Lanterns floatingSecretly, ever so delicately, they float silently in secret skies above,
Dreams, oh so many sacred yearnings for love,
A galaxy of lonesome stars calling your name,
Where do you dwell, where does your light reside, you and me, are we the same?

A tale of tea and cookies

Sitting amongst chrysanthemum blossoms on a spring eve,
Cinnamon cookies and a cup of jasmine tea,
Blessings disguised in sweet simplicity,
countless they are when we’re ready to receive…
