Poem – John Tiong Chunghoo

Physical pain has brought me to my knees this week. I know there are people out there who deal with physical pain on a daily basis. I cannot imagine the strength you are required to muster each day. Deep bow to you — may you find peaceful, pain-free moments today. May you TAKE GOOD CARE of yourself today.

The full moon was a sight to see … the following poem spoke to me today, as I reflected on watching the moon amidst pain last night.

The moon glows
in bright yellow

The moon takes in all my pain
to glow in bright yellow

The more the pain
the greater the strength of its glows

The moon comes a-calling
first peeping
through the window
then takes leave
from the sky
roll from the tree,
and over the window
to the table and to my bed circling softly round
comforting my head
taking in all my aches
encasing them all in her
round body
The more it take my torments
The brighter it becomes
till my pain is now
a bright great mesmerising moon, rolling, rowing
over my whole physique
a mom taking all care, bearing all sins
to make sure her child is in full ease

the moon, with each
throb of my pain
it increases in its brightness

the moon with each
throb of my pain
it increases in brightness

giving my life
a new lease of hope

taking away all my aches
