Vinh Dang
Poet
The poem reflects my effort to understand and mingle with the local community. Language was a barrier when I first arrived here. To better understand Syracuse, I would go with friends to the farmersí market to see the traditional weekend activities of American people. The market reminded me of the open air markets in Vietnam. One of the main differences is there is almost no bargaining between buyers and sellers, and everything happens so peacefully here. I first saw the market in flower season. There were so many kinds of flowers in many colors. I was surprised that some flowers, which I only found in the wild in Vietnam, were cherished, planted, and taken care of carefully here. The poem is what I instantly felt when seeing all the beautiful flowers.

Shining farm market
Season of splendid colors
Flowers kiss flowers
