A Starry Night

Among those twinkling stars,
One just finds me and stares.
Among the many crowded people,
I look at the star through the water ripple.

As the night goes on and on,
The star uses its shine to don,
In order to hide from me,
As I disappear into the sea.

I wander how we will ever,
Again come to see each other,
By the night of this very river.

In a single star, I find memories.
In a single star, I find love.
In a single star, I find loneliness.
In a single star, I find respect.
In a single star, I find poetry.
In a single star, I find my mother, my only mother.

    Nice piece Tae Jun Cha~! Loved your personalization and imagery in this fine piece of poetry! My favorite line was "In a single star, I find my mother, my only mother." As this is just the tip of a mass of more poems that can make the reader FEEL your love for nature! Great job~ The only critique I have for you is to change the word WANDER to Wonder....wandering is walking around ...Wonder is to wonder how or wonder if etc.~This is easily corrected and will give a much better read~In kindness~;)
