    A Small Cozy Home

    In case
    you'd like to know
    the reason why
    I've never walked up to you
    and said I love you
    It's not because
    you're ordinary
    but because
    you're a most gorgeous rose
    I have no choice
    but to admire you
    and keep you forever
    at a long distance
    for I'm afraid
    I may fall heart and soul
    in love with you
    After all
    I'm just a humble man
    fond of a small cozy home
    better than
    a golden mansion

    Happiness Is So Easy

    On the outside
    it's been raining
    off and on
    for nearly a month
    On the inside
    I'm able to lie in the bed
    hide in the quilt
    and fantasize
    about the coming
    of warm sunny days
    when we
    friends from senior high and I
    can go on a trip
    back to our campus
    When thirsty
    we'll drink plain water
    when hungry
    we'll find
    a homey noodle shop
    order our noodles
    along with
    some side dishes
    and let loose a big slurp
    when time to dig in
    Happiness is so easy

    April Shower

    If you were caught
    in an April shower
    at the other side
    of the mountain
    while hurrying back home
    on this spring afternoon
    as I was
    don't feel dismal
    for before long
    your life will be enriched
    with many May flowers

    Rainy Season

    You sent me a message
    the other day
    wondering why
    I hadn't posted any poem
    for a long time
    Maybe
    you're now experiencing
    the joy of spring
    while irises are blooming
    like a rainbow carpet
    in your valley
    yet
    on the street
    outside my misty window
    I only see
    branches and leaves
    shaking and shivering
    in the rainy season

    Mayflower

    Unknowingly
    the grass is greening the field
    along the carefree river
    but why haven't I
    found any of your shadow
    Mayflower
    you know
    I need to get away from it all
    for a long while
    from the life of a trifle
    that I'm stuck in
    to reminisce alone
    about the good old days
    that might've gone
    far far away with your petals

    Sentimental in Mid-May

    How could I
    convince myself
    that spring is in the air
    since the falling leaves
    last autumn
    seem to be lingering
    by my window
    hand in hand
    with the cold rain
    and the chilly wind
    Perhaps
    a lonely cloud
    was born not to dance
    but to be sentimental
    and doomed
    to spend life alone
    while others
    are intoxicated
    by the delicate fragrance
    of May flowers

    Oblivious

    All day
    I've been racking my brain
    trying to remember
    what I was doing this time
    last year
    but in vain
    On second thought
    Why bother
    The trees are still green
    the birds still chirping
    and the breeze still young
    as last year
    The only difference
    is the gray hair~~
    it's simply growing
    relentlessly and eternally
    on me
    so what's the use
    of reminiscence
    If it adds up to more agony
    I'd rather choose
    to be oblivious
    of this dreamy journey

    A Gloomy Morning in Late Spring


    I never thought
    you'd have a gloomy morning
    in late spring
    or in early summer
    if the latter
    sounds more melodious
    to your ears
    and in no time
    you're wailing
    like a crying baby
    However
    the moment
    your tears run dry
    you'll surely be endowed
    with numerous May flowers
    in the meadow
    under a blue sky
    with clouds drifting by
    while I'll be still cowering
    in a dark corner
    like a ragged scarecrow
    forsaken by its maker

    I emphatize with this poem because here it is a gloomy rainy day in late Autumn.
    However I donīt recomend "wailing like a crying baby". It makes everything much worse.

    Thanks for stopping by and giving me this good advice. I'll think about it and revise it later.

    Hi,
    Please, donīt mind the comment, I was rather sad when I wrote it. And I thought I was talking to someone very young because of the avatar.

    Thanks for the response again, Danik.
    I appreciate people who give me feedback and I always take it seriously because it's as good as mirrors. From the mirrors, I have a chance to see clearly the flaws in my poems. As for my avatar, it was a picture of myself playing badminton a couple of years ago.

    Moth

    During the day
    I love to meditate
    on the holy verse
    feeling immensely complacent
    because
    nothing in this universe
    seems able to get me drunk
    I'm as good as a monk
    Come the evening
    without thinking
    I start dancing
    around a street light
    until deep into the night
