Red Ginseng - Nonce Poem Seedling Youth is like red ginseng, it tastes sweet but leaves a burning on your lips Love is the same, the longer you keep it for the stronger it becomes One must ferment in the turbulence of life to experience joy Only then will the duality of a relationship make itself present Then you can enjoy the rewards of patience, instead of stewing with resent. Growing Shoots bursting through like starlight dancing Words connected as promises made Waiting for the spring in loves season Green purity, growing without reason. Blooming The fruit that blooms is vibrant and crimson Hauntingly sweet with very little time Each touch is splendid yet replenishing Roots firm, and a bond is establishing. Fading Burning out like the old yellow Sun that touches the surface of our Earth Red skin withers into a crumpled mass, its roots crippled with age and time The love begins to fade as our bodies break beneath the hands of life The flower dead, pulled are the remnants from the once fertile ground Yesterday is over, like the red ginseng, it's still with no one around.
