A smiling star shines one indigo glow,
Captures my heart from far below.
Winking goodnight sweet angel holds,
Forever and always till the bells toll.

In the boundless azure dome,
The glorious host of light.
She is silently watching,
Keeping vigils lone and high.

She is of such brilliance,
I am mere dust below her feet.
Separated by a million lightyears,
Heaven and earth will never meet.

And the smiling star starts to fade,
Rage against a darkened sky.
All that glitters is not gold,
Only teardrops on a grey lawn cold.


Two roads diverged in misty woods,
I am one traveller, long I stood.
Do you hear the beats of the horses’ feet?
Swishes in the dew,
Cantering through in their solitude.
Thunder of hooves galloping free,
Wild and untamed without a care.
They seem to know their way,
A way I’ve lost my way.
To choose the left when nothing’s right,
Or tread right when nothing’s left.
Let an adventure new begin,
It’s in the journey so start again.
May you be blessed with friends who will walk with you an extra mile. Across fields of shamrocks, miles and miles of joyful smiles.

26th Oct.

Day in day out I’m busy,
I wonder if this is life?
If I think a little less,
Or maybe a little more,
Does it change who I am at the core?
What’s to be done,
Is to be done,
If I stop seeking for the truth,
The truth may just find me.
What’s right and what’s wrong,
Is there a need to know?
I don’t need to know.
If I start living life,
Perhaps life will start living in me.

Another Year Older.

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.

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.

The Halo Effect.

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.


10th May.


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.
