Will I get my wish seemingly
Of splendor as in the ‘White Christmas’ movie
Of strains of the nostalgic rendition of Crosby
Gripping my soul tenaciously
Stretched across the doorway invitingly
Markedly a symbol of love and fertility
Of red, yellow and green like berries
The mistletoe sprig rather sparingly
Nudging the hearts of the uncanny
Splashed of blind innocence truly
Radiant with dreams of romance invitingly
Would you care for a kiss my fair lady?
And Merry Christmas everybody!

Queen of hearts Mommy dear
Aren’t you lighting my life?
Smile a little, massage my pride
I’m all alone
Baby Jane trying my utmost
To be a Mom, to endure, restraint and refrain
But Mommy dear
A little baby me all alone, all forlorn
Extend to me,the sun, the moon, the high seas
I’m a little baby me
It’s for the whole world to see
Christmas around the corner
Satisfaction is my plea

Note: The brand name on the detergent box at the bottom of the picture was clearly seen as 'Ivorine' in the original photo ( but somewhat blurred here).
A Maid's Dilemma
Must I try another?
They seemed all the same
But Madam's lingerie
was all tattered
The previous one was bad
A repeat tryout again?

The Wondrous Twin Towers
Piercing through the sky
The Petronas Twin Towers
Pride of the nation
Still the tallest twin structure
Of strong glass and steel
A peek at beauty
Dominating the skyline
It’s awe unfulfilled
Wondrous blogosphere crowd
take a bee-line to
The exotic East
for Kuala Lumpur beckons
tourists, guests and all!
My bit for Tourism Malaysia

A White Christmas?
A wooden sled in hibernation
The weather should change I implored last summer
Longing for the fluffy white spray from heaven
My urging’s to roll and romp outdoor
It was tormenting to the young soul
Ever anticipating but blind to the seeing eye
Impatience reigned, the torture enhanced
Questions in my mind, bring me the snow, I did cry
When it did , it romped home wild
The highways were blocked,
The airplanes were grounded
and airports abandoned
The weather’s unleashed its fury
Floods, blizzards the cold at below twenty
The worst since in recent memory
It’ll soon end I'm hoping
A decent winter in the offing!

Given the run around, that’s bureaucracy
Given the nod, that’s matrimony
Given the millions, that’s alimony
Given the snubs, that’s Gaddafi
Given the Osama, that’s infamy
Given the escapades, that’s Woods and Rooney
Given the release that’s Aung San Suu Kyi
Given the late nights, that’s Berlusconi
Given the baldy, that’s Britney
Given the the Throne, Charles or Willie?
Given the current spell, it’s cold and snowy
Given the Top Hits, Jackson and Presley
Given the laughs, that’s Chaplin, Lewis and Carrey
Given the the 2 Koreas, it’s a flare-up and hostility
Given the strengths and tumble that’s the WWE
Given the long stretch, that’s Maddox and his cronies
Given the WikiLeaks , the Administration’s jittery
Given soccer’s wizardry, that’s Pele
Given Susan Boyle’s appearance, that’s discovery
Given the MU’s unbeaten run that’s Alex Fergie
Given the knock off Top of the Table , that’s Ancelotti and Chelsea
Given the youngest F1 Champ, Vettel , that’s at the Grand Prix Abu Dhabi
Given ever lasting beauty, that’s Liz Taylor or Jolie?
Given the Kung Fu Chops, that’s Bruce Lee
Given every high regards and respect, that’s Mandela and Gandhi
Given the hate that’s Hitler and Mussolini
Given the bubble , inflation risks, that’s the Global economy
Given the tears, govt defaults, that’s the euro-zone currency
Given the job that’s Obama and the Presidency
Given the slip, that’s democracy!

Dreaded London smog
Dark, wet, tunnel like, pitch-black
Left us all agog
Prancing low in the shadows
Are you not concerned?
Must stop, venture not
Eerie, frightful , hair on ends
Winter’s sneaking in!
Let me see the sun
Where is it in abundance ?
Langkawi , my friend!
