Canadian Geese at Mon Sheong Court, Richmond Hill

“Extremely successful at living in human-altered areas, Canada geese have proven able to establish breeding colonies in urban and cultivated areas, which provide food and few natural predators, and are well known as a common park species. Their success has led to them often being considered a pest species because of their depredation of crops and issues with their noise, droppings, aggressive territorial behavior, and habit of begging for food (caused by human hand feeding), especially in their introduced range.” ~~ wikipedia Continue reading

“Grandpa, are we Hakka’s?” Nancy asks as she greets Grandpa at the door.
“Yes, we are.” Grandpa answers.

Everyone Is A Poet

“Grandpa, do you write poems?” Nancy asks the minute she gets home from school.
“Well, I tried once, long ago, when I was in Grade 4, back in the old country.”
“That makes you a poet. I like to have your poem.’
“I do remember it well, because it is the only one. It has only two lines: ‘I like to be a cloud, Freely I float around,’”
“That’s great!” Nancy applauds. “I like it, Grandpa. We have a very special visitor in class today, a poet from India whom Mr. Shaw knows by correspondence. He recited many poems in Bengali. They sounded just like music. They are beautiful even when we did not understand the words.”

《狗的故事》: 攪笑打油詩二首 (71)

《狗的故事》

早前 Don Chan 寫了一首詩,月旦北韓領導人金正恩,我和何老師等看到笑不停口,更把原詩略作修改,嘲謔本年之年獸。

Don Chan 原詩:
中國一條狗,揾佢睇門口。
不嫌樣子衰,用作抗倭寇。
最怕養唔熟,亂咬唔鬆口。
一朝頂唔順,煮來送燒酒。

Chan Sui Man 修改版:
肥肥一條狗,揾佢睇門口。
不嫌樣子衰,最弊趕客走。
養極都唔熟,亂咬唔鬆口。
個個頂唔順,踢佢出門口。

Zen Life

“Grandpa, what is Zen wisdom?” Nancy asks in a state of doubt.
‘I guess Mr. Shaw talked about it today?” Grandpa responds, not knowing how to answer. He continues after a moment of thought: “It is a very big large topic. I live by it. But, I can’t explain it in simple terms. All I can say is that Zen is a state of mind which helps you to live in peace and happiness. May be you can tell me what Mr. Shaw had said? “

《新植花蔬七言句》 __ 余晃英 (61)

   

《新植花蔬七言句》

時屆仲春,買茶花及菜苗,以圓自種蔬菜及攬賞美色之願

風冷雨䨙四月天
且向花蔬討嬌姸
入植旋遭風雲襲
急撐帳蓬蓋頂頭
根淺土鬆難穩固
亦知呵護耗心神
花為人放責無貸
蔬果充得盤中飱
搏取生機自然理
人對花蔬兩健嬈

余晃英
二〇一八年四月十七日
溫哥華
