I decided to do recordings for six of my poems at random.
That feeling when you are inspired to write off of a few words someone once said to you... priceless.

One Sail stands for my Chinese name given to me by my parents. Yi Fan. I am not very legible in reading or writing the mandarin dialect. I am American Taiwanese, I write poetry and stories. At times I do photography, however nothing that professional. I plan on finishing my first novel of my series called Shadows of God within my spare time.

I'll just keep dreaming until it ends and wake up seeing it become a reality...

I believe through poetry. People can connect and are able to break barriers of all sorts.

I feel that poetry helps most people throughout history to live through the times. Rough or not poetry is the root of many other art forms.

Whether the person is a poet or not.
They can always benefit somehow by writing poetry for their own sake as well.

As an artist I try to work towards a better tomorrow.
A better future for the mankind of the present time.
The total existence of the world.
So that what I do as a artist will help inspire people to do what they think they must do to help the world or to just enjoy it.

Taiwan Entry #4

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 23, 2015, 11:21 AM

Hafez is a poet that, I am told, never traveled and lived in Persia (Iran) all his life. He listened to the merchants and travelers that happened upon him during his life, and wrote poetry that often was poured from his heart like most poets of old. I received a book called Divan of Hafez filled with translations and original forms of Hafez’s work from my Father’s fellow mountaineering friend. We went out for Chinese food tonight and I was able to read a few poems within the book.

Hafez’s Memorial is visited by many with troubles and questions. The people go to him with his such a book then they say a prayer with their issue. Next they open the book to a random page and read the poem, that is Hafez’s response.

This practice reminds me of one that Asians often practice when they go to Temples and Shrines. I decided to open this book to a random page while writing my next poem for my Nightly Dribble. It was a wonderful feeling as I feel a connection with this particular poet, the pages I opened to were 260 and 261 in the book.

The English translations were made by WilberforceClarke for the first one, and Herman Bicknell for the second one, here are some bits:

“If the Beloved departed; and recognized not the right of ancient society.
God forbid that I should go in pursuit of another beloved.”

“This keepsake that thy pen shall trace
For all the days                                                                                      Of life.”

Also here's a bit about my short China Trip:

"Seeing my blood related aunt in Nanjing, being in the hometown of my father- my roots, really closed off some of the troubled doors in my heart and mind. Also being able to go to Zhenjiang the hometown of my mom’s pop was amazing. All these relatives, friends of my parents, new people I’ve met and befriended… they drive me from the fear of failing in life. Yeah, I’m worried I’ll be like artists of the old, you know the depressive drunk Poe."

Either way, tonight was helpful as I talked to an artist who paints onto smooth stones beautiful artworks of his. He was listed in the news before and well, let's just say our conversation involved his analysis of me, and love advice on my future mate. All of which, I didn't ask for, but that's what I enjoy when talking with anyone... things that matter in life filled with the values of the speaker.

It got my brain going to think about writing him into a character or poem, The Stone Painter. He'd have a background involved with selling fortune-telling through his artwork. However, customers that buy their selected item will have to talk to him about their lives for half an hour, and whatever is said he will write on the back of the stone his advice and thoughts. Which then the Stone Painter will have to think about what he wants to say onto these stones, while taking into account how big the piece is, how much he wants to say, what matters most, and if it could somehow relate to the painting.

Aside from that... the fox Goddess Shanza in my story Shadows of God, will probably be receiving a son. He will probably be some mixture of a Cat and a Fox with a tail that has nine knots. This is a saying in Chinese that any cats with a slightly curved tail is very vicious and aggressive, "Nine Knot Cat"- - Jiǔ Jié Māo
