A Healthy Life Aria

who knows?
keep writing!
keep on rhyming!
enjoy your life!

who knows?
keep trying!
keep on moving!
sense your love!

who knows?
keep going!
keep on searching!
feel your energy!

who knows?
keep singing!
keep on dancing!
touch your aura!

who knows?
keep drawing!
keep on blushing!
shine your charm!

what a frozen Winter heart!
let me warm it for your beauty
what's the use of sharp looking?
we won't act it in a dark mood

wait, sweetheart
it's a moonlit night
an Eastern moon
is near our spirits here

who we are?
we are poets
what we do?
we paint words

how we live?
we beautify life
when we really enjoy?
if we redecorate rhymes

love songs comes
to irregular visions
to irresistible dreams
to crowned castles in heaven

we've a soul of gentle air
our distance hopes
our delicious synergies
melted at once into a nostalgic fog

let's rejoice in peace!
let fate smile upon us!
tender and beautiful blossoms
of my beloved plain, tree of love

may thunder, lightning, flood, and storms
never bother you, O dear oceanic hearts!
nor may you be profaned by blowing winds
or shade of a crisis on your turbulent activities

cheer to other!
sweeten to unknown!
smile for awhile!
kind for beloved!

variety to improve
harmony to share
freshness to explore
exhale, inhale to groove

show your love!
grow your confidence!
paint your balance!
spread your prayer!

much ado
about caring
precious style
in your own trail

once upon a time
in a twilight cell
ring your bell!
have a good time!

    Poets bring life to dead words
