I don’t know what is going on in my mind. I’m a visual person and often being tongue-tied when I’m panic. And now I’m writing poetry. I don’t know what God has in store for me. Weird. Every words begin to fall and drop into my mind. But I still thank God for this experience.

Crocodile Mouth

Limping, screeching on narrow road
As I stagger with my outsole wide open
Shocked of such sudden mishap.

No matter what happen now
I thank the Lord for such mishap
Happens when I was alone.

As I was reaching home
The other outsole of my shoe also
Opened like a crocodile mouth.

The outsole of my shoes opened up like a crocodile mouth from my right shoe first then the left one. I really thank God for saving my embarrassment for the outsole of my shoes wide-opened after I headed home from church with my son and husband. He was pushing his trolley way ahead. As I was speed-walking, my outsole of my sport shoes slowly peeled off.

Play on Cot

Stick out legs
Pull in legs
Out of the cot bars

Stick out legs
Pull in legs
Out of the cot bars
Seems fun

On his cot
Stick out legs
Pull in legs
Out of the cot bars

But . . .
Now . . .
Suddenly . . .

Escalating cry
Crying to wail
Moaning in pain
Seeking for help

Oh, thigh is stuck
Stuck between bars
Bars of his cot!

Apply lotion to the area of his
His thigh, knee, and calf.
My helper helps out
Helps me to pull him
While I push in.

Praise the Lord that
I thank God that
That my baby is fine
Though reddish left thigh.

My toddler enjoys sticking out his legs out of the cot bar. Then he pulls back. While he was drinking milk, I cleared my spouse’s documents on the tray. Suddenly, he cried turned to wail in pain. To find out, his thigh was stuck between the bars with his knee stopping him from pulling in. My helper and I tried to help him. Using baby lotion to apply from his thigh to his legs then I informed my helper to go to the other side to pull him with me pushing his thigh. Thank God that his leg could return to his cot. And he mentioned that he did not dare to do so anymore.

As The Sun Arise

As the sun arise
Prepare before school commences
Sitting in an opened fridge
Munching breakfast, brush teeth, change to uniform
Hop into kijang’s middle seat
My father drives with mother besides him
My little brother is next to me
Queuing, passing by numerous cars into lanes and streets
Then immediately reach school
Throw my bag onto my seat
The school bell rings
And rush to march.

As the sun arise
Loud horrifying crows’ sound
Startled me from dreamland
Though can not sleep
Quiet time gives strength
Immediately, prepare to go
To work without hassle.

As the sun arise
Little birdies are chirping
Chirping with melody enters
My dreamy ears and
Heard in my dreamland
Cooling air-conditioner suddenly auto-stops
A cute voice calls
Waking me from dream
My head turn right
Capturing a pleasant sight
Who is greeting me
With his captivating smile
Compelling my heart to
Walk towards my toddler
Where he lovingly gives
Three morning greetings with
A caring hair rub
And so do I
Then we pray together
And push his cot
Out of the room
Feeding milk, change clothes,
Wet wipe his face
To freshen him up
Next, dry wipe and
Time to be together.

As I reminisced about my Tuesday’s experiences of having a two years old toddler, the inspiration in the third paragraph was birthed out.

Furthermore, my memories during my youth and children were sparked and depicted at the first and second paragraph.

Later on, I revised it upon referring back to it repeatedly.

God really amazes me to unexpectedly leading me into poetry for not being an eloquent speaker.

Cute Dog Pee Stance

Body facing backward towards the television rack
Pulling legs apart similar to a dog pee stance
With his right foot touches the cover
The cover of the television rack
Slowly, his foot closes it
Everyone’s eyes pop out
But turns to
Amazement,
Awe,
Cheers, and
End in applause.

Upon returning home from a workshop class held in the library, my mother and helper informed me about my toddler’s actions. My helper laughingly showed the way he acted. My parents are laughing as they re-told his cute and funny stances. These reminded me the previous day I closed the cover of the television rack with my right foot though facing forward. Unexpectedly, my toddler mimicked my actions in an extreme way due to his various experiences. When he was much younger, he saw a puppy’s stance to pee whenever my husband and I brought him out for a walk.

Upon imagining these things in my mind, the above inspiration was birthed out as I kept on revising it continuously. I’m amazed by the little boy God has blessed me with. Unknowingly, many of his little actions give me inspirations.

Tick Tick

Tick tick
Tick tick

Tick tick
Tick tick

A head laid onto bolster
It is my husband’s head
Turning his head to find
The source of the sound
Tick tick tick tick tick

Suddenly, he whispers his worries

The tick tick sound causes
A gruesome nightmare to him
The air conditioner leaks again
Upon waking up, the sound
Comes out from his right
The person sleeping next to him.

Oh, I was typing on
An old iPod just given
From my brother who upgrades
Then he willingly passes it
To me. In actual fact
The iPod belongs to my dad.

Tick tick
Tick tick
Is the sound of typing
Into the notes of iPod
Typing down what inspires me
From the paper of mini-notebook
For an easy upload to the web.

Swiftly, I explore the settings
Searching up and down prayerfully
Praise God and thank God
To open my eyes to
Switch off the typing sound.
Thank God for His wisdom
Upon me through Christ Jesus.
Praise Him and glorify Him!

As I was typing the 有恐龙 poetry from my notebook into iPod, my husband looked baffled on my bolster then gently whisper his nightmare. I immediately stopped typing and tried to go to iPod’s setting to remove the tick sound. Thank God for Him to open my eyes to choose which option to switch off the tick sound. I didn’t mean to disturb my husband’s sleep. The past few days, my husband was sound asleep while I was typing. Unexpectedly, tonight is a different sleeping weather for him.

Spinning

Suddenly the world seems spinning
Spinning to the point of
My body lose its balance
Balance of stand still
Balance to walk
Then I realize
My head is spinning
My mind immediately goes blank
Quickly, I held the table in front of me
Closing my eyes

A few seconds later
Everything returns to normal

The first sentence came when I felt giddy at the food court. All I can do is to quickly find something to hold on to. Thank God for the wisdom what to do. So I immediately take sweet according to what my mother ever told me what I should do if there is a sudden dizzy.
