Sketches From City - Poem by Jone Guo

1. ADDRESS

Carrying with me
The deepest affections
I start to look for you




2. SORROWS

Tiny flower petals
Scattered everywhere
Each one of them
Filled with blood
That light-purple




3. TOUCH

The sun descends
It rests on my shoulders

The sky melts




4. ROADS

A song is sung
It spreads to all directions






5. SPRING

A violin, so warm




6. CITY

Two people
All alone

Come together




7. POETRY

The sunlight, having traveled far and wide
Comes down into this human world




8. TREES

He breathes

His breath, spreading like roots
His eyes, piercing the darkness



9. FUTURE

Each year
At the Day of Pure Brightness
That same group
Will return to this suburb
Where tree branches just starts to sprout

They will sweep their own tombs


10. HOPE

A vast stretch of homeland
Slowly, unfolds itself:

Her fury
Her tears
Her fresh flowers
