    But you have a very good command of the language. Poetry demands a very sophisticated command of language. Where did you learn English?

    Hahaha ,,, thanks, Danik, for the kind praise which made my day. I learned English first in school simply for the purpose of getting good grades. Later, as soon as we have access to the internet, I learn it from the internet and the English forums. It's really ridiculous we're good at grammar and reading but bad at speaking and listening. By the way, what does Danik mean in German?

    Fire and Fury

    I feel remorse
    after summer days of fire and fury
    have scared numerous people away
    from my roselle orchard,
    which is now bearing well.
    Maybe
    if, in time,
    I turn myself into a cool autumn breeze,
    they'll come back sooner than later.
    Better still,
    if, in the first place.
    I could've run my life well,
    I'd be happy now
    without those regrettable days.
    On second thought,
    had it not been for those days,
    I wonder
    whether or not I'd really appreciate
    those sweet hard-won fruits.

    It doesn´t mean anything. It is just a combination of letters.

    I think poems are also fruits of labor.

    Could my poems be viewed as sweet fruits to you? If yes, why so?

    Seeing
    how graceful and flexible the weeping willow is
    when swaying with the wind,
    I start melting
    and feeling tired of being obstinate
    as a rock all my life.
    How well put, I love this little poem!

    I was making an analogy between those lines "whether or not I'd really appreciate
    those sweet hard-won fruits" and poetry itself.

    Autumn Again

    Again and again,
    I've kept waking up to a feeling
    of déjà vu,
    so peaceful, calm, serene and relaxing
    that I can't help thinking of you.
    Like a long lost childhood sweetheart,
    you've eventually
    come back to stay with me.
    Notwithstanding,
    is it fair
    that you've remained ethereal
    since time immemorial
    while my unkempt hair
    is getting grayer than the winter sky?

    Thanks, kiz, for your uplifting feedback. As long as there're people who love my poetry, it's worth writing more.

    For My Kind Friends

    My kind friends,

    You'll never know
    how ecstatic I feel
    whenever I read
    your encouraging comments on my writings!
    "Your poems read beautifully in English,"
    "Continue to enjoy the charm found in your atmospheric poetry,"
    "Always love your poetry," and so on.
    Your most uplifting words have inspired me
    to pen more verses,
    hopefully, to entertain a bit
    both your mind and your soul.
    Since all the flowers have gone with the summer wind;
    in addition,
    my muse is still on cloud nine,
    I'm afraid
    I'm no longer capable of crafting
    anything enthralling tonight.
    Nonetheless,
    if you're willing to open your heart
    as well as your window,
    there're still cool autumn breezes to relish
    before sleeping tight.
