How a single ray of light
slips through a thicket
setting a leafy row ablaze

How the Kingfisher’s trill
echoes off silken waters

How our love remains despite
the ills that pursue us …

Glorious mystery.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Dear VJ,

    What a lovely, heart-warming and thoughtful poem!

    That “love remains despite the ills that pursue us” may not be a “Glorious mystery” after all when there is chemistry there, when love conquers all, or when all you need is love, as the fab four claimed.

    Yours sincerely,

      1. Dear VJ,

        You are very welcome! Thank you for your reply. I have just added even more graphics and animations to my recently published festive post entitled “🎊 Season’s Greetings: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year 🎄🎅☃️“. In addition, please turn on your finest speakers or headphones, as the post will be playing music to you automatically for about two minutes.

        I hope that you will thoroughly enjoy the animations featured at my said post, and would be delighted if you could be so kind as to submit a comment there as a token of your visit and/or as a critique of what I have done with the post. Thank you in anticipation.

        Numerous visitors to my blog have been able to peruse my posts and pages without a hitch. My suggestion is that when you pay my blog a visit, it is preferrable to use a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen to view the rich multimedia contents available for heightening your multisensory enjoyment at my blog, which could be too powerful and feature-rich for iPad, iPhone, tablet or other portable devices to handle properly or adequately.

        Furthermore, since my intricate blog contains advanced styling and multimedia components plus animations, it is advisable to avoid viewing the contents of my blog using the WordPress Reader, which cannot show many of the advanced features and animations in my posts and pages. It is best to read the posts and pages directly in my blog so that you will be able to savour and relish all of the refined and glorious details. May you enjoy browsing my blog at this festive season!

        Yours sincerely,


  2. “Glorious Mystery” ✨🔥👑 Your poetry is everything VJ. Thank you for opening your heart and soul to all of us. I also write poetry. Since I was 14. One day I will share publicly. Your work gives me the courage to do so. One Day!
