Sunshine

I don’t care
If you’re in the seventh circle of hell
Or digging deeper

If you’re hurting distressed
Dying or dead already

So what
The Sun
Has abandoned us

Here in this dark cave
I will teach you
To make your own sunshine

Abyss

How am I supposed
To take care of
My daily chores

There’s a
Bottomless abyss

Right here in my
Living room

My dear
You always wanted
To go to space

Well

Space is nothing but a
Black bottomless void

Not just under your feet
But everywhere

Lost pilgrims

Gentle breeze 

Temple bell 

Mighty earthquake

We swallow a cloud 

Of incense smoke

It brings tears to our eyes

Tour guide 

Spewing out facts 

In shrieking voice

Old man calling 

His wife back home 

Girls taking selfies

We’re all 

Lost pilgrims

In search of 

What’s already there

Down the river

I met the most 

Unexpected friend

Here on the other 

Side of the globe

Every night 

I take a stroll 

Down the river

Every night 

He’s sitting on 

The same stone

Staring back right at me

Without a blink

With so much 

Deep understanding

Holy mountain

Teach me to
Stand strong and tall

Through typhoons cyclones
And collapse
Of common sense

Show me how to
Hug the Earth and
Set up a sturdy base there

So that I won’t topple
As I stretch out to the Heavens
Pushing way past my limits

Remind me
To always keep
My head up high

To raise above
Turbulent petty weather

To keep raising like this

Till I become
One with the Sky

Restless

Another restless night
Crescent Moon rocks gently
To the sound of temple bells

The Carnival is over
Chilly mist wrapped the city in a blanket
Inviting to lay our heads

I am so tired
–and yet

My heart wants to keep dancing
Just as if this was my last chance
To ever dance again

Torch

Whenever I dare
Too look you in the eye
It’s a car crash
My heart and pride
Both crumble into pieces
Till all that’s left is dust
Fireworks take off to the sky
Through the holes in my
Chest head and hands
I used to be so afraid of this
Till you said I’m a torch
Flame can do me no harm
