    Cool The Scribbles of a Lonely Traveller

    Tingling Wind Chime


    The wind chime
    hanging at the front door
    is tingling
    and my heart is echoing
    with the soothing ringing

    Yet I know
    it's not so much the gentle wind
    as your soft whisper of blessing
    from afar
    that swings the chime
    and sends it jingling

    Could You Lend Me a Smile

    Since you went away
    with April rain
    my garden has virtually turned into a wasteland

    Empty bottles are more than enough to make a small island
    yet this sorrow of mine is still on the safety land

    If you don't mind
    could you lend me a smile
    so that I could bury it in my barren land

    And wish in a little while
    it might grow into an oasis of sunflowers
    on the wasteland

    Cool A Grass Leaf in Midsummer

    As the heat wave
    is in full play
    I may appear droopy and fade
    in the sizzling hot sun

    As long as I hold on
    a little longer
    I'm sure
    I'll be able to savor
    the mesmerizing evening glow
    in a few hours or so

    The beads of sweat
    on my little face
    are going
    to convert into simmering
    dewdrops
    in the next morning

    Hanging on till next season
    I'll have a reason
    to harvest
    the falling rainbow leaves
    falling from the heavens

    Cool Summer Evening Again

    It's another summer evening
    and everywhere
    people are coming and going

    Walking alone
    on the sidewalk beside the library
    I don't feel lonely at all
    in this bustling city

    for at least
    I have my most loyal dog
    named Shadow
    heeling and accompanying me
    all the way home
    in the sunset glow

    Oh! Summer Breeze

    Oh
    Summer Breeze
    while you're humming
    all the golden hair aspens are
    pulling up their skirts
    coyly revealing
    their creamy long legs
    and pirouetting gracefully
    to your intoxicating melody

    You know
    I'm not a man of whisky
    but my heart is tipsy
    all the same

    Cool Lonely July

    The cicadas won't stop bawling
    it's not due to
    the heat waves in July
    but you
    that vanished
    without a goodbye

    Summer breezes still
    keep breezing
    yet my heart like the wind bell hanging
    from the ceiling
    isn't singing
    simply
    because
    you're missing

    For Sara

    Let's take a walk
    if you please
    at the beach
    at the first streak of sunlight

    And take a glimpse
    at a hermit crab
    scurrying across the sand
    by the boundless immemorial ocean
    leaving
    only a few traces
    erased by the small hands of waves
    in no time
    along with our footprints

    In the distance
    there may loom a ship
    carrying our dream and hope
    as always
    at the mercy of pending tempests

    If you please
    let's stroll in a casual way
    till the sun sinking in the west
    and then relish
    the most fantastic moment in a day

    If you could ignore the seagulls
    home flying
    squawking and wailing

    For Marilyn

    Isn't it a beautiful pity
    you should fly away so young
    a pretty song barely sung

    Isn't it a blessing
    in disguise
    the youthful smile is
    a blue bell forever beaming in spring
    the only happy memory you left for us
    in this mundane place

    Love in the Mist

    Everything looks vague
    and blurry
    in my nearsighted eyes
    but I don't think
    I could use
    a pair of glasses

    It's not that
    I'd feel disgusted
    to see bugs
    scuttling everywhere
    but that
    I'd rather
    admire you in the mist

    To Vincent

    Some said you were dirty, ugly, and dressed badly
    others said you were impolite, disagreeable, and ungracious
    Well that makes the two of us

    Your sadness does last forever
    even after you were recognized as a master

    Nevertheless
    even before my poetry becomes immortal
    I'm afraid my loneliness has already been eternal

    If I Could Buy Spring Back

    If thinking of you
    would stop the clock from ticking
    then
    I'd forget about
    the falling petals in late summer

    If autumn's breeze
    is ready
    to sweep away those yellow faded leaves
    then
    I'm willing to be swept away
    with them
    to a far-off place

    If I could buy spring back
    in the snowflake-flying winter
    then
    I wouldn't
    pine away like a lonely traveler

    Falling Leaves in Summer

    Sitting in the shade of a eucalyptus
    I rejoice over cool summer breezes
    they simply keep blowing

    The vibe is relaxing this morning
    except for the falling leaves
    like annoying flies
    they simply keep coming

    Since it's impossible to clean them all
    the second I decide to release them all
    like colorful butterflies
    they fly
    against a clear sky

    Golden Passion Fruit

    I enjoy seeing the sunshine
    caressing your young face
    when you seem
    coy and shy
    hanging from the green vine

    I'm not going to
    pick you here and now

    If I do
    your life will go evermore sour

    I know
    I must have patience
    before I win
    your aroma of passion

    I'll wait in the shade
    as many days
    as the heat of the sun
    turns you into golden yellow
    sweet and mellow

    Summer Rain

    The sun is beaming brightly
    this morning
    and
    in the green trees
    little birds are still chirping

    Everything is all delightful
    and right
    yet this heart
    is still raining as last night

    The summer rain went away late
    last night

    It's not the rainbow
    that I missed
    but
    your charming silhouette over it

    Cool For Mona Not Lisa

    You said you were eighteen
    and asked how old I might have been

    I could pass off as eighteen
    if you add nine and nine
    but don't read it as ninety nine

    I'll pen your enigmatic grin
    on the green field in June
    like Mona Lisa forever smiling
    if you just care to give me a ring
