In the day
You are silent
as same as those lamps
But night time
you were lighted up by darkness
Like me, withered
Complete the bloom
Each snowflake is accompanied by a metaphor
A small winter butterfly sleeping on my forehead,
I don't think this a dream that the cicadas singing around the red cherry tree,
A cloud of white butterflies
Stopping and then gliding down.
It's an unexpected moment
an unexpected meeting with no reason.
For a long time, the idea of writing has been raised from
It's silhouette straddles,
the light source in the distance quickly disappeared.
Oh, a small white butterfly
that has a noble rich past life,
flying out of slender river in this life
Cross the sea, bring its own mission.
For the sky
For the earth
Or just for one person
A big snow falls deeply in his heart.
Translated from Chinese to
English by the poet
