Roll Rectangular Mirror

Beautifully designed office coat
Enraptured my brain
Enter the boutique
With the whole family

Holding the bottom of an elongated rectangular mirror
Rolling it with singing tunes
Play with the different angles of my image

Rolling elongated rectangular mirror upwards
Singing “Up to the moon”
Rolling elongated rectangular mirror downwards
Singing “Down from the moon”
I am trying on pink coat

Rolling elongated rectangular mirror upwards
Singing “Up to the moon”
Rolling elongated rectangular mirror downwards
Singing “Down from the moon”
I am trying on blue coat

Lost his grip of the mirror
Losing balance
His body rolls downwards
He falls onto his butt

While I bring my son to the toilet, I pass by a boutique. The displays show beautiful office coat. After dinner, the whole family go to the toilet again. So I grab the opportunity to try on the different colours of coats. Then I ask my son’s and helper’s honest feedback. While I am trying on the clothes, my son plays on the elongated rectangular mirror I am using. I enjoy listening to my son’s singing tune. “Up to the moon. Down to the moon.” So I just correct the grammar error he makes. Hope you enjoy his funny actions. My helper and I burst to laughter. However, my husband scolds him for being naughty. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

To and Fro

During 20th century
Walk to and fro
To and fro
The whole house
Climbing up and down the stairs
Looking for
Up and down
Questioning for
A bunch of keys
And
A pair of spectacle.

Entering 21st century
Walk to and fro
To and fro
The whole house
Turning left and right
Looking for
Right and left
Questioning for
A bunch of keys
A pair of spectacle
And
A mobile phone.

What’s more in 22nd century?
Do we forget more?

Living in a vast land, most houses are landed houses. Living in a small country, most land is filled with high rise houses. My mother is a funny example who often looks for her keys and spectacle. Olden days, we didn’t know and nobody used mobile phone. Now, she uses mobile phone so it is in one of her search list. Then I also reflected upon it that it does happen to me and maybe everyone.

Penguin Slide Down

As I was accompanying my son to play at a playground and to observe the toddlers climb little staircase to slide down, reminded me of the toy where the penguins climb up the staircase then slide down to the lowest staircase. It is a repetitive cycle. This sum up with the playground result the above inspirations.

Spring

The most comfortable climate
Blooming with beautiful green leaves
Blooming with beautiful scent flowers
Lush of greeneries covering the country.

Elastic!
Jumping up
Jumping down
Pushing in
Pulling out
Springing back to its
Original position
Original size.

Erupt Feelings

Shocking news
Disheartening news
Discouragement sets in
My heart sinks
Sinks down to
The bottom of dark hole.

Tears well up in my eyes
Attempt to hold it
Prevent to show it
Painful feelings erupt
Unknown its origin
As if knowing
My mum’s feelings
When she lost
My eldest
In a car accident.

Repeatedly
Continuously
Painful feelings erupt.
Hide
Hide myself
Hiding myself in a toilet’s cubicle
As my tears roll down
Roll down continuously
Pray to control
Such painful emotions.
Huge waves of emotions
Splash against the rock
Struck against the rock
The rock of my heart.

Before my husband took an aeroplane yesterday, he called me up around 3pm. When I heard that his elder brother passed away, my heart sank down. My friends and I had been praying for his healing when I heard he was hospitalized due to breathing difficulty. The news disheartened me.

It all started whenever my toddler uses both of his legs to clasp the mini-figurine tied to a key. A key that is plugged into my dad’s drawer. My mother let him does it. Upon entering my parents’ room and see him does so, I often respond, “把脚放下”.

Somehow on Tuesday night, those words sounded like, “把刀放下”. Other words popped out to fill in the blanks as my memory remembers his other dangerous actions. Taking my mother’s make up powder, broken make up lotion, and even grabbed a knife from inside the spoon and fork container and immediately throw it onto the floor. Everything he does was found out when I appear. All these happened before he turned two years old while he was with his grandmother. But she wasn’t like that when I was young. She loving yet firm. I just don’t understand her.

Go Down

In the supermarket while queuing for the cashier
Hip is tossing wriggling on the trolley basket
With hands holding onto the front thin bar
Tossing head down towards left & right
To signal unbearable sitting on the trolley basket
Whining, “Go down, Go down, I want to go down”.
“Please!” “Please!” “Please!”

My toddler couldn’t stand sitting on the trolley basket while buying groceries for his needs. My husband and I resolved it by him paying at the cashier while I immediately push the cart out and he kept quiet.
