    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.

    Rusty Wind Bell


    You said,
    you were a wind bell waiting for a breeze
    to produce a melodious tinkling,
    but you looked so rusty and ugly.
    Though I never judged a book by its cover,
    yet at first sight,
    your clothing really dispelled me.
    Not until I read your story,
    did I see you still own a heart of gold~~
    to help and protect the poor and the weak,
    you're never daunted
    when confronted with monstrous bullies
    in spite of the fact that
    you're no better than the poor and the weak.
    Yellow bells have always mesmerized me
    whenever I run across one,
    yet now to my mind,
    you're the most enthralling bell of all
    whether rusty or not.

    I liked that, Angli!
    Some good advice there, too.

    Youth Has Gone


    My youth has gone
    with the wistful spring dream,
    starting off like a blue morning glory,
    so romantic and intoxicating,
    yet fleeting like falling petals in the evening,
    so sentimental and gloomy,
    and ending up in extreme inner melancholy
    all life long.
    Therefore,
    it's meaningless to stay up late
    since there's no more a starry night
    to look forward to tonight.
