Changming Yuan

Walking in the Rain

You open, I
close, or I
open, you
close, either
your umbrella
or mine

To keep both
ourselves dry
from this cold
rain, we have
to share
the one, the same
umbrella, if we
must walk
in hand

In a Sense

You are
in ascent
He is to have
inner scent
She is already
in a cent
We are all
