NaPoWriMo Poem #30: The End

NaPoWriMo, NaPoWriMo,
We’ve reached the end,
No more dateline to meet,
It’s time to rest my hands.

Despite the relief,
There is sadness too,
The thought of no more challenge,
Makes me feel blue.

It is alright,
For we’ll meet again,
April two thousand sixteen,
Either shine or rain!

NaPoWriMo Poem#29: The Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge,
So red, so beautiful,
To cross the bridge,
It’s wonderful!

A hundred thousand cars,
Cross each day,
But it remains beautiful,
Until today.

The iconic bridge,
Glimmering in the sun,
To cross it again, 
Will be so much fun!

NaPoWriMo Poem #28: The Fruit Hay(na)ku

Tomatoes,
Red, ripping,
On it’s tree.

Strawberries,
Sweet, juicy,
I love them!

Durian,
Very soft,
Tastes so good.

Nutritious,
Healthy fruits,
Good for us!

NaPoWriMo Poem #27: I Love My Earth

I want to go to space,
But I have no rocket ship,
I want to fly with the stars,
But could I fly that far?

I want to live on the moon,
But I’ll miss my toys,
I want to jump in Jupiter,
But in space all I do is shiver.

The moon or the space,
May not be my home,
My Earth is the best,
I should feel blessed.

NaPoWriMo Poem #26: What Will My Poem Be About?

April … April,
A busy month indeed,
30 poems to write,
No time to pick up weeds.

Only four days to go,
Four more poems to write,
What will it be about?
My paper’s blank white.

Today is a hard,
I don’t know what to write,
Ah, now I’ve written something,
My paper’s no more white!

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hits Kathmandu, Nepal, on Saturday killing nearly 2000 people.

More than 700 people died in Kathmandu alone.

The Saturday earthquake was the worst earthquake in Nepal since the 1934 earthquake that killed about 8500 people.

The death toll from the earthquake might rise as the situation in the remote area is unclear because those places are either cut off or hard to access.

The earthquake sparked avalanches in the Mount Everest that killed at least seventeen people; which is the mountain’s worst disaster.

A strong aftershock with a magnitude of 6.7, centred 60km (40 miles) east of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu on Sunday sending people running for open ground in the city.

Here are some photos of the aftermath…

NaPoWriMo Poem #25: An Eagle and Me

An Eagle and Me is a parody based on a famous poem, ‘A Bird came down the Walk’ by Emily Dickinson, 18301886. Please click here for the poem.

A eagle, came down the walk –
And he knew what I saw –
I saw a piece of fish,
And the fellow dropped his jaw,

We raced towards the fish,
On a convenient Grass –
And then hopped sidewise to the tree
To let a Beetle pass –

He looked at me with his rapid eyes,
To find a way to trick me –
He ran into my lane,
I turned left and hit a tree –

I’m in danger, Cautious,
I offered him a Crumb,
And tried to run,
“Ouch”, I hit a bump –
