DOVE – 伊沙 Yi Sha

四月 3, 2020

Yi Sha
DOVE

In my sights straight in the distance,
a white dove
goes through a fire up to the sky.
Still it flies,
changed into black.
Maybe just its shadow,
its soul
flying. Maybe the ash
can keep the shape of a dove
high up and fly.

叶臻:YOU SAY WHEN YOU DIE IN FOREIGN PARTS, REEDS IN THE WIND WILL STAND IN – TO A POETRY FRIEND WHO DIED FROM THE VIRUS

YOU SAY WHEN YOU DIE IN FOREIGN PARTS, REEDS IN THE WIND WILL STAND IN – TO A POETRY FRIEND WHO DIED FROM THE VIRUS

Last summer
we walked at the reservoir,
saw how the reeds
swayed in the wind.
Two dragonflies,
one on top of the other,
landed on a reed.
Then
the wind picked up,
they couldn’t stay,
had to fly up
in the wind doing their thing,
one stacked on another
up in the air.

just around the river bend

just around the river bend
fair around the next great curve
honest in another life
just around the river bend
