This collection bears my sonnet compilation in the past years. It is based on my personal experiences, observation and summation of everyday life.



Poetry has its amazing beauty that conveys meaning in a creative way. It has always been my way of expressing my thoughts and emotions towards certain things that affect me everyday.


Few years of staying at home as fulltime housewife made me write. I’m not saying I’m good because I’m not. I haven’t tried publishing my writings before. But this first try might give me chance to see if I have future with it.



I will appreciate it very much if someone would read my sonnets and comment about it. I’d be happy to know if you could at least find a poem that you would like in this collection.

The cover picture was taken during the sunset in the beautiful, little island where I live.

The Sunset

Your bright face sinks in the wide horizon
Signalled the end of the day’s dominion
The tips of your rays painted the clouds in the sky
You display the magnificent colours up on high
Nothing can dim your beauty, my setting sun
You dictate the world that another day is gone
The twilight is your way of saying goodnight
Allow the people to rest and sleep tight
Go then dear, light up the other side of the world
Shed your power of life to behold
The darkened sky is your way of saying goodbye
Worry not for tomorrow never dies
See you again for another day
Seal it with a kiss of your astonishing beauty.

Scarlet Rose

Oh, Scarlet Rose, let not your beauty be faded away
Hold it still ‘til the wind and rain moved to the sea
Preserve a little fragrance for a brand new day
Kiss the morning dew that freshen you up from agony
Entangle not yourself from new bloom rivalries
Make your petals fall in long lasting series
Yield your brilliant colour with the gentle touch of the sun
Shine enticingly to turn the head of every man
Deliver your relinquished stance with pride and honour
Pity the bee that knocks into your door
Sharpen your thorns as shield from the trespassers
Defend yourself instantly and heighten your gears
Fear not! Your protector will come to the rescue
Love him in return for he is true.

The Blow

The fierce wind strikes wildly on trees
Whistle and hustle like a giant on his knees
Blowing his might that forced the leaves to fall
Shaking its balance of standing strong and tall
The bananas surrendered easily lying flat on the ground
The papayas desperately fell without a sound
The avocados fought and tried to stand still
Letting the fruits go shattered on the soil
The guavas swayed like a swing in the air
A toughie to break the branches that care
The wisest of all, come the bamboo
Blow from the left, blow from the right yet still on the go
Delighted on the creaking and the rocking of its body
Lived the moment that is hated by his company.

Greatest Love

Dare not test the mother’s love
The confounded treasures of the world, she can grab
She hesitates not picking up the stars for her child
Even try to fight the ferocious beast that is so wild
She can move the tall mountains to protect her son
Knock down the mighty warriors in a blow of a hand
She can dry up the sea to pave the way
To remove obstacles for his smoothen journey
She can conquer the powerful nations to rule as Queen of one
Make her beloved offspring the sole Prince of her land
She can wage multiple wars if anyone tried to harm
Leaving no trace of regret to unveil her unmatched charm
She’s willing to give up her life for his son’s happiness
The unconditional love that no one can replace.

Little Hero

He is an ordinary little man
Unluckily poor, uneducated and no conquered land
Stumbled in the dark aspect of married life
Betrayed and hurt by his beloved wife
Left all alone feeling cold in vain
Forced to bear the cries of five crying children
Tempted to end life, the ultimate escape
Brushed the thought aside, just went back to sleep
Woke up in the morning with a smile of courage
Held the children’s hands as if building a tough bridge
Promised to live on life whatever it brings
There’s hope deep down in the heart that still rings
He’s one of a kind-hearted and loving father
Able to fill in the pillar, that is missing forever.

Just Lost

Tears threatened to fall from heavy eyes
Swallowed hardly to prevent the persistent cries
Locked away in the world of promised happiness
Sooner discovered her life in the dire mess
She posed to continue whatever it takes
The young dream floated like snowflakes
Landed on the land of unworthy man
Trampled and exposed to the fiery sun
Bitterness yield but bears it all
The years that passed had her fall
She lived the breath whatever it has left
Turned her eyes away from the tempted cliff
She learned to control the bile back to its place
Pasted a smile to conceal the trace.

Turtle Friend

Hey, little guy, where are you heading?
Is it to the warm wide sea or to the nice spring?
It could take a day or two with your speed
Endurance and perseverance surely you have indeed
Listen not to others’ destructive mockery
Just walk with willing heart even slowly
Hide under your back when harm attempted you
Stop and smile when they pass and say adieu
Just let them laugh at you for their greatness
Be discouraged not, for you are also blessed
You always reach your goal even to the far end
Many admired your courage, my dear little friend
You’re always get rewarded for the hard earned journey
Be happy, not everybody can be this lucky.

Blue Sky

The birds freely flying up high
Into the arms of the wide blue sky
Cirrus passed by, blown by the wind
Given no chance with his buddies to trigger rain
He paved a way for a beautiful day
Children running around love to play
Your clandestine beauty warmth the cold soul
Give peace and solitude every time we fall
Your undaunted mighty and your splendour
Has opened window to every close door
Your vastness of yonder gives hope to lonely people
Surround the inhabitants of earth so tall
Your endless magnificent colour of blue
A gesture of flickered light to start life anew.
