Thought for the Day

“For years
I have been dreaming
of turning
writing into a sport
in the Olympic Games
that is called, tentatively
in which I’d give
my simplest performance
by lifting
the lightest and
the liveliest

till it flies
lifting me, weightless
into a sky
of loving

~ Lifting by Ouyang Yu
(1955 – )
