What's Coming Over Me?

"I like the fact that you're so spontaneous, so witty, so sweet - but only to me."

You

Romantic Comedy

I dedicate this to all Lovers.


"Hark the loud red flowers in loverly bloom!
Basking in the breeze and May days' sun,
Oh, their radiance hath dispelled mine gloom!
But more radiant than thee, I see none."

"Oh stop," you said to me with cheeks aflame,
"You silly man with your bad poetric!
It’s sweet - adorable even - but so very lame,
They’ll market you soon as the next emetic!"

"Ahah! you’re in error," I retorted,
"That wasn’t poetry from mine lips spouted,
But Love."

And I stole a kiss from you,
In that moment you stood agape.

Near Manipal Bookland.

In a private park behind a small bungalow.

These pictures are reminders to those who have yet to realise or notice that we're thick in the month of May - possibly the prettiest time of the year in Manipal. Sure there are class tests (like the Microbiology one I'm flunking in a few hours time), but remember to enjoy the flowering trees so laden with blossoms that they look as if they are ready to keel over anytime soon.

A close-up which I could not resist snapping.

walkway
Somewhere near that infernal T. M. Pai Hall where they torture us with exams.

They aren't going to stick around forever, y'know.


I want you to smile,

@rabbit
About RM500 - RM600 if you go by Jet Airways - but I warn you first; you'll have to change your flight twice + 2 hour busride. Can cry one.

a doctor turned photographer and then jiwang poem blogwriter?


*i skip reading the poem actually. not into poems. so forgive me if it's not that jiwang but more comedic<--taken from the title*

What has come over you?

Spring (or is it summer?), my friend, spring and the memories of past love that it always evokes.

The pictures are gorgeous - nothing like a poinciana tree/ bougainvillea in full bloom.

ps: I would never doubt that you were witty and sweet and wonderful and considerate....but only to Perfection. She was a lucky, lucky girl.

@ah pau
I'm sure there are if you know where to look. I take lots of long walks, and I was actually looking for nice things to snap.

@pinksterz
I was a jiwang poem writer since Form 4 actually. I rarely compose any these days. Uninspired (plus, some people don't read poems, mia XD)

@michellesy
It's summer actually, but yes, there was a distinct feeling of spring wafting about in the air.
The Royal Ponciana! So that's what it's called! I'm such a botanical moron.

michellesy the non-green-thumb-inclined said...

I'm a botanical moron too actually.

This can be proved by the fact that I flounced around calling poncianas 'flame trees' until I was (sternly) corrected by my next door neighbour.

But I still think flame trees sound lovelier *hmph and makes that snobby face icon that you do so well*
