    Heavenly Blues

    If you're grieving
    for the spring
    that has sneaked away
    without warning
    with the one
    you adore most.
    Why not take in
    the heavenly blues,
    for they're forever young
    as the one
    you pine for most?
    I'm certain
    you'll ignore the blues
    for many a century
    the moment
    you're wrapped up in
    ethereal beauty.

    It's Drizzling Again

    It's drizzling again,
    and I'm thinking of you.
    Thinking of your silky long hair,
    floating in the air,
    conjuring up a dreamy heaven
    in the misty rain
    on this autumn night.
    I'm eager to be a street lamp,
    ever waiting ...
    waiting for you
    to stroll by
    to reflect your grace
    on each raindrop
    on my face.
    If you happen to see me
    wobbling ...,
    don't blame the innocent wind
    or the whisky,
    for it's your intoxicating beauty
    that makes me drunk
    over and over again.

    Meditating Moth

    During the whole day,
    I meditate
    on the holy verse,
    and nothing in this universe
    seems to be able to lead me astray~
    never getting dead drunk,
    pretty much like a monk.
    Come the evening,
    without thinking,
    I start dancing
    around an artificial street light
    until deep into the night.

    On the Rainy Day

    On the rainy day,
    I'm your handy umbrella
    on the way
    back home
    to hold on to dearly
    like a poem.
    More often than not,
    I fear not
    dripping
    like a leaking jug,
    if only
    you feel safe and snug.

    All Parties Must Come to an end

    My friend,

    I'm afraid
    all parties must come to an end.
    One day
    when you have to see me off,
    don't get in a fret
    as to
    what to wear for the day.
    Suppose
    you don't have anything valuable
    to put on,
    just wear a smile,
    sincere and humble.

    For Real

    Is it for real
    that you moved to a blue bayou
    named Ethereal?
    I had meant to present you
    with a bunch of yellow roses,
    but didn't have any chances.
    It makes no difference
    now that
    those flowers are meaningless,
    compared with your sublime grace.
    Without rhyme or reason,
    the rain simply keeps falling tonight
    during this dry season,
    and it's freezing cold
    in the middle of the night.
    However,
    what really makes me feel blue
    is not the wintry weather,
    but you
    that disappeared without a trace.

    Crying

    Crying ...,
    the moment
    I came into this world
    I was crying ...
    When your smile was here to stay
    bright and charming,
    to humble all the May flowers,
    I was crying ...,
    worrying
    it'd disappear one day.
    Now that you've drifted far far away,
    I'm crying ...
    like a cicada facing
    an empty stage
    at the extreme edge
    of the world.
    Perhaps,
    one day
    when I stop crying,
    it'll be the day you start crying.

    If You're a White Cloud

    If you're a white cloud,
    I'd rather be a green mountain
    lying flat on my back,
    gazing admiringly at you
    up above my head
    night and day.
    Don't be upset
    when I'm gaping and speechless,
    for there's a little brook nearby
    rippling a sweet melody
    on my behalf.
    Suppose you ask
    what I'm worried about most,
    then you'll see
    it's you
    that might get sad one day
    and turn yourself into tears.
    I'm not afraid
    to get soaking wet,
    but I might miss you
    for ages before running across
    your reincarnation
    once again.

    Your Sweetness of Yesterday

    Roselles are coming
    back to flower
    at this time of the year
    without making
    any promise
    to the season.
    Yet without a reason,
    you've disappeared forever
    and ever.
    Your sweetness of yesterday
    has turned into this sorrow
    of today
    If there's a tornado
    tomorrow,
    I wonder
    whether
    it's able to move this sorrow
    even for a centimeter.

    Just a Humble Weed

    In view of being
    just a weed,
    small and humble,
    I know clearly
    how to count my blessing.
    I regard myself
    as lucky,
    for I don't need to be
    constantly
    under the pressure
    of transforming myself
    into the tallest tree
    in the field
    so that
    I can enjoy
    living a simple
    and peaceful life.

    You or Winter Sunshine

    Badly missing home,
    and treading alone on the way home,
    on a walking path
    lined with evergreen pines,
    all of a sudden,
    I wake up to the warm sunshine
    that's spreading brightly
    over the grass,
    the trees and my body.
    If you ask me by chance,
    which is the utmost importance
    in my life,
    you or the winter sunshine?
    Without a doubt,
    my answer is not the sunshine.
    Though it can light my way home,
    yet a house is not a home
    without you.

    Seeing a Friend Off

    And you're leaving today
    in such a hurry,
    It seems only yesterday
    you came to visit me.
    Rosebuds are still pretty,
    for one more day
    will you be able to stay
    to appreciate their beauty
    together in May?

    Let the Snow Fall

    Let the snow fall,
    and let me close the door
    of this ancient poetry store.
    After the evening glow
    has turned resplendent no more,
    I wonder
    whether songbirds still remember
    how to sing their song
    in tune
    with June
    in a sky grey and dull.
    Let me go,
    and let the snow fall
    since I don't have anything
    beautiful
    to show to the world.

    You Can Save Your Troubles

    If you feel like calling on me,
    you needn't run all the way
    to my shabby shanty.
    You can save all your troubles today
    as well as another day.
    Constantly riding on air,
    I'm everywhere
    except at my own humble place.
    In case
    I'm being at my shanty,
    my mind will be still lingering
    in a green valley
    where there's a stream flowing
    serenely
    night and day.

    Praying Mantes

    Our heavenly Father,
    We thank thee for providing our daily bugs.
    We ask thee to keep showering us
    with countless green backs
    and protect us from getting old.
    We can easily deposit those extra bucks
    in a bank,
    but where could we get rid of
    those gnawing old ages?
    Please forgive us our trespasses
    as we forgive those predators
    who prey upon us.
    After all,
    we're just trivial praying mantes.

    Amen
