Poem: My Family In Vietnam

The peach offers her sweetness to me.How can I share this precious treasure with you?

In my mind, we all sit down to dinner­ arms reaching across the ocean-- I invite you to share what I have to eat.

With one thousand arms I will serve you; with one thousand eyes I can behold you.

Wind, carry me to the table of my hungry family in Vietnam.
