TO THE POEM OF A FLOWER – Wansoo Kim

 

TO THE POEM OF A FLOWER 

In front of darkness

That doesn’t bloom a stem of a poem

Even though I burn my whole body

Staying up all night,

You are giving off

The mysterious scent

As the poem of a fresh flower

That petals are in full bloom.

In your white and clean flower flesh,

The myth of Venus is heard

And in your flower eyes like jewels,

The legend of Emerald Lake glitters.

Please don’t open

Your reddish flower lips,

‘Cause the whispers of love overflow

Even in the crack of the closed flower lips

And light a fire in the heart of darkness.

Darkness runs away

As you shine brilliantly,

But small embers

Left in the trembling heart

Are blooming

As a stem of a love poem.
