Manonton Dalan Poems

street lights are still lit up
as she fills my coffee cup
with same greeting everyday
"how's your mom doing today? "

i know-
you won’t join me
beneath the moon
to taste ferments

more... i heard
your passion
pigmenting new desire
as sweet as grapes

certain stillness up above
harmony after raindrop
birds start singing again
trees dripping wet; clean

you always tell me
what’s broken yesterday
chanting of hateful memory
yet you never ask

i open my window
to let my soul
in search

… twirling key
on my hand
reminds me
of you, gone

shy cricket runs beneath the leaves
awe with moon searching for seeds
tiny antenae wiggles for safe passage
find frog’s sticky tongue on her legs

clouds mingling reflecting sun
it's bright and so great for fun
sun blocker news on this land
coco oil, orange peeling, grand

funneling rain by my window
knocks on my door i don't know
open curtain to watch the palms
they are still whatever comes

beautiful flower
from my garden
i poured all my love
to have a bloom

yes... i heard
your crispy voice
enough to give beats
to my resting senses

arm’s length away
i could see
threads on your dress
sweat on your legs

for a while
you let me
have scented kiss,
touch loose threads.

Fog is too thick I can hardly see
Follow the big truck along the way
Like a lifetime you can't foresee
Sooner I'll be where I should be

... there are few
who could unwind
and walk
the garden

for every thread that bond
is like a nerve to a flesh
crimson pump to the beat
marvel; moments keep

With a memory of a whale
Picking up groceries at will
Then patiently wait in line
Saw a pretty girl with her mom

sitting on cedar knees
my feet touching water
am trying to write yours
ripples keep on erasing

time for planting rice
paddies are water full
lady just breaking east
native music plays beat

The Best Poem Of Manonton Dalan

I Remember

street lights are still lit up
as she fills my coffee cup
with same greeting everyday
"how's your mom doing today? "
with a simple grin and "okay, "
she hands me bagle and jelly

pinching coins from my pocket
dropping a quarter on the carpet
i lean back to see where it lands
rub my back on somebody's hands
"excuse me, may i help you please? "
i turn around my lips is on her face

i blush, i feel my heart pounds
i touch her arm; whisper sorry
she waves her hand; smiles at me
yes, i give a last quick look at her
she's so pretty i could remember

What I read is a journal of a simple man who draws on the rhythms of daily living. Your written communication is naturally honest and poetic. It gives us a glimpse of the event and the emotion is re-created. Keep at it, G.
