Live Well and Be Happy

Undoubtedly, 2020 had been a tumultuous year for all of us. For some, it could even be a year of sadness and loss. Loss of freedom, loss of stability, loss of jobs, and even loss of loved ones. As I'm writing this, the world is still battling hard with the pandemic. 

As we stepped into 2021, let's embrace Faith, Hope and Love. We will continue to learn new things, change and transform our lives to accommodate new ways of working, playing and living. Focus on family, health and the environment. Keep our mind and body active always. Besides family, remember that friends play an important role in our social and mental health. So, my friends, have a truly blessed new year. Whatever life throws at you; all this will pass.    

We still look forward to your content contribution. Be it written articles, poems, photographs, or activities that you wish to share, we will be pleased to publish them on AutumnLife. If you have read an interesting book, please contribute to our Book Corner. contributions@autumnlife.sg

Poetry Collection 2017 & Before by JNg

by JNg

 

Dance of Flamenco

Her lush body pulsating,
to the Iberian music
its rhythm fills the cave
Dance she must
As though it is the end

For the crowd in the tight surrounds
It is rare, it is exotic,
intense Spanish woman
Feet a-tapping, hearts a-thumping
In syncopated response

Captivated audience,
sipping sangria in a cave,
Is this real?
Don’t stop, we love it
An evening of sensuality
Breathless it is

To visit Spain
Is to embrace its color,
A must, olé!
Life is complete.

Granada, Nov 2017

 

Cyclists Pedal

Hawkers peddle
Ducks paddle
And
Cyclists pedal

And the last is not the
least
Because it is sweat,
and muscle, 
just like a beast

Narcissus

 

You are vain, said the
hyacinthus
to the narcissus
You can admire me,
I do not reek of perfume,
replied the narcissus

Together we celebrate spring
with the world,
both chorused in unison
And of course we are both
beautiful,
distinctively so,
A 2000 year old Chinese
tradition
In our resplendent pots of
antiquity

 Kallang River Rejuvenated

You are pointless
Said the triangle to the circle
No sir, replied the circle
Follow me, spinning on two
wheels
And behold, high above, you
Are over the bedlam of
Serangoon
And onto the serenity and
repose
Of Kallang River

Oh rippling brook, where is 
your sting
Oh raging river, where is your 
stink
Rain gardens, bioswales,
biotope
Have redressed all the harm
Inflicted on to you

A rejuvenated river, 
Is a home and playground
For young and old alike
The environment pristine and
The thinking on this
undertaking,
More valuable than silver and 
gold

Cyclist, 2017

 

Singapore’s Sorrow

Oh where are our Terrex Armour?
An enraged Middle Kingdom
Does not a calming situation make
Quietly, we lick our wounded pride
No one can fathom China’s wrath and opacity
The sun will rise again tomorrow
and
New lessons we learn each day
From the land of our ancient ancestors
