A poem (of sorts) on marriage

When a man gives a women a diamond ring, he is giving her his heart, in the shape of a diamond, for her safekeeping.

The women accepts the responsibility to reflect his light with the diamond given. She is the guardian of his heart, shining...

A poem on surrendering our ambition to the flow of life. I heard David Whyte's voice while writing this poem, which is why some prose sound similar to how he recites his poetry. 

Your great mistake, your great mistake

Is to assume that sweet grapes will co...

A poem on finding joy and wonder in beginner's mind

Joy illuminates from love

There is no need to search for it

For the undercurrent of love is always present within

Life force fuels my beating heart

Breath rejuvenates my body

Love lives within my soul

Joy is who I am

The dire...

A poem about finding balance in striving

We are constantly seeking peak experiences

One peak to be higher than the next peak

We push to reach our full potential

To be constantly pushing our frontier

We fall sick, sometimes from exhaustion

And wonder how we can pull back

Shoul...

This poem is inspired by my boyfriend, who said that I look like a tigress. 

A scared bunny,

Cute and fuzzy as can be,

Innocent and pure,

Hopping from place to place, person to person,

Bringing joy and cheer to others,

Living unaware of its power.

From the outside, the bunny’...

Be happy with less.

A life of abundance - 

Is about abundance within,

Not abundance in the exterior world.

No need for being available for everyone,

No need for making sure everyone is happy with me,

No need for stocking my fridge and pantry with excess,

No need to plan my ca...

Step forward.

Don't tell me you are tired,

Don't tell me it's too dark,

Don't tell me the moonlight doesn't light your path,

Step forward.

You may feel the trembling of the ground underneath you,

You may hear foxes rumbling to ambush you,

Rocks may be thrown at you,

You may ge...

After a catching up with a long-time friend, and later being in a place of inspiration for me – which happens to be Disneyland, this poem came to me.

First come the weddings, then come the children and divorces.

Through it all, I’m a by-stander.

Always there as a friend,

When you found the right partner,

You found the buddha in you.

When you found the right partner,

He sees right through you.

There is no where to hide,

There is no need to hide,

For his love is the love of gods.

He sees the Buddha in you;

You see the Buddha in him.

Together you...

A poem inspired by a short love story between a great man and I. Choosing to love is easy, but falling in love is not a choice.

Two swimmers wanted to swim in the pool.

Swimmer one is me; Swimmer two is you.

I jumped in the shallow end – cautious like a bunny;

You jumped i...

I wrote this poem, about six weeks after seeing my therapist, feeling more empowered by knowing who I am.

I never dreamed of becoming a hero.

Never dreamed of becoming a doctor, a fireman, or an astronaut.

The closest I came to dreaming – was the dream of becomi...

This poem was inspired by my therapist’s analogy that my life is currently in winter season, and that my task for the week is to “do nothing”.

When life is winter,

We hold on to fallen leaves.

Reminiscing the Autumn,

Before white took our trees.

We wait and wait,

Like an eag...

I wrote my first poem, one week after a break up.

He is a Kite,

Flying high in the sky,

Attached gently to a reel.

The reel is his home.

When the sky is too crowded with other kites,

When the sky is cloudy,

When the sky is torrential,

He yearns for the reel to bring him home.

W...
