    Thanks, kiz, for your kind feedback. I'll keep posting though most of my writing are boring and meaningless. There's nothing to lose to keep writing. On the contrary, as least I have chances to use English and improve my lousy English once in a while.
    Have a wonderful Sunday to you.

    I think you neednīt worry about the quality of your poetry. It seems to me very delicate and unique.

    Lazy Sunday Night in Midsummer



    Feeling like a soulless dimwit,
    I can't think of anything
    that's emotional or enchanting.
    Is it because of the summer heat
    or the lazy Sunday night?
    I don't have the slightest idea myself.
    All I'm curious to figure out is~
    if a butterfly loses its exquisite colorful wings,
    is it still worthy of its name?
    Likewise,
    if a human being loses all the passion
    for aesthetics,
    what's the meaning
    of eating three meals a day?

    The Cicadas' Shrilling


    While the sun's sinking in the west,
    carelessly
    I walk to a mini park to stretch my legs.
    On hearing the cicadas' shrilling
    in full swing,
    somehow, I fall into great despair.
    Maybe,
    it's the lazy season, or maybe
    it's just the sentimental me.
    And then,
    there're little kids frolicking around
    like many a carefree puppy.
    They don't seem to be bothered a bit
    by the cicadas' lamenting~~
    lonely and melancholy as can be.
    How is it possible for them to know
    that I start fearing~~
    the pitch black night is going
    to take over this world sooner than later.

    Great imagery.
    You ponder the questions eloquently, Angli. Well done.
