Masquerade

Psychedelic lights . Winter 2008 . by cc
Psychedelic lights. click photo to enlarge.

Music is playing, people dancing around
I turn and turn, hoping to catch the tunes
I see wonders, in the smiles and laughters
I see sorrows, in the hesitations and pauses
Are they a facet or emotions from the heart
One couldn’t tell, we just take it on and dance away
I strike along, looking to grasp that pace of life
In the world of a big masquerade, going round and round…

    Life’s a kaleidoscope of half turns and full twists! Round and round we go.

    CC: I like kaleidoscope, it reminds me of my childhood. I could spend hours looking into it. 🙂

    I am still guessing what is it in the picture. Mind to tell?

    CC: The photo was taken by a bus/taxi stand, on a busy street. The background are the traffic lights and street lights. 😉 I was on my way home.

    its just like the yellow lemon tree song …… “turning around, round and round”

    CC: That song is so addictive. I used to listen to it over and over again.

    Nice photo. I like two words in this post – masquerade and psychedelic, especially psychedelic. You are good with words : )

    CC: I love those two words too! Kinda illusive, don’t you think?

    “This Masquerade” song comes to mind..

    Are we really happy with this lonely game we play,
    Looking for the right words to say?
    Searching but not finding — understanding anyway,
    We’re lost in this masquerade.

    Fascinating picture!

    CC: I heart Carpenters! Thanks. 🙂

    Hi, can I know the name of the restaurant that serve delicious crab in Old Klang Road? I would like to try it too.

    CC: I think it’s called hai peng, don’t remember the chinese name though. It’s near the entrance to Taman Desa, on old klang road. Hope that helps!

    what an appropriate post title.

    cool lighting treatment and matching poetry to boot.

    life’s one big masquerade indeed 🙂

    Love the colours of the picture! Paired with the words, it reminds me of a gloomy Friday night, standing out on the busy streets waiting for a cab to go home.

    CC: You’re exactly right, except it was a saturday. 🙂
