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.

For Long

 

For Long

No morning exercise at the bridge for long
Not bathed in golden sunshine for long
Not looking into the brooklet for long
Not seen these creatures for long

I have been polluted
So was the stream

seas of senses settling
storms sandstorms sanding
shadows of shadows shadowing

White Hair _ by Tameer Poon

白髮

白髮雖多,
人生雖苦,
仍見豐足,
感謝一切,
無言的感謝

***************************
White Hair

White hair many
Life bitterness much
Nevertheless plentiful
For everything thankful
All gratitude in the unsaid
