Interior Design (Bluebell Books Twitter Club SSS W23)

tussle in the canopy.
The self-claimed soul
insults the blind faculty.
are trained to think.
Connecting dots
to see the live formations,
And round
to three decimals briskly.
Elementary matrices,
Sculpted cream.
A differing friend,
First rain July Clouds send.

A Dark Thing Inside The Day (Bluebell Books Twitter Club Short Story Slam W23)

Everyone wants to be entertained by music,
If not dancing or performing,
And the hunger for happiness today is obviously strong,
charming chirping in almond treetops inspire me to write,
How I adore the thriving almonds in the foliage,
Doves coo,
While men build new houses;
Bees hum,
When sweet roses bloom;
Wounds hide in pile of leaves,
I decide to bring no death to the woods,
All roses are adult looking,
this year's peach trees are giving,
and I wish to praise all of the flourish things!

Happy (Belated) Birthdays, Grandma and Grandpa!

Recalling my time spent in China,
I couldn't forget my grandparents on my mom's side,
and my grandma on my dad's side,
we spent more time at Dad's home,
But Mom's parents came to visit us
and grandpa bought ice pops and icy waters for me
when I felt very very thirty ...
and I rode bikes at Mom's house,
with an uncle taking Sheng and me to internet...
Mom's parents bought new water machine for us,
plus a large king bed...
They have worked hard and long to
make our visit pleasant and cool,
I wish to say: Happy (belated) Birthday to you,
take good care, and I love both of you.

Water Fun Around TianJin, ShangHai, and BeiJing (For Short Story Slam Week 22 on Fathers' Love)

After riding a cruise in Haihe of Tianjin,
and cross the Huangpu river in Shanghai by a carrier,
My Dad took mom and I boating, 
in Beijing Yuyuantan Park,
We sat on a green boat
with our heads shaded by pink roof,
Dad and I pedaled on two sides
with Dad controlling the steering wheel between two of us,
Then Mom and I did some more
before Dad came back to co-sail our boat,
We went to see the lotus woods on our left side first,
Reached southern Entry of the park next,
We parked our boat near an arc bridge,
Listening to a group of crowds (elder citizens) singing loudly,
with music bands to worship the Chinese government …
It was half an hour past when we decided to sail back,
While watching two invaders swimming in the center of the lake,
Dad and I took some pictures of the water way…
and we enjoyed seeing many other boats
around US: battery charged ones,
Professional controlled ones…
After about 50 minutes, our boat
hit the shore, we finished our water fun
with great satisfaction….
Thanks for the watery ride
with US being the boss,
Making decisions both on our directions
and on time spent in the lake,
Boating could be fun
when one is willing to take the risk
and become part of the outdoor adventures…
