Blossom - Poem by Catherine Yen

My passion
Will burn you
Like a naked night
Swallowing the stars
Hopping the chest
Swimming the boat bounced on the fermented wave
Every inch of the unrestrained flow of nerve
Effuse the honey
Falling from the fingertips

Galloping the mighty charger
Carrying the thousand armed forces soft as the silk thread
The breath of bottle wine you Dionysus released
Wandering in the lips
When pair eyes meet
Reflecting the mirror twin
Spring wind induced the rising moon on the sea
Like Donae under the golden rain
Entangled the earth
Cracked and stretched the branches
Lily blooms its heat in the head

A poise of bowing down
You gently open two door leafs
Devout as a monk
Fervent as a virgin
Looking to the last and the initial self
Grasping the colors of cracked cardamom
In a call of love
In a split of love

    I here hear a clang of true poem of love
    Like a naked night
    Swallowing the stars
    Hopping the chest
    Swimming the boat bounced on the fermented wave
    Every inch of the unrestrained flow of nerve
    Effuse the honey
    Falling from the fingertips
