Monte Sano

Shanhu Lee

Monte Sano State Park

Driving on the snaking road

to the mountain, my BMW roars

like a lion. White

and pink Azaleas bloom

in front of old houses

on Molen Avenue, in this cold

blue March.

In my hometown, Yanji

in northern China, near Siberia,

Azaleas bloom in May


mother’s birthday.
