Mei Nue

I heard over the grapevine,
A phrase, 2 brothers said,
I paused as I thought for a time,
Yet it made me chuckle in glee,
For she answers to the call of 'Mei Nue',
And as I part from her company,
She told me never to put this in poetry....

Dedicated to Sarah & Celine Rosen

I stare up into the starless night,
Feeling small in this wide world,
My mind racing in flight.

Yet I am warmed by the thought,
That I am not alone,
In my fall am I caught.

My eyes roam the horizon,
My arms stretch ever seeking,
My smile wide as mountains.

For there is nothing like Family,
The joys of giving and sharing
All that is most precious to me.

For through them I have found,
The most glorious of love,
Ties that never break but bound.

And never shall it be said,
That in all the failings of this world,
A Family would ever forsake.

An ode to Gong Cha inspired by Tabitha Lee

Lemon Kumquat....
Golden Ovaltine....
Any drink for more than a buck,
The place to be seen,
That is where LP gathers,
From the youths to the young adults,
No place we would rather.

The first I knew of this place,
Came from a youth named Tabby,
Wide eyed, angelic face,
As she looked to me.
Championing the cause like a star,
So let it always be said,
For no matter the distance how far,
That one would do most anything for "Gong Cha".

This cause deemed ever so worthy
Each drink that surprises each week,
One could never let it be,
To those that ask for a treat,
Making deals to buy them cheap,
As my ears heard one speak
"All the things I do to get drinks free"
I be thinking this is so wrong don't you see
For this I look to the person and lament,
Crying to that Champion "Please Repent"!

A haiku inspired by JiaEn

Hunger and Strife,
Through each yearning of men,
Seeking that true Life.

If men alone perform it,
For that is this world.

Yet possible,
For through God can this be so,
No more obstacles.
