The winds of disaster
blow solemn and cold,
sweeping away my heart

From out of the North,  
reclaiming my soul
—in torment to depart

Annual reunions,
he keeps coming back
to this school campus

like a restless dog
haunted by a place
where it vaguely recalls

having buried long ago
something truly

Autumn leaves fallen 
all over the Tsinghua Campus... 
Yellow, Orange, Red and Brown... 
Each has a story to tell... 
Story of Resistance... 
How long did it stand 
against wild air...

Innocence Skipped
The blonde playing hopscotch
had a tattoo

In a collision of eras,
her ponytail flew

As innocence skipped,
the ink started to run

A bastardized image
—of time overrun

Mountains on the Backyard
Mountains on the Backyard

This mordant assignment
Is my nemesis with physical insult-
My venerated assailant
Famed for making life difficult!

Civil War Marker: Vanderbilt Campus
History’s unpopular these days,
No one cares where Blues shot Greys,
Or where the tons of cannonballs were kept.
Union marker stands aloof, alone,
Monument of bronze and chisled stone,
And students giggle where the Northern troops once swept.

school shooting
Another school shooting
And this is the worst
Can somebody tell me
The cause of this curse

They say the shooter
A man with two guns
Came on the campus
To shoot anyone

What kind of demon
Would do something like this
Leave a whole town
In such emotional distress...

nowhere to go
I pause to my thoughts
Covered with a mist of sceptics 
Sweating in fear
Like caught in a crocodiles' mouth
Left on a cross road"with out a 
Nowhere to go 
Only the sound of silence
And the small voices of wind
An ants journey which never ends
A cockroach without a head...

Premium Member Big Stud-On-Campus
He was the big stud-on-campus, was Todd,

   Until he was nabbed smokin' somethin' odd!

      Coach booted him from the team.

         Up in smoke went Mommy's dream,

            Of Todd being on a pro-football squad!

he does not have
size, nor age either,
and makes no sound
no hills up and down
but it goes through virginal campus
as beauty's devil big-head fool!

it really is 
a year
child, or boy
ah, very well invisible
no style

do not know
they can live so
watch it
love it
and still wondering it.

Just a Soul
Just a soul without an owner
A drifted mystic persona 
A body slipped into a coma 

Art is the creation
A dreams realisation
An ideas preservation

Art without a canvas 
An address-less campus 
A globe without an atlas

A printer with no toner 
An upper without a lower
Just a soul without an owner

At The School Campus
J-ust let the woes wane, 
A-fter the Saturday night; 
N-ew dawn has broken, 
E-rasing the twilight.

A-llow the thrill to come, 
S-unday fifth February; 
T-o finish the heartache, 
E-nding the long misery.
J-ust go home now, 
A-s it's a two-day hiatus; 
D-on't celebrate your birth
A-t the school campus....

I have some seeds,
in my box,
precious seeds
when I plant them,
if I plant them,
could make 
the whole world

But for now
they remain
in my box
my decree.

Slow and steady I advance
Observing all on the campus
A strange circle is circling
Some passing, some following and some starting, 

Life is from life coming
Life is from element leaving
Staying life in element is lively
Leaving life from element is deadly, 

Life containing element it is
Element departing life it is....

Andrea Pozzo used the quadratura technique
but innovatively gave it a tweak
Creating a 3d space upon the flat

                   God administers with equality for all in His independent law
                   providing equal protection for all without any discrimination
                                human beings try to follow that rule but

I have done the worst
The worst I have seen
The unspeakable I have said
I have behold the 
Nakedness of the sacred
Who are the sacred?
Them, the Principalities on campus
Sacrilege became my other name
To whom did I commit this sacrilege?
Yet, all are of no consequence.

Falling Classrooms
Falling classrooms
are a laboratory of learning
cheer your nation with one heart
for the generosity
of poorly trained teachers
to make you doubt all ideas
Poor library and resources
challenge your search for knowledge
Poor facilities in the campus
train observation skills
Lack of textbooks
force you learn naturally
by yourself

Timeless Flowers
I live upon a campus  
Where time does not exist 
The clock ages students
But some things can resist 

Such the flowers that are here
They do not grow or decay
They seem to never know
Of the year nor the day

They are planted fully grown
They only live, they never die
And when their beauty is planted
They are planted with their lie

Premium Member Death by Oppenheimer
For knowledge and wisdom, I glean:
     geometry, physics, science,
philosophy, and tomes umpteen!
     In search of shrewd intelligence,
I forsake college's campus scene;
     and pursue art's magnificence,

spinning rhymes on the wheel and loom,
     and tapestry, of the rhymer
than idle in a dull classroom;
     wishing for death by Oppenheimer.

A man of many parts
He is a man of many parts;
Not once not twice topping The Charts,
Even at throws of A Drunk’s Darts
And easy picking of noiseless farts …

In their party, a top notcher, 
On campus, discussed lecturer,
In some property, a poacher, 
In some clinic, Satan’s butcher,
Amidst women, Adventurer …

Indeed, A Man of many parts,
Who might soon dare horse-driven carts!
