    For Jasmine

    You're not so gorgeous
    as a red rose,
    but I love you
    none the less.
    While the whole world
    is rushing for Mary or gold,
    I still prefer to stay with you,
    not because
    you're most famous
    but because
    you're pure and pristine
    in essence
    giving off a faint fragrance
    on your own
    in an obscure garden,
    having long been forgotten
    by the world.

    If There's Something I Want to Say to You

    If this is the last picture
    I paint,
    it's not a wedding bouquet
    but the rosy color
    on your face.
    If this is the last verse
    I pen,
    it sure is your smile
    that's pure
    as a lily
    by the lake shore.
    If there's something
    I want to say
    to you
    on this Monday morning
    cold and blue,
    it's not how much I love you
    but how are you.

    A Few Tiny Jasmines

    Not capable of crafting
    a mountain
    of shiny yellow gold
    for the whole world
    to adore,
    I'm pretty used to eating
    my humble pie,
    and willing
    to grow
    in my homely garden
    a few tiny jasmines
    to share
    their sweet fragrance
    and my writing
    with friendly neighbors.

    In a Small Quiet Lane

    I see through my window pane
    all is quiet and calm
    in a small lane
    except for a few birds
    singing a psalm,
    praising the serenity of autumn
    in the afternoon.

    Golden Hair Aspens

    Oh!
    Summer Breeze,
    while you're humming,
    all the golden hair aspens
    start pulling up their skirts,
    coyly revealing their creamy long legs,
    and swaying gracefully
    to your intoxicating melody.
    You know
    I'm not a man of whisky
    but still tipsy
    enough to forget about sorrow.

    Shower Me with Your Love

    If, by accident,
    you love my poetry,
    a classical Chinese beauty,
    graceful and elegant,
    please shower me with your love,
    gracious as a flying dove.
    Your love is my Muse
    inspiring me to keep on crafting
    and sharing
    a world of fantasy,
    bewitching
    as a red poppy
    dancing in the breeze,
    so aesthetically appealing
    that you may forget to breathe.

    In the Season of Harvest

    When the orchard has grown
    beautifully mellow,
    all the blossoms are fully blown,
    ready to greet a shiny new tomorrow
    and leave behind our sorrow.
    When uttering even a word
    is too wordy,
    why not reap this apple memory
    silently with tears and smiles
    on our face
    in the season of harvest?

    To a Dandelion

    Is it fate
    or simply the wind
    that you become my best mate?
    Where have your folks gone?
    In the yard,
    you stand all alone.
    Neither a bard,
    nor a man of lion,
    be that as it may,
    I take a fancy to a dandelion.

    I love this one about a dandelion. Sometimes it's just the one person who is there.

    Asking a Breeze Where to Blow

    If you want to know
    where I came from
    or where I'm going to go,
    it's no different from
    asking a breeze where to blow.
    I'm nothing
    but a roaming bum,
    having no seeds of hope to plant
    on your fertile land,
    no roof to shelter you from the rain.
    The blue sky is my home,
    and all that I own.
    If you miss my poem,
    you might as well
    look for a daffodil
    that's dancing beside a mill.
    But there's no stair
    leading to my humble dwelling,
    no string
    tethering my wandering soul,
    for I'm anything
    but a kite.

    The Sunshine in Winter

    I love to take a stroll
    along a quiet country road
    to watch the winter sun
    shining softly,
    touching and caressing fondly
    each lovely face
    of the graceful small grass
    along a rivulet.
    And a breeze
    keeps pulling up the lush green skirts
    of the silent trees,
    as pretty as child brides,
    standing on the roadside.
    The serene paradise may be fleeting,
    yet this euphoric feeling
    and the rural beauty
    I'll treasure in my memory
    long enough to forget
    the next cold storm may hit
    in any minute.

    To Narcissus

    I wish one day
    I could somnambulate
    to the lake
    where you used to lie on the grass
    to peer inquiringly at an exquisite face
    on the surface
    of the clear water.
    Being a stargazer,
    I guess I'd also gaze
    for a long while,
    not at my own reflection,
    but at your enthralling reincarnation,
    the swaying daffodil
    beside an old windmill.
    If I could borrow a delightful petal
    from you
    to eclipse my constant blue,
    perhaps,
    I wouldn't consider
    plunging myself into the water.

    Soothing Sunshine in Icy January

    Your beauty
    is like the soothing sunshine
    in icy January,
    enthralling and sublime,
    but I dare not take off my clothing
    to reveal my true feeling,
    for I realize
    you're definitely not a blessing in disguise.
    If I expose this heart of amorous passion
    to your freezing inattention,
    I'll get frost bite
    in a short moment
    which can be as poignant
    as love bite.
