Some thoughts on my poems from a friend, Xiaomin Jiao

“Being-in-the-world” before we realize
The “how’ of being-there before we know “how”
The “how” develops with “being-there-with”
Then comes the “why”

Possibilities of being-there-with all
Opportunities of being-there-with some
Each opportunity comes for a reason
Some become the “whys” of the “hows”

Sharing common world
Understanding the differences
Developing interest of exploring
Finding the “why”
Practicing the “how” of relating

To relate
Responses of being related
The changeable “hows’, as you say
Found in relating
