Yew Tree (Kingsley Vale, West Sussex, UK)

"Y" Man on the Hill

Yggdrasil Tree (Norse Mythology)

The Y in My Name

The Y in my name may refer
to Yuin, the middle ideogram
of my Chinese name, "to grant"
belonging to a family poem.

The Y-Path of Pythagoras
tells me to take the right road—
follow Sage-Kings Yao and Yu
& Yellow Emperor's teachings.

Y is like why: yearning answers—
Y in the circle's radii for
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—
and Christ reaching on the Cross.

Visit Y-Trees: Yew and Yggdrasil—
6000 miles cruise down the Yangtze
and Yellow River or grand tour
of Yosemite and Yellowstone.

Yogi yearns for yak's milk, yogurt,
and a yurt— his wishes granted
by Star Wars Yoga-master Yoda
at Zen Temple in Yokohama.

Sports news from yesteryear's yore—
Yankees catcher Yogi Berra in ten
World Series, Steve Young threw six
touchdowns in Super Bowl XXIX.

Paul McCartney sings "Yesterday",
Yehudi Menuhin plays violin,
Yo-Yo Ma plays the cello,
Yeats reads "Sailing to Byzantium"—

You'll not find such a yummy cast.
Yin & Yang in Yi-Ching— symbol
night & day— James Joyce Ulysses:
"and yes I said yes I will Yes"

I'm standing on the hill— arms raised
resembling the letter "Y"—
or shape of wine glass receiving
the starry blessings of heaven.
