吟诗作对


After my previous post, I chanced upon this old Chinese post at the bottom under Linkwithin:

无常

Non-Chinese reading readers may want to stop and leave now. Sorry.

There's a reason why this post's heading is in Chinese. Duh!



This is what I meant by poetry club. Totally unplanned, unrehearsed. 


Sillyinvestor got the ball rolling with:

常常回我家,爸妈笑哈哈。
常常上厕所,医生远离我。
常常见你面,为何没笑脸?



LP chimed in with:

常常回我家,親人变冤家。
常常上厕所,迟早上诊所。
常常見你面,你找三宝殿?


I joined the fun revealing my phobia of marriage:

常常回我家,暗示你想嫁。
常常上厕所,验孩把我锁。
常常見你面,我还不厌卷?


Endrene, the rose amongst the thorns, showed who's boss:

常常回我家,米桶添一下。
常常上厕所,马桶你来刷。
常常见你面,七窍多生烟!



And added this recovery to lull us back to her sweet tenderness:

常常回我家,贴金又贴心。
常常上厕所,喝多打哆嗦。
常常见你面,金愿都实现!



I had a change of heart:

常常回我家,买鱼又买虾。
常常上厕所,多吃的后果。
常常见你面,美梦快成现!



And LP wrapped it all up by changing structure and form (rule breaker):

老婆回娘家,常常我回家。
泪流那里躲,常常上厕所。
常常見你面,為和不道歉?
常常破你心,為和不换新? 




Of course this is not the exception. Regular readers will know some of the more scintillating exchanges happen frequently at the most unexpected posts.

Especially comments about sex, religion, and politics!

Sometimes we even babble on with weird topics like - cosmology, philosophy, arts, literature, history, anime, manga, and "char shao bao"!?

LOL!



P.S. Special thanks to the wonderful and don't take themselves too seriously readers who bothered to take the time to "play" with me. 

Come to think of it, who else would bother to comment to a "blank" post?

  3. Hi SMOL,

    把酒當歌,人生幾何!:D

    金樽清酒斗十千,玉盘珍羞直万钱。
    人生得意須儘歡,莫使金樽空對月。

    Cheers!

    1. Wow Endrene!

      Combining 李白: 行路难 and 将进酒 :)


      I prefer 苏轼: 水调歌头.

      Why?

      Because I love 王菲's cover version!

      LOL!

  4. 要吟诗作对, of course must quote inspiration from the poets whom I admire! LOL.

    The first verse is a variation of 曹操's 《短歌行》对酒当歌,人生几何。

    李白 not only has 才情, he has 豪情。His optimism and tenacity in times of adversity is most moving and endearing. 我倾心于他,是他跨时空的铁粉! >.<

    I dedicate 徐小凤's 《顺流逆流》in memory of him!

    几多艰苦当天我默默接受,
    几多辛酸也未放手。
    故意挑剔今天我不在乎,
    只跟心中意愿去走。

    不相信未作牺牲竟先可拥有,
    只相信是靠双手找到我欲求。

    1. Endrene,

      Ah! Yes.

      How not to love 李白 when there's a little bit of "hippiness" and romanticsm in us?

      He is who I think of when I fantasize being a Taoist man of leisure 仙人。。。

  5. Hi EY and smol,

    You guys can still remember the poems at the back of your hand. I ask myself who I admired? Not 李白,feel he a bit 浮夸,杜甫a bit too depressed. (MHO)

    Suddenly I remember 夏完淳 《狱中上母书》, guess it's one of my favourite

    1. Sillyinvestor,

      I never commit to memory what I can easily access ;)

      The only Chinese poem I can recite is 李白's - 床前明月光...

      I got to know 苏轼 because of 王菲's - 但愿人长久。


      Friend, in old days, we need rote memory to enjoy poetry. Now we have Google ;)


      李白 suits me fine. I'm a wine, women, song kind of guy :)


      As a caregiver, I now appreciate and value ACTION more than WORDS. I can easily be in Sweden writing how much I miss mom and sorry that my career is more priority...

      Here's more money to hire another maid, or upgrade to a better nursing home.

      I seek solace that anything money can solve is not a problem. Or so I tell myself...

  6. Hi SI,

    I only remember a few verses that sing to my heart. 李白 seemed to be the 鼻祖 of YOLO. I admire that spirit. In a way, his work reminds me not to take life too seriously. 一切随遇而安就好。:)
