TANG DYNASTY HORSE – 伊沙

Yi Sha
TANG DYNASTY HORSE

tang dynasty horse
fat
sturdy legs
big behind
tail like a whip
leaps into the sky
flies through the heavens
one long neigh
bloody neck
and no head

Translated by MW in June 2018

 

Yi Sha
PFERD AIS DER TANG-ZEIT

pferd aus der tang-zeit
wohlgenährt
dicke beine
großer hintern
peitschenschwanz
steigt in die luft
fliegt durch den himmel
ein langes wiehern
blutiger hals
und kein kopf

唐朝的马|伊沙

唐朝的马
很肥
腿粗
屁股大
尾巴如鞭
腾空而起
天马行空
一声长嘶
血脖子
没有头

NACHRICHTEN AUS SCHÜTZENDEN HÖHLEN

wanderwege perfekt angelegt
nach dem wandern am besten obst
in den 80er jahren hat man entdeckt
am 35. breitengrad schmeckt dieser apfel sehr süß
im falun-tempel der tang-zeit
wächst eine föhre aus der pagode
inschriften unter mao zerstört
einer sagt mao schrieb genial
ein alter mönch mag meine haare
einer sagt tianjin tausend sind tot
oder noch mehr

BERG3

崆洞消息

爬山的路修得很棒
爬山以后很想吃水果
上世纪八十年代发现的
北纬35度苹果真的很甜
唐朝法輪寺
老松树长出宋朝的塔
文革毁了碑文
有人说老毛写得好
有老和尚摸我的毛
有人说天津死了一千
或许更多

Space Poems

九月 6, 2013

Lydia and Julia. My tastes are simple, mostly. No Fehlschmelzen. Although that word makes me think of Ai Weiwei. Rare words. Rare earths. Che, fourth tone. Like the chai of demolition, but with earth instead of hand. In a famous poem by Du Fu, On Top Of Yueyang Pagoda. Che, separation. Of Wu and Chu. Still great realms, 1300 years later. Wu is Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou and so on. Wu-dialect of Chinese, as different from Mandarin as French is different from German or Dutch, at least. Wu and Chu. Chu is Sichuan and so on. Dongting lake separates Wu and Chu. Dongting lake seen from the pagoda. Heaven and earth, blablabla, the light on the lake. No letters from home. North still at war. Writing this, leaning at the railings, crying. 昔聞洞庭水, 今上岳陽樓. 吳楚東南坼, 乾坤日夜浮. 親朋無一字, 老病有孤舟. 戎馬關山北, 憑軒涕泗流. Xi wen Dongting shui, jin shang Yueyang lou. Don’t know what kind of dialect Du Fu used. Not Mandarin, that’s for sure. More something like Wu, probably. Which I don’t speak and can’t write. Heard of Dongting lake, now I climb the stairs. Wu Chu dong nan che, qian kun ri ye fu. Here comes the “che”. Rare word, in present Mandarin. Dong nan, east and south. Wu is southeast from Chu. Heard of Dongting lake, now I climb the stairs. Wu and Chu divorced; Sky reflected, night. Not a word from home. Sick and old, a boat. War steeds roam the north. I lean here and cry. Five syllables per verse. Yes, much like Haikus. Yi Sha has space poems. 2 from 2003. One about first signs of spring, lunar new year, mahjong, the space shuttle Columbia, fear of flying, freedom. The other one about space, father and son, skies at night, North Korea. This 2nd 1 was in the FAZ on June 26, 2013, when the Shenzhou 10 capsule returned to earth.

Last week, in the run up to our website relaunch and the live event, Spacewe started an open call and asked for your short ‘Space Poems’. The call is closed now and we would like to thank everyone who took part!! We received 15 poems, sent to us in English and German via twitter, facebook and as blog comments and enjoyed reading the poems a lot. We hope you all do!

 

… and here are the Space Poems …

 

daybreak

 

when we credulously

reached for the clouds

a clamour

from the mouth of

a careless fish

by Achim Wagner (via twitter)

 

 

words are vinds which blow roofs

There’s no sound in a space poem, only the charged particles of solar wind.

Wang Wei: Abschied 王維-送別

八月 9, 2012

送别

下馬飲君酒,
問君何所之。
君言不得意,
歸卧南山陲。
但去莫复問,
白雲無盡时。

Wang Wei

abschied

steig vom pferd und trink,
wohin reitest du?
kehrst betruebt zurueck
suedlich ins gebirg.
geh, ich frag nicht mehr
wenn die wolken ziehn.

Wang Wei

to see you go

you get off and drink with me
and i ask you where you’re riding
you have not been satisfied
turn to southern border mountains
and i won’t ask you again
clouds are streaming without end.

清平樂

别来春半,
觸目愁腸斷。
砌下落梅如雪亂,
拂了一身還滿。

雁来音訊無憑,
路遥歸夢難成。
離恨恰似春草,
更行更遠還生。

zwei gedichte nach wang wei (701-761)

相思

红豆生南国,
春来发几枝
愿君多采撷
此物最相思

remembering each other

red beans in the south
sprout how many twigs
please pick more this spring
i will think of you

rote bohnen pflueck,
seit dem fruehling schon
wachsen sie bei dir.
pflueck nur viel davon!
