A Room of My Own: Yellow Ribbons Haiku

for the spiritual followers of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, Chinese revolutionary and founding father of the Republic of China,  who said, "The revolution is not yet successful, the comrades still need to strive for the future." (革命尚未成功,同志仍需努力)

a sea of waving hands
with yellow ribbons
Hong Kong's skyline at dawn

Note: Occupy Central Pro-Democracy protestors have adopted the yellow ribbon as their symbol. Below is my another poem about the Occupy Central movement:

as if
stars were spread thick
across the Hong Kong sky:
a mobile light vigil
in the Central District
