Lion
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
Manes sneaks!

Where is the king?

King stalks!

Sneaks quietly like a slow breeze.

The wind dies with a big roar.

Love is a strong cat.

The lion endures like a hot jungle.

Strong,  giant quietly fights a rifle's bullet.

Wow, courage!

Roars die!

King falls like a brave soldier...

Crush
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
You always look past me,
I'm dancing right here,
Why can't you see me?

You never look at me!
Always, I'm dreaming of you.
Look just a little beyond your
Past.  She's gone.  You will see
Me standing here. Waiting for your smile.

I'm dreaming dreams of you and me,
Dancing, under a palm tree, on a moonlit night
Right before the dawn's bright light,
Here, holding me in your strong arms tonight.

Why can't you turn your head a little?
Can't you say hello to me?
You are always looking beyond me. Who do you
See instead of
Me?

She is mysterious, as strange as a daytime dream,
So remarkable, I see a
Princess dressed in a kimono covered with cherry blossom leaves,
Floating down river, under a canopy
Of pink and white Sakura trees.

She is so extraordinary, as unique as a double rainbow at sunrise,
So dreamy, as dreamy as a seaside sunset,
Her unconditional love scatters,
Like cherry blossoms in a fresh breeze,
Seen in rippling waves of sunshine.

So fantastical, as fantastic as a pink rose blooming in the desert,
So magical, as magical as our dreams coming true,
Princess Sakura singing, like an Angel,
She spreads her wings and flies away,
Like vanishing Sakura, leaves at the end of spring.

Princess Sakura, you will live forever in my dreams...

You Are Beautiful
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
Beautiful as faith!
Beautiful as hope!
Beautiful as your parents helping God bring an angel into this world.

Beautiful as brother and sister playing.
Beautiful as hearing children laughing.

Beautiful as warm sunshine though a window,
On a cold winter's day.

Beautiful as a garden of colorful roses.
Beautiful as a rainbow.

Beautiful as cotton clouds floating in a blue sky.
Beautiful when you look up to heaven with a bright smile.
Beautiful as happiness.

Beautiful when you play piano song.
Your piano song is so beautiful it makes me cry.

You are beautiful as...

A pink kimono
yukata
Adorned with velvet flowers

Standing there in the Springtime mist of Japan,
Guarded by Sakura trees.
Skies are blue,
Singing a beautiful song,

Pink lips like adorable flowers on a spring day,
A most beautiful, kind and loving princess to ever
walk Japan.

Your beautiful face,
Your kindest soul,
Your adorable lips,
You smiled at me.

You have the prettiest voice,
that calms my soul.

You're the most beautiful and loving princess,
ever to walk Japan...

Red Tulip
Ronald J Chapman Apr 2016
Why does the red tulip float?
Why does the flower shine through the window?
The warm breeze shrinks the breathtaking green.
Can't smell a flower, through a cold window.

Springs grow like warm breezes.
Courage, awakening, and blushing in the springtime,
All blossoms show strong, blooming red flowers.

God, such brilliance!

Never smell a tulip through a closed door,

Flower calmly like cotton clouds floating in the sky,
The sun paints red tulips, with an artistic brush,
Red flowers shake like misty sunrises.

Flowering warmly,
The small life calmly desires the clouds.
And reaches for the sky,
Blushing like a shy girl.

Angry Piano
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
The ivories' sleeping is like a lonely black piano.

Beautiful, small girl quietly fight a dusty, misty bench.
Hello, old friend.  Did you miss me?

Ah, life!

Running loudly like an old hammer.
Banging ******* the ivories.

God, action!

Piano keys are only black and white,
But sound like blue birds singing ,
On a bright morning's day.

Oh! No!

Where are the noisy keys?
Never love a broken string.

Exhaustion, noise, and love.
Never fight a hammer.

Lord, anger!
Piano, why are you angry with me?

Picnic With A Ghost
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
Woke on a white blanket today.
Looking at the blue sky above me.

Turning I see;

A strange looking farmhouse at the bottom of a hill,
A fence of split logs,
Mountains were rising up, like giants through a misty morning.

Two glasses of red grapes sitting on the blanket,

No one else around...

Plates made of paper filled with cherry pie,

No one else around...

Suddenly, from behind I hear!
A quiet voice was singing words I could not understand.

I turn to look,

No one else is there...

