    Thanks, Buh4Bee, for the encouragement. Last night, it leaped to mind that I'm not a poet but a trash producing loser. I was wondering if I should keep painting graffiti or not.
    Really appreciate your kind words.

    Winter Drizzle


    If you wish me to be as honest
    as a mirror pond,
    I'd rather
    you dropped in on me
    when the twigs were budding.
    Nonetheless,
    you still make up your mind
    to come visiting
    this humble side of the fence
    where the grass is less green
    in the evening of early winter
    just when I least expect.
    If you showed up a bit earlier, say,
    in the season of petals scattering
    all over the path,
    we would go, hand in hand, for a stroll,
    all the way
    joy written on our face,
    to the woods
    to watch the leaves turning yellow.
    Without thinking twice,
    I put up an umbrella
    to keep out the rain and the icy wind,
    but ...
    how should I also find a way
    to keep out the everlasting melancholy
    in this season of dismay?

    For Cailin


    My cheeks flushed for a moment
    with embarrassment
    when I read what you said
    about my style of poetry~
    always so beautifully mellow,
    which brings to you
    a feeling of contentment~
    I'm too bashful to assume
    that my poems are entrancing
    as a dancing poppy,
    or the lily in the valley,
    but I'd prefer them to be
    anonymous little flowers
    always waiting by the roadside
    in the middle of nowhere,
    to soothe one or two
    weather-beaten lonely travelers
    once in a long while.

    That's why your poems are so enjoyable. For the lonely particularly! At least for me! Thanks for the read.

    If You Ever Wonder Why


    If you ever wonder why
    I haven't dropped by your mountain hut
    for a long while,
    carrying with me
    a guitar and a white daisy,
    and if you assume
    I'm afraid of the icy winds howling
    like ghosts and demons,
    or that
    the endless road is as bumpy as winding,
    you're as wrong as assuming
    jasmine's still blooming in November.
    Maybe, you can reveal your true colors
    and still assume
    it's romantic and charming
    to wear a fresh daisy in gray hair
    while playing the guitar,
    yet I'm just bashful as a leaf of mimosa.

    Thanks, Buh4Bee, for dropping by again and leaving the kind words for me, which are sure my spiritual food to keep on writing.

    Thanks, Danik, it's so wonderful to read your positive feedback. I'm glad too. I have nothing to lose~if there's no one care to read my graffiti, at least I'm improving my English.

    Yes, we're all lovely travelers in this world.

    For Fanai


    It's almost midnight
    on this side of the ocean.
    If you, all unknowingly, can't doze off,
    just as, for no good reason at all,
    the cold weather has been here to stay,
    why not get up and write a poem?
    If it is not touching and picturesque enough,
    why not hit the bed again
    and appeal to Venus for mercy
    in your dream?
    And, if you still can't fall asleep,
    try replacing your pillow
    with a book of poetry.

    Let the Rain Keep on Falling


    Let the rain keep on falling
    until our hearts grow mold.
    For no good reason at all,
    why must the sky be so sentimental?
    It's only the season
    when cypresses getting bald,
    once so lush green and tall,
    before wild geese fly southward,
    before our smiles get freezing cold.
    Let the rain keep on falling,
    all I need is
    a good and deep slumber
    in this ruthless winter.
    By the way,
    in case little birds are coming back
    and chirping again in the garden of early spring,
    you can save all the trouble
    of giving me a morning call.
    All I need is
    a long and peaceful slumber.
    Let the rain keep on falling.

    Red Apple on Your Face


    It's as conspicuous
    as a blue morning glory
    becoming falling petals of sorry
    the moment when the sun's setting,
    the moment when magpies no longer singing.
    Yet at the age of flowery youth,
    how should I know the truth?
    I was just a tender callow fellow.
    All I craved was the red apple
    shining on your face,
    and never thought twice
    whether it'd be shrinking or wrinkling
    in gloomy weather.
    Nevertheless, don't be suspicious
    that I'll leave you
    the day when swallows are migrating.
    Just as a moth keeps dancing
    around the flame of a candle
    without rhyme or reason,
    I'm more than willing to be with you
    this life and the next
    until you forget the meanings of blue.
