Wet Day in Wonju

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started writing poetry on Hubpages back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

Wet Day in Wonju

Wet day in Wonju

held an umbrella too tight

almost losing grip

to fly away on the wind

cocooned under each raindrop.


Resting on a crest

looking out over city

early morning mist

tucks in one corner pulled tight

a Chestnut Tree pushes up.


Eat a cold rice ball

walk by open market squid

eye moved in package

over to row of Turnip

some deep pink or sun yellow.


At night Soeul lights up

jump from noodle shop to bar

for a quick Soju

before walk to the Subway

or before nap on park bench.


Story starts over

back on American soil

driving beat up car

along California coast

up North is ancient Redwood.
