I wrote the following four poems not only to convey diverse experiences of poetic awe, but also to experiment with following a rather rigid verse structure in English (my second language).
The first (“Sunsets”) was notably written in memory of sunsets over Paris and New York. The last (“♥“) was written for my girlfriend Lovewaves and is dedicated to her.
All the worlds I tried and failed to say;
When the sky drowns and the Sun flies away;
Of wilted sunsets always undone in the same horizon;
I will tell a sea of the brightest passion.
Lightness of flying thought;
Crossing the celestial expanse;
Reflecting what I wrought;
As I become trance;
Fade into infinite distance.
All Things Above the Moon
Above the blue sky and a white Moon;
Nothingness and stars that make us swoon;
Heed the timeless flow of illusion;
Amid the void, matter, light and motion.
That what we are;
So is this feeling;
That we now share.
