resolution

I rested my resolution

on the contours of your lap

and floated my future

down the rivers of your heart..

let it be it

if the world  ends now

i would say fine,  let it

if that is what  it takes

to start a  life with you

.

to start a  life with you

if  that is what  it takes

i would say fine,   be  it

if the world  ends now..

snowflake

still

we stay cuddled

in our own little corner

watching the snowflake

whitening and brightening

everything beyond

our window sill

.

still

we stay cuddled

in our own little corner

watching the snowflake

livening and chilling

everything beyond

our window sill

.

and we know

that all the fun is here

in our own little corner

watching the snowflake

fluffing down

as we warm by the chimney

still…

Turn around and you will faint!

About this rhyme/saying:~

This rhyme/saying teases woman who looks convincing from behind but different from the front..

The author/owner has compiled for record, a collection of early Hokkien sayings, proverbs, rhymes and ditties to capture the essence and spirit of his hoi polloi, a community originating from the southern province of Fujian, China where individuals climbed aboard bum boats, crossing the South China Sea to settle in faraway lands to escape the brewing civil unrest and a way out from hardship carrying along with them in their journey, nothing except their trademark ponytails and their beliefs, very much rooted in Confucianism. These ditties retell their story and their lifestyle way back then so that the younger generation can gain an insight and foothold to their origin..
