    Not at all angliholic. In art as in life the period of realism follows that of romanticism. I think it takes maturity to deal with aging and decay. It is another kind of love.
    I hope I wasn´t too realistic. I forget that people from the orient sometimes take the things very serious.

    Couldn't agree with you more, Danik. I've been a daydreamer all my life but sometimes, I'm very realistic though most of the time romantic.

    I think it takes maturity to deal with aging and decay. It is another kind of love.

    Well put. Impressed.

    It's a myth that people from the orient take things very seriously. Tastes differ as people are different.

    Midsummer Rain

    I wasn't aware that
    you paid a visit
    on this sweltering hot afternoon
    while I was taking a nap.
    Only after
    I opened the door,
    stepped outside,
    and found
    the street was still wet,
    was I flabbergasted at your graciousness.
    You've been gracing my humble place,
    bringing more hope and happiness
    to me than my mistress.
    Thank you for the painstaking efforts
    you've made for me.
    Without you,
    I don't know how to survive
    this inferno-like summer.

    Thanks, Buh4Bee, for the nice feedback which I just read and which surely made my day. Because of your praise, I'm willing to pick up my rusty poetic pen and scribble something again.

    The End of Summer Heat

    Should we have a toast
    for the end of the scorching hot days
    or should we sit weeping quietly
    and ceaselessly
    at the edge of a maple forest,
    for all the young green leaves
    are turning yellow?
    Would you please, my friends,
    be so kind enough as not to ask me?
    for I don't know the answer, either.
    The only thing I know is
    that I've given up flying freely
    in the Peter Pan's sky
    for a long long time,
    having long lost the privilege
    to daydream from time to time.

    Nostalgic verses, angliholic. Glad to read your poem in the last days of winter chill, at the brink of spring.

    I wonder how much I still fly "in the Peter Pan's sky".

    thanks, danik, for the kind feedback. And i guess you must dwell in australia now--weather and everything opposite to us.

    Thanks, Danik, for the reply and in fact, I never thought you're from Brazil, which is a real exotic country to me. I'm from Formosa, Taiwan.

    Formosa is a heavenly island which I take great pride in and love more and more. By the way, isn't your mother tongue Spanish? How come your English is so terrific?
    The following is a link about Taiwan.

    Tired of Being a Rock

    Seeing
    how graceful and flexible the weeping willow is
    when swaying with the wind,
    I start melting
    and feeling tired of being obstinate
    as a rock all my life.

    I enjoyed this poem about flexibility!

    Thanks for the link, angliholic. My mother tongue is German, but in Brazil we speak Portuguese, though we are surrounded by Spanish speaking neighbours.
    Here is a general link about Brazil:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazil

    As for my English, I still have a lot of dificulties, specially with written English.
    Litneting has helped me to become more fluent.

    Thanks, Danik, for the crystal clear explanation and the link. English is still a foreign language in this part and it's really hard to have a good command. That's why I write poems in English simply to use it more.
