    Sweet Memories

    You say
    how silly I am
    never to decline the striking colors
    and inviting aroma of roses
    though having been pricked by their thorns
    time after time!
    But I guess,
    it's you, as a matter of fact,
    that are absolutely miserable,
    and I really take pity on you.
    To my surprise,
    there has been lot of bitterness
    lying hidden in the depths of your mind
    simply because
    you were once barked at
    by some mean dogs.
    From then on,
    you never thought there might be
    sweet memories that were worth remembering
    in this quite pleasant universe.

    No Expectations


    When the smiling sun was sprinkling
    warmth and grace on the field this morning,
    everything was turning so pleasant and lush green.
    That really came as a surprise;
    Notwithstanding,
    I had no expectations for the coming
    of the most delightful season so soon
    because, only yesterday, it was still shivering cold.
    On a different note,
    whether there's a captivating daffodil
    or an unrestrained tempest waiting for me
    on the journey ahead,
    does it, in fact, make much difference anyway?
    Don't I have to keep my composure as usual,
    living every day peacefully,
    and sleeping every night soundly?

    Little Flower in the Alley

    Little flower in the alley,
    I'm sorry,
    but I have to bid you adieu.
    It's not that
    I can't appreciate you
    but that
    the small corner occasionally
    makes me blue.

    A Most Mesmerizing Poem

    Supposing spring is a poem,
    a most mesmerizing poem,
    then I won't bother
    about the tedious anatomy of beauty.
    All I need to do is relax
    and savor the most fragrant season
    while lying in the green grass
    and bathed in the gracious sunshine.

    Spring Landscape

    Perhaps,
    it's the lush green valley
    that's lying serenely in idyllic sunshine.
    Perhaps,
    it's the vibrant colored butterfly
    that's caught in an unexpected shower of petals.
    Perhaps,
    it's the leaves of an evergreen tree
    that's swaying gently in an enjoyable breeze.
    Perhaps,
    your spring landscape
    is made up of these wonders of beautiful nature.
    Nevertheless,
    you'll never know~
    without seeing you in the picture,
    the winter snow inside me will never thaw.

    After a Rich Meal


    After a rich meal,
    if you ask me how I feel,
    my eyelids are leaden
    with sheep and pain,
    and my body heavy
    as an overloaded airplane.
    Now that my muse has left me
    and vanished in a puff of smoke,
    is it not a silly joke
    that I still hope I can pen poetry
    and wish it would be ethereal
    as a fantastic fairy?

    Where Angels Fear to Tread



    I can't remember
    exactly when
    I no longer
    aspired to set off for cloud nine.
    You might mistakenly
    consider that I don't relish the feeling
    of sitting on a gold mine,
    but the plain truth is
    that I'm more afraid of falling,
    sooner than later,
    down from the heaven,
    so high and sublime.

    Grace from Above

    Not born with a silver spoon
    in my mouth,
    I dare not
    compare my humble life
    with that of prince Charming.
    If I do,
    I will be choked with rage.
    Nevertheless,
    I feel more at ease
    to be a dandelion or a weed,
    living in the middle of nowhere.
    Though neglected,
    once in a while,
    I feel blissfully gratified
    by a dewdrop, grace from above.

    Nothing Wrong


    You say,
    you dreamed of a lion and Armstrong
    yesterday and today.
    My pleasure to assure you~
    there's nothing wrong
    just as I, too,
    simply adore a blue lotus,
    entrancing and profound as a myosotis.

    Curling Wisp of Smoke


    Curling Wisp of Smoke,

    May I ask
    why it's so easy to fall for you
    and which way you're drifting away
    with my fickle inspiration?
    People warn me
    against chasing you,
    for it'll be futile
    as chasing a will-o'-the-wisp.
    If only my poetry would be ethereal
    and elegant as you.
    I won't feel regretful
    even though
    I have to spend my whole life.

    Shed Some Light


    Seeing
    a curling wisp of smoke,
    so elusive and ethereal,
    wafting
    elegantly in the air,
    should I or my wordy poetry
    go on a diet?

    Mosquito

    You're such a nuisance,
    not because you suck my blood
    when there isn't any flower bud,
    but because you remind me of my first love
    in fancy dress.
    I really don't mind
    she stole my heart,
    but can't forget
    those numerous sleepless nights
    you and she leave for me.

    Keep Worrying



    If worrying
    might prevent a delightful alpine gold
    from getting old,
    or stop your love from fading away,
    or protect your silky tresses from turning gray,
    then keep worrying.

    A Silly Goose


    It was a pity
    that I didn't get the hang
    of making peace
    in a pond full of geese.
    It didn't dawn on me
    that I was genuinely
    a silly goose
    until I woke up to the truth
    that I failed to dance gracefully
    like a swan.
    Laboring under the illusion
    that I was an elegant swan,
    I eventually
    cooked my own goose
    and paid a heavy price.

    Thanks, Tony, for your often encouragement. Well actually, writing English poetry is my way of practicing English. Otherwise, I have really few chances of using English.
    Nonsense Angli. Itís all subjective. You write over and over with no response and never prevents you or discourages your next post. You are heroic. I have the utmost respect for you.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.
