From the Treetop

From the Treetop

From the treetops

you can see the sky

if you decided to look up

and fly

 

from the treetops

you can see the fallen leaves

if you decide to look down

and jump

 

Fly or jump

we cannot stay at the treetops

we have to move on to march twenty (miles or days?)

for a new beginning

See You Soon!

See you soon!

Dying is being born

In a new form I agree

Old habits die hard they say

Old bodies die hard also

But my friends

We have to die with fear and trembling

Only to find the unknown with joy

When I die

Do not hold me

Let me go

I will wait for you on the other side

It is time for us to say

See you soon!

I love you!

I love you

I live without knowing the end of the story

I love without understanding the whole person

I read without learning all the points

I laugh without worrying about the message

I write without saying I love you. But I do love you.

I have a quality life

I have a Quality Life

Do I have a quality life?

Winter tree asks to the Winter wind.

You have no leaves, no fruits, no fun!

Wind replies. But you have life in you.

Just wait till the next spring.

 

Do I have a quantity life?

Winter wind asks to the Winter tree.

You have gone to the east, west, north, and south.

Are you still going? Can’t you just stay still for a moment?

Winter tree complained, asking the same questions already answered.

 

Trees are still standing there.

Winds are gone.

However, they have been together all the time.

I just do not know when they had this conversation.

Maybe acorns under the trees know the answer.

They always listen to the whispers between the living beings.

Shall We Dance?

Shall we dance?

I dance with you all

can you imagine us dancing together?

round round round

spin spin spin

until the earth calls us to lie down

 

we will still dance in spirit

then we can dance more freely

freed from those small shells

 

like the sunlight in spring

or the wind in summer storm

or the free fall of fallen leaves in autumn

or the snow flake in winter

we will dance with the Lord of the Dance

Shall we dance?

Thank You!

Thank you!

I paused while I raked the leaves

Many give thanks for the fruits

And even flowers

 

I paused to give thanks for the leaves

Who constantly breathed air

And received the sun and rain

Who endured all the storms and droughts

Now fallen and stamped on

Raked and gathered to be burnt

 

I remember all those leaves

Fallen ones

Nameless and many

My fathers and mothers

Brothers and sisters

Thank you!

Thank you!

I do know

I do know

 

I do not know how grass grows and gives me hope

I do not know how rainbow appears and make my heart run

I do not know how stars shine and wet my eyes

I do not know how acorns gather together and share stories

I do not know how cancers and leukemia come and steal our life

But I do know that one day, I will see a poem that make me move on.

And we will still live after death to meet again at home.
