Thursday Poets Rally Week 90, Nutrition, Expansion of Poetics, and”Tang” poem

the season is fair

musical notes fills New York time square

english poetry has been well spread

poets have increased confidence, I dare

while we wonder about and write a lot

we feel the urge to give our free flow a hault

which means some pondering, some researches

which is why I choose to sit, read, and maybe travel

“Tang” poets come near in spirit

we hear a child cry the fame of Sikong Shu (司空曙, 720–790)

we hear an adult reciting a poem by Du Xunhe (杜荀鹤)

i giggle a little

assuming some true and ancient poems in Chicago Sun Times

that eric and that aaron

they keep a watchful eye

making a trip tense…

why do they think of a good company far?

they wish to be included in some fresh food dining

too bad that Pizza Hut,  Ihop, ABC store, and Canes got quiet some people in them

and mark, anderson, barron, fredrick, alex, lois, robin, anne, amelia

I have fun observing some

knowing great folks from Shenzhen, Tulane, and Xingjiang

a feature, story by optimism soul

Her eensy-weensy fingers folded the paper into a triangle, but she adverted it as a kite.
Yes, imperfections are endearing especially when it’s is done by tikes.
Boooom….” a sound blared.

Squinting her eyes, she sat down abruptly by closing her ears.

Hahaha.. it’s just a cracker” , I japed taking her into my arms.

I miss my family ..Tears sloughing, she whispered Looking into my eyes.


My smile scrammed.

I miss my mom, my dad, my little brother.. she continued.
My heart dethroned seeing her in tears..
I kissed her cheeks and embraced her.
You are happy with your family but I never was ! I wanna go back to my mom .. Please.. she hollered.

Pointing to the perpetual sky, “There they are..” I averred.

“Don’t worry, I’m safe now” she scrabbled on the kite and let the yarn free to reach her family !

Land, Rivers .. even the oceans carved up .. I thanked God for the unassailable sky !


#Genocide an explainable pain !
