Sonnet 4 We Met On A Cross Road - Poem by Sophy Chen

— To Ruijie



I've searched you on web by all your key words
Thousands of times I failed with great sadness
By accident you appeared in my dream
Last night we met on our way to classroom

But I didn't know which University it was
It looks like around mountains, trees and cliffs
As if our departure we met on a cross road
With smile in vain at each other we looked

“Where are you going to? ” unnaturally I asked
“On my way to be a linguist” You said
“I'd like to be a poet” eagerly I said
With long hair dancing in the wind you nodded

Suddenly I was woken by women gossiping
Out side of window with some dogs barking

    The topic of this poem is definitely friendship but its meaning is better expressed by the word in the photo you chose, namely, FATE. This is not a poem which blithely assumes we can get what we want. It does just the opposite: it shows how even chance conspires with fate to keep us locked into a life we did not choose but must still live through. I have been reading traditional Chinese poems for fifty years, and your poem echoes a very famikiar theme of the final meeting, the parting of two friends. It is heart-breaking but so true to life.

    Enjoyable sonnet, dreams do bring people to mind while sleeping, fulfilling an unspoken need from living during the day. Wonderful poem, Sophy! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn. (Report) Reply

    Thanks for your comments RoseAnn,

    It's a real story that I wrote in this poem for I really could not find my friend and I found her on line again and again but I failed.
    In my poem I sometimes would like to write some real story but so many Chinese poets and critics think we should not tell real story in our poems so sometimes i am confused on this.

    Dreams are celestial gifts to human beings. One can see anything and derive happiness while in a dream. Rational or irrational, practical or impractical dreams are our good companions.More over they liberate the dreamer from their influence soon after his awakening. (Report) Reply
