BLUES

By Thanh Dinh

Heavenly clouds above me
So soft and serene
How I dream to be like thee
Careless and free and
floating in the
Blue

Powdery wings above me
So angelic and warm
Flapping and soaring and
Blowing leaves into
The
Autumn
Sky

Scorching father above me
So merciless and
Sour
Take back the hand
That ripped through my
Chest
Take back the hope
That misled me
Into
Living

Brown-black sand beneath
My feet
So rough yet so tender
Binding and closing
The life
Of
My
Son
