RISE AND DANCE IN A HAPPY MOOD!


Drizzle drizzle

sound of bird song
sound of wings

little bird...little bird

heart palpitates

open one’s heart

rise and dance
in a happy mood!

The stream flows without stopping

... chuckling...chuckling....

Ok...ok...so it's my second Chinese poem and I said I'd stop after the first one! Bear with as I learn! This for my friend LiLi and attempts to capture her lovely spirit in mere words...an imposible task even in English! She whose heart always rises up and dances in a happy mood! The first thing I ever learned in Chinese was 'I LIKE LILI! '
