Zen Pearly-Moment

Though sitting near the fireplace next to the window

Still, I felt the bone-chilling wind’s blow

Darkness and gloom hovered over the streets

But up in the sky, I saw the crystalline shining streaks 

Waiting to float down from white fluffy-skies

I rejoiced as it would soon bring flakes of light from paradise.


Slowly, out of abundance, the flake of happiness fell on my bosom

With the utmost care, you rose a pure beautiful-blossom

You, a heaven’s glitter, showered on my world, a new shine

I felt like pearly zen-moments of divine

I opened the door of my heart to let you kiss my face

It slid my dusty gloom away that settled in laces


I watched you tumble, crystalline    feather

Brought along the immense pleasure

You held me tight and created me anew world,

And I wrote page after page for you, our dream world

Your first shower was like a zen moment and well-timed

I got lost and melted in your serene glory,

And you, you made me a part of your story!
