    The Most Sincere Smiles

    It's as easy
    as you can see
    plenty
    of artificially beautiful faces
    in fancy dresses
    in a metropolitan city,
    but I firmly believe
    you have to leave
    for a humble village
    in a remote valley
    to look for the most sincere smiles
    which are worthy
    to go a thousand miles.

    Perchance

    Perchance,
    you adore the wonder
    of this world,
    and believe in the creator;
    you should also love the Lord.
    Perchance,
    you take a fancy
    to my poetry;
    then feel free
    to fall in love with the beauty
    but never me.
    My poetry may be
    as bewitching
    as the sunset glow
    in the evening,
    but you'll feel absolutely sorrow
    if you dear me
    because I have nothing
    for you
    to feed on at dawn
    except the sweet morning dew
    clinging to a dancing daisy.

    You're the Season

    I have many a reason
    to believe
    you're the winter season.
    Every so soften,
    when you're howling
    and roaring
    like a north wind,
    I make believe
    to be an old banyan,
    mercifully thick-skinned.
    Surrounded by stormy weather,
    I keep silent;
    it's not because I'm sulky
    but because I'm more lenient,
    for I still remember
    you used to be
    beautiful, graceful and tender
    like a spring breeze
    singing with ease
    and I, gleeful as a bee.

    When You Feel Sorrow

    When you feel sorrow,
    why not take a look at a sparrow?
    Easily satisfied with a few grains,
    it never brings pains
    to mother nature,
    let alone causing trouble.
    However,
    only few people
    treasure such a small creature,
    harmless and humble.
    It's really a shame,
    but who should take the blame?

    Intoxicating Scenery

    Supposing
    you're yearning
    for a big feast
    on the intoxicating scenery
    of snowflakes, gently
    swirling
    around plum blossoms
    in full swing,
    at least,
    you have to confront
    and suffer
    the cold front
    in the depth of winter
    in the first place.

    For AnonymousLou

    You say,
    you don't write much anymore,
    and you're not sure
    why.
    As a kind passer-by,
    I'd say,
    keep on dreaming
    and never
    give up crafting.
    Maybe, our poetry
    might look ugly and messy
    as a caterpillar
    yesterday.
    If only we hang on today
    and tomorrow,
    even school boys know
    a caterpillar
    turns pretty as an ethereal fairy
    some day.

    Let's Raise a Toast

    My dear friends,
    Let's say goodbye
    to it all,
    to the host and the ghost
    in the past year.
    Let's raise a toast
    to the new year
    because after tonight
    I fear
    not everything's all right.
    Let's congratulate,
    before it's too late,
    on growing older
    though
    not necessarily wiser.
    Nonetheless,
    who cares about being wiser
    as long as
    we're more gracious
    and kinder to one another.

    Marigold

    The winter mizzle
    might be ethereal
    and beautiful,
    yet more sentimental
    than a girl.
    Out of the blue,
    and I didn't have a clue,
    it stopped raining
    for a while
    on this freezing cold morning.
    I thought
    it'd be worth my while
    to harvest some vegetables
    in the garden,
    and I gave you my word.
    All of a sudden,
    I caught a glimpse
    of the orange marigolds there
    in full swing.
    They were so dazzling
    that I completely
    forgot about my promise
    and brought nothing
    but beauty charming home.
    Sorry,
    you may go hungry
    without greens tonight.
    Nevertheless,
    isn't it a blessing in disguise,
    for those fragrant flowers
    may put a smile
    on your face
    for more than one night?

    Thanks, Buh, for dropping by and the kind comment. We all need to keep struggling to improve the craft since none is perfect, nor is our poetry.

    Good for Nothing

    Having been a good for nothing
    all along the journey
    except for writing
    some little poetry,
    sometimes,
    I feel so superfluous
    like a butterfly
    invisible in the winter night sky
    that I want to cry.
    I don't wish
    my poetry to be showy
    as a dancing poppy,
    to be gorgeous
    as a red rose,
    or to be sweet
    as a purple violet.
    If only
    it could be a humble temple
    ever ready to accommodate people,
    homeless or hopeless,
    coming to draw solace.

    Kindness Is Always Right

    A pink peony
    will never turn a phony
    no matter
    the environment.
    If it's your wise argument,
    then I ought to
    know better than to
    persuade you
    into loving
    my favorite April showers
    which are sure to
    bring colorful May flowers.
    Seeing
    kindness is always right,
    I'll let you
    win the fight
    if you're yearning
    to prove to me
    that May flowers
    are less pretty and lovely
    than a pink peony.

    Fragrant Petal

    They say
    you're a fragrant petal,
    while, in a way,
    I'm a stink beetle.
    I ponder
    it'll definitely let you feel blue
    to recall the day
    when we bumped into
    each other.
    Seeing
    a fragrant petal
    turning into a lonely petal,
    I feel like crying.
    However,
    it's not sprinkling.

    You're a Pretty Poem

    You're a pretty poem,
    and I'd like to read you fondly
    while taking a roam
    in the serene morning
    when you're most enthralling.
    Come tomorrow
    and you're constantly
    forever changing
    like a kaleidoscope,
    I won't give up hope,
    for I know
    the only thing
    that you won't change
    is a deep purple blue sage.

    For a Girl I Care for Most

    Just as
    a hummingbird
    can hardly
    leave
    a golden honeysuckle,
    I naively believe
    in the previous life
    we were once
    man and wife.
    Although
    I'm not a hummingbird,
    I desire nothing
    but to see your life
    blooming
    joyfully
    and fragrantly
    as a honeysuckle.
