ON ARRIVAL
 
Where is the boat, asked the beauty
And what was your word as a reply
No boarding was what she heard
Nobody was attending to her
But the boat was not in yet
What was there
The eminence and the essence
Of a coming love
Waiting in waiting
Clouds were covering not only the air
Sorrow was embracing everything
Except being alive
Now you are aboard
Though on a life boat
To survive
In the sea of loneliness
Swimming is not the case
Though you would be a novice
In time your pain will go away
You never know what was left behind
You will find something different
Upon the arrival of your new identity.
 
 
THE FINEST PRIMROSE
 
So appealing in appearance
Its petals hide a heaven
Layers of those divine skies
Ready to invite you to a feast
To fly you on a magical carpet
 
In an instant the dew mixes
With the snowy sweat
The robbing touches feel the heat
The primrose flexes its muscles
To open up the gate of happiness
 
Caught and imprisoned in an excitement
Equal to the climax of a pleasing sentiment
Then you could not hold it in a long time
Where you cannot be yourself anymore
You would have no choice but to appreciate
That the special moment has arrived
 
An extreme fondness for the primrose becomes an issue
A candidate to become a constantly burning desire.
