The dew is frozen.
It glitters on the ground like crystal,
Diamonds to those who see.
It brings an edge to the world,
As though everything’s in sharp focus.
So ephemeral, this frosty dew,
Gracing us only so long as it’s permitted.
Its cold beauty is breathtaking,
And demands silent reverence.
So why, then, do people find it
Nothing more than a nuisance,
And yet gripe when its life expires?
Beautiful even in death,
The dew blesses our sight with its grace,
Reminding us that every so often,
Silence must be kept,
So that the world may speak to our hearts.
Can you see the precious releases as they dissipate
Inviting ardent admiration from us all
Appeasing the beseeching eyes of so many of us here
In the scattered dispersing of their fall
Such luminous wonders sustained by minute gestures
Of clarity in their mystical opaque releases
Appearing at first glimpse to stream from above
As if from the floodgates of secret places
A bountiful acclaim can be seen in the new animation
Of the recipients of these precious releases
As they blissfully absorb new life into their essence
Pleasing our eyes, with a beauty that never ceases
I like to help others but its hard when they are set in their ways
I have no choice but to stay away I give it to god and pray
Not trying to change anyone but I worry
Id like to express my concerns
Not trying to hurt you
But help get rid of your pain
Im no better or trying to offend
Get through the struggle
Live and enjoy life
A cloudless night! Into sleep, the Sun goes,
Rousing the Moon into amorous thoughts,
Calm ‘n cool- perfect for love- an ambience
That breeds longings in leaves and grass.
Their moist desires condense into dews,
Roll with passion, hug and kiss the leaves;
And then, go limp, and droop the grass;
Then the Sun wakes ‘n the Moon recedes.
The golden shine and the morning breeze
Arouse all leaves to rise up and dance;
With love lost and failed, the sorry dews,
Hug and hold on to the tips of the blades.
Cling! Strive to hold on; hang on, oh dews!
Never to go off! To fall headlong! Alas!...
