Loving heart

Destiny

Tonight,
question you
because
you are my destiny.

sylvia's mother
Yonah Jeong Aug 22
early in the morning
as i went up the stairs
secretly
first seen
the strength of two eyes

not my relative
but a next-door

in our home
radish soup
when there was no soup
when money ran out
it became a bank

was
our nearest
better than
distant cousin.

Love between in-laws
Yonah Jeong Jul 20
Three sacks of rice
were brought from
the countryside and piled
on the floor
in the evening
my wife decided to go to
her parents home to rest
blood families are
exactly
more comfortable than
legal relatives
i hesitated
picked up a small sack
of barley and said to my wife
"you can take this"
scared to end
mother-in-law
mom
told
daughter-in-law
"gave us daughter
but
what can i not give?"
she pointed to a big sack of
glutinous rice.

Not to play,
sets to play
over sixty years
sitting down before piano

Tuning, Compromising
between rising and falling

One note can't be sound
without neighboring notes
players don't know,
Their discontents
for audience
wining with breathtaking tuning
tuner is loved only
with the piano

For best performance of player,
"Bravo" from the auditorium,
standing behind the stage
have a appointment
of tomorrow tuning
"Worth it"

ice and water
Yonah Jeong Aug 10
ice
is broken
solid and
grabbing
as one's own
can only live
even shadow grogginess
unable to see
the eyelights of head

can break the flow
you
softly open hands
as someone else's I
can only enjoy
even the shadow breath
audible
the ears of heart

when the ice melts, become water
when water freezes, become the ice

in between
what is there.

5 needs
Yonah Jeong Aug 26
we know the five needs
the color
the sound
the scent
the taste
the touch
              we commit five sins
                                              by eye
                                              by ear
                                              by nose              
with tongue
                                              by skin
we live five lives
as we can see
    as we can hear
          as we can smell
              as we can taste
                    as we can feel
                                                            ­        i learned five worlds
and the utopia, also
                                                            ­the justice is well known

                          It has pacify me today.

Yonah Jeong Sep 6
Remember
when fell asleep last night
forest outside the window
when the sun rises
this morning to shine
but above all else
there is something to not forget
to meet you in a little while
people on the street
to hear the voice calling
to see the face waiting
pining for you
as time goes by
you will be there
and there is one more thing
you must leave behind

Time has stopped.
Yonah Jeong Sep 1
With all might
people running down the road
ask. Why do you live?
what is your dream?
answer
infinite possession
infinite happiness
Infinite compete
infinite richness
infinite status
infinite victory
infinite ruling
infinite health
but remove these finite obstacles
and sing a song of sorrow
"infinite is in finite."

Unheard voice
Yonah Jeong Jun 19
With the desk
sitting on the chair
writing the poem

mother was calling

"It is heavy
I can not go up to
the roof
can you pick up
please."

with an annoyed face
holding and seeing it
like the weight of the little toy
used to play
as a child
i was talking
loudly

"no, it is so light"

Yonah Jeong Aug 7
fall to the ground
not a seed

blood sorrow

my sadness
pains of  the unscathed ego
as strong as
the diamond
crocodile tears.

The philosophy of money
Yonah Jeong Jul 30
It is very hard
to make money
but
it is too easy
to spend money

It makes money
for myself
but
it spends it
for my neighbours

Into the station
a train is coming
noisy,
sharp ringing
in a beautiful voice
you come in
organize the shared
time and history and lives
you are coming to me
--If money hadn't slipped through us
love would not have faded
or tarnished
put one foot on the train stairs,
grabbed the handle with
one hand and bowed head
like words with tears
following a slow-moving train, i,
your one point remains
full stop.
frozen snows on the place
left and staying

Sleep
sleep
when it is quiet
more active
floating sleep
even if i push you away
even if i hug you
beat and twist and pinch
even if i put it down
with judo bout
digs into my chest
running the tunnel of stomach and intestines
from head to toe
greed and prejudice
harassing
another name for immortality
sleeplessness
i never kicked
people say i kicked it out
gossiping
you are the reason for my existence
i diagnose myself
who has never suffered
from insomnia
thrash all night with you
beautiful, healthy and friendly
a flower that blooms only at night
sleeplessness' sleep
if anyone has seen with opening eyes
i want to make a club.

                                      to precious  you

Waiting
Yonah Jeong May 6
Where does it comes from?

Magnolia flowers in the sky
between old-fashioned buildings
quiet street
a bench by the river
taxi passenger's humming
                                              coming with?

Street corner
poor shop
the sound of the door opening
according to the bicycle wheels
                       traffic light and signs
                                                           ­ coming with?

No
spring doesn't come that way

Resting in the chest
looking at young daughter
following the mother's gaze
it was already here.
Yonah Jeong May 31
My wife says you
get angry very well
do not take care of appearance
do not know the value of money
human relationship are not good
food is too picky
just say what want to say
selfish
can not do worth of the name
scrutinize and scrutinize

Nevertheless
i am at peace with my wife

Because
with my old parent in the 90's
under the May sun
hanging the laundry
sharing the happy conversation
even in the COVID-19 pandemic.

disappearing
the light departs
the darkness departs
stars in the universe
blew galaxy also
existence value
begone from
no more on the ground
until cannot stay
with a heart that only looks
a flower that only leans,
out of reach
time that cannot be reached
at the speed of light
just thinking

A forest
like New Yorker colors
flowing through

october, wind
stroking the grass
siren,
dog barking from afar
steamer.......babbling
shaking traffic lights,
most beautiful city,
Vorona stretches out.

take an afternoon nap
place to enjoy
wavering clothes line
by full of

An executing philosophy
In dead end
staring at the cat
with the eyes of mouse
resisting work against
suppression and inequality

An executing philosophy
Hope's bitter rod
in despair
in fear
feeling work
its taste.

An executing philosophy
Understand neighbors
across the river of dishonor
refusing to be sacrificed
to ideology
It is work.

How to become a poet
Yonah Jeong Jul 11
A poet
do not use poetry
as a mean to the other ends

Do not covet
for money
for honor
for authority
for political power
for celebrity

No tricks
shows talent
lives one day
like a ephemera

Not living with poetry
only living poems

Becoming
one of the stepping stone
give a song
to running water
long years
person who is fraying
A poet

So

By
elected
publishing
recommendation
cannot be a poet
just be a rookie.
