    Enlightened

    I could've been dandy
    and charming
    as an adorable butterfly
    had it not been for the fact that
    I was grumpy
    and irritating
    as a disgusting mosquito.
    That said,
    how should I know autumn
    is more pleasing and cooler
    than summer
    if I hadn't fallen a victim
    to the havoc
    of the sweltering heat wave
    in the past.

    Your most uplifting words have inspired me
    to pen more verses,
    hopefully, to entertain a bit
    both your mind and your soul.
    Since all the flowers have gone with the summer wind;
    in addition,
    my muse is still on cloud nine,
    I'm afraid
    I'm no longer capable of crafting
    anything enthralling tonight.
    Nonetheless,
    if you're willing to open your heart
    as well as your window,
    there're still cool autumn breezes to relish
    before sleeping tight.
    How very sweet!

    Yes, how very true. When the suffering in life is replaced with joy, the joy is experienced far greater in the comparison.

    But not as half sweet as your kind feedback. Thanks, kiz.

    Thanks, well put, kiz. If there were no suffering in life, none would appreciate the sweet fruits when one comes to his enlightment.

    Wild Flowers

    Either I'm autistic
    or my brain is impaired
    to such a great extent
    that it takes me almost half a century
    to comprehend that
    wild flowers are as good as gardens in the air,
    not to be loved or fascinated with,
    but to be admired from a distance.
    Seeing that
    they're more bewitching and inviting,
    I have to keep reminding myself that
    my ultimate happiness
    consists in the humble flower
    at home.

    Big Fan of Autumn

    When did I start falling
    in love with autumn?
    I myself can't find the answer;
    however,
    whenever I notice street trees dancing
    and swaying serenely and tastefully
    in the cool autumn breeze
    I have a feeling
    that I must be either in heaven
    or daydreaming.

    I saw those trees dancing; very well put.
    Lovely last two lines, too.

    Thanks, kiz. I think I didn't put it but that it came to mind naturally.

    Transformation

    The day when
    a caterpillar is enlightened and
    stop ruining the beauty of a flower
    is the day when
    it starts transforming itself into
    an admirable butterfly.

    Amazing Grace

    Once upon a time,
    I presumed that to be strong
    as a violent cyclone was everything.
    Seeing that I was too adamant
    to sway even myself,
    now I'd rather be as soft
    as an autumn breeze,
    the amazing grace
    that lets all the trees
    lower their leaves
    in a natural and willing manner.

    You captured your thought well in this poem. I felt the power in the start and then the softness at the end. And I liked that.
