9781935914341: The Golden Gate Bridge and Other Natural Wonders

The Golden Gate Bridge and Other Natural Wonders is Han-Jae Lee's first
collection of poetry to be published in English. Described as "...a curious mix
of Eastern sensibility and Western playfulness," Lee's poetry speaks
with striking detail and understated elegance. His is the mind of a seeker who persistently asks us to go beyond how things appear, and in
looking deeply, to arrive at the soul of all things.

Painting

Sometimes the carelessly lined circle becomes a flower.
And a casually drawn horizontal line becomes the place
where Earth meets up with Heaven.

I glimpse the bony branches while I sketch...
The lines on the paper become the morning sunlight.
Or the thorns of rose bushes.

Bright flowers bloom.

The rose thorns turn into pins which pierce the fin
of the fishes like memories
that are sleeping in the deep lake.

The lilies are shy and smiling;
hiding in the woods.

I'm listening to Vivaldi's "Four Seasons."

Outside, it is raining; gusty winds whip around me.
And lightning strikes with a loud voice.

Just at that moment the electric lights go out.
Everything vanishes into the darkness.
I light a candle and start again-

Put my pencil to the blank page.
