Oh, Intrepid Spirit,


You’re more than the common knight

That we read about in history books and fairy tales.

You’re the explorer that dares to go into the unknown,

The man that does the impossible despite the others’ envy

And the obstacles set to stop you from reaching the destination.


Oh, intrepid spirit, you prefer to get up

And soar into the sky when you fell down

Instead of pitying yourself like a coward,

Admitting defeat to your enemies’ delight.

What Am I Going To Write About?


The lake god got his hand out of his watery home.

Holding the magical ballpoint pen, he asks himself,

“What am I going to write about?”


The forest’s complaint about men’s destructive nature,

The patch of clear sky in the storm

That is a sign of hope to humanity,

Or that some waters are in fact the ancestors’ tears.


As the god ponders on the matter,

A beautiful voice sounds from the surface

And a maiden comes by the lake.

He stares at her like he was in a trance.


Her kind eyes mesmerized him,

Her voice gladdened his heart,

He wanted her so badly that he came closer.

She lets out a scream and runs fast into the forest.


“What went wrong?

I’m not that scary,” he said.

It took him seconds to realize

That it wasn’t him that scared her.


It was his hand that did it.

He forgot to rise to the surface as a whole.

Teary-eyed he sat on the desk made of stones

And wrote about the blunder that chased his love away.

A Weather Poem


The thunderstorm broke during nighttime,

But it didn’t wake me up from my sleep.

I was admiring the sunrise in the land of dreams.

The hardworking honeybee pollinating a lone bellflower

Reminded me about the responsibilities I have in life.

Even under the watchful eye of the evergreen,

I bravely walked on the long path.

Delighting my taste buds with blueberries,

And admiring the view are the best ways to spend the afternoon.

Reaching the beautiful lake, I realized,

How time flies when you’re having fun!

“Even if night falls,

Never forget that tomorrow is a new day,”

The fiery bird whispered in my ear

Before going down below the other side of the lakeside.

Another voice suddenly woke me from the sweet sleep.

While having breakfast,

My father told me that the weather forecast

Turned out to be true,

Our county had the heaviest rainfall last night.

Tears ran down my cheeks,

Thinking about how much suffering

The aftereffect of this natural disaster

Had brought to everyone.

The rainbow, however, was a sign of a new beginning

Just like the bird told me in my dream.
