Time to PONDer

pond
I have always been fascinated
by ponds – big, medium or small. 
Some are natural,  others may come
with lovely sculptures or refreshing fountains.
But, my favourite is the pond that has healthy
well-fed Koi swimming in it.
I visited a Catholic church recently and
I was delighted to see a beautiful pond
with a statue of Jesus Christ.
And when I took a closer look
I was thrilled to see a group of energetic
Koi swimming in the pond.
Just watching the Koi makes me glad.
I feel peace within and at the same time intrigued 
by these amazing Koi, for they embody  
a  kind of quiet beauty and mystery.
And I can’t help but ponder
on the importance of
love, unity, and friendship.

Why, Lord? – NBC

prayer3
“Why, Lord?” I cried
when I heard about the massacre
in Las Vegas that night.
I recall the last such incident
that I prayed and wished
it would be the last.
Why did this lone gunman kill 
all those innocent people?
Was it because of too much hatred
and lack of love?
Was he distraught, brainwashed
or think he can play God?
But who am I to question you, Lord.
For your thoughts are not my thoughts.
I pray that you’ll comfort
the families that are grieving,
those who got hurt and need speedy healing.
I plead for you to stir and awaken
the hearts of those in power
to make it a little harder for
 a reckless man like him
to gun down people.
May we who feel so powerless
continue to stand strong in unity 
and do our small part
to make this world a safer
and better place to live.

It was not love at first sight and
I’m not quite sure how it all started.
I remember I like you
more and more each passing day
being the dreamy girl that I was.
The kind of feeling
that was hard to explain.
I knew it was love and
that you felt the same way too.
Many said it’s just infatuation
I would  forget you soon.
But why do I have the same strong emotion 
deep within me still?
Perhaps we were too young then 
to think about falling in love.
For the years ahead were uncertain,
our circumstances so different.
Many things we left unspoken and
we  just drifted apart
like a message in a bottle
floating in the sea.
If I’m granted a wish today
I wish for an hour with you
to tell you how I felt
how much I love you
how I had missed you.
And before I go
I will wish you well and
say goodbye.