Obsession
Ronald J Chapman Mar 2015
A field with one thousand roses,

I only see one white flowering rose,

Obsession is only one white rose,
Obsession is only seeing you,

Blind to all others,

Using soju,
I create a mist,
That only surrounds you,
This, obsession with one white rose,
Is an impossible thing,
Sun shining through the mist,
Reflecting your love out to me,

But I can not see your face,
The sun is too bright,

Still I see a lovely white rose through the mist,

I want to grab hold,

But your thorns are too sharp,

How can I suffer knowing you exist, in the midst of my dreams,

That!

I will never be able to touch you,

Why am I obsessed with a single white flower?
When fate has sent to me a gift of 999 red roses?

Amazing Day
Ronald J Chapman Nov 2014
This was an amazing day!
I found my true love today,

I found that one person I want to be with forever and ever!
A person I truly care about and endeavor to love unconditionally.
That very special person I want to spend time with.


In spite of what other people think or say about our relationship.
That special someone that I care about more than myself,
That one love that very few find
In a single lifetime.

This was an amazing day!

Rainy Night
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
The night was cold and rainy.

I have noticed you, standing
far away from me in a shower rain.

Being guarded by a leaking umbrella,
It was hiding your face from me,
Your soaking wet hair was flowing down your back.

I was wondering when you would look at me.

As I walk towards you,
You walk further away from me,
As if I was standing still.

It seems I will never reach you.

I hate cold, rainy nights and leaking umbrellas...

My happiness travels across time and space,
Across a vast sea,

Years of looking,
And not touching,

Ancient Lands,
So far away,

A night's lonely dreams,
Walking along Hyeopjae Beach,
Summer's ocean breeze,
Warms my wandering heart,

You are standing here, Holding my hand,
Looking forward;
A billion diamonds swimming in,
The ocean's waves,

For such a long time now,
I've been missing you,

My heart will not let go,
Of the white sands of Hyeopjae Beach.

Stormy Sunset
Ronald J Chapman Aug 2015
Waving, the Sun falls like a flickering light bulb,
Blue sky, yellows, reds, oranges and golden clouds,

Adventure is lightning among the stars,

Why does the sun fall as darkness rises?
Yellows born in the East like lightning in the West.

Sunny gold sleepy clouds are sending breezy sounds,
Viewing lightning bolts, hearing thunder,

I lost all colors but found the flashing stars,

Life falling asleep in the West,
Life waking in the East,

Feeling sleepy,

Good night!

Waiting
Ronald J Chapman Nov 2014
Waiting for you in the bright moonlight,

Some nights I don't want to do anything;

I don't want to leave you,
I don't want to miss you,
I don't want to fall asleep,

I never get tired of waiting for you,

I'm afraid to close my eyes,

Waiting for you in the bright moonlight,
Oh, my love,
I can't forget you.

You left without a goodbye!

Have I torn our dreams apart?
Leaving me! With a lonely future,

I only see me in the photograph;

Have I torn our hearts apart?
Leaving, a pain in my heart,

I only see me in the photograph;

I have to forget the past,
Toss this torn photo in the trash and,
Move on at last.

A crisp, clear autumn day.

Looking up, I see!
A blue sky.
Wow, the autumn sky is so blue and high!

Why is the autumn sky so high that I can see the stars in the day?

Temperatures go low,
Crisp clear autumn air,
No monsoon clouds cry rain anywhere.

Nighttime sky so clear,
Cosmic explosions everywhere.

It's a wonderful time of the year.
Blues, reds, browns, greens seen everywhere.

Looking up, I see,
The high blue autumn sky.

Don't listen to prejudice,
Make your own path,
A person's life doesn't belong to others,
Hasty decisions destroys friendships.
Movement forward is most important.

Be thankful for your life and good friends,
Like ocean waves and beaches,
A day full of parties and fun. A
Mountain is meant to climb.
Move forward and
Silently. Do not listen to prejudice,
And also listen to your heart,
Cautiously, Always look to the future...

”Don't make a hasty movement. Be like a mountain. Move silently and cautiously.”

Eight Gates (Regional Korea)
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
Memories of my past continue to haunt me,
In my dreams every night.

Our spirits swore their faith for all ages.

Open gates let into our lives;

Loyalty,
Goodwill,
To Rule Solemnly,
Exalted Ceremonies,

Showing the Correct thing,
Wisdom.
Bright Light and,
Justice for all.

