The lost beloved

You are born like a young orphaned sparrow...

To a distant muse

You are my inspiration with lofty sights...

While you sleep

Looking at you sleep in the calm evening...

Search for the dream

Here I am, looking at you, Young, smiling and bright...

Time is silent

As I was looking at the cold winter rain...

To our children

On a beautiful day you suddenly appear...

Why do you ask

You ask why I keep wanting your love...

Poems 2007 (New)

11 new poems added




I have always loved to play with words and I write poetry to do this for my own enjoyment.  My very traditional metrical poems are mostly about love, my beautiful wife and my dear family. However, I found that they appeal to many readers of this website. “The Lost Beloved” was a favorite, and has been reprinted a number of times in various publications. 

In this update, I have added 11 new poems which I wrote during lonely hours I spent in the USA in 2007.  They read like personal poetry, but they are not.  They are inspired by sentiments and situations based on: watching tear-jerker Korean movies, listening to songs, reading poems by other established or aspiring writers,  thinking of home, watching Hmong at New Year celebrations or at work, talking to young people about their feelings and hurt concerning life and love. 

I hope you enjoy reading them. You are welcome to contribute your own poems and I will be happy to host them for you.
