Dark Jungle

Living in the jungle
Jungle of darkness
Prison of isolation
Rejected
Starving love
Beware of the lurking evil

Dark sharp pointed hands
Knock the door of minds
Possessing the hearts
Sowing seeds of darkness
Into the hearts and minds
Hatred breeds within

Bitter fruits bloom out
Out to lash innocent lives
Lives in dismay and destruction
More minds and hearts are
Smeared with questions and blood
Smeared with hurts and pains

An excruciating endless cycle
Are lives not precious?

Lazy Cat & Worm

High piling tasks to complete
Someone relaxes without lifting hands
Enjoying giving out commands
For me to do
To do this
To do that
To search this
To search that

Such a simple tasks
Doesn’t bother to lift hands
Always on bed
Cluttering the place
Messing the tidy place
Lazes on bed
Like a lazy worm
Lazy like the cat
Sleeping two thirds of the day
Am I a slave without break?
All tasks seem endless

Terry Shepherd’s poetry dived into my hearts and minds. Her poetry can be found at here and I can understand her feelings to have a break.

快 Speedy

眼睛快
看到零食

头脑快
管手和脚步
拉椅子
拿零食

耳朵快
从脚步声知是谁
听到开声零食饱开

鼻子快
闻到
好吃零食

手脚快
快速度

脚快
跑去
好吃零食

手快
抢花生
从我手里

嘴唇快
吞花生
关紧紧

口快
牙齿咬碎花生
舌头推进喉咙

喉咙快
吞下
所有花生

头手脚度快
全身度快
谁能顶不住
他的快动作

Speedy eyes
Target a snack pack

Speedy brain
Signalling feet and hands
Pull a chair to open fridge
To gulp food

Speedy ears
Knowing whose footsteps
Knowing opened snacks packs

Speedy nose
Smelling
Delicious snacks

Speedy feet
Running towards
Delicious food

A pair of speedy hands and feet
Runs swiftly

Speedy hands
Snatch snack packs
From my hands

Speedy lips
Gulp snacks
Close tightly

Speedy mouth
Mince snacks
Ready to swallow

Speedy throat
Swallowing
Minced food

Speedy brain, hands and feet
Speedy body parts
Nobody in the house
Able to stop him
His fast motion

This poetry was triggered during conversation dinner with my husband. I shared how our 35 months son sneakily stealed a Milo drink packs from our snack box.

Open Doors

Out of sudden
Open doors
Doors of opportunities
Are laid out
At my sight

Feeling lost
Analyse every door
Lost in confusion
Fear creeps in
Pray to the Lord
Seeking His guidance

All door close
Except one door
Glistening lights
Beaming out gradually
Out of that door
A pointing hand points into
That glistening door
Leading my path

A path I will be going
Without knowing this path
With my Lord’s protection and care
His rod and staff comfort me

As I was thinking of my career path, the first stanza’s image appeared in my mind. There have been so many companies are looking for a full-time employee. When I apply for another position according to my interest, fear crept in of many job confirmation replies. Later on, there was a notion to apply job and leave the rest to God. So I sent my resume to a few companies.

This poetry seems sudden to me when I was explaining to my son to wash and clean his hands. He has the sudden urge to suck his thumb.

多手 Busy Hands

多手
多手
多手的幼儿

虽然多手
忙碌的复印机
他很忙的
观察我
观察阿妈
观察爷爷
观察爸爸
观察佣人
然后仿照

非常有劲
接电话
搅拌蛋黄
摸播放机
摸电脑
摸笔
摸电视按钮
摸喷水
吻我屁股洞
开关冰箱
开关炉灶
开关风

爷爷推升
他也仿照不完美推升

虽然多手
他非常好奇
他是一个甜蜜幼儿
他是非常有劲帮手
他是有爱心的幼儿

爸爸不懂播放键
他马上按和解释
播放键是在那里。

Busy hands
Busy hands
A pair of busy hands

Though busy hands,
Busy being a copycat
Busy in
Observing me closely
Observing grandma closely
Observing grandpa closely
Observing dad closely
Observing helper closely
Then he becomes a copycat

Enthusiastically
Answer the phone
Stir the egg yolk
Touching DVD player
Touching computer
Touching pens
Touching television buttons
Touching sprayer
Smelling my buttock
Opening and banging the fridge door
Turning the stove knob on & off
Switching the fan on and off

Grandpa push up
He imitates the push up imperfectly

Though busy hands
He is full of curiosity
He is a sweet boy
He is a good help
He is a caring toddler.

Confounded in finding the play button
He shows to his confounded dad
The play button.

This poetry began with, “多手 多手多手的幼儿” as I think of my son’s disquieted hands and fingers. Though he often touches things meant for adult, his curiosity makes him into a capable son. Take care of him is the most difficult tasks due to his active exploration and disquieted mouth full of, “Why?”

As Sticky As

As sticky as a sticker
Sticky body with
Sticky hands
Sticky neck
It is
The leftover of
A dried perspiration.

As sticky as a glue
Sticking his body parts
Sticking his hands
Onto me
Onto his dad
So sticky like a glue
Such a pungent smell
Enough to faint you
With crossed eyes.
