    In honor of the Chinese, hosts of the 2008 Olympic games.


    Self Portrait
    by Hai Zi
    translated from the Chinese by Ye Chun


    The mirror is a bowl
    on the table
    My face
    is the potato in the bowl
    Growing out of the field
    these warm bones

    Wordsmith




    He crafts the finest ever made

    soft speakings of verse and prose

    delicately hammered like finest gold

    each fragile link formed and forged

    by mind and heart with love and and woe

    Words together joined in finest beauty

    birth shimmering chains of of golden thought

    with pauses hung 'tween glimmering links

    like iridescent shimmering pearls

    Deep hued gems dripped from tongue

    dance in jeweled and sparkling splendor

    to decorate this work of art

    hammered from the wordsmith's heart

    Fuffy pillows

    I crawled from my bed

    Unaware of time.

    No concern of mine.

    Fluffy pillows left behind.

    I clutched my drink from the night stand.

    My only thought,

    It's still full, I think I'll take a pill.

    Instead, I walk out of my comfy confines

    Through the rooms I float.

    Loving hand long since gone.

    I approach my throne.

    I sit and pour a cup of lukewarm coffee left behind.

    Maybe this will help, I query in my mind.

    I guess time tics by me silently and slowly.

    I pick up a book, a flicker of thought, then away the thought flees.

    All thoughts fade.

    I sit and rock.

    Dead eyes ahead, still with empty head.

    I find myself once again in my bed.

    Fluffy pillows beneath my head.

    .

    One way to improve ones' poetry is to exspand ones' vocabulary. Understanding their meanings and how to use them and spelling is important for sure. Wish this site had a spell check. Helps so we don't have to cont. go and edit them. You think you have all the flaws covered, and wammo! There is another blooper! LOL
