Miracle in late December


I saw this scene on my way back from yoga.
Hallelujah! Someone’s walking tall to the Christmas ball.

Here’s a year-end poem just because:


Waking up in 
a submarine

Waking up in a submarine,

. . . curtains of liquid glass . . .

I am the foetus dreaming

in the library, roseate

from illuminated texts,

my nubby arms conducting

squalls of rain, each drop

a globe encoded with spectra

. . . world upon world upon world

of naked minds being born

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
See you in 2011, say, around the later half of January. Ooroo!

    Mr Chong, do you think it was a Yoga student or one of dexter’s customers who had the epiphany? Pat

    Dear Halfmoon Man,
    As “epiphany” is related to Christianity, indeed to Christmas, perhaps it has nothing to do with Yoga, being Indian-Hindu-Buddhist. But Dexter, by which you might mean either the cafe, or the serial killer, doesn’t pertain either. Hoewever, epiphany is also understood as a divine manifestation, so perhaps it was a result of yoga practice after all. Merry xmas.

    I love that you do yoga. I’m not sure why… I just think it’s somehow fitting and a little bit humorous. :-)
