《静与歌唱》The Silence and the Singing

我问夜,
妳和窸窣说了什么?
夜回答说,
我告诉了窸窣,
我的静默,
只为等待你的歌唱。
我问窸窣,
你对夜歌唱了什么?
窸窣回答说,
我告诉了夜,
妳的静默,
是我的一双耳朵,
让我听到了自己的歌唱。

I asked the Night,
What is your whisper to the Cricket?
The Night replied,
I whispered to the Cricket,
My Silence, is the wait for your Singing.
I then asked the Cricket,
What do you sing to the Night?
The Cricket replied,
I sang to the Night,
Your Silence, is my ears,
that I can listen to my own Singing.

//I like the reply from the cricket, I can’t explain it myself, I just feel something special, dreamy, understanding, many feelings, I don’t know how to express them in words.//

  1. beautiful imagination kee.

    • Thank you Sharmishtha. Today I just asked a friend if he knows someone who have published some books, just to get an initial idea about really getting into publish a book. I also asked some about their opinion about my writing. I hope they don’t frown upon reading my works =).

      • glad to know that you have taken the first step. i am sure that you will get an offer from a publisher as soon as you get your works appraised.

      • It is not optimistic here, but I am not in a hurried, I want to do most of the thing myself here, that’s why recently I bought a new mac book. I want to write a few books hopefully, one about poetry, one about photography, and one about adventure stories of mine =).

        I can use the ibook author, a free app comes with the mac book, and to write a book, and to design it. I like designing anyway. If I can find someone to edit the book, and make sure everything is right, then I can publish to the ibooks. May be it will takes months, or years, but it is ok, it is just my pass time hobbies =).

  3. I love it. I don’t speak Chinese, but I can read about 60% of the Chinese because of my Korean.🙂

    • Dear David,

      I guess nowadays Korean does not learn Chinese words anymore, and you still know 60%, that is amazing! I am really really glad that I have giving you the joy in my writing =)!

      Thank you!

    “Your Silence, is my ears,
    that I can listen to my own Singing.”
    What a sweet expression dear😀

    • Dear Land of Fun,

      Thank you for your comment. I tried to look for your name in your blog, but I could not find it. I hope that I can still write some more poems that have nice thoughts =), but my mind seems to be empty these few days.

      Have a nice weekend!
      kc
