Yet to Know

I close my eyes
I hear the chirps
Of the birds resting low
I open them
And there I saw
The world I have yet to know

The cobblestones lay dry and wet
Under the extraordinary rays of the sun
The summer heat is striking
With the people’s laughter in all day’s fun

I see different shades of green
From the little garden that never dies
Creepy bugs live in them, maybe
Bugs that aren’t seen by my naked eyes

I close my eyes
I hear the chirps
Of the birds resting low
I open them
And there I saw
The world I have yet to know

My dog lies down on its own white fur
And cheerfully barks when our eyes met
Then she looks out to the quiet street
There’s a black cat walking down, I bet

My bike rests near the bamboo fence
A little bit rusty from the past few rains
I know it’s still good enough, however
For that’s the only bicycle I can sustain

I close my eyes
I hear the chirps
Of the birds resting low
I open them
And there I saw
The world I have yet to know

White puffy clouds float gradually
Like little cotton balls in the sky
The birds flew through them in a mist
Then they all soared up high

That’s all I can see from here, I thought
There’s nothing else to ponder
But if I go out of the house to explore the world
Will I see more? I wonder

I close my door
And stepped out
To give it all a go
I open the gate
And there I saw
The world I have yet to know
