Come fall in Love
My love finds a way to happiness
Lost my heart on the streets of Kaohsiung
Someone found my heart
She fed him, cared for him and save him always
Something attracting me towards those streets again
I found my heart sitting on the wooden table...Read More

Toward the end of a book,
we tend to speed up, 
in anticipation of the climatic finish. 

Yet sadly, 
the build-up...
was the part we savored, 
on the perfect path
to the right...
and everlasting

The beginning.

The speed of light
is exactly how fast
my heart sends;
every prayer, 
every good thought, 
every perfect wish! 

The bright candle between us, 
it is the sun itself. 
The solar wind fills the sails
of my forever ship, 
longing to journey...Read More

The Map Undrawn

Written in the snow, 
by angels...
made from the bodies,
of the innocent. 

The way to heaven... 
is seen, 
fleeting in its passing, 
like a dream. 

by the faithful.
by the hopeful, 
ever thankful.

His mercy!
and diligent
the remnant remain.

They are pure silver, 
and have no idea. 
They are humble and kind, 
pray for each other, 
and welcome strangers.

Yet polished or aged, 
vintage of freshly fired, 
the address is the same.

Slowly leaving things out, 
important and then, 
not so much. 

Angry people that believe 
they are slighted, 
or given less value, 
found wrong...
as those closer
get lost as well. 

Getting older, 
accidents or fate...
our memory, 
our remembrances,
our lives,

A subtle current,
a fierce expression,
of a gentle feeling, 
no longer held contained 
by any restraint. 
Not weak, as may be expected, 
but the very difference...
between life and death.

Rest of the night I could not sleep.
I was in severe pain.
I suffered alone.
Full world was asleep, while I was awake.

An aroma of Gardens
A rose peels back
to revel
an endless beauty,

Deep colors of Life,
A Symmetry of shapes,

An aroma of

This beautiful flower,

This Life balanced,
by a deeper grief,

A grief so deep,
Its roots can’t be seen,

For we know,

All that we have,
Must be given back,

Love borrowed,

December's here to end
another grand old year
bringing us happiness,
celebrating her reign-
filling the final days
with holiday magic.

Old turns into new-
time to disappear,
gifting a present
of seasonal joys
in holiday love.

Now a new year
says it is time-
yet sad to go,
to bid adieu.

Then I cry in silent corners unseen

Lifes' Mystery
Sitting here wandering why.
Life must be so cruel.
To play the game of give and take
And me turn out the fool.
To seek not find, to want never get.
Let me lose my mind, 
God let me win this bet.
