Cai'Hua, You Are The Pink Shy Peruvian and Elegant Trupet

Trumpet Flower

At the very darkest moments,
Still, I recall you, my family and relatives,
especially my very close sister,
who was only more than 14 months
younger than me, and left us
in misery.
I shall write down your name,
So that my readers connect you
to some random game,
Cai'Hua is your nickname,
Chuan'Hua Peng is your official one,
You have made it to 7th grade,
then sickness takes you,
sleep in peace!
Loved and miss you, Cheers!

Jin Tian De An Quan Si Kao (Safe Manner) By Adrienne Haywood Kittleman

To use our voice
as the gift a bird has,
is something to rejoice
when life offers a choice.
To give and receive, not pass,
makes the world a feast, not a fast,
Feed the soul with hope,
Convey the security like a pope.
Our education so vast,
From north pole to south pole-
we live in worlds of contrast,
never long to be bored.
Considering what to share,
In competition that makes us dare,
To use our intellects, so deep,
in hopes of success to reap.
Health, wealth, poverty, and justice,
Contain wisdom seldom seen,
Only felt, among the babes weaned
from textbooks to columnists.

Evening (Short Fiction)

 Thursday Short Story Slam Week 29: Dramas and Freedom

The road is messy, empty,
Silence creeps in with a haunting
touch inside me.
The air is pale and dry,
The sensuousness of dusk converging
to mirror my oneness with the campsite.
At this heels of such timid day,
Bears a slice of hope,
love, and red roses,
cleansing the muddy yesterday,
Injecting a newness to mind, body, and spirit.
Today will be more peaceful,
Maybe an order will come
to end this ongoing war.
Maybe as glow of stars hits,
My contentment will greet,
Pray for a better day tomorrow,
Bottles of beers,
A Letter from girlfriend Maria,
with firework alike cheers...

Activate The Mind Fully

Boneless Beef Roast with Yellow corn


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

The knowledge we store enriches our mind:
the eyes to predict tomorrow or reflect what's left behind,
Common senses shall not be the only indicator to judge,
Five senses plus analysis of data shall emerge.
Echoes could mislead,
Images could be false feed,
Avoid the strain of growing,
Skip hollow steps and keep turning.
Look for what's new to read,
Cook something novel to upgrade your fate.
It's normal to lose a game,
It's extraordinary to entertain without touching shame.
