    Coming Back Home

    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 spring
    though it's still wet and freezing
    cold outside
    I hear the howling
    and hope it's not you're 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

    In the Season of Harvest

    When love has become sweet and ripe
    overwhelmingly pleasant
    even a word is too redundant

    Why not reap this apple memory
    with tears and smiles
    on our faces
    in the season of harvest

    Forget Me Not

    Your innocent smile was a forget-me-not
    in full swing
    I fell for last spring
    missing the faint fragrance you sent off
    in the air
    I kept growing white hair

    But I think
    it doesn't really matter now
    for in every petal of a blue forget-me-not
    I see a smile I pine for a lot

    Poems in My Garden

    Were poems planted like blossoms in my garden
    then I should rejoice to see numerous bees and butterflies
    like cheerful lasses
    come flying to collect sweet nectar in the morning
    and turn it into honey of blissfulness

    Come evening
    I shall go back home with jaunty steps
    smiles written all over my face

    In My Sorrow

    When spotting a gorgeous rose
    unfurling in a pile of stinky manure
    I feel a most fragrant iris
    starting to grow
    in my sorrow

    You're Crying Again

    In the morning
    you were still beaming
    brightly like the sunlight in July

    All of a sudden
    gloomy clouds are flung everywhere
    concealing my azure sky
    tears pouring down like the thundershower
    in the afternoon
    in summer

    Walking alone in the street
    listening to the rhythm of rain you bring
    I'm not scared of your lightening or thundering
    let alone get dripping wet

    For I'm sure
    the minute your tears run dry
    is the minute I'm about to sample
    the most calming rainbow
    on your face

    A Small Flower Growing in a Sidewalk Crack

    Walking on a sidewalk
    I caught a glimpse of a yellow flower
    smiling quietly in a crack

    I felt so cheerful
    that I forgot where I was heading
    I stopped to ask about her name
    though I realized it didn't make any sense

    With or without a name
    she is still the same elegance
    giving off fragrance
    none the less

    To Bougainvillia

    You're quivering outside
    unaccompanied
    in the early morning rain

    The purple corsages you wear
    catch and open my drowsy eyes
    in the cold air

    Your green blouse is swinging
    in the autumn breeze
    intoxicating
    and tugging at my heartstrings

    I've got a strange feeling
    we seem to have made a promise
    ages and ages ago

    To meet each other once more
    someday somewhere somehow

    I Should Wear a Smile

    A thundershower woke me up
    early this morning

    Summer heat has finally given way to autumn chill
    I keep telling myself I should wear a smile
    on my face
    especially when birds are still singing
    and girls are still flowering

    Do you happen to see mine in your place
    I'm able to walk in the rain without an umbrella
    but I don't think I can manage to go out
    without a smile

    For Nigella

    My dear Nigella
    You're from an exotic land
    more mysterious than your misty name

    Helen might be worth a thousand words
    yet I can't find words
    to depict your elegance
    which is sure to humble all the lasses
    on this land

    When you grace my dreamland
    my world turns into love in a fanciful plain
    dripping with soothing rain

    Please
    don't let the phone ring in the morning
    when someone is still dreaming

    A Happy Encounter

    Last summer
    we came across each other
    like a gentle wind
    wafting across a floral field

    A happy encounter
    left behind
    beautiful memories
    like flower petals scattering
    in the field

    You said then
    they were your sorrowful tears
    in parting

    Now I regret to say
    they were more like my wistful sighs
    when grieving

    A True Love of Mine

    And you're a shepherd girl
    from the exotic land of fresh grass
    I'm a jolly cloud
    wandering from a Far East ancient town

    While floating high above
    I catch a glimpse of a buttercup
    sweet as your smile in the meadow

    How I wish to be a white lamb
    to be able to rest my head upon your lap
    to let your small whip
    fall gently like raindrops on my body

    Yet I know I'm fated
    to roam without a destination
    it's clear as the water flowing in a brook

    When you're counting your sheep at sunset
    you're sure to miss me

    And if you never give up calling my name
    even in the dream
    then you'll be a true love of mine

    My First Parody for JerryBaldy

    The way you write your parody really
    cracks up my belly
    I've been wondering why you think of the pope
    every time you come
    instead of Mary or Sharry

    Whether you're baldy or not
    it doesn't really
    matter for you're always happy go lucky

    And Sharry is visiting us in the autumn breeze
    her rosy cheeks are sweet as a pink cherry

    If you feel really hungry
    I won't pinch any of my penny
    to see you're all smiley

    This Clunker

    This old clunker of mine
    is still perfectly fine

    Every part looks young as green corn
    and buzzes loudly as a vibrant hornet
    except for the horn

    You Don't Have to Utter a Word

    You don't have to utter a word,
    and I know you're poetic and romantic
    as an autumn breeze.
    Whenever you visit,
    you paint my world yellow and purple.

    But I hate to admit
    you're a bit sentimental!
    The boundless blue sky you bring,
    along with those moody clouds,
    is something I can never obliterate easily
    from my memory!
