Drag The Glue

Lizard or gecko?
Gecko or lizard?
Why are you
So STICKY to
The television?
So GLUED to
The mobile game?

Dragging the glue yourself
Holding your mobile
Dragging out of the glue on your
Bed with eyes glued
To your mobile game
Excusing yourself
Stuck in the middle of
Your strategy battle game.

Dragging yourself
Onto the dining table
On the dining table
Lizard turns into gecko
More glued to your
Strategy battle mobile game.

It is not easy to convince my husband to have dinner who is always glued to his game. Ever since the computer is spoilt, he stopped playing game. He begin to play games once he changes mobile phone into smart phone. Upon finding out he can play games, he is so glued to his mobile phone. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Mobile Phone Camera

Facing camera lens of mobile phone
Fingers brush over golden dyed hair
Tidying his hairstyle
To look cool and presentable

Mirror is frozen at home
As mirror sleeps waiting
The return of its owner
Lonely of its master’s touch

Old things are cast aside and discarded
New stuff constantly goes along
Until it fades into old and rusty
With another new one replaces its current status

A man was sitting beside me looking at himself using his iPhone camera lens as mirror to tidy his hair. This intrigues me to write poetry then second stanza enters my imagination with third stanza is my conclusion.

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.

Creativity

How do you define creativity?
Seems that
It is something done no one ever think of.

Fresh ideas implemented.
As time pass by
It is no longer considered creative.
It is considered norm.
It becomes obsolete.

Another idea keeps on
Popping out and implemented
Then obsolete again.

Just like a mobile phone.
In olden days, there are no such things as mobile phone.
But now, mobile phone is considered common.

Other kinds of new gadgets
Always come and go
The cycle always continues.

This inspiration comes as I compare today’s society with olden days especially during my young times living without mobile phone. The reason to give the title “Creativity” is in my young times, the creation of mobile phone is considered creative. Wherever you go, it is so easy to communicate with people without looking for a telephone booth.
