The Temple of Dawn
You are speaking today
People call you Wat Arun Rajawarana
Look like the same built in 2nd reign of Chakkri Dynasty
The river Chao Phraya, the most resilient and silent witness of you
Standing just on the west
Thousands of people come every day from any part of the world Visit your excellence
They see you, read you, love you and enjoy the beauty of you
You bear the glorious sight as if it were the wonder of the earth
How gorgeous the art, how fascinating the work
We, the people can’t but charm
The gods inside and beside symbolizes the heart so respectful
In the temple beside you, many come to bow down to the gods
And take mercy from Bhikku
Some are busy to eat and buy
How high you are!
How high the mind the people bears!
I lost myself for a while where I am!
I think and walk around
Suddenly one called me, ‘Excuse me’.
This is the Grand Palace where the king lives
The temples and memorials so busy and religious
Loved by all, live in honor
It’s your palace; thousands of people built this and that
Within 1782-1785 time-limit
The rocks and metals brought from various countries of the world
Now many tourists daily come and visit
They read and see the myth
O the king of Thailand, you live in the palace where I not
The palace where I live larger than you
Do you know the name of the palace?
You do have also
You can see your own
I can see my own
‘Heart’, unseen but vast in region
Decorated with so much flowers and fragrance
That can cross the border easily visible or invisible
Made of mud but reach the world of stars or beyond
Then we both live in the same palace.
I reached the world of flowers
Here and there everywhere flowers and flowers
So nicely arranged that make any one charmed
The shrubs and cactus, over the head, the shade of love
Welcome us as you love and love
I wandered and sat, took water and coffee
With so many snaps I came back
Open my sights and vividly you seem to appear
What a nice experience I got!
It’s my adventure in mind live for long
When I’d be no longer here you’ll speak with me
With glorious sights and scent of the orchids
The Nongnooch Garden and Resort
So many flowers, so many cactuses and cactus families,
So many elephants, such colorful leaves
I can’t describe all but the world we deserve
It scents the love desired in heart
Love for you and the earth
New brand of vehicles and the welcome moods of the elephants
I got lost in thought
Tiger plays the role of a cat not to devour
The sights and seen make one’s mind always refreshed
And there is a nice environment for lunch
With the silent beauty of the garden and the pond
There may be chirping sound of birds in the silent charm
Can enjoy the theater and the elephant show with much interest
The theater shows the culture of the people
And how obedient the elephants!
You will ever be in mind
O Nongnooch Garden!
O Garden in my heart.
At My Balcony Sight
This is my balcony, my little world
A new sight still to observe
The two little cats surrounded by shreds and leaves
Lying together lost by their own
Not only a sight, a philosophy, a guide to me
What a peaceful moment they pass!
How deep they fall in themselves!
Touching warmth, a love to live
I see and see
Revolves my heart to lie by you
Want to sleep so sound, intoxicated
O love, please —–
Tears roll down from my cheeks
Why don’t we keep away the turmoil fights within?
