Just Beyond The Sunset - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

we have rushed so that
we won't miss the sunset
the cafe is open and we
make sure we get seats
close to the waves

the sun sends its
evening glory and hope
promising another great day
before dipping into the bosom
of the sea

beyond the horizon,
beyond the sunset,
is a dream cherished,
blazing forth in the last hours and
corouscated with the warm breeze
every dream is a treasure feeding
the heart its vitality

after all the hard work,
leisure is the sea and the sun
in a wondrous nerve soothing show;
a dizzying shimmering orange sings its shine
while the whispering breeze and carressing leaves
convey our admiration and
prayers of gratitude
in the most angelic manner

the sun and sea meet to prove
that things are seldom impossible
the positive notes and vibes roll
all over our nerves and cells
laughters join the srges of the waves

the light tinkers like a mozart:
faint, warm, hypnotic,
skillful and brilliant with a
distinct fervour running on
every note before the 10 dancers
big, small, lengthy
and stumpy at the ivory bars
leap into a frenzy to showcase
a heavenly grace

a top tenor, a top artist, a top model,
a top musician, roar, roll over
and are swept onto shore
we all chase our ambition
with the passion vast as the sea
nothing could stop a dream
from becoming a reality here
the waves keep repeating the golden message
as they send their good wishes
over and over to reaffirm us what
ceaseless work can do; they have bore
a hole right through rock

this fine evening, we have rushed to the beach
just to make sure we dont miss the sunset
we drive, we hurry, we arrive and we cheer
and clap
