    watching white clouds floating up in the sky
    or savoring a winding stream nearby

    It will be back, I trust. And you will be writing about it.
    Thanks, Danik, for reading and your most uplifting words. I try hard to write beautiful pieces but I'm afraid that my muse is getting senile and dotted.

    Have Myself to Thank

    Who was to blame?
    When you were one and twenty
    and charming as a purple water lily,
    who wouldn't fall head over heels in love
    with your bewitching smile
    and became lame?
    After the thief of youth and beauty
    has stolen all of your colorful petals,
    I can't help ruminating~
    did I really fall in love with you
    or simply with a pretty flower?
    Seeing that you're not at all impeccable
    as I am not, either,
    I only have myself to thank.

    Two tumbleweeds


    It was by sheer chance
    that we ran across each other
    just like two tumbleweeds rolling together
    in a wasteland.
    Although I'm not exactly your prince charming,
    yet I'm sincere and keep smiling;
    therefore,
    please be kind and patient to me
    because it's for sure
    that we'll go our own way
    sooner or later.

    Iciness in Cold Winter

    While the wind's howling outside,
    you don't need to keep reminding me
    of those good old days
    we had in warmer weather.
    I do really remember and appreciate them,
    but I don't believe
    the summer sunshine is able
    to disperse this iciness in cold winter.
    In this bleak season,
    I've lost my primitive instinct--dreaming.

    Words of Gold


    Don't make fun of me
    because my face's wrinkly
    as the small dimples on the water
    made by a breeze.
    Please don't taunt me
    because my hair's grayer
    than all the snow on the trees
    in gloomy winter.
    Despite being melancholy
    as a lonesome caterpillar,
    I've come to treasure your honey
    just like the eternal verity.
