Korean blues crown of sonnets
Korean Blues Crown of Sonnets
I have been dealing? with Things Korean
?for almost 40 years now
dealing ?with a once exotic land?
now my second homeland
?first came to Korea?
In the Peace Corps in Korea
I ?went to Korea
to find the woman?
in search of the woman?
who haunted my dreams?
met the woman?
fell in love with the woman
who walked out my dreams?
In an land still exotic
In a land still exotic
?was a very exotic different land?
and even now decades latter
a new land? remains for most Americans?
still a strange land exotic
?but much more known land
?in the US due to K drama, K Pop,
Koreans? have become globally cool
but still exotic?
Many of my fellow Americans'
?may know a few people from Korea?a
and some have served or lived in Korea
?but to most of the us Americans
it remains over there still exotic?
a strange Asian exotic land
A strange Asian Exotic land?
I fell in love that exotic land?a
and now I spend half my time?l
Living Korean time?
half in the U.S. time?
and due to the corona time?
will be here for some time?
and well Korea
?no longer an exotic land?
as I am now just living in Korea?
my thoughts half Korean?
and even dream in Korean?
so be it near the end of my time?
I am back where I began
