for Ronak WITH LOVE

by Poena Damni

[ – Sun Gu, you wrote new verses?

- Yes, master.

- Answer. If you’ve never seen a white lily and suddenly see one, can we say that the lily did not exist before that day?

- No, it existed.

- And if you have perceived a wonderful poem, that no one before you had imagined, can we say that it did not exist before? Answer me…Do poems live free and independent like flowers or butterflies or waterfalls and trees? Or are they born anew, invented by a special person?

- It is like that, sir. ]
