These Heroics of May


The sun is alive in my belly/
My navel of blowing May
The soft gold of my birth-month
I’ve waited for this

Over fields where I turned/
Your bronze name in my head
Over and over, like buds and springs
Of all the loves I have ever witnessed

The high stars maintain/
The dripping hope of last-songs
Today’s melody, well it’s for Spring
I am fixed in her like a Galaxy

The secret of her fragile skies is this –
That I’ve had a shinning head
For outrageous dreams
As the smallest movements in my mouth

May is for heroic kissing/
For lovers who burn with lucid plundering
To build new lives
Where we have once been cheated
To replace that with fertility.

  1. Wuji, beautiful poetry…you are so amazing! The images…the lines of wonder…so alive with feeling! Lovely!
    Regarding awards, this is what I have come to know about them: (1)People can create an award and then begin it and pass it to those they deem worthy; (2)Once you receive an award, then you follow the simple rules for each award and nominate other bloggers that you think deserve the same award; (3) it is a way for bloggers to become acquainted with other bloggers.
    Personally, I love them! Especially, when one is beginning to put one’s writing out there–it is a confidence builder for we ego-driven mortals. I love them for another reason—it leads me to actively seek out other bloggers and read their writings–it serves to build a strong writing community….and I am all about sharing the love crystals! LOL…I will be sending you an award soon…then you will see firsthand what it is like.

    • Olivia, that’s a beautiful description of what the awards do and mean, thank you so much. I loved your message! Feel free to add my on facebook, info is on my about page.
