Han Min Ohn Poems
Acid and alkali
A little acidity not many tongues will detest Sometimes a sour taste, for a tongue, is best Too low of it and the tongue will be dissolved Not a single tongue will dare to get involved.
Haiku- A Water Droplet
A water droplet Rolling down along the wall Till it touches the floor.
Once in my dream I became a butterfly Over the flowers happily I flied Resting on a flower drank I its juice Shifting from one to another till belly was full
Right and Wrong
What appears right may have shadow of wrong Hidden deep under the righteous ground What appear wrong may still possess some light Covered under the thick cloak of blight
Voices from the Third World
World nowadays displays many extremes Some people well paid and others receive only a dim Well-paid guys get too much extra money to spare So they compete with the poors in buying not only the rare
Your mind is like water in a pond
Observe the water in a pond Keep it still and particles will sediment to ground Only then the surface becomes transparent and clear Our reflections we can view without a blur
The Cry of Africa (For famine stricken A...
Having nothing to eat they sit silently Resisting the alarming signal in their bellies Their bodies so thin and emaciated Their minds full of hunger and dilapidated
Knowledge and Wisdom
Knowledge is something you can get By parrot learning and cramming your head You can fill your head with something new every day If you memorize the thing you want in earnest way
Footprints on the beach here and there No one could guess which pairs went where Some were large and some were small Too many pairs to count them all.
Th lost thrill
Sitting in front of the old family game console Putting in the worn out cartridge intending to play Mario Mind flying back to about twenty five years ago When I was just a boy of five years of age or so.
Under the intense heat of the sun it blooms The chill of the night cannot cast a gloom The strong wind has no impact on its radiant glow Sandy ground cannot stop its constant grow.
Tyranny, if I have to say Is a kind of democracy in disarray In which a handful of people have Freedom of every aspect
The boy and the apple tree
Once there was a boy who used to play under an apple tree He played so happily that it was a joy to see As he grew old, he got bore of playing alone Toys and gadgets he desired to be his own
The future is in your hand
Once there was a little girl living in a village She wanted to find out what her future would reveal So she wondered to whom should she ask her future Finally got the idea that it must be her star

Acid and alkali
A little acidity not many tongues will detest
Sometimes a sour taste, for a tongue, is best
Too low of it and the tongue will be dissolved
Not a single tongue will dare to get involved.
A little alkalinity many tongues sometimes prefer
What it creates, is a taste we call bitter
Too high of it and the tongue will be corroded
Not a single tongue will dare to get eroded.
