Taipei Night Markets

It was just over a year ago
Back when I was close to you
Back when we use night markets
As our rendesvouz.

Scattered Clothes, cd's, dvd's
Foot wears and even adult toys
Hanging ducks, chickens
And all kinds of meat too.

Roaming there is fun...
It is exciting!
Hiding ourselves over the seller's stalls
Avoiding people that we knew.

But at the end of it
The moment we sit in our secluded spot
As we stare, hug and kiss
Pays off every single minute of wait.

Reminded me of my nights back when
I was stil in Taipei, Taiwan...

Have fun guys! Blessed sunday!


  1. secret meetings....always fun.

    have a wonderful sunday my friend

  2. I like the cheer you found in hiding, and how "Hard to do it with iPad" mixed into the poem, as part of its spontaneous feel.

  3. I like this! Great take on the prompt!

  4. Oh, I like the way you used the prompt! Nice one.

  5. I always like it when you write about something that makes (or made) you happy, JJ. I really enjoyed this.

  6. Wow. I easily fall in this kind of poetry. Thumbs up! :)

  7. Your poem is filled with sweetness and tenderness ... I love the evoking of old feelings.

  8. Dear JJ: There is a definite thrilling feeling here- an exotic yet known locale and the excitment of a new romance;

    as we stare hug and kiss

    Really enjoyed those memories as I share these feelings along with you. Chiccoreal

  9. Clandestine lends more heat than the sun. Nice!

  10. Hmmm, I think your recent separation may have influenced the way you interpreted the image. In any case, it is a wonderful poem!

  11. Night markets, food stalls, pirated discs ... laughter, fun - great piece!

  12. Interesting take on the photo... enjoyed reading this one :)

  13. We need some night markets in America,
    that is way obvious. We kind of have some
    but obviously none with the energy and
    allure of your nights in Tapaei. A very
    romantic and heartfelt romp, sir.