We only need to find the courage to
Walk through just one,
To make our dreams
Come true.

"The Eight Gates are eight historical gates that were located in the Fortress Wall of Seoul, South Korea, which surrounded the city in the Joseon Dynasty. Six of these gates exist today (2014) . All eight gates were originally built between 1396 and 1398."

Wake Up
Ronald J Chapman Jul 2015
Watching the sunrise in the East,
As it says goodnight to my dreams,
Rooster crows,
Cows mooing,

Light everywhere,

Cold shower,
Gets my heart racing, with the beat of rock song,

Breakfast;
Coffee bitters, and fresh cream,
Eating pancakes with strawberries, whipped cream, and syrup,

Clock hands moving by too fast,
In spite, I'm watching the sunrise in the East,

Dropping my crumbs on the floor,
One last sip of coffee,

Put dishes in sink,

Check smartphone for calls,

Grabbing my jacket and car keys,
Heading out the door,
To find out,
What the day has in store.

Can I keep this a secret?
You don't see me half the time. I am not perfect.
Read my mind. If you can.

Between these thoughts and feelings in my mind and heart,
The days are like extended
lines at a five star restaurant.

Can I keep this a secret?
You are making me crazy.
See you every long day.
Behind the window of my soul.
My breaking heart is no longer complete,
Eyes on you. I see every day.

Do you see me? Or are you looking past me?
You are always giving me your smile. Do you
Know this beguiles me?
What if,
I could not keep a secret?
Am I the only one,
Feeling this way?

The secret revealed:
"Can you read between the lines? Can you see behind my eyes? Do you know what I am feeling?"

Hungry Spirit
Ronald J Chapman Mar 2015
In that place of dreams, where my hopes and fantasies lie,

You will always find my Spirit smiling,

Looking at the sky, where magpies soar high,
Lifted by a calm morning breeze,

Listening to the music of a busy city,
Listening to cars, trucks and buses of many colors,
As they pass by,

In that place of dreams, where my hopes and fantasies lie,
You will always find my Spirit wanting to, taste the food of
An Eastern city,
Ooh! I'm hungry for Kimbap, Kimchi, ooh! I've,
Always wanted to taste Egg Toast,

The aroma of coffee is heavenly,

In that place of dreams, where my hopes and fantasies lie,
I will meet my hungry Spirit in Seoul someday...

Taking pictures of the high mountain.
I see a spectacular site;

She's floating with the clouds,
Sunny, white, fleecy clouds.

Wearing a pink kimono with wings covered in Sakura flowers,
Doves flying around her head,

Snow capped mountain towering in the background
Peeking through Sakura trees.

Is she playing with me?
She's playing hide and seek in the mist.

When, I look at her playing,
She fills me with joy and makes me feel like a child,
She makes me smile.

Alas, she hides among the clouds once again.
I look and look but do not see.  I am concerned.
I miss our hide and seek game.
Where did you go?  
We haven't finished our game.

Suddenly! I feel safe and warm all over me, Like a warm blanket covering me on a cold day, A tickle on my cheek.

And

Then, hearing a calming voice whispering in my ear saying, “Love, take my hand come with me. Let's go dancing high amongst the clouds this day.”

“You will never be alone again...”

I only wish I can find the courage, to hold you in my arms at last.

I wish I could give you one thousand of
my lifetimes.

I owe you my life,

How can I ever repay you?
For sending me such beautiful dreams.

I am amazed every night, when I see you in my dreams.

I live for you every day to hold you in my arms,

I live for you!
My Seoul,

I wish I could be standing in your arms where I belong.

My love Seoul,
I can't help but smile and wonder why God sent me here far to the West.

When you tell me every day, I belong in your arms.

But I owe you so much,
Hundreds of poems,

Hundreds of dreams
from a place, I have never been.

Amazing!
How can this be?

I love you Seoul Korea
that time can never take away.

I owe you more than my life
More than anything
I know this is a dept that I will never be able to repay.
Because I owe you so much
I owe you my life now, more than ever,

Why was I born so far away?

In the wrong time and wrong place?

Seoul Korea

"Have you met a gorgeous, lady at sunset?"
Someone said as we shook hands.
She was just a barefooted lady,
Brighter than the sunset in front of me.

Then I said, "Hello lady,
You're a lady who understands,
I'm a man who must be free."

