Rice sweets, Meet



Round, round rice sweets
  grandma gave  
for the first brightest night of the Lunar New year: 
traditionally, a big celebration day in Korea.
The sweets embracing rice, grain syrup, oil, air. 

They are likely to be brittle even by a little bit of pressure, so
holding it lightly, gently, try one bite.
Rice powder softly spreading in the air. 
Spreading in the mouth, 

And, love.  

Listening to the story of mom's childhood, 
again, one bite.

Meet the moon. 
Meet the sun. 
Meet me. 
Embrace me.
