Today i'm thinking 'lemon', 'late', and 'television'

Sunday savvy -
i'm neither bird nor flower
i can wake up late

Lemon, a fruit popular for its therapeutic properties, helps maintain your immune system and thus, protects you from the clutches of most types of infections. It also plays the role of a blood purifier. Lemon is a fabulous antiseptic and lime-water juice also works wonders for people having heart problems, owing to its high potassium content. So, make it a part of your daily routine to drink a glass of warm lemon water in the morning and enjoy its health benefits.

PRETTY BUTTON

alone
fashioned for me -
fits so well

when dear old hubby
packed his bags to chase rainbows
i became moon glow

Our children grown
deign to clutter spaces theirs -
bird songs woo me

punctuated by
the grand baby's visit -
my alone-ness

today is adorned
pretty -
a button on my blouse

--gillena cox



Revisit
left alone...
...am alone
home alone...

...According to the "Anxi" theory, oolong tea had its origin in the Anxi oolong tea plant, which was discovered by a man named Sulong, Wulong, or Wuliang.

Another tale tells of a man named Wu Liang (later corrupted to Wu Long, or Oolong) who discovered oolong tea by accident when he was distracted by a deer after a hard day's tea-picking, and by the time he remembered to return to the tea it had already started to oxidize.

Soho London -
catching my fancy a bamboo
box of oolong

a small bamboo box
in a dimly lit store
one grey August day

grey days of August -
eventually sunshine
ah that Beatles song

song of museums
art and must have chinese tea -

1. Corpus Christi tidbit
...It’s been three years since Juan Jose Duenas jumped over dozens of babies to the cheers of thousands of spectators, but he remembers it as one of the high points of his life and considers it the fulfillment of a family legacy.
Following in the footsteps of his father and his grandfather, Jose Duenas volunteered for the lead role in El Colacho, an unusual religious festival held annually in this small Spanish village on the Feast of Corpus Christi.




2. A happy and holy Corpus Christi to all




3. Christi Corpus haiku

prayers of the faithful

Stayed at home, listened to all the splendid vibes coming from the St James Auditorium last night, the jazz night of this year's 'we beat' festival till a few minutes to midnight. Luv the fact that in addition to some of by local favourites, one of my foreign current favourites 'cause i'm happy' occurred twice; first as a vocal, and later as an instrumental,where the phi pan was featured.

night deepens -
over at the 'we beat'

lost in its magic
the sunset wrapped in thoughts
securely golden

gold gilts the sky
the kisadees find shelter
for the span of night

silhouettes weave
the night for dream seekers
loss of bird songs

solace found
fullness of cooling breezes
twinkling stars

to share a wish
one such falling star plunges
lost to fantasy

moon rays
fill spaces lost to mind sight
dreams filter in
