M is for moonlight.

Thank you, moonlight.

When darkness comes, and there’s not much to see,

I watch the bright moon, as it watches me.

The birds are graceful, gliding in the breeze.

I find pure bliss between the lakes and trees.

Kyaw (Cho) immigrated to the United States from Myanmar at the age of seven, barely speaking a word of English. Determined to learn the new language, he spent most of his childhood visiting public libraries in Queens, New York. After stumbling upon numerous romantic novels and human anatomy books, he would later come home with various uncomfortable questions for his parents. These days, he continues to visit local libraries. However, his wife and two know-it-all sons now accompany him.
