FEATURED BOOK

POETRY

SOMETIMES, EVEN THE SIMPLEST OF THINGS GIVE ME PLEASURE

 

Sometimes, even the simplest of things give me pleasure.

Like observing a hummingbird flying backward, 

Like catching a butterfly under the starry sky, 

Like watching a Siberian crane by the shallow marshland. 

Sometimes, even the simplest of things give me pleasure,

Like the kingfisher swoops off, fish in beak,

Back to its vantage point as it peeks, 

Like staring at the wondrous marine life,

The colourful corals and reefs.

Sometimes, even the simplest of things give me pleasure,

Like when raindrops dripped off my face, 

Like the earthy aroma after a rain shower, 

Like the incredibly sensual scent of jasmine flower. 

Sometimes, even the simplest of things give me pleasure,

Like seeing honeybees collecting nectar, 

That entices the bees to the flower,

Like looking sunshine on the wings of the dragonflies,

Like grabbing a glimpse of magical fireflies, 

Like rippling sound of waterfalls under the moonlit night, 

Like birds feeding the nestlings is a beautiful sight.

Sometimes, even the simplest of things give me pleasure,

Ponies galloping on the green meadows, 

Daffodils swinging in the air,

When I see love and peace everywhere.

WHILE I SLEEP


I still count down the days of December

and go to sleep on Christmas eve 

Anticipating a gift waking up next morning

My inner child does exist

While I sleep, I wished in my dreams

I prayed Saint Nicholas to hear

Well-being for everyone

Peace, love and harmony for my family

And a charitable year

Even in the gloomiest of winters 

London is positively sparkling

And spreading its love in every corner

As they kiss under sprigs of mistletoe

White flurries falls from the sky

I see the white Christmas of London 

Awestruck by its beauty

It's like a winter wonderland

And I ended up singing

Let it snow… let it snow… let it snow

The brilliant sight 

That made my eyes sparkle and face glow

While I sleep, I wished in my dreams

I prayed Saint Nicholas to hear

Well-being for everyone

Peace, love and harmony for my family

And a charitable year

As I witness the magical affair in my dreams

The mulled wine began flowing 

And the carols start chiming

When Hogwarts wizards makes snow

That never melts

Create flames without fire

Thus, how magic brought to life 

Making it spectacular

‘Twas the night before Christmas

I hear the jingle bells ring afar  

The reindeer-driven cart, bringing the gifts

Santa will always be real 

And Christmas is a magical affair

There are few things 

That can't stop me in any predicament

And I believe doing good deeds 

Without any reward 

As it's the greatest contentment of the heart

While I sleep, I wished in my dreams

I prayed Saint Nicholas to hear

My hopes, my dreams, my fears

And everything that I can leer 

My subconscious so keen

Or so it seems as I believe

Happiness often come 

As a by-product of doing good deeds 

As I wish blessings, much happiness, and even more love

While I sleep, I wished in my dreams

I prayed Saint Nicholas to hear

Well-being for everyone

Peace, love and harmony for my family

And a charitable year

Oh, the magical Christmas

It's always interesting, fascinating and adventurous 

The snowshoe hare hides under the Christmas tree

She is invisible because of her white coat
This is the time to grin with glee
And the wine to toast

And there are stories hidden under the snow
About some other places or countries around the world

While I sleep, I wished in my dreams

I prayed Saint Nicholas to hear

Well-being for everyone
Peace, love and harmony for my family
And a charitable year
