john tiong chunghoo

(Jan 21,1960 / NEW YORK)

Flowing along with the tide


if you wish to know
the heart of a land
go to its best river
and hear how it sings

if you wish to really know
how the people
of a land feel go to
its greatest river
and see how it flows

and if you wish to live
with the land go to
its holiest river and
make a vow to swim
to the tune of its tide

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
