Oh, Beautiful Bird©

I was reviewing some of my old posts, and found this poem that I wrote way back on January 2008 and posted it on WordPress on January 2016. Looking forward for your comments.

Oh Beautiful Bird

On the perch

In the cold going out

For your little ones

In their nest

Waiting for food.

I can hear your happy

Songs, in spite of your

Struggle to find a scrub.

You’re jetty and gay

Skipping, turning your

Head every other way

With a happy flutter

Of your wings.

What made you so

Sure you’ll reach your

Goal, and find what

You’re looking for?

Is it Faith? Or is it

Sheer hope? Oh what

Make you so persistent

Never giving up your search?

Or is it the simple life instinct

That if you stay over

At your nest with fear

And idle notion,

That snow has covered All, your realistic view

Of things would be

The death of you,

Laying there with

Frozen Wings?!

So, here you are

Flying to every tree,

Trying every branch,

And even on the ground

Turning every leaf around

Never…

Overcoming Discrimination-Triumph of Human Will Power!©

Resilience and perseverance in the face of harsh adversity is the highest of human achievements.

The movie “Hidden Figures” powerfully demonstrates this concept.  The discrimination against people of color is an ugly stigma in the history of this country.  However, the achievements of black men and women of America, despite all obstacles and degradation, is a bright shiny mark in human history.discrimination.png

How horrible! Lack of compassion and empathy are traits of wild beasts not humans!

The Realm of The Soul!©

If your reality had come down crumbling

Once upon your head, your soul had to sour

Up and beyond.  All that you had are no longer

Yours.  Loves, dreams, and the life that you had,

Are gone.  All that was tangible has become untouchable-

Sort of illusion images floating in your head.  You have to depend

On the soul to sense its way around instead.  What a mystery?!

In that state of heightened sensory perception–Of time and space-

Infinite possibilities are born and created.  As long as You’re living,

There will be other realities, other friends, other memories to build,

Other laughs and cries, and other dreams to fulfill.

There, in the realm of the soul, hopes becomes crystal clear.

Let’s remember this in that time of utter

Despair of crushed reality, that your vision of what to come

Will lift you up, and You will be saved.

Aidan & the Kaleidoscope 2

Little Children coloring and making cards for Aidan and Ella-Full Time Islamic School

Aidan & The Kaleidoscope

Fellowship of Goodness

Somewhere in a valley in California, women from different faith groups, United Methodists, Catholics, Mormons, Jewish, and Muslims all got together to help each other in a very dynamic and unique fellowship-to spread love, care, and understanding in our communities.  The group cares for refugees, victims of cancer and their families, needy members of the community, widows and widowers group, make a wish for terminally ill seniors, and much more.  Every time we meet at the Interfaith meetings, or at the Kaleidoscope group, or to one of the sisters’ houses for shared dinner-there is enough love, compassion, and humanity to fill the whole world.

I am so proud to be one of them.  I pray that many communities around the nation and the whole world would  follow our example.

One of the projects was caring for Aidan and his little sister Ella.  He is a little boy undergoing a prolonged stay in the hospital for cancer treatment and needs a cheer.  We cannot forget about his little sister, lest she feels neglected.  I have asked you, my dear readers around the world in my last post to join in.

Aidan’s mom reported that Aidan was so happy receiving all those cards, and it really cheered him up and eased his agonizing long hospital stay.

Just because the world is full of chaos and perils, this doesn’t mean that goodness and cheerfulness cease to exist.  As long as we strive to be good and fair and just.. as long as we continue to seek the truth, as long as we believe in God and certain of His Justice and Compassion-Humanity is still good and there is still hope.

Aidan & The Kaleidoscope

Aidan & The Kaleidoscope

Aidan is a little boy with hope and a big smile.  He is going through an invasive cancer treatment in Kentucky, U.S.A.  I live way far in California.  I have heard about him and his little sister Ella through a great Cancer support group called The Kaleidoscope.  A compassionate group of people lead by a beautiful human being called Jan.  They have inspired me with their diligent and selfless  work to help support Cancer patients and their families.

The project is to cheer little Aidan through his ten weeks stay in the hospital undergoing his treatment-through sending him cards and stickers to cheer him up and boost his morale.  We don’t want to forget his little sister Ella by encouraging her and show her that she is so important as well.  Your act of kindness will go a long way to cheer a little boy, but most importantly it will go a long way of changing you and warms your heart.

I thought that since I have more than 1600 followers, we can all send a card of love, care, and support to a little child and his sister, the world will be truly a better place indeed.

Let’s do it!

It’s Gonna Be OK!©

It’s Gonna Be OK!©

These are not words to say

By lips, it’s a statement

I affirm to make it happen

By deeds and toiled actions-

A claimant.  In a country

Where citizens have rights

Things may go wrong, but

Eventually, it’s going to be

Alright.  After all, it was

said that : “the most important

Office in a democracy: Citizen.
