POEM OF THE DAY
My Delight And Thy Delight
My delight and thy delight
Walking, like two angels white,
In the gardens of the night:
My desire and thy desire
Twining to a tongue of fire,
Leaping live, and laughing higher:
Thro' the everlasting strife
In the mystery of life.
Love, from whom the world begun,
Hath the secret of the sun.
Love can tell, and love alone,
Whence the million stars were strewn,
Why each atom knows its own,
How, in spite of woe and death,
Gay is life, and sweet is breath:
This he taught us, this we knew,
Happy in his science true,
Hand in hand as we stood
'Neath the shadows of the wood,
Heart to heart as we lay
In the dawning of the day.

A Dream Lies Dead
A dream lies dead here. May you softly go
Before this place, and turn away your eyes,
Nor seek to know the look of that which dies
Importuning Life for life. Walk not in woe,
But, for a little, let your step be slow.
And, of your mercy, be not sweetly wise
With words of hope and Spring and tenderer skies.
A dream lies dead; and this all mourners know:
Whenever one drifted petal leaves the tree-

Yes You Are
In dark nights
And gray days
You Are still loved
In so many ways
With the pain
And the tears
You Are still stronger

My Life On Earth
A day on earth is coming,
my time on earth will finish
my name wouldn't be forgotten
my good or bad will be gotten
Making A Plan At 21
The shutter of time had pictured her twenty one times
She wasn't going to recycle the naivete now that a rosy picture of her emerged.
The imprint of that year's photoshoot would live forever.
She was all polished up with a coat of lacquer-like make up, her heart undulating with anticipation of her first kiss.
One Thing I Know.
I know one thing I know
The thing I know I know
A path for me there lies
I must go
Art Of Eating
Art of eating Chinese way is amazing
To eat the noodles with two sticks that too quickly
is still a far difficult art even compared to their
martial art of Kungfu or Karate!
A Beautiful Gem Stone
In the beloved country of Vietnam there was a pond filled with many stones.
Some where just plain, others were beautiful and there were gem stones all mixed together.
One day I put my hand into the pond and touched many stones. One stone felt perfect in my palm, so I picked that stone. It was a diamond, a ruby, an emerald and a sapphire all in one. There wasn't another stone like it in the whole pond. So I named it Thủy

The Thought process
The Story Of The Moon
In not so distant past
The Moon was a young girl
Blessed with beauty and exuberance
She was the talk of town
Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, gave us music. Einstein, Curie, Fleming, gave us science, yet we still are creating war, famine, and gobal warming. Jesus gave us the way the truth and the life through him. We need more than ever to find a way to change the world, humankind will cease to be if we don't embrace love rather than hate.
My Hand Watch Asked Me
I turned the pages of a book
It bored me
Then I thought about you
Poetry flowed like river Nile
Stop Breaking Me
Good that way because I'm better off on my own,
Why, oh why.
Eternal God in time
And clothed in majesty
