It takes skill to K.I.S.S.

It takes skill to K.I.S.S. In Apathy, unfeelingly , I like what a fellow blogger, K.K. commented. “Short and crisp!” Not that it’s like crunchy potato chips, but it reminds one that it takes skill to K.I.S.S. (keep it short and sweet)! I used to summarize CVs ( 1-4 pages long) to fit them intoContinue reading “It takes skill to K.I.S.S.”

Paint a garden mural

Paint a garden mural Drip, drip, slap and dash Repainting the garden wall distant mountains high! This haiku tells of an effort to repaint the garden wall with a few tins of paints. The careless slaps and dashes of the brush yield a garden mural instead- one with distant high mountains! Quotes:- “If you couldContinue reading “Paint a garden mural”

Fry me a fish

Fry me a fish Get the shield ready! Careful; sizzle, hiss, pop, pop! Fry fish, not your skin! I love fried fish. But I hate frying fish!

Viewers versus players

Viewers versus players In front of the box, screaming in frenzy, but you are not the players! This Haiku observes the frenzied enthusiasm displayed more so by viewers than the player themselves.

‘Apathy’, unfeelingly

‘Apathy’, unfeelingly Great sufferings, yet void of emotions and care, feeling, what feeling? This Haiku is about the indifferences and apathy. So much energy is spent on destructions, when they should spent on ‘building’ the nations.

They say Chinese’s tongue can’t ‘loll’!

They say Chinese’s tongue can’t ‘loll’! I used to envy my classmates. They can roll out any tongue-twisters easily! Some Chinese, not all, struggled ‘lolling’ along. It took me many ‘moons’ of conscious practices to reduce lisping! Of course, nowadays we have speech therapists! “Have you been living overseas before? UK, US, Australia?” “Noooo!”, theContinue reading “They say Chinese’s tongue can’t ‘loll’!”

Love and kisses

Love and Kisses Caring tenderly doting with such endearment adoringly…smooch! I have seen varied families upbringings. For some, saying ” I love you” and ‘smooches’ are alien, non-existent and an embarrassment. Perhaps only when one was a baby: a time when one cannot remember being kissed! This Haiku envied the many kids and families whoContinue reading “Love and kisses”