As the sun falls asleep,
Let's walk along the beach,

Let's live a real life,
I can see it in her eyes, that she despises rainy nights,
She loves the moon reflecting off the water,

She loves sunny days,
Watching the skies just before dawn,
She loves autumn leaves.

Trying to figure a clever way, not to say goodbye,
To find some clever lines to say,
To make the meaning come through,

That's why Lady Sunset,
That's why Lady Sunset,
That's why Lady Sunset is a Goddess.

I love you.
I love...

Shining star, so far away;
Her starlight travels across,
Distant time and space.

Her warmth travels so far to reach me.

She's a powerful and strong princess,
With magical super powers.

She thinks of time's past,
She thinks of times yet to come.

She loves to travel through Europe,
But her dreams are of Japan,
And singing under Sakura trees in the springtime of Japan.

I notice the way she thinks about Japan always with a smile,

She likes to use words like 'Sakura flowers' and 'Yukata Kimono from Japan.'

She likes to hang out with Monica, Dad and Grandma,
But when left alone,
Her mind turns straight to Sakura flowers in
The springtime of Japan.

She hates mosquitos and cold,
But she just thinks back to springtime in Japan,
And she's happy once again...

Where dark and devastated loners,
Eat black painted noodles.

Sorry sad singles,
Lonely people!

Who dream of dark things, nightshade and purple;

Dressed in black,
Black nail polish,
Black accessories, black shoes.

Marking the time, but no looking back;

Drowning sorrows,
With little green bottles,
Never love a tear.
Kiss seldom, like a cold rainy holiday,

The small girl nowhere views the black dressed drunk in the mirror.

Missing love on this blackest of days...

The White Lotus,

Born from muddy, murky waters,
With its strength! Given from Heaven,
Never giving up,
Reaches for the Sky,

Heaven’s beauty,
A gift of white petals,

Floating in a world of cruelty,
Holding on to one's honor and purity,
Seems an impossible thing,

Never sinking,
One hundred days of rebirth,
Purity and resurrection,

Shows life's, potential,
After overcoming a world of muck.

Autumn Leaves

Born far above ground,
Each leaf is a new dream,

Time to go for a ride,

Falling, flying,
From colorful trees,
Catching a ride with the wind,

Shala la la la la la!

Raining down, more colors than a rainbow;
Reds greens yellows tans, oranges, browns...

Sewing, many layers of a colorful quilt,
Quietly covering the sleeping grass,  

A soft, crunchy carpet for,
Dogs and kids to run through,

Autumn Leaves.

Amongst the shadows of desire.

Sailing on a clipper ship,
Fishing on my trip,
In the midday heat of a tropical sun.

The daily death and birth of the tropical sun.

The sleepy afternoon sun sinks into the Western waves,
The skies on fire with a setting sun,
Blackness of night has come.

Candlelight casts shadows over an ocean of mystery.

Seeing a glow in the sky before sunrise,
A yellow sun skimmed the blue horizon,
The strong morning sun shines on my face.

Sharks endure!
Gulls wave!
Winds blow!

Where is the old reef?
Courage is a warm shore!

Why does the captain wave?
Oh! Island girls wave!

In this dream though time.

On Rainy Days
Ronald J Chapman Jun 2016
On rainy days, you're my umbrella.
On rainy days, you're my sunshine!
On rainy days, you make me smile;

Just as my confidence, becomes cold,
And my hair is soaked,
But still, your smile warms my Soul.

My soul on fire,
Burning with desire,

Memories of you and I,
Sharing a special umbrella,
On a rainy day.

Patiently waiting,
For a rainbow to appear…

Ice Queen (Regional Korea)
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
Paint with skates,
Gliding fashion,
Crystalline dull mirror,

"CAUTION" The sign said, "Danger of Slipping."

Hearing the notes from a somber tune.,
Gift to the world, “Arirang."

Her spin cycle gyrating like a porcelain doll's dream.
As she drifts abroad to other shores,
They shiver oh, how they shiver.
Goosebumps she brings!

The Ice Queen!

Angel Wings
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
I wake to the blue morning sky,
I see Angel wings in flight,

With a grace she gently wanders,
As if searching for something or someone,

She cries out!
Where are you my love?

I'm here my Angel.
Why can't you see me?

Please don't fly away my Angel.
I need you so very much.

My Angel, you take away my pain and give me joy,

I'm here my Angel.
Why can't you see me?

