twists and turns
the
owl moon
born
with
a
set of wings
the
choice of kings
shall
drift across
the
river Jordan
and
all
i
need is a set of wings

when i was born
my mother said
it felt as if a new mathematical state had come into being
       new creature.
              new possibilities
              
when my grandfather died
my mother said
it felt the same- as she sat in that old room, his spirit slipping into a new form
       old creature
              new possibilities

it is so unfair
how the sky
is always beautiful
while my heart
is in pain

dear mom,
 Jan 1 m

i know you are trying as hard as you can
but stop to take a
breath
every once in a
while
promise me
you will take care of yourself
or at least try
to give as much
to yourself
as you do
to others

Dr Peter Lim
2020 speaks to 2019
behave properly
be responsible
serve humanity--

don't you dare
infect me with your calumny
I know you too well
you can't ever fool me!

ssssh, listen to the wind whispering through the trees
savor the sound of rustling, chiming leaves
let the stillness imbue you
surrender to the solitude, the quiet, the serenity

lay your head upon my lap
i’ll comb my fingers through your hair
feel the warmth of the evening sun
succumb to my love and kisses

I'd give it all up—
to write a poem
worthy of these stars.
