《光和影》Light and Shadow

光和影,跳着舞,
在盛夏午后,
无云天空的树下。
叶儿在风里,
也在轻轻的哼唱。
而鸟儿此刻,
是沉睡的叶子。

The Light and the Shadow, are Dancing,
in this afternoon of Summer,
under a Tree, and under the cloudless sky.
The Leaves in the wind,
are singing the song of Lullaby,
and the Birds now, are
Leaves in their dreams.

//Here the Light and the Shadow refers to the sunlight that passed through the leaves, and the shadow, the leaves.  At noon, the heat, and the clapping of the leaves like the lullaby, have made the world to feel lazy and sleepy, and the birds takes their rest in the shade of the tree.//

  1. I love how you’re putting the whole meaning of this poem at end of each post.

    • I often try to write the poem using the simple term, because I myself cannot get the meaning if I am using complicated words. Even then, my friends found that my poems are just simply, too simple. So I decided to write down my interpretation, and feeling🙂.

      • I think writing down interpretation and your own feelings towards what you wrote will help others to appreciate more what you shared with us. I can be slow sometimes hahah.

      • Thank you for your lovely comments, and I will follow your advice =)!

  2. this is beautiful imagination KC.

    • I still feel that I need to improve the last 2-3 lines, hopefully I will come back to it some days later, when my mind is clear =).

      Thank you.

      • you can try that, but this one is very dreamy. a poet knows the best, but after editing dont delete the previous one, you may later want to revert back to that.

      • Thank you for the good suggestion, I will do that.

  3. You make me admire the Nature over and over again!! This is so beautiful!
    With love,

    • You know the time I like most, is to lie down on the grass, and look at the blue blue sky, and the clouds that are passing by, with the smell of the grass, and the earth by your side, and some rustling between the grasses, I just feel very calm, and after that, everything is just simply poetic🙂.

      Love,
      kc

      • Oh my goodness, this is o very beautiful! I have tried it plenty of times – especially in the mornings or when the night is DARK!!
        -Naima.

      • This is wonderful! I wish I can talk about my experiences too, but rather not,….because I want you to know everyone has their own best experiences in enjoying Nature =)!

      • Right, we all may have the a pair of eyes to see but our angles to watch things is always different!
        -Naima.
