Wild Grapes by Wang Ping

 What hand brings light into your tendrils?
 What light paints such red and green along your meridians?
 What force fills up your veins with sap of passion, will to live?
 What heart gives you the courage to live, under any condition or hostility?
 What wind, what poetry, what key, opens the secret door to your zest for life?
