    Hitting the Ceiling


    With a view to being capable
    of appreciating a boundless blue sky
    now and forevermore,
    I'm all ready
    to take a step back
    before a volcano eruption,
    or before hitting the ceiling.

    A Lost Sheep

    On the outside,
    I can clearly hear
    the melancholy sound of the winter wind,
    yet, how should I begin
    explaining to you
    that I'm no more a lost sheep?
    Just as
    I'm not wrenching my heart again,
    simply because the swaying poppies in June
    are nowhere to be found
    in this wind howling season,
    so am I no longer a moody man,
    simply because your naive smiles in summer
    are missing forever and ever.

    For Someone Waiting to Hear from me

    A voice inside of me
    keeps telling me
    that I should pick up my pen,
    though ancient and rusty,
    to write a poem once again,
    not for the weather suddenly getting icy cold,
    but for someone
    who keeps waiting to hear from me
    on the far side of the sea.

    Life Is Short

    It seems only yesterday
    that I was twenty and two,
    as most young men would do,
    I'd linger away
    my precious golden morning
    around many a poppy,
    swaying and hypnotizing
    at a sea bay.
    Now that the sun is setting,
    I'm more like an old humble squirrel,
    busy searching for a cozy tree hole.
    I couldn't care less
    if any young man comes
    and plucks all the flowers home
    as long as I still treasure
    their intoxicating beauty
    during my hibernation
    in the freezing cold weather.

    Better to Miss Each Other


    Wouldn't it be better
    for us
    to miss each other
    than to meet each other?
    It's not that
    I'm not reminiscing
    about a lass
    radiant with rosy clouds,
    but that
    it's been ages
    since I quit dreaming
    of travelling
    to numerous far off places~
    no more stories
    to tell you face to face.

    Winter Sunshine


    I'm so grateful to you
    for shining brightly and warmly
    during the daytime
    in the cold winter
    that I feel like crying and shedding tears.
    If you remember to bring
    a couple of fragrant small white flowers
    to those jasmine twigs
    in front of my house,
    just as you did in July,
    it'll be as good as a miracle.
    I still have this blissful memory~
    when young as April rain
    you kept showering May flowers
    onto my garden
    in the most delightful season.
    Therefore,
    promise me that
    you won't turn yourself again
    into Cinderella's stepmother
    while the night curtain is falling.

    Lonely Winter Night

    Rumor has it that
    those who find comfort in yellow dandelions
    in autumn are lonely people.
    However,
    tonight I simply find a lamppost,
    shivering alone
    at a chilly street corner.
    Watching motorcycles and cars
    bustling around this small town,
    and all the busy breadwinners
    in a hurry going home,
    I could only wish
    everything's all right
    with those little humble flowers,
    once blooming massively and delightfully
    in my wasteland.
