Sunset Snake

To sample haiku into one big magazine is not the way to treat haiku. it is like putting people into a concentration camp. you cannot really enjoy them. haiku has to be encountered each like a new friend on the street. They cannot come into your life like a noisy intruding crowd.

new day
the children in the school
waking me up

dont care about them - those who snigger about your cyber is nobody's business. if it is an addiction it is a healthy addiction...just dont spoil your eyesight or forget your meal and healthy relatonship with real people...that's all. the world can say what they like.

Hatred breeds confusion. Clear thinking and careful action can come only when the heart is free from hatred. The laws of God are eternal, lofty and deep. The man who is obedient to them will be happy and after death, will experience joy unsurpassable.
- a book of hinduism.

sunset snake
a luminous red slowly
devoured by night

beach holiday
the coconut trees dance
more wildly than us

sunday blues
adrift on the web
spun round the universe

pouch kangaroo
the dawn sun slowly crawls
over the mountain

With my news article and feature stories published in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore as early as the 80s, I am quite proud of my own writing achievement. So when this reporter friend said I dont know how to write news, the only thing I could do is laugh instead of show grievance. This reporter cannot get the facts in the office correct, how to do the outside?

There is not such a cradle of democracy upon the earth as the Free Public Library; this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration. ~Andrew Carnegie

beach walk
stress rides
the waves

harem idle hours
unveiling a part of herself
she holds so dear
Cameron Highlands Haiku:

Brinchang mossy forest
a past she holds onto still
gives her the shudders
