Tian Tan Buddha

Serene majesty rests atop lotus flower throne.His bronze eleganceadorns the Lantau sky.
Facing Northa mountain peakon earthly groundthe temple of heaven.
Right hand raisedaffliction begone!Left hand resta gesture of giving.
Serene in statureoverseer of peaceworshipped by mortalsand immortals bearing fruit.
A massive stone symbolhuman of spiritenergy of lifethey offer praise.
Climbing step after stepwarmed by his smilecaptivated by his eyeshumbled by his presence.
A hypnotic fog emanates around himas visitors encircle and offer prayers.
Hours entrancedin a spiritual kinshipwith him, tranquilityoccupies my spirit.

Christmas Memories

The December cold
warms me
when I reminisce
year after year
our painting memories
on the quiet canvas
of the Winter snow

Jazz Climax ~ For Sony Holland

Jazz Climax - For Sony Holland

The room hauntingly still
with mosaic tiles staring down
upon the audience.
Pink and red lights glare
like the eye of a storm
pouncing across the stage.
Lights dim and the music begins.
Ebony and ivory notes
meld with the pounding crescendo of drums.
Hot sax man plays it high and low
while the bass hovers
a musical fog.

And the introduction!
Thunderous applause
echoes while the star
rises to the occasion.
To the nines,
dressed Out Of This World
and the spotlight dull
in comparison to her beauty.
Her voice soft,
smooth velvet whispers
shower the room
in vocal elegance.
Lyrical reverberations
echo beyond the stage
and the room full
with sultry innocence
the sass and class monogamy.
Piano man sets the tone
tickling each key
to perfection.

At Last!
As the song goes…
Sensual bluesy rhythms
fuel the senses
with hot anticipation
while the audience swoons
in wild adulation
as rhythmic beats
rise and heighten
to a point of no return –
the jazz climax.
And she take…


Greet the day
Serene in essence
Clothed in light
Warmed in heart
Bound in spirit


Seagulls At Night

A twilight canvas
barren of light
prelude to the masterpiece
hovers unseen
upon desolate skies
waiting to be fashioned.

Out of darkness
they emerge
white winged choreographers
painting circles
and breeding life.

Seagulls at Night soar
a free form phenomenon.

Aquatic Wanderlust

Dancing waves
ebb and flow
to nature's percussion
as I silently
become entranced
in aqueous vibrato
pulsating gently
softly caressing
nocturnal rhythms.


At dusk
a quiet silence rests
over the fading sunset
shadowed by auburn hues.

Darkness awakens
like a whisper
with ease
embracing the horizon.

The moon
takes place
among the stars
on a higher domain.

Until dawn
the quiet passes
with solace
and solemn regard.

Red Lanterns

Red Lanterns

Oh, how they kiss the winds
With a cultural embrace.
A harmonious balance
Alights the promenade
Feng Shui.
An escape to tradition
A journey of peace
And silent affirmation.
The cleansing of spirit and home,
Red Lanterns
Await the dawn
Of the Lunar New Year.
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
