Random Thoughts on Sept 1, 2016

September has finally rolled in
amid the cool air in the Bay area.
Are you sure the leaves
will turn yellow soon?

The reunion had me reminiscing
about the many autumns past
when dreams were flowing
like cascading waterfalls

Which dreams have been merging
into the ocean and which dreams
are submerged in the stream
aspiring to rise and to live?

Let’s bring on new dreams
in black, white and yellow skin
blooming like flowers in the Spring
as if we had never dreamed before.

Jan 1st 2016

The New Year’s day
Is filled with fireworks
Rainbow lights and confetti
Meeting old friends and warm wishes

The ghosts of the past
Are fortunately far away
Yet the ghosts of the future
Miserably keep haunting me

Where are my new year’s resolutions?
Where are my colorful dreams?
Long gone are the days
I thought I could control my body

Let them explode –
Thoughts about old age and sickness
Let them transform into new kinds 
Of energy and dreams for me.

Happy New Year 2016!
