    Reaching Nirvana

    Don't make fun of me
    if you see
    that I have this sudden fancy
    to grow the water lily
    in the late September
    when in the pond
    the water's getting as cool as a cucumber.
    Nonetheless,
    if I will get a chance,
    in July of next year,
    to meditate on a purple beauty
    which should emerge
    from a world of muddy filthy soils,
    I couldn't care less
    if it means my last summer.

    In Your Dream

    After the moon cake savoring,
    after Mid-Autumn Festival celebrating,
    there's nothing fancy
    but the full moon's waning.
    Since nothing
    is worth brewing mesmerizing poetry,
    I might as well hit the hay.
    Some people say,
    there's free ice cream
    in your dream,
    but most men prefer tender luscious abalone
    as I dream,
    especially when hungry
    yet can't afford to pay the money.

    Flowing like an Ancient River

    When breezes in late September
    begin coughing
    I feel like an ancient river
    so much so
    that it's time to get flowing,
    flowing far away to an uncharted place
    where to keep meandering
    and embrace
    a serene green meadow.
    You know,
    if you're happy
    I'll pluck you a yellow daylily.
    And if you don't laugh out loud,
    I'll pen a free verse or two
    on a white cloud.
    Please don't shed a dew or two
    because unfettered is my imagination,
    running wild like thick vegetation.

    Catching the Tail of Autumn

    If catching the tail of summer
    is as subtle
    as catching a floating rainbow bubble
    in sweet slumber,
    then let nature run its course
    and never feel remorse.
    Nonetheless,
    while weeping willows
    are losing leaves like widows
    shedding tears in late September,
    I'm not sure whether
    I should close that window,
    or simply forget about tomorrow.

    Wonderful poems... "If catching the tail of summer
    is as subtle
    as catching a floating rainbow bubble
    in sweet slumber," kindled my imagination

    Self-Reflection

    Isn't it refreshing
    to stare at a leaf budding
    in the season of seeding?
    Why must it turn to a rusty leaf,
    come the season of grief?
    I have this sudden impulse
    to go to a pond of water lilies
    not to appreciate
    but to wait
    until all good breezes
    terminate
    so as to watch my clear reflection
    mirrored in still water,
    instead of the distortion
    in the rippling water.

    Count My Blessings

    Since
    I'm just a small blade of grass,
    I humbly pray
    if only there's a dewdrop
    caressing my face
    when I wake up in the early morning
    every day.
    I'm not a sea otter,
    therefore,
    a lavish ocean of water
    won't save me from drowning
    but lead me to sighing
    one day.
