Dream Lychee Candle by DS & Durga
From David Seth Moltz AKA D.S.
"Over last summer, I read the Dream of the Red Chamber by Cao Xuegin - a family epic from 18th century China. The richness of the story drips off the page in vibrant color, revealing what life was like for giant families in mansions at that time and place. The spirit world, Taoism, and poetry are woven together with the mundane details of aristocratic living in Qing China.
Time and again, the reader is privy to detailed descriptions of fantasy garden scapes and otherworldly realms. Rare fruits, fine clothing, elegant bushes, and striking flowers are everywhere.
This is a quick poem about lychees spoken in the late spring by a pavilion in the garden set up to receive royalty and entertain the family. Light up and dream lychee.
spring has joyously languished
we sip tea by lily rose pavilion
south winds now sing of lychee"
