him in the abyss of fire.


Inspiration On: Friday, 3 May 2013 at 12:45am to 1:22am

“HR”, “HDR”, “Headache Rewarding” then “Headache But Rewarding” inspired me, while I was caressing my son to sleep. It was like the acronym then the definition came. Though taking care of my child is draining me, sometimes I feel rewarding whenever I was reminded of my family and friends told me that. HR stands for Human Resource department in the corporate world who are in charge of employing people. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range photography refers to the range of brightness levels that exist in a particular scene – from darkest – before complete and featureless black, to lightest – before complete featureless white according to http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/hdr.shtml.

Ado

Are we so busy until we rush to complete tasks?
Until accidents happen to wake us up?
Usually, accidents occur when we are not careful, exhausted from our daily busyness, and our mind is somewhere else.

It was quite sudden to have the above inspiration. In dictionary, ado means busy activity; bustle; fuss. Usually, accidents occur when we are not careful, exhausted from our daily busyness, and our mind is somewhere else. I have encountered it myself in the kitchen when I cut an apple for my toddler before.
