It’s Quiet Tonight

No crickets serenading

No dogs howling

Even the clouds seem to be still.

The moon left the sky, leaving it bare

The stars don’t sparkle as much

They’re not dancing tonight.

No cats meowing

No frogs croaking

The night is still.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Never has the summer been

As hot as it is now,

If you go out it’ll hurt your skin

It might even scorch your brow.

Heat index at 50 degrees

That’s Celsius and not Fahrenheit,

But still wouldn’t you agree

That, that is hot alright!

Can’t get to the beach to cool off

Or to the mall for some cold air,

If only we could get out, just blastoff

And feel the wind in our hair.

I fix instead some cold drink

One glass, then two, then three

This will do for now, I think

Until again the heat makes me thirsty.

Mama

Mama used her younger years raising her kids

She woke up early and slept late

When she got sick, she took care of herself.

She somehow always kept the house clean, despite three children growing almost at the same time

When she found time, she sang

And she had such a beautiful voice

I loved how mama sang.

Mama is older now

Her confidence sometimes falters

So I remind her of her strength and how much I admire her.

She gets tired easily now

So I try to let her rest as much as possible.

Mama still has a lot of her funny side though

And for that, I am always thankful for.

Finally Coffee

Photo from WordPress library

I dragged my feet as I walked out the bedroom


Eyes, sleepy and sagging…still wanting more sleep


I managed to take a shower, getting ready to work from home


Still I was feeling sleepy


Oh woe is me!


Finally after an hour or two, I decided I badly need one


So, a cup of coffee I drank and my day finally began

I Miss The Sea

Sitting on the side of the boat

The sun, hot and cruel

I dip my feet on the water

Where it feels cool

My sunglasses on,

I looked up at the sky

Not a cloud in sight

I let out a little sigh

Not because I don’t like the view

But because none of it is true

I wish I was out there enjoying the sea

Swimming or floating along

But right now it’s important to stay at home

This is where I currently belong

Summer is here, yet inside I stay

Dreaming of the waves, the sand, and the salty air

Looking forward to the day when this is all over

Oh yes! To dream, I dare.

This Sickness

Some say that Mother Nature got fed up and released this sickness so it can heal
That we are the virus it is trying to get rid of

Some say this sickness is a conspiracy
A plot of one country to rule the world (world domination!)

But what is sure is that…
This sickness is awful
This sickness is scary
And if you’re not scared of it, you might want to think again

I Rise With The Moon

A friend of mine posted a photo of the super pink moon and captioned it, “I rise with the moon”. I thought that it would be a great title for a poem. So here goes…

The sun dips in the horizon while the moon is slowly rising

And with it my soul awakens.

The darkness stretches, as do I…

The world would have been blanketed by darkness except the moon was shining bright.

I shine my own smile back to the moon and together, hand in hand, we light up the night sky.