She turns and looks at me.
And says, “I'm here my Angel. Come fly away with me.”

Most cherished, Princess Deokhye,

I need to confess something to you. Ever since I met you in my dreams, I can only think of your radiant, black eyes. You filled my heart with unexpected joy and my head with amazing dreams of us together. My love can only grow more and more each day.
I dream of us laughing and from time to time I would gently stroke your black hair while you keep smiling. In moments like these my life would simply be complete.
When I’m alone in the quiet, it always feels like I can hear your voice, whispering to me.  Just like the blessed music of a Haegeum. I wanted to tell you this from a long time ago, you are as essential to me as is my warm coat on a winter's day.
My Beloved My Princess, please be sure I mean everything this love letter carries to you with all my heart. Once I saw your lovely eyes I knew there won’t be anything more precious to me in this whole world. I want to take you away from the past, away from any upset or misfortune, and we shall go together to the future Korea, where miracles happen every day.
You are the best my beloved princess.. You are my sunny day in spring.   I'd sacrifice everything in the world to know that you will be right here beside me for the rest of our lives.
My heart skips a beat at the thought that soon I will bring you a white rose of Sharon to show you once more how dedicated I am to you, for all eternity.

May love guard you,

Poet Ron

Princess Deokhye of Korea (25 May 1912 – 21 April 1989) was the last princess of Korea.
She was born on 25 May 1912 at Changdeok Palace in Seoul. She was the youngest daughter of Emperor Gwangmu and his concubine, Lady Bongnyeong.[1] In 1917, her name was formally entered into the Imperial Family's registry. Her father, Emperor Gwangmu, loved her greatly, and established the Deoksu Palace Kindergarten for her in Jeukjodang, Hamnyeong hall. Girls her age from noble families attended the kindergarten. In 1919, she was secretly engaged to Kim Jang-han, a nephew of Kim Hwangjin (a court chamberlain).

My Seoul (Regional Korea)
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
I had to put my feelings into soulful words.

I really feel our connection is tightening.
You are my eternal sunshine.
You are the miracle on the Han River!
Especially for you I created this rhyme.

I would rather have you than a trillion billion won.
You are like a white tiger amidst ordinary cats.
You are cherry blossoms in the spring sun.
I am not sure you will like my poem.
But know. That I am completely overblown.

Seoul Korea, you mean so much to me.
I have been so far away.
In this lifetime, I am afraid I will never understand.
I never knew this could be.
“Loving a place, I have never been!”
I anxiously await our time ahead.
For now, I keep dreaming of you instead.

I hope we make it; I hope it will be fast.
Loneliness quickly really lies in the past!
This poem has come to an end.
See you soon, my dearest friend.
Hopefully before this life ends...

My Seoul, “The Miracle on the Han River!”

Seaside Angel
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
On a sunny, warm day,
Under a blue sky, with,
White puffy clouds on the horizon,
On a seaside beach,

Sitting alone, thinking of what life will bring.

I glimpsed an Angel,
Dressed in white.

Her wings spread wide, like she just arrived.

So mystifying she is,
Walking through the ocean mist.

She appears in front of me,
She lifts me up,
How can I feel trust for someone I do not know?
She says, “Hello my friend.  Do you remember me from long ago? Please walk with me.”

"Tell me how has your life been?"
"Tell me of your happy times,"
"Tell me your sad times,"
"Tell me of your lonely times,"

We walked and talked for hours.
Then she said, “Don't ever feel lonely. I will always be here to lift you up. Just remember me.”

I turn to give her a hug and say thank you.
Where did you go?
She has vanished into thin air,
Have I been talking to myself?

A strong ocean breeze pushes my head down,
Then, I see two sets of footsteps in the sand.

Yes, I remember you from so long ago my Angel...

Winter Love
Ronald J Chapman Nov 2015
Walking alone on snow covered mountain roads,
Everything is changing while clouds fly through a brilliant blue sky,
Slay riding down steep hills,
The sun is getting high,

In the blink of an eye;

An old cabin in the woods, with a warm fireplace burning,
Another blink of an eye,
Snow falling lightly on roads, Skiing down hills, Drinking wine while,
 Covered with a blanket in front of a warm fireplace with you,
Want to stay, never let you go.

You and I together on a bench in front of a frozen pond,
Covered in a blanket, Taking your hand, Is this heaven?
Fate continues to point me to my Destiney I see every night in my dreams. 
 You and I making memories,
Opening my eyes wide,  I see you're still here, Not a dream.

