Crescendo of Gratitude

It comforts your heart

Like an egg on a nest
With the warmth of its mother

It’ll thaw your soul

Like snow on a tree
Slowly melted by the sun

It’ll overflow your emotions with joy

Like a leprechaun’s pot
At the end of the rainbow

It will free you

Like an oppressed country
Constantly fought by their men

But may break you

Like a pirate who trades his life for a journey
Only to find an empty chest



I leaned my back on a tree
and slowly moved down to sit

We walked side by side on a greenfield
Butterflies and birds swooshing above our heads
You kissed my cheek and told me not to leave
But I am captivated by the beauty of the field
I followed a butterfly and started to walk away
Unconsciously, I summoned a mist
The mist grow thicker as I walked further away
I slowly felt the cold whisper of the wind
And noticed the mist around me
As I faced front again, the butterfly was nowhere
And I realized that I am lost
I looked back to find you but all I see is the dark and cold mist
I found a tree and leaned my back

As I am sitting beside that tree
I closed my eyes and tried to see
that happy field I once walked with you
I wiped my tears away and opened my eyes
There was no mist
There was no field
All I have is the tree on my back
And your picture in my hand

The Bridge

Once there were two cities connected by a small bridge.
The bridge is deteriorating which makes it difficult for one
city to reach the other.
Because the bridge no longer serves its purpose, the bigger
city initiated to burn the bridge.
The bridge collapsed as it was scorched by the fire.
Ashes were carried by the wind and started to circulate the
Years passed as the two cities continued to live their lives
without access with each other.
But the ashes of the bridge still haunts the bigger city by
memories of the smaller city from the past,
And dreams of the cities’ lives for the future.
Does the ashes only haunts the bigger city?
