    It will be back, I trust. And you will be writing about it.
    Thanks, Danik, for reading and your most uplifting words. I try hard to write beautiful pieces but I'm afraid that my muse is getting senile and dotted.

    Have Myself to Thank

    Who was to blame?
    When you were one and twenty
    and charming as a purple water lily,
    who wouldn't fall head over heels in love
    with your bewitching smile
    and became lame?
    After the thief of youth and beauty
    has stolen all of your colorful petals,
    I can't help ruminating~
    did I really fall in love with you
    or simply with a pretty flower?
    Seeing that you're not at all impeccable
    as I am not, either,
    I only have myself to thank.

    Two tumbleweeds


    It was by sheer chance
    that we ran across each other
    just like two tumbleweeds rolling together
    in a wasteland.
    Although I'm not exactly your prince charming,
    yet I'm sincere and keep smiling;
    therefore,
    please be kind and patient to me
    because it's for sure
    that we'll go our own way
    sooner or later.

    Iciness in Cold Winter

    While the wind's howling outside,
    you don't need to keep reminding me
    of those good old days
    we had in warmer weather.
    I do really remember and appreciate them,
    but I don't believe
    the summer sunshine is able
    to disperse this iciness in cold winter.
    In this bleak season,
    I've lost my primitive instinct--dreaming.

    Words of Gold


    Don't make fun of me
    because my face's wrinkly
    as the small dimples on the water
    made by a breeze.
    Please don't taunt me
    because my hair's grayer
    than all the snow on the trees
    in gloomy winter.
    Despite being melancholy
    as a lonesome caterpillar,
    I've come to treasure your honey
    just like the eternal verity.

    Forget about Me


    Forget about me
    just as I've forgotten
    all the stories of leaf shooting
    in many a spring,
    and I'll forget about you
    just as you've forgotten
    all the rumors of my returning
    from a far away journey.

    April Showers


    Don't ask me
    whether I'm in the mood for
    appreciating April showers
    after it's been raining relentlessly
    for a couple of days.
    What's more,
    if you, in a couple of weeks,
    may not bring me your graciousness,
    what's the use of
    a world of May flowers?

    Anonymous Tiny Flowers


    I can't believe
    I didn't stop to admire those small flowers
    that I came across this evening
    on my way to the park
    though I was captivated
    by their delightful colors
    at first sight.
    They were like shiny stars dotting the green grass
    of the meadow,
    which reminded me that it was April
    and a day ago
    there were showers after rain showers.
    With the day getting dark,
    I could only walk by,
    wishing
    some puppies would come running
    and cherish those adorable sweeties
    on my behalf.

    A Thing of Beauty

    I know now
    how painfully wrong I was
    to have believed in the saying
    "A thing of beauty is a joy forever."
    You'd never know
    how many times my heart was cut into pieces
    by a knife
    whenever I thought a poppy
    might lose all its bewitching petals sooner or later.
    How ironically true it is
    only through making up my mind
    never to leave you
    even though you've lost both rosy cheeks,
    can I emancipate myself
    from deep anguish
    and redeem my peaceful mind!

    Keep Smiling

    It was a long time ago,
    and I've forgotten the exact day
    when I stopped wishing~
    You be forever young and enchanting!
    Anyway,
    so long as you wear a big smile on your face
    today and tomorrow,
    I don't mind at all
    whether your hair's getting gray
    or there're countless wrinkles on your face.

    Save Some for the Winter

    My dear,

    Don't let tear drops
    roll down your aging face
    so easily
    when you see red petals
    falling off your rose in spring.
    Save some for the winter
    when your favorite cherry tree
    may lose all its leaves.
