Time is Love

“Time is very slow for those who wait

Very fast for those who are scared

Very long for those who lament

Very short for those who celebrate

But for those who love, time is eternal”



Time is love, my dear!

The greatest gift  you can give

to the one you love.

It might be terribly short.

Seize the moment while it’s yours!

Lebana’s Tanka


May all your days be filled with love!








Be Free!

Hello, dearest friends!

Today is Sunday, and it is a beautiful day! We are more than blessed to feel and savor it. I can only thank Him for His delightful blessings. Thank you, Oh Lord!

I had a wonderful morning! I found out that my good friend, Judy, has finally started her blog. After several weeks of asking her to try it, she has fortuitously granted my persistent wish. I’m really overwhelmed with joy and gratitude. Thanks, Judy! Actually, we have the same qualms when it comes to self-expression before.

However, through continuous writing, I’ve learned to overcome my fears, and write freely without inhibitions. I just wish her the same. I know exactly how she feels right now, so I wrote her a sonnet to further uplift her confidence and spirit.



We are inimitably shaped in this thrilling realm,

with different predilections and capabilities.

Some just glower while others heartily gleam,

few choose to bathe in the irritating negativities.

It is undeniably throbbing to finally ponder,

that many of us are captives of our own fears.

Instead of appreciating the gifts with wonder,

we inadvertently plummet in the river of tears.

Today is the time to free ourselves from this rut,

and unwanted manacles that detained us to create.

Let those abilities be used, mark them with dots.

Unlearn those uncertainties, savor and celebrate!

Whatever transpires, we just need to understand!

That we are already blessed with a mighty hand.

A Poem for Bloggers

In a realm where pandemonium subsists,

you intrepidly stand to provide armistice,

blowing away the impenetrable mists,

and embracing victory without a notice.


In a vast territory where darkness prowls,

you keenly arrive carrying your raging torch,

spreading the light and mollifying the howls,

driving humanity to the unbending porch.


In a world where you can’t blissfully respire,

you can do something to make a difference.

A humble act of writing can certainly inspire,

leading to the nation’s invincible quintessence.


You are all blessed with the gift of writing!

Just find it within you for an ethereal living!

Sunday’s Sonnet

Sunday mollifies the dreary mind,

from the past monotonous days.

It permits the equable chasers find,

the land of temperate rays.


Sunday soothes the physique,

from the week’s strenuous task.

It unbends the infuriating oblique,

and unveils its impenetrable mask.


Sunday provides music to one’s soul,

with its sweet and melodious cadence.

It overthrows the slumbering ghoul,

reliving the untouched quintessence.


Sunday is made for you and me!

So we can all dance in glee!

Saturday’s Madness

Hello, my dearest friends! It has been wintry in my place for several days. Oh! I just need a coffee now to oust my numbness.

So here I am lying in my bed, thinking if I can pull together my cluttered thoughts. Haha! Well, I have the whole day to figure things out. Thank you, Saturday! If you had a face, I would definitely kiss your cheeks.

For the meantime, here’s my haiku for you. I tried to describe rain in different intensities here.


Sparse drops of rain,

Don’t force you to take cover,

Sweet and gentle!


There’s a warm drizzle,

That spits while the sun gleams,

Mild and refreshing!


A hefty shower,

That’s espoused with a wind,

Ceaseless and intense!


Oh! I love the rain!

Whether trifling or thrilling,

It’s a gift from Him!


Wishing everyone a lovely and blessed weekend!

Stay awesome!
