Enter If You Dare...

Enter if you dare... Come, come for an utterly fright,
You'd meet the most terrible sight!
Look at my wicked glare,
Enter if you dare,
And beware, for something might bite!

No leprechaun could chase me away,
I would just hang on here and say,
"I'll gnaw on your brains,
and chew the remains."
All night on Halloween day!

Sublime Feline

Sidling around soundlessly
Whisper soft on pad-like feet.
Tail poised high and proud,
Fur well-groomed smart and neat.

Adroitly clambering on your lap
With the trustful, long, slow blink.
Showing gentle, ultimate feline's trust
Then pondering deep to think.

Of the secret wonders of the world
Hidden beyond and within.
Letting curiosity venture
To what is and what has been.

Pouncing playfully on the yarn,
Frolicsome and lively.
Tangled in the string?
Vivacious and sprightly.

As the sun begins to set,
The creature makes a final leap.
Stretching out with a meow,
The sublime feline falls asleep.

Yanni - Playing by heart

Does it work?

Look at what we are doing! BT and I can't stop laughing every time we do this, it's so fun, entertaining, and relaxing!

But does it really work as it claims??

That's the big question we're resolved to find out the answer in the next several months.

Worm Wonders

A worm never feels the rush of the world
As it silently, slowly inches by.
Its only single care,
on the land and in the air,
Is to escape feet and fishermen: at least try.

After the rain, the worms all come out,
Interfering with my hopscotch game.
So I sit and wonder instead,
"Which end is the head?
And which end is the tail? They're the same."

Sweet Iron

Blackstrap Molasses It looks muddy, or even muddier than Glorious Mud; but sweet, or even sweeter than honey; however, the most lovely merit of all - it's full of iron!

The number, 70% of iron, is incredibly adorable, isn't it?

Learning to Love

This is a poem I wrote about one of my favorite books, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by kate dicamillo. The book is about a china rabbit named Edward who was owned by a girl named Abilene. But one day, Edward finds himself lost, and he goes on an amazing but really touching journey. I love this book because it is really moving and it really shows how Edward felt during those times. His adventures really taught us what love is and shows us that the people in our lives, especially those who love us, are much more important than any objects or our looks.

I was loved by a girl named Abilene
She lived on Egypt Street.
She gave me fancy clothes to wear
From my head to my china feet.
At that time I may had been too proud
I cared too much for looks.
I insisted gowns, extravagant hats
In my wardrobe and on closet's hooks.

On a cruise I traveled out far to sea,
But sadly, oh, unlucky me!
I was dropped into the wild blue yonder,
How miserable and lonely!
I stayed where I couldn't see the stars,
I couldn't shed a tear.
I ached to see Abilene again,
Where was she? Far or near?

Luckily, I was soon salvaged
When I got caught in ocean foam.
A friendly fisherman adopted me,
Brought me to his home.
Somehow I got stuck in the trash,
And was whisked off to a pile
Of decomposing garbage,
Oh, how extremely vile!

I stayed for a while with a nomad
And his dog with many scars.
Then I was useful as a scarecrow,
Hung underneath the stars.
My clothes were ripped and torn by now,
But little did I care.
I looked up to the stars and asked,
Where am I? Tell me, where?

I was taken by a poor boy named Bryce
To his sister, Sarah Ruth.
She was ailing with a terrible cough
And held me to be soothed.
I knew that she had loved me,
From her eyes, I reckon.
But I saw that sweet yet helpless girl's
Soul rise up to the heaven.

I danced my heart out in Memphis,
Or "head" - it broke in a diner.
Lucicus Clarke fixed me though,
I survived with a fractured face.
But honestly, I couldn't care less,
I was done with being loved.
Quite forlorn and hopeless, I was
In the shop pushed and shoved.

Months passed, years passed,
I sat there still and silent.
But one day, a little girl came in,
Her voice sounded somewhat familiar.
I squinted closely at her mother,
My heart stirred and churned!
Guess who was that woman?
It was Abilene! To her I finally returned!
Now, I know what love is,
And I don't care for clothes whatsoever.
I am lucky to be loved again,
And I'll remember it forever!
