Robins, Two

Robins, Two
By Chongchen Saelee

Robins, two, they soar!
Over glade they freely glide
Red dawn sun burning down
Flowing red blood hearts ignite

Robins, two, triumphant wings!
Majestic crimson blur in wind
Shades in bursts of color fade the sky
To reveal silver violent violet gray within

Robins, two, lose flight to fight!
As tears pour down from heaven’s gate
Cutting through royal blue cold clouds
And strike of Zeus, robins, one, make

Cold Feet

Cold Feet
By Chongchen Saelee

In the white frost covered earth
A budding light of sun emerged
Reaching for life in new warm air

It stretched its fingers and petals
Yellow and golden with red specks shimmering
Dancing with the dry blue despair

The wind swirled down and scooped it up
Cold, no, warm, no, ice, no heat
And hand turned pale next to cold feet

The Robin And The Frozen Nest

The Robin And The Frozen Nest
By Chongchen Saelee

Miles Longman found joy bathing in golden yellow sunlight early in the morning overlooking his many acres of wooded land covered in snow. He particularly enjoyed the friendly robins chirping even in freezing temperatures, as though there wasn’t a care in the world. Miles would dress in heavy winter clothing and trek up the snowy hills to visit some local robin nests. The robins had grown familiar with him in their habitat that they expected him every morning. Miles had watched generations of robins grow in his backyard for over 20 years.

This particular morning, Miles found a frozen robin’s nest dangling off a branch. It seemed as though a snowball fell into it, melted and refroze as ice. The nest was pretty much an ice cube with tiny frozen blue robin eggs inside. However, Miles witnessed a strange phenomenon. The mother robin would continue to nurse her frozen nest. She would return with twigs or leaves and continue to build the nest. Miles heart would sink as he watched. He wondered if the robin knew her eggs were dead. more »

Wisconsin Winters And The Fall

Wisconsin Winters And The Fall
By Chongchen Saelee

My chair is warm other seasons
When I sit and sip and stare
Out my writing room window

Wisconsin winters creep in, of course
Biting, dry, crackling cold air
Theatrical but silent with a bow

And the heat from my lamp stops
Before it tires battling the chill
Of the mighty season known to kill all

But in my chair I wrap myself
Double layered sweaters and blankets and socks
To cough, to cushion myself for my fall

A Contract With God Trilogy (1978-1995) By Will Eisner Review

A Contract With God Trilogy
Published from 1978 to 1995
Books by Will Eisner

Review by Chongchen Saelee

Man, first off, what a depressing overall story. Will Eisner’s epic story revolves around the tenants of a neighborhood on Dropsie Avenue, somewhere in New York area. It starts out with the day to day living and MISERY of early inhabitants in early 1900s. Everyone seems to be miserable or suffering because of an economic depression.

The first book, “A Contract With God”, focuses on tenants and their lifestyles. Needless to say, most if not all end in very depressing ways. more »
