Scarlet star

Scarlet star

“Knock knock”
“Who’s this pretty dwarf?”
“A scarlet star
in velvet petals”

“Do you ever shine
like Venus so bright?”
“I gleam day and night:
my scent is the light!”

“Now just tell me why
you aren’t on the rise”
“The homeland of mine
is sky of the sky!”

“But you don’t reflect”
“I do, rhythmically
with my dear soulmate
above South China Sea”

“Yet you aren’t endless
through billions of years”
“I’m the name of Love
Love’s eternity”
