I am wondering how kois know each other. Do they call their fellow koi by name? Are they friends? Whenever I see them swimming and eating together, it seems that their world is full of happiness and full of contentment.

Happily swimming
In a pond full of lotus,
Brightly colored kois.

There are times that I dream of flying, touching the clouds and sliding on rainbow. Sometimes, I can feel that it’s real, not merely a dream.

My mind flies so high
That the clouds become blanket,
The rainbow, my bed.

My heart burns with so much love, that it consumes me. Perhaps, there’s an oven inside my chest, and it can bake bread.

Love fire ablazing,
Gold and silver quickly melts,
Like icing on cake.

You are the miracle. -
You are the miracle. –

Miracles are not
Things extraordinary.
Colorful flowers
in full bloom in the meadows,
In themselves are miracles.

The beautiful sun
That rises every morning
Is miracle.
For it brings not only warmth
but also the hope of life.

The blueness of sea,
The wideness of the skies,
Your lover’s sweet kiss,
The twinkling of the stars,
Life, itself, is miracle.

Nothing can compare
with your smile, oh so sweet!
Just like honeycomb.

Are you an angel?
For whenever you pass by
It feels like heaven.

Divine, yes, divine
Best to describe your aura.
Truly enchanting.

I really don’t know
How can you capture a heart
just doing nothing.

New dawn is coming
Whenever we see you dear
With you is the sun…

Every time you come,
Our hearts jumps in much joy
Simply magical.

Light-hearted you are,
Goodness resides in your heart,
Oh, truly divine!

Unique in every way,
A precious gem from the earth,
A pearl of the sea.

Surely you are blessed,
A being of enchantment
Fay of the forest.

Thoughts of you
can make our hearts quiver
due to so much joy.

Radiance so bright,
Which emanates from your heart
Infectious goodness.

Enrapture us more,
With your smile and laughter,
Real awe and wonder…
