In the Dumps

foggy afternoon
it has been raining all day
chasing me around
sunshine, make a scene promptly
and be my conservator

Branches and Bones

A new way was paved;
The living paid their dues,
Money they gave,
And our lives too.

We were just weeds,
Pulled from our roots,
The cause of sweat beads,
Off of their youth.

Whatโ€™s another five,
Or seven of us?
When thousands of lives,
Could easily pass?

I only wish they took me,
Along with my brothers.
Whatโ€™s a lonely tree,
Without any others?

What can one alone,
Do more for the rest?
For branch or for bone,
What can one get?

Botanic Gardens of Singapore

Someone, I know says, “Why bother with nature when you are surrounded by it already?”

Our reasons differ from each other, it depends on the person.ย  As for me, it feels good roaming around, inhaling fresh air, sounds of birds that ring my ears, and most of all, the quietness make me at peace like something like this..

While strolling around, stop and follow your curiosity for something educational.

The playground of squirrels that were aloof and hide when they see people.

After enjoying the long walk, we stopped by in a certain restaurant called, The Halias for our breakfast. Four sets of this for SGD61.

I knew my Mom loves plants and flowers so I bought entrance tickets for SGD5 each and SGD1 each for seniors.

And the rest was amazing!

Look at those faces, we are all living in the mountains, yet we still appreciate nature.ย  That is the benefit of mountain living, a healthier and happier life.
