Another year older, another year wiser.
I am not asking for things I miss,
I am only asking for peace and bliss.
I was alone for awhile, my soul listened.
I searched for truth & longed to be strong.
But what is right or wrong?
Truth and strength I waited long.
Life is full of surprises,
People come and go.
Come by chance and stay by choice,
Paths crossed with knots & loops.
In a midsummer’s night dream,
Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind.
So is my winged cupid painted blind?
When it comes, the crows listen,
They hold their breath.
When it goes, it becomes distance,
On the look of death.
An extract from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Emily Dickinson’s A Certain Slant of Light.
Back in Jan 2017, I wrote a poem for R on her birthday.
Title : Inspiration
Today, she has conquered numerous mountains and threaded on countless terrains. The hardest by far is Mt. Hotakadake in Nagano. Her determination to work through obstacles while maintaining her calm in face of bad weather inspired me to overcome my own personal problems the same way she does. Although we are 6000km apart from each other, she is my best friend and soulmate, the best gift I’ve ever received from heavens. Life is a journey, walking on. & surrounding myself with happiness.
Nature Walk Course Kamikochi.
Round and round a carousel,
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
Set your mind and toughen up,
Break free, you must.

The halo effect is a social psychological experiment when we judge a person to have 1 positive quality, the same person also have other positive qualities. Vice versa for the negative ones. How often do people judge? We shouldn’t but we do it all the time, consciously or subconsciously.
I learned that superficiality and presentations are important. They trigger the vital first impression. One impression and the rest fall like dominoes.
Do you believe in fate, destiny and affinity? The celestial unknowns are fascinating, they evoke the curiosity in me. But with reality check, I got my clarity. Now, all I need is to work on myself and be massively ok.
Fast forward 14 months, I am about to meet someone who is quite difficult to forget.
A thought came to mind. Sometimes we spent a lifetime waiting for the ‘When’ but if there’s nothing solid or concrete, it follows by trailing off. When someone cares enough, they will not keep you waiting or wondering. Waiting is not a sign of loyalty or in the likes of what epic love stories unfold. Shouldn’t we value our self worth?
Patience may not be a virtue in this context. Patience is a waste of time.