Our home with a warm fireplace burning,
Our children singing,
Snow falling lightly on mountain roads, Skiing down hills, 
Drinking wine while covered with a blanket in front of our fireplace,
Want to stay, not to go, I love you...

Moonlight Memories
Ronald J Chapman Nov 2015
In this land of memories,
Moonlight shines,
Waves of shooting stars ripple across an Eastern sea,

Yet! What other words can describe such beauty?

The ocean plays a song,
Musical notes rushing past me,

Opening my heart,
Looking at the sea,
Remembering, yesterday's loneliness,

Waiting for you,
In beams of bright moonlight,

Seeing your reflection in the water covered in white,
Has taken away my memories of heartache.

Morning
Ronald J Chapman Feb 2015
The yellow glow of Sun's new daylight,
Shining on your face so brightly,

Where did the night go?

I'm afraid to touch your face,
Do you truly exist?

Is this what real love is?

I think of our future.
Have I finally found love?

But you're still dreaming,
You who makes me believe,
In love once again.

Cherry Blossom Memories
Ronald J Chapman Oct 2015
Spent our first sunrise together at Busan’s Haeundae beach,
And peaceful nights and bright days with you,
Waking up to cherry blossoms in the springtime,
Can we stay for the rest of our lives?

The scent of Seoul cherry blossoms in the spring,
Childhood memories,
Dreams of another time and place,
Guided me back home to you and this place,

Walking along the beach in our bare feet,
Time goes by to fast,
Spring colors, new life begins, brighter days,

Wasn't it just yesterday when I met you?
With cherry blossoms falling in your hair.

Thinking About You
Ronald J Chapman Nov 2014
I'm thinking about you right now;

Are you feeling well?
Are you smiling?
Are you laughing?

I'm thinking about you right now;

Are you sad?
Are you crying?
Are you lonely?

On this sleepless night,
I'm thinking of you,

My heart misses you,

I was thinking today,
When I reached out my hand, you are not there,
To catch me, when I fall,

My heart misses you,
Each and every day.

She Sends Me Dreams To Dream
Ronald J Chapman Jun 2015
Dreaming, of you every night,

Nights of seeing a rabbit riding on the moon,

Dreams of waking to your the words, “Good morning dear one.”
Waking to the smell of roasting coffee,
Hungry for fried rice and Doenjang soup,

Dreams of us living in the palace of prospering virtue,

Dreaming of watching the sunrise in this ancient place,
While holding hands and walking through our secret garden,

Dreams, of a beautiful dark haired woman,
Dreams of us growing old together,
Watching our grandchildren fly without wings higher than magpies,
Dreaming our dreams come true.

True Love
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
Love that can fill us up make us whole and give us happiness.
Does not mean saying, "I love you." Do
Not mistake the feelings, of imitation love for true love.

Always remember. True love does not
Mean having money, anger, ***, alcohol, violence, power, approval from others.
Saying, "I love you." Does not always mean love is true.

I want the love in my heart to be always true.
Love true with
You means. Giving to you all of my heart and soul unconditionally.

Visit My Dream
Ronald J Chapman Mar 2015
To truly visit my dream;
My dream of a Miracle,

A dream of a shrimp turning into a Giant Whale,
A dream that has come true,

No longer needing to imagine or daydream,
What my future will bring,

Visions of places I can only remember in my dreams,
places with familiar but strange names;
Beautiful visions of places called Seoul, Busan, Jeju, Inchon, and  Gyeongju. Where a beautiful queen named Seondeok once lived. And her spirit still shines!

To truly visit this place where my dreams come from,
This fantastic place and people,

Because I took a chance to visit my dream,
I can finally stop longing,
And wondering what my future will bring,
In this place called Korea.

Grandma's Garden
Ronald J Chapman Dec 2014
I love grandma's garden.

It's an oasis filled with love.

Grandma's garden is a pleasant place;

A quiet place,
A place where I can dream,
The place where I am loved,
A place where I can be myself,
A place where I feel safe.

Stars of many colors in the sky of green.
Reds, blues, whites, purples, yellows, pinks, and greens
Are seen…

Each flower is blooming with a promise of a smile,
Grandma's garden is such a happy place,
It puts a smile on my face.

I love grandma's garden...
