Sunshine & the lane

Beneath the village sun, the cars stand still,Their occupants away, on errands gone.The houses slumber in the afternoon,Their windows shuttered from the heat’s strong yawn. A gentle breeze stirs through the leafy trees,Whispering tales of far-off lands and sweets.The sunbeams dance upon the dusty ground,Casting long shadows where no feet are found. A solitary figure…

A terrible day of MRT

After a decade past, on Taichung’s line,A day of dread, stars misalign.In MRT’s heart, beneath city’s bustle,An eerie event, set to rustle. A coincidence, strange and untold,In the rail’s depths, secrets unfold.A terrible day, etched in lore,Echoes of a time from before.

After quarantine, 25th Sept, 2022

Emerging from the shadows, a week confined,A soul unburdened, leaving isolation behind.The hotel doors open, a chapter ends,To the golden horizon, the path extends. Bathed in the glow of the setting sun,A moment of peace, the quarantine done.The world outside, once a distant dream,Now vibrant and real, in the evening’s gleam. Time to have some…

Traffic light, Taichung 2024

A Rural Idyll

Amidst the verdant fields, where crops sway tall,A humble house, with rustic charm, stands small.Nestled ‘neath trees, their branches reaching high,A symphony of nature, ‘neath the azure sky. The road, a ribbon, cuts through verdant land,Connecting lives, with an invisible hand.Vehicles traverse, with measured, gentle pace,Respecting nature’s tranquil, verdant space. Man and nature, in harmony…

Rustic red door / Porta rubra

Rustic red door, old and iron-wrought,In the countryside, long and deep shadows cast.A symbol of hope and of the past,A reminder of the future. Porta rubra, vetusta, et ferruginea,In agro sita, umbra longa et profunda.Symbolum spei et praeteriti,Futuri monimentum. Konica Minolta Vectis S-100 +  4.5-6.3/25-150 + Kodak Advantix HD 200(expired)
