    It's Too Late Now

    I should've told you
    last summer
    in person
    how beautiful
    the pink water lily was
    while shyly smiling
    in the sunshine
    It's too late now
    for there's nothing
    but icy cold winds and rain
    outside
    over the pond
    Maybe
    you'll think
    there will always be
    plenty more new blossoms
    come next spring
    but I regret to tell you
    they belong to
    the next generation
    not us

    Coming Back Home~~Revised

    When I left you
    I pretended
    I didn't care about you
    anymore
    so that you'd miss me
    no more
    Now it's a brand new year
    yet it's still wet
    and freezing cold outside
    I hear the howling
    and hope it's not you
    that are crying
    I'm coming back home
    from a long journey
    not to tell you
    many a story
    but to see
    if you've found
    your own rose garden

    When Summer Was Here

    When summer
    was here
    I was fed up
    with its fervency
    as well as
    your passion
    Now you're gone
    with its warmth
    I'm starting
    to miss
    the sunshine
    on your
    rosy cheeks

    It's Drizzling Again

    It's drizzling again
    and I'm thinking of you
    thinking of the silky tresses
    floating in the air
    conjuring up a paradise
    in the misty rain
    on this autumn night
    I'm eager to be a street lamp
    waiting ...
    ever waiting for you
    to stroll by
    to reflect your grace
    on each raindrop
    on my face
    If you happen to see me
    wobbling and ...
    don't blame the gusty winds
    or the whisky
    for it's your charms
    that leave me drunk
    over and over again

    I Wrote a Poem for You~~Revised

    I wrote a poem
    for you
    but I didn't send it
    though
    still kept in a jar
    beside a bunch
    of purple lavender
    You live half a world away
    yet you should've read
    those words
    by now
    for they were
    from the depth
    of my soul

    Crying ...

    Crying ...
    the moment
    I came into this world
    I was crying ...
    When your smile
    was here to humble
    all the May flowers
    I was crying ...
    for I was worrying ...
    it'd disappear
    sooner than later
    Now you've drifted
    far far away
    I'm crying ...
    at the edge of the earth
    like a cicada
    facing an empty stage
    I'm crying ...
    Perhaps one day
    when I stop crying
    it'll be the day
    you start crying ...

    Forget Me Not

    Your innocent smile
    was a forget-me-not
    in full swing
    that I fell for last spring
    Missing the faint fragrance
    you sent off in the air
    I kept wasting away
    and my hair turning gray
    But I guess
    it doesn't really matter now
    for on every petal
    of a blue forget-me-not
    I see a smile
    for which I have always
    had a soft spot

    This Trip

    Ahead of me
    only birds' chirping
    behind me
    autumn's gently breathing
    scattered on this shady path
    were a few blurry footprints
    like missing pages
    of some unread stories
    My mind was more cloudy
    than the evening glow
    in the western sky
    and my feet soft as a jelly
    Longing for a rest
    how I envy
    those little birds
    perching comfortably
    in a cozy nest nearby
    Perhaps
    I should sit in a pavilion
    for a while
    waiting for the cicadas
    to play their finale
    for the maple leaves
    to turn yellow and float
    like falling snowflakes
    Perhaps
    sooner or later
    spring will grace this land
    again

    The Fair Lady at Yuletide

    One layer after another
    the fancy clothes she puts on
    are more than sufficient
    to veil the damage
    time has caused
    to her withering body
    and to pass her off
    as a bunch of tulips
    at yuletide
    Nevertheless
    who knows
    in the season
    of flowers and bees
    she did humble many
    a butterfly
    simply in her birthday suit

    Silent Night

    Thank Goodness
    on the silent night
    I don't have to
    stay out working hard
    with a view to
    winning the world
    as the howling wind does
    on the outside
    On the peaceful night
    I feel divinely blissful
    on the inside
    for I still own
    a humble cozy room
    with a warm bed
    where to hide away
    from the cold weather
    Looking out
    the transparent window
    through the darkness
    I'm quite certain
    I won't get lost again
    though there isn't
    a single visible star
    in the night sky

    Hibernation


    As the night
    isn't young any longer
    and the temperature
    feels like dropping below zero
    It's hard to overcome
    the temptation
    to climb into bed
    curl up in a ball
    and pull up the covers
    over the head
    Lying in bed
    warm and cozy
    I couldn't help
    fantasizing
    I'm not much different from
    an insignificant creature
    hibernating in its lair
    I bet
    it couldn't care less
    whether the earth
    is still spinning
    let alone
    whether there are wars
    in the distance
    as long as it's peaceful
    here and now

    Once Upon a Summer

    Remember
    once upon a summer
    you walked across my quiet path
    like a gentle breeze
    wafting across a wintry land
    A happy encounter
    left behind
    those unforgettable beautiful memories
    like flower petals scattering
    in the spring field
    You said then
    they were your sorrowful tears
    when parting
    Now I'm regretting to say
    they're more like my wistful sighs
    when grieving

    Mild Weather


    Mild weather
    brings out a genuine smile
    as good as a sweet daffodil
    on your face
    so would you consider
    stopping this cold spell
    for a little while
    If you keep snarling
    growling and swirling
    like a winter tornado
    how could I
    take off my clothes
    reveal my sincere heart
    and embrace an iceberg
    passionately
    as though
    there were no tomorrow

    Love Me Too~~Revised

    Just as
    you love the little birds
    flying in the blue sky
    you should love
    the ancient sky too
    Just as
    you love the green leaves
    of an oak tree
    you should love
    the old oak tree too
    Likewise
    if unfortunately
    you happen to love
    the atmospheric poetry
    of a senior poet
    you have no choice but
    to love me too

    For Sara~~Revised

    Let's take a walk
    if you please
    at the beach
    at the first streak of sunlight
    and throw a glance
    at those hermit crabs
    that're scurrying across the sand
    by the boundless immemorial ocean
    leaving only a few traces
    erased in no time
    by the small hands of waves
    along with our footprints
    In the distance
    there may loom a ship
    carrying our dream and hope
    as always
    at the mercy of a pending tempest
    If you please
    let's take our time
    and stroll as long as you're happy
    maybe till the sun
    forgets to sink in the west
    and then let's relish
    the most fantastic moment
    in the evening
    if you could ignore the seagulls
    longing to fly home
    wailing and squawking
