Money is not all,
Tolerance and kindness work
life needs encouragements.
Snakes and rats run,
when they see Indian Mon-goose,
Mon-goose, Asian specie.
There's Mongoose bikes,
Which is a brand name, of course,
Not an animal goose.

In 55 Words-Imagination Has Wings

Remains hidden,
Until dug out all of a sudden,
Like an engine,
It needs fuel to run.
Until then, more than one can imagine,
It sparks fun.
It cannot be measured by length,
it's something in depth.
It could be giant and gentle,
It's tricky to handle.
Imagination has wings,
Let it evoke magical things.

Happy October Family Time at NU, Dear Sheng The Kenwood!

Crows, you black Wu’Ya bird,
Hold up your chin,
let the party begin:
Jiving, wiggling, and running some more,
Soaking the energy to continue to crow.
Don't quit because your peers are colorful,
Stop shaking from behind the curtain,
Face the music instead of
holding your horses,
Life can be won without everything hidden.
Black feathered crows,
You have a family,
a background,
and an official name,
Don't give up hope to claim your fame!

Loyalty (A short story)

Nilly is an alligator.

Adam is a monkey.

They enjoyed talking to each other when they met.

It was time for them to bid goodbye.

They were at the bank of a river near a willow tree.

"I wish we could be friends for good." Said Adam.

"We will be friends, but we cannot be together. You must live on the shore, I must live in the river, we watch over one another though." Signed Nilly, "And you can be sure that I always enjoy your company, Adam."

And they parted.

Years later, a trader caught Nilly, placed him in a cage and took him home.

Adam happened to be nearby and he recognized Nilly. He followed the trader home
and rescued Nilly while the trader was taking a shower.

Once back to the bank where Adam and Nilly used to meet and part, Adam helped Nilly into the water and cried.

Although they would not see each other again, they know for sure, they will never forget each other.

The Bigger Speck By Maryida Horn

Thursday Short Story Slam Week 29: Dramas and Freedom

When your heart is feeling low,
You begin to think about your shortcomings,
And under what you have to show
For your daily efforts and longings,
At this moment you are feeling very lonely,
And usually think of others prosperity,
Never think that you are an only;
Think of less fortunes surviving deeper poverty,
you'll find that the most poverty-stricken
are dreamers with determination and self-consciousness
who never of this world sicken
but continue to strive for a bigger speck.

Music of Fire

Hyde Park Thursday Poets Rally Week 74 (October 4 -October 10)

Is the
Of the
                                                                                    The ever-green bushes,
                                                                                    The young and restless,
                                                                                    The infant in the cradle

                                                                                    In essence
It is
                                                                                    Wishful mood
                                                                                    In existence
                                                                                    It is
                                                                                    meaningful parenting hood.

For in the
Sublime vein of south western,
Fire will rage.
