At midnight

28 Jul

Only in dreams there are real darkness;
the darkness that provokes fear;
the darkness that makes me scared;
that true darkness.
Nothing is seen.

foreign taste

27 Jul

Dreaming is scary.
It may turn in vain any time.
The reality may come in and smash it anytime.
But don’t stop;
Don’t stop dreaming,
do not.

*

It must’d been a foreign taste
but somehow not, not any more;
it makes me cry, makes me sad
but I yearn for it
I long for the taste and the time.

24 Jul

In a song in the language I’m learning
it sings:
So many hopes I have in my heart……
I’d like to be fluent in the language
that can sing that.

In an air-conditioned cafe, on a hot night

17 Jul

The greens stretch out their branches
to the road, for more sun, more space-
that small bush, dense and full after the rainy season
is alive;
the hygrangea flowers falling apart.

*

Heat and humidity are the criteria
to remind me there strongly;
the memory comes back to my skin
in the morning, at day, at night…
it’s summer here.

*

Nothing tells me the truth,
but somewhere deep inside my soul
I know everything-
but she won’t tell me
and let me suffer.

*

I’m ready to fight.
I will be ready to fight
with radiation.
But my family, my children-
(in my dreamt future)
will you be?

*

People’re wandering outside
‘cos it’s a long weekend
and the heat produces the mood
somehow: a moody night.
I observe them from the second floor,
in a cafe.

A sunflower on the way

16 Jul

A tall sunflower
already leaning down.
The sunset;
it was the beautiful moment
and I didn’t have a camera.

*

Somewhere inside,
I always know
that things will only flow
to where they want to;
and I must only follow.
It’s just that I
would like to make sure, someone
understands me.

On a day of new challenge

13 Jul

When excitement rules,
sleep is hardly a matter.
The world shines with substances-
some substance!
I love it for what it is.

*

A cup and a saucer
as if made out of jade
shines with the apple scent
from chamomile tea poured in;
charms me.

*
Ripples on the chamomile surface
juggle up the world
the light balls like a movie
dance, dance… a chandelier!
My breath creates the world!

Another hot day

12 Jul

If the world ends tomorrow,
I shall call you right now;
but I’m not calling you now,
for I don’t know when
my world is going to end.
