“。。。他覺得彼此的相遇真是偶然,偶然才美妙。”

Birthday wishes & a bowl of soup,

sticky-notes like a bookmark fill,

roasted meats with beer & laughter,

the last ruling judge in the OT; was what mattered,

as the fly of the may, ephemeral was to be,

swift & fleeting, thoughts keep running.

Choices were mounting, a choice it was to be,

not made, not heard, embers left burning.

Ice was freezing, pain was hurting,

not felt, unvoiced, ears kept ringing.

Those words like fusilar, inking the being,

as polaroids on an onion skin.

Little star, little star, shining so bright,

eyes made blind, where once there was sight.

shining

Deus Fortitudo Mea & then some

Late post … just wanted to post this up for the record. I realised there weren’t as many examples of chest tattoos done using Latin text. So here is mine, a chest piece, of a line of text in Latin. It reads Deus Fortitudo Mea (God is my strength).
During my search for a line of text I wanted for the chest tattoo, I found that most examples I encountered used the famous line ‘Carpe Diem’. And there were also numerous others in English, such as ‘Family’, ‘Love’ and names of loved ones. As I continued searching, I decided upon ‘God is my strength’ after sitting on it for months. And to make it more personal, I decided to have it done in Latin. I thought to myself that what I would have on my arm will already be in English and is quite noticeable. So why not have something on my chest which I thought few would understand unless they came up and asked me about it? It gave me an opportunity to show people what makes me tick …. well that was what I thought. So there, in Latin.

Oh by the way, as I was looking for the translation, many samples did in fact surface. There was Dominus (Lord) against Deus (God), Mea against Nostra, etc. I came upon having the decide between The Lord if my strength, God is my strength & The Lord is OUR strength, God is OUR strength. Got to learn a teeny itsy bit of Latin, and came out all the better for it.
