The sun’s golden hues
Illuminate the ocean
Reminiscing the journey
Glows peaceful and smiles, at peace.
The sun’s golden hues
Today I didn’t make any pics
While I was spending time with
Fam and having a simple meal, just
Like the good ol’ days when
Privacy was still valued
Conversations were audible
And time slowly spent gazing
Truly into their eyes.
Merry Christmas. 😉
Wishing one and all a Christmas filled with warmth and inspiration.

The train doors slid open with a mechanical sweep and she stepped in amongst the other passengers.
Always, she is plugged into her earphones and always, she prefers to lean against the glass panel at the doorway.
The doors remained gaping as the last human trickles filtered in, as he did, through the very doorway she had entered.
Like her, he chose to lean against the glass panel at the doorway, right across from her.
Instinctively, she looked up in the same instance that he did.
Their eyes met.
And they held each other for a few moments.
And in those few moments, her mind was darting through her memories to recognise his face, as he too seemed to be doing.
A sense of wonderment surged through and made her hold up a hand to her mouth in delighted astonishment; across from her, amazement shone from his eyes as a smile crept onto his face, and he came towards her.
To quote him, a serendipitous encounter as such is a magnificent Christmas gift.
And it is. 🙂
A rainy evening it was as I made my way towards the exit of the establishment with my lady friend. Within stranger’s proximity, he too was walking in the same direction with his companions.
Our separate quiet chatters seemed to entwine in the cool evening air as we convened towards the door, and with passer-by’s intuition we slowed down to allow his group to pass.
While they did, he stopped a distance behind them, doing the same thing we did.
I glanced in his direction and gave him a smile.
He gave a nod as a grin upturned his wrinkled mouth and his eyes caught mine and twinkled in his aged face.
”You’re welcome, madam.”
Chivalry never grows old.
Serendipity falls on a
Rainy day, when I found him
Secluded, quite hidden away
I don’t think we’ve met
No, we haven’t – yet
So I stayed and discovered
Him, of exceptional taste
When we parted I prayed
We would meet again with haste.
