Plain Steamed Rice

Let my poetry usher you to my photographs



Day 138 in 2017

Oh how I miss December,

When the warmth of love radiates my universe,

As the little lights shine through the entire house. 

The heart jumps up the moment I greet each morning, 

As if surprises await around the corner, 

Waiting for me to chant my wish verse. 

The joy causes my life to arouse, 

In the festive days like Spring. 


Day 25 in 2017

The night ride must be unwavery,

Vaulting into the battle field submissively, 

Breaking through the dark boldly, 

Bringing forth the light unfalteringly. 

Day 2 in 2017  

Yes, it is January the second, 

And everyone was still having fun, 

Including Mr. Blazing Sun! 

It was hot,  ice cream could melt in a split second. 

Mr. Sun shone his heart out all around. 

Perhaps he was thrilled to make it to the second round 

Of the new year, in the first month. 

Perhaps he wanted to be found

Faithful all around 

Toward  everyone.

Perhaps he wanted everyone 

To know that nobody is left behind. 

Thanks,  Mr. Sun!

I’ll keep that in mind 😊 

It’s the end of December, it’s the end of the year…


It’s the end of December,

and I haven’t posted anything.

I was busy, I got sick,

hospitalized for three days

t’was really something.

Got three packs of blood,

to increase the haemo level,

got to eat lots of food,

yes, to increase the haemo level!

It’s the end of December,

favorite month of the year.

It’s my birthday, it’s Christmas,

all can be found in one month.

I love presents, all around,

birthday is for receiving,

Christmas is for the giving,

both are the symbols of affection,

to and from me.

It’s the end of December,

Got a MacBook for my birthday,

Yippie yey, yippie yo, yippie yay!

Promise myself to blog everyday

and shoot more pics

even when I’m sick!

It’s the end of the year,

have been thinking and contemplating,

on how 2011 has treated me,

and vice versa…

now I’m wondering,

how 2012 will treat me,

and vice versa…

Learned a lot in 2011,

and will surely learn more in 2012.


it’s the end of December,

it’s the end of the year.

O how I miss blogging! It’s been a while…

Yesterday my grade 9ers handed me their homework: rhymy poems! They were struggling to find the words, but they did it fantastically! That’s why I post them here 😀

MONTHS & CELEBRATIONS by Janitra Saraswati

Jolly January brings the fun,

And lots of homeworks that need to be done.

Lots of lovebirds are seen on February,

Valentine’s Day with scent of raspberry.

March comes with daffodils and breeze,

Every mom deserves a feast.

If you get tricked, just shout ‘Hooray!’

‘Cause April has April Fool’s Day.

Exam, exam on miserable May,

Dates with books every night and day.

On June, scream out ‘HOLIDAY!’

Go slay dragons on games, or go to the bay.

July has Hot Diggity Dog day,

“What a weird celebration,” you may say.

Indonesia’s Independence Day is on August,

To join all the fun would be the coolest.

September brings fruits and juice,

Drink a glass with some blues.

Prepare your costume, pumpkin and sweet,

‘Cause in October there’ll be ‘trick or treat’!

November brings mushroom and Thanksgiving,

Get ready for turkey, pumpkin pie and stuffing.

At the end, comes December,

Heaps of celebrations worth to remember.


MY 12 MONTHS! by Jessica Meilina

January means new year,

Get ready, prepare your eyes and ears.

February has Valentine in it,

Receive chocolates and start to eat!

March is time to study,

Be serious, forget the comedy.

April starts with April Fools Day,

Let’s start to play.

May is my birthday month,

Go on, and start to count.

June brings holiday,

Days that bring me bills to pay.

July starts the new school year,

Many new things that will make you crazier.

August is the independence month of Indonesia,

My very own utopia.

September means back to school,

Calm your soul, stay cool.

October brings us Halloween party,

Try to express yourself freely.

November is the heartbeat,

Eventhough there’e nothing special, but we can’t miss it.

December is when we celebrate Christmas,

Heading to new year and cature the past.
