Autumn Inspiration (4) By Tu Fu Translated By Red Pine

Kuming lake was the jewel of the Han
Emperor Wu's banners appear before my eyes,
The Weaving Maid weaving in vain below the moon,
the stone whale shimmering in the autumn wind
Scudding black clouds of winds wept wild rice
drifting pink power from dry lotus pods,
but sky high passes are only for birds,
Rivers and marches are a fisherman's world.

quote from a book called Qian Jia Shi (One Thousand Poets Work)

Say Google

Every time
you get online,
you must pick
one web browser,
maybe firefox,
internet explorer,
or google chrome,
then you load websites,
read news,
or blogs,
you think of jungle,
or freshly baked bagel,
or colorful lego,
but always,
you need to
to make everything
don't you
"Google" ?

Haiku on Political Party Conventions

Jobs, cooperations,
Democratic party rings,
we can do better.
Bill Clinton, speaker,
Eloquent and experienced,
Still remains effective.
Father, daughter, wife,
Politicians' real samples,
Keep things interesting.
today, tomorrow,
people think and act a lot,
it's time for weekend.

Penates By Thomas Lanier Williams

Identities become confused
with chairs and rugs and such
when these for many years are used
to our recurrent touch...
A porcelain that's out of place,
The leaking of a pipe,
A ravel in a bit of lace,
or Melons over-ripe.
Can more disturb our consciousness
and cause us more dismay...
than maritime disasters or
Starvation in Cathay!

I Wish....Sunday Prompts

I wish to function as if I'm single,
Illustrate or discover knowledge
through stormy times, maybe harmless
ricks, it's human nature that
one strives for freedom and power,
Not necessarily drown in relational issues,
But just stand as independent unit,
of course, there is a child in all of us,
as far as my eyes can see,
men and women carry damaged souls,
but bound through common thread
within, we want ways leading to
security, satisfaction, and amity.
The process would not be easy...
Let's pray for sunny days, via sallow
ashes, with our minds full of lights,
hearts filled with wishful proposals.
