Mr Z and Mdm I

I sense something
as they venture out
into the depth of forest.

Change Management

so they say,
the only thing that is constant is Change

there is exactness in what Heraclitus had said
and more so in business.

most changes are small
that come and go
and we capture and deal

You remember about Sabah talent management project
I mentioned to you?

That is really something
a new terrain altogether
and we scrutinize every little things
both depth and breadth

when we jump into the cold sea
there is no real surprise
in fact it is as we imagine

except I cant swim....

Oh, Lienn

I have been observing
how easy she swing
from left to right
as she draw with pencil,

after years being together
she had captured the essence
of  my different layering fa├žades.

She had seen
my tantrums in the office
shrieking like angry hawk
and back at home
quiet as  a lonely poet.

she maintains some distance
at the office as much as she can allow
within the boundary of business and professionalism
and she stays easy
as we get on with household chores
of this and that.

and I sense her acute observation
beyond that of little sister's friend
as she grabs both roles of being ummi and wife

I can also see
the slow disappearance of sadness
in her mood and eyes.

The quality that gives pleasure 
to the mind or senses 
is associated with such properties 
as harmony of 
form or color, 
excellence of artistry, 
and originality.

Market Penetration

it's about letting it be known..
to the masses
of it's worthiness
of it's uses
in the most strategic manner
as we create business opportunity
within the wilderness of consumerism

It's a wonder
how supply and demand work
in the new supply chain
of red and blue ocean.

The beauty of it all lies
within the subtlety
of persuasion

They go separate ways

and that is fate
that they figured marriage not working out
that they decided to go separate ways
leaving 2 lovely kids in the middle.

and you know all along
that most issues were left hanging
as they keep exchanging rebuttals
on  points as mundane as anything.

and you remembered
that she had to drive out 
to cool herself down and down
before she come back to home.

Then I assume afters years
of such bouts
scars were left clear and stark.

and they decided to go separate ways...

 and I pray for their happiness
and of course both you and I know
that you have a role to tie
on whatever connection left
at least for I and Z.

Measuring progress

Its our Lienn
as she grows bigger
as she learns the technique of expression
as she flexes her muscles
as she widens her vocabulary
as she increases her capacity

of words,
push and pull
charge and withdraw.

oh, how do I measure the constant change.

Eh, the fish.

The days of kelisa, the gentle swimmer is back.
It's not aquarium as birth place
in fact it's right from Tasik Merah
bought from the locals
where kelisa would be happiest
in their natural habitat.

It sooth my mood
as I sit healing the weariness
with romantic moves
and kelisa must understand by now
we are depending on one another
to connect days
to grease bonds
in togetherness.

Title:     The Young Mother's Vision
Author: Thomas Cowherd 

I saw a fair young mother sitting,
With a babe upon her knee;
Fast through 'er mind sweet thoughts were flitting--
So it did appeal to me.
Her eyes with fondest smiles were beaming
On that infant's lovely face;
She seemed upon the future dreaming,
And I tried her dream to trace.
While her face with love was glowing,
As her babe looked up and smiled;
Thus I sketched her numbers flowing
Freely forth unto her child:
"Charming boy, in beauty vieing
With the fairest rose I see;
This I need not be denying,
That thou dearer art to me.
"Whilst thou slept, I fell to musing
On thy present happy lot;
And thy future for thee choosing,
Soon all other thoughts forgot.
"Thus I chose at first to paint thee--
Growing up toward thy teens;
No corruption near to taint thee
Passing through thy boyish scenes.
"Then I traced out all the labor
Which I would bestow on thee,
That thou mightest grow in favor
With the Lord, as well as me.
"Next I viewed thy mind expanding,
With the best of knowledge stored:
Light divine, and understanding
Gained from God's most holy Word.
"Years flew by; thou wert approaching
Very near to man's estate,
And, to those, around, wert broaching
Thy deep thoughts, with soul elate!
"Again I saw thee; thou wert coming
To the heights of world-wide fame;
My fears arose, I saw ills looming,
And bid thee guard thy spotless name.
"I looked again, and found thee wooing
Damsel modest, rich and fair;
And wicked men sought thy undoing,
Ere thou wert the least aware.
"But, thanks to God! He did preserve thee--
Gave thee, too, a lovely wife;
For duty this afresh did nerve thee,
Struggling with the ills of life.
"Again the vision passed before me,
But some years had fled away;
Thou hadst been sick, the Lord restored thee--
Children were around at play.
"I saw thy wife and thee were growing
In sweetest chaste conjugal love;
To things of God attention showing,
Fitting you for bliss above.
"The curtain drops: thy smiles recall me
To discharge my duties right;
Rich mercies I enjoy console me
For the loss of Vision bright."

Endless Love.

The mum
the babies

Endless love, The mum. (credit: eg)

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

how do you feel?

how do you feel
coming home from work,

the little one would smile
and tease you in the way
you could never teach.

The laughter, the cry and the smile
will sum up the mood
and the bond.

and it slowly strengthen
the world of motherhood.

Top-down and Bottom-up, where do we balance the two.

I wouldn't dare to describe the two
in it's whiteness and blackness
and be precise at the same time
which on to use.

I would rather look at the two
as being dependant, very much inclusive
and the two exist in some sort of pendulum
being able to sway up and down
very cyclic, very harmonic.

There are times when things had to be very tight
it's a clear top-down manoeuvre
when the chance appear that requires immediate grab
when there is no seconds to be wasted.

And we fully understand about ideas coming from them
energizing their thinking skills and teamwork
creating some sort of loyalty
greasing the teamwork for better performance.

On hindsight, after years of involvement
where progress and profit matters
we do blend the two somehow
like  melody to the song
like rainbow on the sky

and the ability to switch and sway
over the two approaches
is very much experiential

My dear, their inclusive existence
is a matter of options
and we can never go wrong
if the awareness about potentials and pitfalls
is well rooted.

what's there to forget

we are the product of happenings
of yesterday and before yesterday
we are what we are today
over routes we had taken

If it wasn't due to yesterdays
we could have been someone else,
beyond our dream and measure
There's no telling what the eventual
going to be..

at a pace she enjoy
and her dreamy eyes
and her wondering mood
complete the setting

a pause longer than usual
will invite her little remarks
