A place to mince words

a blindfolded shadow
I searched all over the four walls
while shining truth plays hide & seek
a vicious circle
armed with two hands of a clock
fate moves quietly

.. cold comfort ..
When the world we live in
... is slowly frozen ...
..... by the winter of our discontent
Do we pray and wait
... for some dispensation ...
... ... or miracles , heaven-sent ?
Or find some internal button to push
... that would generate ...
... ... real fervour and heat ?
Before the heart
... goes into a permanent ...
... ... irreversible hibernation retreat ?

PIG OUT ... ( Chinese New Year mirth)
Kiss the pig goodbye , to the rat : say hi ....
( Sharing some Chinese New Year mirth )
It's almost midnight, and all is well
Please listen carefully to what I have to tell
For this is the end-of-year story you shouldn't miss
It's time to give the year-of-the-pig a goodbye kiss !
All in all, it has been twelve months of ups and downs
As much fun as a ride on a merry-go-round
But don't forget, coming up is the year of the rat
We must decide for ourselves ..which way to skin the cat
Some want the theme of this year to be YOUNG and GREEN
Which is great if you're two, or twenty, or somewhere in between
Life is a long hot summer, firing the thirst of youth ...
A dream that goes on forever, constructing some mysterious truth
It can also drift like a boat along the current of a wild cool spring
Soaking up all the thrill and excitement that each day can bring
There can be drops and falls, there can be hurt and pain
But look carefully and you'll also find fun, pleasure, laughter and gain
The secret is you must always try to paddle your own canoe
And choose the right size of heels to fit on your shoes
Learn to walk as well as to run, and you'll never hobble
Eat a balanced diet, and the tummy won't wobble
Laughing too much is a sure way to go dizzy
Crying too long, and you won't remember how to be happy
The simple truth is: you are NOT who you think you are
There's a hidden driver in the front seat of your car !
Even if I want to let the cat out of the bag
You will only think I'm waving a silly red flag
Life is a drama to watch and see, but not to believe
Our eyes are two windows - with blinds - designed to deceive
So be sure to wipe them clean, at least once a year
Then whatever that may come, pigs or rats, you'll have no fear
Just drink plenty of orange juice, and celebrate
.... sing louder,
......... dance faster, and let your whole body vibrate ....
HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Not even a ripple
Is it really for nothing as we toil for our dreams ?
Is there no reason for my existence, as it all may seem ?
Except to know one day that
- a mere illusion ?
The shadow of a fleeting wave atop an ocean ?
