Whisper to Lace-Red Rose (Bracelet)


Till a’the seas gang dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt wi’the sun!

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

While the sands o’life shall run.

Whisper to Lace-Rings of 2009 Winter



I love to be clasped by you so close and tight,

To feel your warmth,

And to smell your scent……….


Whisper to Lace-Vividness


Where you come like the spring,

To drive away the wintry weather.

Your vividness to let me forget the world has been so dark………

Whisper to Lace-Forest Girl II


I see your face there upon looking on a wild flower,

Your beauty seems like illusion,

Once I try to hold, it will float into the depth of forest………


Whisper to Lace-Forest Girl I


You pass by in silence,

Left the fresh air as in the morning of spring………

Whisper to Lace-Still


I like for you to be still, and you seem far away.

It sounds as though you were lamenting, a butterfly cooing like a dove.

And you hear me from far away, and my voice does not reach you.

Let me come to be still in your silence.

Kaori Ekuni (江國香織), born at March 21, 1964, is a Japanese author.

She was born in Setagaya, Tokyo. Her father is Japanese haiku poet and

essayist, Shigeru Ekuni.  In Japan, she had been named the female Murakami.

Her innumerous work of fiction has been translated in many language published

in many nations.


With the light and transparent feeling when I read her fiction,

such atmosphere will keep me to relax and float upon the cloud for a while……….

This book narrated the marriage life of Kaori Ekumi, reading the plots in book

about her husband, I am obliged to have such question: why are they in same

aspects for all of the married men?  Like to watch TV, news paper when they

are at home; mostly, husband stared at the screen, but actually, he did not really

watch what the TV programs was playing, perhaps, this is a way to relax his

exhausted body and heart………


In the beginning of marriage, husband and I are different people,

whatever for favorite music, food, movie or books, however,

after many years, presently, we are more close to the same one.

We adjusted our tune through every quarrel, the fighting did not

separate us, but stick us more.


Kaori Ekumi’s marriage life is routine as the most couples,

yet, still waters run deep, routine marriage goes far……………

Whisper to Lace-Whirlpool of Memory


Last night, you jumped into my dream incidentally,

For many years, I have not thought of you anymore,

I thought--- I have forgotten you……..

Yet… as your coming, my serenity is stirred again…………..



Whisper to Lace-Dark Night


I feel your beauty, dark night,

Like that of the loved woman when she has put out the lamp.

Gray Sky


It is gray sky today, no rain, but is windy……what kind of thing will be good for such air?

Humm……To read novel is a not bad idea, ok, do it.  Starting for the library now………..

Exciting feel is full of heart, reading novels always bring me into another different world,

traveling with writer’s pen to experience those time and space which I have never been.

Maybe in Victoria time, or in somewhere of Japan, or in some unknown place……….

I expect to meet someone who is charming in the book, no matter who is man or woman.

That will be a cheerful thing under the gray sky…………

Sjögren's Syndrome


10/05/2009 is a date which deserve to be remembered, I was diagnosed

Sjogren’s Syndrome by Far Eastern Memorial Hospital.  Sjogren’s Syndrome

is an autoimmune disorder in which immune cells attack and destroy the

exocrine glands that produce tears and saliva.  It is not surprised to me for

got this disease since  mother also have such illness for many years, however,

I still feel a little bit upset………sigh……..finally I cannot escape from the

destiny as mother……


Currently, there is neither a known cure for Sjogren's syndrome nor a specific

treatment to permanently restore gland secretion, it is a bad news, but the good

thing is that the patients with SS will not die in short time, for example, my

mother has lived with this disease more than 5 years up to now, and can go

anywhere she want without any problems.


After struggling for three days, I do not want to be in a bad mood all the time,

after all, upset is nothing help to my illness, so “Don’t worry, Be happy”,

at least, my current symptoms is very mild and still can have a quality life.

Cheer up!!!   “Laughter is the best therapy”.




Whisper to Lace-Sweety (Bracelet)


I love you with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life--

And, if God choose,

I shall but love you better after death.


                        ~~Elizabeth Barrett Browning~~


Whisper to Lace-True Love (Bracelet)


Love’s not Time’s fool,

Though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle’s compass come;

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out even to the edge of doom.


                        ~~William Shakespeare~~

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white
Clean and bright
You look so happy to meet me

Blossom of snow
May you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever

Bless my homeland forever



This song has been sung for over 40 years, however, it is still very beautiful…………

Whisper to Lace-Spirit of Flower


You walked through the shadow of the champa tree

to the little court where you say your prayers,

You would notice the scent of the flower,

But not know that it came from me.......

What the Nose Knows: The Science of Scent in Everyday Life


This book (written by Avery Gilbert) let me know many things regarding

sense of smelling, which is a fantastic journey I have never been.  It reminds

me to pay more attention on the odors. Have you smelled the scent of rain?

I do.  It is hard to describe, something like a mixture of humidity, dust, and

grass, it always shows up in the meantime of rain oncoming.  The scent owns

the power to evoke memories to change our moods and influence our behavior,

such as, I feel relaxed and delighted upon the coffee aroma spreading in the air;

the scene of summer night in childhood suddenly flash upon smelling the scent

of tuberose; smelling the firecracker burned always triggers the happy memories

about Chinese New Year.


Loving the scent of flower, flowers talk to world in scent instead of language,

she always whispers in silent, to spread her voice by wind.  However, the

scent of flower is easy to dissipate, so people make the perfume to try to

keep it for more time.  A little bit perfume put on body is great, but a lot of

perfume will be a disaster.  In addition to the scent of flower, I love the

aroma of food----fry garlic, stew meatball in red wine sauce, roast fish

with rosemary, mature passionfruit……..How wonderful they are!  


I think that will be less fun if people cannot smell anymore.

Sucking…… breathing………waiting……..

Only to praise for the great Dionysus.

Whisper to Lace-Hope

Hope” is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops-at all
