    john, i´ll read more of your works, I really deserve it! you´re excellent!
    that part of blood means that I´m a woman at first place, but it may also mean a metaphor in terms of that biblical passage when Jesus had ben sweating blood under the Oliver Tree Mount... It´s can represent the pain felt by the humanity.
    Thanks for commenting! Warmly, Sílvia

Best Poem of john tiong chunghoo

Nature Is What You Dont See

nature is what we dont see

in the day, throws its fragrance
in the dead of night as lovers
hide in each others' bossoms
below the soft glare of the moon
centimetre by centimetre
it has inched forward to exhibit its
full blown majestry to the world
Nature is what we dont see
the shadow play master tilting ...
