Then, A Cricket Chirred! (Jingle’s Entry 4 Poets Rally Week 24)

The sound of music rings in my ears,

Visualizing dancing tigers, lions, and deers,

I am moved to tears.

Deep in the woods, something stirred,

I thought it was a woodpecker that I heard,

Then, a cricket chirred.

I hiked on the mountain as the morning sun rose,

A gardener smiled at me while holding a hose,

My heart raced as I continued the path I chose.

The lake grins repeatedly under the morning breeze,

Lost in the beauty, I stand and freeze,

Forgetting how to sing my praise…

Sunday 160-As Music Dances

The conductor’s hands wave
As music dances,
and strings vibrate
in Violin, Cello, Viola, Bass…
Thunder alike claps roll from the mass
When the magic stops.

Goodbye 4 Now.


In the past three days, I have been having headaches, there are TWO days I was home alone, I did not drive, did not open my door, did not cook, did not sleep easily, I ate some cookies, reheated one meal that was leftovers, and get online or off line from time to time, feeling like a dead person walking…I must stay away from the blogging world for a while to obtain my old self and more…I have worked hard to show you my positive side of life, and I guess at times, no matter what I do, it is a fault or displeasure to some…

I am under pressure that the celebrate poet of May awards need to be done, thus I have worked 4 hours yesterday afternoon on counting votes and recording the correct links, this morning, I have spent another 4 hours, basically from 1:38am to 5:38am to find award tags, make words or paint on them, and put the correct information into my post….

Now, I feel very exhausted. I commented for many of you, whereever I go, I feel unsafe or insecure…Blogging is not funny or relaxing for me any more. I will force myself off line today after posting this…I don’t know when I will come back.

For Poets, If you want to visit other poets, please click on this link:

I Am Lucky 2 Live In The Best Possible Neighborhood!

This post is an entry for neighbors,

A meme hosted at Terra Del Sol for โ€œMia Mondayโ€œ

Do you have any beautiful experiences about your neighbors to share?

If your answer is Yes, then go see Kimberly...

I find myself enjoying writing these to shareโ€ฆ

Happy Mia Monday!


I am lucky to live in the best possible neighborhood,

Where one can always count on good mood.

On special occasions,

Weย will payย each otherย special attentions.

July 4th Parade,

Halloween trick and treat,

Everything is preprepared,

Everything makes one feelย great!

Trust and friendships are maintained,

While respect and indivudual space are obtained.

We stay on our own homes almost all the time,

We alert one another if there exists a crime.

Each householdย has one’s lawn cutย in timmely manner,

Chritsmas lights makeย the surroundingsย look even better.

The side walks are sparkly clean,

The grass looks charmingly green.

Kids are all well behaved,

Drive ways are perfectly paved.

I feel peaceful, and cheerful to live in where I am,

Welcome to my neightborhood, thanks to Uncle Sam.
