Me Swims The Choppy Waters Of The Chinese Sea


The Asian waters washed over me
from the day I stood on this shore
a billion.three can't be wrong
just overpowering to me and the world
yet, with such powers of persuasion
there comes an optimism that Tao/Confucianism/Buddha
can do this thing right for the world
it has surely helped me
it drowned some old folly and ill fated notions
so that this Phoenix could rise from a China Sea
and explode across the sky like Chinese fireworks
in the parade of the dragon at the New Moon's year celebration

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
