these treasures we collect throughout our life 

the ones we call friends 

come in various ways and part in various ways 

some start way back from childhood  

some start right from our peak youth 

some come only in middle age 

some may come way later in retirement 

how many varieties and levels and circles? 

some you have fun with 

some you trust your life with 

with some you share your thoughts 

with some you share your feelings 

some make you laugh 

then some make you cry 

some are in touch constantly  

some in touch regularly 

some friends are forever 

some far away but special nonetheless 

some longtime ones rarely connect 

some casual ones still the best sometimes 

some drift apart slowly overtime 

some you lose for various reasons 

some so-called friends you always wonder  

are they really friends? 

some can’t live without friends 

you end up losing only to prove you still live 

these treasures we collect throughout our life 

make life we call worthwhile

When Spring comes and winter leaves,

Oh, how refreshing – all it brings.

So long winter, see you later!

It’s time to take off that sweater.

Welcome green and multi colors!


Tulip buds and cherry blossoms,

Poppies, peonies, roses, lilacs.

Oh, what a joy – that’s no wonder,

When the Spring comes!


With drizzling rains and breezy winds

And the rainbow lit blue skies

Oh, what a pleasure to wander,

In the wet road with that mud smells.

It’s something to look for – always

When Spring comes!

This is written in Rondeau form.


A Rondeau is a French form of poetry that consists of 15 lines in 3 stanzas…a quintet, a quatrain, and a sestet. The rhyming form is as follows: aabba, aabR, aabbaR. The ‘R’ is a refrain, which consists of a phrase from the first line of the poem. All of the other lines are the same metrical length…8-10 syllables long.

The rondeau began as a lyric form in thirteenth-century France, popular among medieval court poets and musicians. Named after the French word for “round,” the rondeau is characterized by the repeating lines of the rentrement, or refrain, and the two rhyme sounds throughout. The form was originally a musical vehicle devoted to emotional subjects such as spiritual worship, courtship, romance, and the changing of seasons.

The rondeau’s form is not difficult to recognize: as it is known and practiced today, it is composed of fifteen lines, eight to ten syllables each, divided stanzaically into a quintet, a quatrain, and a sestet. The rentrement consists of the first few words or the entire first line of the first stanza, and it recurs as the last line of both the second and third stanzas. Two rhymes guide the music of the rondeau, whose rhyme scheme is as follows (R representing the refrain): aabba aabR aabbaR.

The challenge of writing a rondeau is finding an opening line worth repeating and choosing two rhyme sounds that offer enough word choices.

An example of a solemn rondeau is John McCrae’s wartime poem, “In Flanders Fields”.



After standing in the long line

Just when you get your turn you find

They ran out of that coffee

That you desperately want


After waiting so long in the bus stop

Finally your bus comes but doesn’t really

Stop by, since it’s already jam-packed

Now next one is in another hour


After having a root canal process

You bump into that long forgotten

Dessert place where you know your

Little piece of heaven lies


After researching again and again

You think you found your best bet and

Get that high tech laptop, only to find in

Six months, it’s not that high tech anymore


After giving so much thought

You put a lump of amount in that stock

Because you see it jumping solid rock

But then out of the blue it did somersault


Let’s do this –

Let’s start this year positive

Let’s make resolutions

Let’s try one by one

Let’s win some

Let’s loose some

Let’s have hope

Let’s have fun

Let’s try new things

Let’s master old habits

Let’s challenge ourselves

Let’s beat to the end

Let’s make new friends

Let’s cherish the old ones

Let’s get into trouble

Let’s learn a way out

Let’s practice patience

Let’s endure pressure

Let’s break free

Let’s go wild

Let’s spoil ourselves rotten

Let’s demand the world go around us

Let’s stop to think and rethink

Let’s not take anything for granted

Let’s aim for no-complains life

Let’s remember how lucky we are

Let’s forgive and forget

Let’s be content and grateful

Let’s be resolute now

Let’s do it again next year!


The trouble is..


The trouble is, we can’t think straight

When there’s either too much delight

Or may be too little to its right

Either way we’re doomed to be left


With no choice to make it correct

The trouble is, we can’t think straight

Be it an excited moment

Or you call it a sad instant


Why can’t we find a middle ground

One where we could settle down

The trouble is, we can’t think straight

Even when we know we’ve got to


The odds have always been there

And so were the keys to those too

Still why do we bump into this

The trouble is, we can’t think straight

Friendship Ethics


Friendship Ethics

Aristotle is one of the greatest early thinkers who set forth to a great many ethics to follow after.

His philosophy on friendship is one that always intrigues me, rather convinces me the best.

His theory begins with the premise that there are three main reasons why one person might like someone else. One might like someone because he is good, or because he is useful, or because he is pleasant. And so there are three bases for friendships, depending on which of these qualities binds friends together.

When two individuals recognize that the other person is someone of good character, and they spend time with each other, engaged in activities that exercise their virtues, then they form one kind of friendship. If they are equally virtuous, their friendship is perfect. – This is friendship based on virtue. This is a true and lasting friendship, necessary for self-knowledge…
