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
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

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...

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,
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.
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.

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.
