I wasn’t expecting that I were to write poems. Until, the beautiful sentences of poems flew out of my heart, like singing of morning birds. So came the Moon Creek – Seeking the Secret and Beauty of This World through Poems and Images.
For many years, I was an engineer, consultant, entrepreneur, traveling all over the world. I was working with people from different cultures, while reading business books, poems, and philosophies and visiting art museums, in Beijing, in Paris, in Mexico City, in San Francisco, in New York etc.
Many years ago, I read a line "Live life like an experiment". It touched me. I began to walk the road less traveled, with many detours.
Moon Creek is a real small creek flowing behind our stone house surrounded by the pine trees under the moon. During the pandemic, my scope of activities was reduced to the village where I live. It is near the PGA golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, one of the greatest golfers of all time. Almost every day, I went out for a walk, through the tree-line boulevard, towards the quiet pool in the woods. The mystery veil of the world was lifted before my eyes, and everything in front of my eyes was so fresh, like dewdrops on small red berries in the morning.
These poems are written on the photos which I took when writing these poems. When you come out of the book, you may be able to see the small flowers on the side of the road in full bloom, hear the birds sing over the treetops, feel the soft wind blowing across your cheeks, and the white clouds in the sky changing shapes. This is your happiness. It is also my happiness.
PREFACE for Moon Creek
By Eric C. Wentworth, Author of A Life Plan and Co-author of Mindful Career
The poet Percy Bysshe Shelley said “Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar.” Poetry is emotion expanded to encompass new and random expression. It’s open to interpretation. It calls out to a higher level of consciousness than we ordinarily assign to words. It is uniquely human.
In the ethereal beauty of her fascinating wordplay Enso Huang has created a masterpiece in Moon Creek.
Her poems will make you think. And feel. And wonder.
They challenge you to interpret her words in the light of your personal experience and the world as it is now . . . and as it should be. Only someone like Enso Huang, who melds Eastern and Western thinking from a thoughtful woman’s introspective musings, can write like this.
You’ll want to read these poems more than once. And at different times in your life. And each time you will glean a new insight of beauty or understanding of the world. As E.B. White said, “A poet dares be just so clear and no clearer. He unzips the veil from beauty but does not remove it. A poet utterly clear is a trifle glaring.”
And so, you will discover as you read Moon Creek.
