Poetry

Five Micro Poems

Sometimes at home, the wind in the night

becomes a messenger.

The road outside is thundering.

The Voice of the Tree

 

The wind is the road.

It passes through me.

No Less Than A Person

 

I simply looked at the roads, and they aligned.

The roads wept.

I gave them my eyes.

It is summer, Emptiness is traveling.

She stops at lit up places, loving the faraway.

It desires her too.

The high leaves piercingly flash.
