Awed By Her Splendor

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

the sun is to me
as the dog is
a delight

the moon is to me
as the cat is
an intellectual challenge

the first light of sun
blazing through copper sky
it's so comforting
to mind, heart and soul
harbinger of hope

the unrestrainable
friendliness of the dog
- it oozes with licks
and unstoppable wagging of tail -
first thing at morn
take the worries of the day away

he moon, the moon
its subtle lumininous light
of spiritual and intellecutal bearing
is like the cat
that orchestrates its every movement
in calculated steps
eyes dilating in half, crescent and full crystals
see how it prances like a ninja
when attacking its target
how it gently licks its paws and
legs after its hearty meal

to raise a clever child
get her to admire the moon
as it signs in and out of the sky
each day of the month
in crescent, half and full

inspired by

Awed by her splendor
stars near the lovely
moon cover their own
bright faces
when she
is roundest and lights
earth with her silver
