RETURN – 蓝冰 Lan Bing

Lan Bing

From the foot of the mountain all the way to the top
no trace of a person,
no sound of a bird.
Mighty snow
made the world very silent.
Sky and earth deserted.
I hoped to find a companion,
even a stranger.
But in the season for fires,
no furnace was lit.
Alone going up,
alone coming down,
I could only trace my own footprints.

Translated by MW, May 2020
