《金色的浪花》The Splash of the Golden Waves

秋天的山林,
是夕阳下的海,
当云儿匆忙的飞过了远处的天空,
那浪花般的金黄色的叶子,
便轻轻的打在了我的身上,
然后掉落了。

The Forest of Autumn in the mountains,
is the Sea in Sunset, and when
the sky afar the clouds are rushing,
the Golden Leaves,
like the splash of the waves,
hit me tenderly,
and fall onto the ground.

//the sea in Sunset, reflecting the sunlight like many golden leaves, and here the same analogy is used but in a reversed way. I was thinking about writing the wind, but I feel that to put the rushing of the clouds is a good indication of the blow of a breeze. I want to create a feeling of distance, so I contrasted the clouds afar, and the leaves that are close to me. I like the falling of the leaves, so beautiful in motion, and so I have imagined them as the splash of the waves in slow motion.//

  1. I am loving your poems more now!! Cause now the description most probably reveals your perception and I can compare mine with yours – poetry really is magical!!

    • Dear Naima

      It is amazing if you have a different perception, because mostly people won’t even think about the ‘picture’ of the poem (it is true that I put a little bit too many colors in my writing), and it amazed me too and make me wonder what is your perception, because I can only think of mine =).

      I agree, Poetry is something magical!

      • Cheers to the magic that boosts our lifestyle!!
        -Naima.

      • For my education in the secondary school, I needed to remember a few hundreds of Chinese poems that are written about 1800-1000 year ago, so I am always in love with poems🙂, I am glad that you too, is in love with the poetry.

        Love

      • Wow.. Goodness, I think I could have never done that! I am so bad at memorizing!!
        -Naima.

      • Wow, you are a very early bird! Do have a good rest!🙂

        KC

      • So are you🙂
        You have good rest too!
        -Naima.

      • It is 6:30am, and the time I start to walk through the wood, and reach the place I work in 25 minutes, in the University. 🙂

        Thanks Naima

      • Wow! You’re super fit!!
        You’re always welcome.

  2. i like your poem very much, need to learn from you

    • Dear Sydney

      I think that you are too humble, you must have more life experiences than me =). I just put my heart on everyone I love, and anything I do, and then I like to dream, still like the very first time I look at the night sky when I was very young.

      I will come to visit your prose =), I just have a glance of them, and would love to give my comments, and compliments.

      Thank you!

  3. i am so waiting for your poetry book!

    • Seriously, I am thinking to include your painting if there is really a book. Now I am squeezing every second to write, so the book can be a heavy task to me. It is still in the dream stage, but I know your situation, I also want to promote your art work, and to let you have an income =). There is no definite promise yet, but I put it in my heart.

      and, beside a few of the people, like Naima, Anarya, and you, and a few others really like my poems, I don’t have high expectation of the book =), but it is a dream of a life time, and there is nothing to be afraid of.
