Best Poem of Nim Lee

Sky: Air And Water

The wide blue yonder
above our head
seen but never reached
a pattern of air and water
the impossible dream
a trigger of imagination
the reach we can never grasp.
Is this a heaven?
Nothing lives there but our longings, our hopes
it’s a cold place
where each of us goes alone,
limitless, apparently,
unsubstantial, indeterminate.

I Want To Cry

I want to cry
I want to shout to yell to scream to howl
I want to fling my arms out to tear at my hair to beat my breast
to fall to the ground and kick my heels into mother earth
To flop about like a fish on the muddy ground
Ripping and soiling my clothes
Throwing myself about wildly madly

[Hata Bildir]
