Occasional Poem

Shanghai Haiku

Soft music floating

Channel of human spirit

Metro train rambles

Books on long shelves

Reams of ageless knowledge

A baby turns its head

Passage of time

People on a sidewalk through a window

A street lamp shining

Yes, she said to him

Entangled branches of two trees

The warm wind of spring

Distant foggy hills

Bestow tea-leaves for mind and body

The future right here
