Who sits on the Red Lotus flower?

“The Goddess of Wealth
…who sits on the Red Lotus flower

offers the fair flow of water,
…affluent shadow,

affluence of paddy harvest,
…name and fame,

huge prosperity,
…lots of wealth and property;

she also always offers longevity
…for those who are not deceptive and trickery!”

(V.K. Kanniappan translation from Tamil Nalvazhi)

A painted house is like a poem

“In the end, a finished polished piece…
Makes the artist, happy and at peace.

The work is finally done…
What hard work, finished-Now 
feelings of enjoyed fun.”

(M. Gale in A painted house is like a poem)

The inflatable house


”“What kind of house is this,” he said
“Where I have come to roam?”
“It’s not a house,” said Judas Priest
“It’s not a house . . . it’s a home””

Standard de Liège certainly does not play today


“Foot ball’s fate is to be hit by feet
Kicks from all sides the poor is to meet.

Each team carries it to the goal of opponent
This homeless has no place permanent.”
