On a warm twist of winter
At 5:30 in the morning of Korean calm
An early bus slips past the chot noon [first snow]
Sailing down in windless clusters
Like whispers

Recollections of Han

Cityscape
As evening approaches,
And night extends the sky’s expanse,
A neon canopy is cast over the vast extent

Soulful and scenic,where its Han runs deep,
Its water forever infused with history’s narrative
And composed by nature’s recurring chronicle….

To the peak of our expression
And the open expanse…
