On Rainbow's End

Image result for free image of a rainbow
Of a rainbow did I once venture
Taking a ride on its majestic color
The blue mingled with a distant tremor
Of darkened clouds at the end of its tether

It rained a few minutes before the spring of summer
The sun hidden within tear filled clouds of wonder
Watching from a distance I saw it form colors
On Rainbow's End appeared the stature

Of a Rock that stood witness to this creation of stunning color
O how does it adorn the sky with wonder
I see its shape and gasp at its gorgeous splendor
There is no beauty that can match its rapture
Maybe that's why it appears in the sky where none can capture...

A Letter copied to me received from the "Back To The Future" Star - Michael J.Fox. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is helping to spearhead research collaborations to treat, cure and prevent brain diseases like Parkinson's. It would be great to have everyone involved in this project to eliminate neurological diseases that rip the worlds apart of Great Stars like Michael J. Fox and anyone who is besieged with the diseases associated with it. No-one should suffer the consequences of this disastrous disease.
God bless the Michael J.Fox Foundation and their projects towards this cause - shobana
To : Shobana Gomes

We’ve come a long way since 1985.

When Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled 30 years into the future, we could only imagine the innovations we take for granted today -- new ideas and technologies that have completely changed the way we live, learn, and work.
Back then, if you’d have told me that I’d go from talking on a cell phone to talking cell biology, I would never have believed you. But today, The Michael J. Fox Foundation is helping to spearhead research collaborations to speed a future in which we can treat, cure, and even prevent brain diseases like Parkinson's.
So what’s possible in another 30 years? Call me an optimist, but I believe that by 2045 we’ll find the cures we seek -- especially because of all the smart, passionate people working to make it happen. Doctors and researchers around the world are developing new tools to improve the diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases, to tailor treatments -- for all illnesses -- through precision medicine, and to make life better for millions of people. This truly is the stuff of the future.
Today, on “Back to the Future Day,” I challenge you to imagine the world you want to live in thirty years from now. The White House is hosting a series of online conversations with innovators across the country all day long. Check it out and add your voice here.
We can't all be brain scientists, but all of us can get involved. One reason Parkinson’s research has come so far in the past 15 years is that people and families living with the disease have stepped up as advocates and innovators themselves, working to build the future we all want.
Together, we’ll make neurological illness a thing of the past.
And if we all eventually get hoverboards, well -- that's a bonus.
--Michael J. Fox

The Frenchman and His Lady

Image result for free image of a french man and a lady



I took a walk in Paris one night
And watched the lovers there charm the sights

I watched a Frenchman and his lady love
They kissed with hot love and their passion oozed
As they gazed into each other's eyes
I could see that they were oblivious to the world that stares

He got on his knees with a rose in hand
And proposed to her with a tender heart
She looked him from the height of her stilettos
Her racing heart I hear from as far as the stars

I guess it was a liason-french 
A two-some passion that showed each love
A yes it was to the man who dared
To set her heart race with astounding speed

Ah, the French they love their women with fervor
They speak the language of romance for sure
Their passion is much sought after
One day I shall have me Frenchman as a lover...

A Lone Bloom With A Prominent Red

Image result for free image of a daisy

The bloom of a daisy just attracts
A lone bloom with a prominent red
On a leaf fallen ground
It astounds with its charm
And smiles in its sun lit way

Have you met a lass who is worthy of its grace
To be given as a love offering
Its a color of love
Its a sentiment of life
And its works its magic on a magical spring day

Dance in its time
Before it withers and lie
Just like the heap of the fallen leaves..
Oh to touch the heart of a lass so loved
by its magic on a spring day

With the gift of right keychain

Image result for free image of a keychain

Have you felt sometimes that you are at the end of a key chain?
Your life knotted in chains..
There are options to a diamond crusted survival
With gemstones lining its way

Have you felt sometimes that the key remains elusive
To open the right door to fame
Where riches await and the glory aloof
All it takes is the right key to open the chain

The gate of the elusive terrain
Where the roads are paved with gold and a million primal stones
And the right to pick one
Of the elusive dream and be adorned
With the gift of the right key to the chain..

The Miracle of Our Lady Of Lourdes


The Parish of St. Thomas More in Subang Jaya recently built a grotto of Our Lady Of Lourdes in adoration to the beautiful Virgin Mother. It was a beautiful structure and the serenity of its divinity felt and seen by the worshipers.

The month of October being the month of devotion to Our Lady where the rosary is recited everyday, it was with much significance that on the 7th of October, the eyes of the sacred statue moved slowly to the left, then to the right and her eyes started to well up. The prayerful there quickly started saying the rosary and just as they were singing the Ave Maria, she smiled.The Parish Priest who was with the parishioners  there got a message from Our Lady saying that there will be more with her presence. (miracles).

Miracles are happening everyday in our lives and to hope in miracles is something I do each morning when I wake up. The moment I say my rosary I am energized and determined to move forward with my day no matter what challenges await me. When there is hope, where there is faith, there is bound to be miracles and Let's pray for peace in this world torn apart by discord - shobana

When We Dance

The softness of the evening turns to night
Dusk bringing in soulful nights
From the stars aligned for Love

We sit staring into eyes
Outside the street lights shine so bright
Our Eyes hold the promises of hushed love

In the background the music plays a love song
That unites hearts and minds of lovers
Our favorite song comes on and we alight

You take my hand and we walk to the dance floor
I lay my head on the softness of your shoulders
And we move to the rhythm of the music

As we waltz, the stage comes alive with lovers
Our dance of love makes music of our love
The music fades and the lovers disappear

When we dance, its just you and I...

The Beauty of The Red Rose

Image result for free image of a red rose

I know how fragile your petals feel
while exuding such beauty that consumes
I know you bask in the wisdom of your thorns
That surround your stalk to protect you from harm

Life is so much like the red rose that haunts
The eye of the beholder very much intoxicated with love
The fragility sometimes betrays the strength of each day
Only chanced hope remains to see it through

The only other thing that can be construed
Is that each day that life is we can be sure to marvel its beauteous attribute
And live like the petals of the red rose that blooms
Bringing beauty and love to the passers of its way

Of a Horse Back Ride On a Seaside of Dreams

Image result for free image of a man on a horse

Have you ever been horse back riding?
Chasing wind it is..
The speed of it  -exhilarating!
A sense of freedom some may say accomplished..

Have you ever felt the rush of its excitement
Taking a breathtaking view for its landscape
Just you and the lover of you

There is no need for talk when you are challenging the winds
The captive is yours when you reach your destination
No obstruction to the joy of the trophy
When you ride free and inhibited

Freedom at its best
The wind chasing speed
Of a horse back ride on a seaside of dreams...

Sunset Silhouette

Image result for free image of a sunset
I don't know if you have ever seen a sunset
The way I have - many times before
Either going down a mountain or
by the outline of the sea
I always wondered why the colors blend
Bringing on dusk with a different view
Dusk being the entrance to another time zone.
I wondered if the earth wasn't a circle but a square, if I could just walk towards the sunset
And touch it before it goes down
Somewhere below in the earth's hemisphere
And I imagine that from where you stand
You would see the outline of a shadow which would be me and I would be known
By painters as the Sunset Silhouette.
