Everything is Illusory
It is the third time I come here.
The heat is closer like rainstorm coming.
I hide in a small hotel with muggy air and could not sleep.
Is that true?
I see the endless lotuses cover the edge of sky.
Suddenly, I hear a slight sound from water.
I find a toad sitting on a lotus leaf and try to say something to me.
I reach for it but toad emits a poison.
I am so scared that I fall down into the lake.
The cool feeling touches my brain.
I wake up.
Wet is surrounded me.
The weather outside window is still heavy.
When I grab my watch, it’s three o’ clock in the early morning, I cannot wait to strolling around.
There is a hidden alley with muddy stones at the back door of little hotel.
I squeeze it through sideways because lots of mottled bamboo are planted on both sides of alley.
Then a pond shows up in front of me.
Several lotuses grow as tall as me.
I hear someone whispering my name and I look around.
A sound comes from other side.
I touch the mist and it disappears.
A toad is seated on a lotus leave with its mouse opening.
