Mooncake

Once I looked at the moon

Thinking it was a floating cake

Or maybe a lost balloon

I wish it to be a cake I could make

Four years ago, a sunny September

A field trip to the south with a friend

A petite Hongkongnese girl to remember

My first mooncake, such a taste to befriend

At Meimart*, last week,

I grabbed some mooncakes,

of different flavors

Moon Festival, Moon goddess,

grant me a blessing

As a striver to harvest,

this is one of an endeavor

Eating mooncake, a reward to me,

coz work is really stressing

After eating mooncake, a plot

In a ‘what if’ silly daily life scene

A neighbor who plays lottery a lot

Comes to me asking the missing number on the cake I have eaten.

‘It’s in in my stomach! ‘ I replied in an unapologetic way.

I giggled.

Oh, what a scene.

*Meimart = one of the biggest Chinese grocery store in Dili.
