Sleigh Bells Ring, Are You Listening

Sleigh Bells Ring, are You Listening – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I see the christmas lights and hear the yuletide carols.  I remember hiding under the mistletoe. The yesteryears of waiting for santa, expecting a gift eventhough i’ve been naughty, not nice.

I opened the beautifully wrapped gifts.  In excitement i ignore the intricate wrappings. I barely acknowledge the efforts taken in covering the precious presents. Sometimes i forget to give thanks not just for the gifts but for its beautiful wrappings.

Oh, christmas is just around the corner.  A time to be jolly and sleigh rides.  But what happens when Santa’s reindeers are missing because their antlers are used for decorating?  And yes when the sleigh bells started ringing, are you really listening or just hearing?

Although i admit i don’t live in winter wonderland, it doesn’t mean i can’t feel the cold snow and its breeze. But the happy lights of yuletide lanterns and strangers’ smiling faces can make me say,  indeed it’s a beautiful happy sight.

One need  not wait for christmas day,  loving and sharing is not just for a day.  It’s all year through for someone with a giving and grateful heart.   But every year,  i don’t know why i am more kind,  when the christmas bells are starting to chime.

Pointless – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

No need to shout to prove your clout.
Respect begets respect.

No need to interject who is the best,
to slash the wrist and still insist.

Amidst the ‘holler and all the tries,
it’s always better to be polite,

than show the might of a brilliant mind,
yet cut the ties that bind your life.

What is Life

Life is …. https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Life is a lie
when truth flies

Life is truth
when your eyes are blind

Life is blind
When joy hides

Life is joy
when love drives

Life is love
with all its flat tires.

 

Truly life is not life without any kind of love.  Life begins with love and ends in love.  Romantic love, Family love, self-love, selfish love, selfless love, whatever kind of love that keeps you going.

And love should not always be romantic.

Any passion that makes you wake up in the morning with rays of hope is also love.

You may be childless but you can love a child not your own or  hate the mess they put you in  but still love creating books for them.

How is that possible?  I don’t know.   All i know is life is full of mysterious things inexplicable by logic  such as love.   If only i know the answers.   Oh, i’d rather keep it that way,  after all,  Life starts with L for love and learning and ends in letter E for end.   Life ends.   Love doesn’t.

Life is Learning and Love is encompassing.   No wonder both of them have only four letters.

Both words start with L and ends in E.   The only difference is the letters in between.

Life has a big If ,  and if you take away the f,  then life becomes a lie,
but love doesn’t include if.   No wonder we love without If’s, most of the time i guess.

Love’s in between letters are OV.    I can’t think of any words that starts with Ov.

Well,  Over?   When love is over , one thinks life ends.   But that confuses me, if those two in between letters differentiate life from love,  then why is the ending the same?

Oh never mind,  life is really simple i just make it complicated.   So instead of defining life,  I’d rather write a poetry. 🙂
