Mountain dough spin click
 
 

Mountain stands there
beside the woods
spin spin
dough spins
that's the click he sings

Humorous the net
and the city that goes to rest
restless the light
and spins that will vest

Hall-Mark he walks through
with purchase
the doll and his dough
while not spending a lot

He runs to his truck
spins the wheel and it thrusts
into the woods and the mountains
in front of him they last

Cartoon pictures he sees
and his classical music welcomes the guests
he found the dough
and its insignificance

The net the dough hangs
and the crust the pumpkin pie he eats
just goofy as he was
and he will spend his time
after all it lasts

Some cookies
and blueberry muffin
with a drink at least
when he spend his time
with the rest

Walking for Jesus mountain dough protests
after he is making his nightmare go away
just to spare an eyesight
he is not the only one gets a rest
and spins the dough it clicks
to claim the glory and it is a must

Review for Imminent Ferns
Imminent Ferns is a collection of thought provoking and insightful poetry
written by Chinese author, Sha Yan. While English is Sha Yan's second
language, he has the rare gift of setting onto paper the simple events,
common to all of us, in such a way that many of his words will strike a
chord with his thoughtful readers. Although, because of the language
barrier, some of the beauty and insights of Sha Yan's thoughts were lost, I
found several poems that held within their lines, shining jewels of insight
and beauty. I loved the final line of That Feminist Calls Upon Me that
reads:


"One day I woke up

looking at the poster on my wall

it was old I thought

maybe I would sell it."


And the profoundly simple line at the end of Whine, Lost and Found:

"Yes, I lost my poetry book,

But I did not loose myself."


I laughed aloud at the line in Seven Days in a Week:

"So,I found living without money is very boring."


One of my favorite lines in the book came from Mountain Home Mischief:

"Men descend

from grave to grave

and women cheer

while picking strawberries

pretend happiness in the grief."


And finally, this jewel from Intentions Clay:

"When twilight

Twilight shines

You spare some moments thinking

I would like to shine sometimes too

Why not, after all, you are human being."


I thank Sha Yan for sparing some moments to shine through this work of
poetry.
