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.

It Is Not Fair

It is not fair
that I am beautiful
that I am rich
that I am clever
that I am lucky
that I am loved
that I am healthy
that I have a warm house in winter, nice food to eat every day, that my garden blooms with flowers and is full of birdsong.

[Hata Bildir]
