Temple Poem by Cigeng Zhang


Rating: 4.5

I open my window
You, on my opposite side
Also open your window

My lips slightly open
Tasty like chardonnay
Cherries climb the treetops

The visitor is not you
A day in early June
Wrapped in rice dumpling

Straw rain cape is olive green
Cicadas not yet wake up
A lifelike status set on a roof
Which ditty comes first from afar?

'Tasty like chardonnay' - Loved it! 'A lifelike status set on a roof Which ditty comes first from afar? ' - A beautiful expression! Over all, a nice poem with a sweet fragrance that the readers' minds would waft far and near.

Thank you Bri for your sharing. The Temple, in my mind, has more meanings.

This is a Poem of Beginnings, and there are many more things beginning than I had imagined previously. You are like the director on a movie set cuing things for their moment of appearance. There a sequence that is observed so you are especially alert, not a trace of sleepiness, you're fully engaged in observing everything under the risen sun. Unlike a religious temple which involves withdrawing from the bustling world, your temple is that bustling world and you plunge into the thick of the activity.
