His Cup _ to Kailin

His cup

You fill and fill and fill.
‘Not full, not full, not full,
Far from full, not even half!’

You fill and fill and fill.
You keep on filling and filling,
Until you suddenly find out why.

His cup is a sieve in disguise.
‘This has always been my cup.
Now don’t tell me you’re that blind!’

On Wings of Love

On Wings of Love

Blames tame;
Flames lame.

Wish blamers could grow wings,
Wish flamers would ride rockets,
And notice from outer space:
We all have a perfect face.

An ob poem, in answer to Reflections _ by Kailin Yong

Reflections

The gravity of blame
Engulfing me in flames
All I wanted was a little space
To tell you I love you in your face

Blooming

Hong Kong Blooming
Or so I thought

Or so I thought not
But so I hoped

And so I still hope
Hope against Hope

Dreams _ to A

Dreams

Your nightmares leave me no peace.
Must be hard to live with such.
May you wake up to dreams.

Gadgets

This is my Nokia semi smart:
Shows squares for Chinese,
But can type Gaël’s name with an ë,
And can take pictures with 3.2 MP.

Yet for pictures I have come to treasure,
A raffle present from dear Natasha,
Nikon COOLPIX 16.0 MP 5 x Zoom
Even with a built-in GPS.

Photo taking,
Photo re-touching, photo uploading
All at a snail’s pace,
A pace at ease for my age.

He said, let me give you an i-phone.
She and she said, let me give you an i-phone.
An i-phone?  But do I really need one?
Did not tell them I miss nothing but my OM1.

Arbeit _ to Professor L. Friedrich

Arbeit

Professor Friedrich is not just any mentor.
He is a most embracing DoktorVATER.

Helped by many, I made good progress.
Had the whole paper laid out before me.

The most difficult chapters got finished.
Bibliography done, kanji stored in my head.

Had planned to finish it on turning 50.
But finished fleeting instead.

I said: Sorry, Herr Professor, no Doktorarbeit.
Professor said: Das ist aber auch eine Arbeit.
