《我是云》I am the Cloud

《我是云》I am the Cloud

我在山上
看云是海
我在山下
看云是山
我问云
你是海
还是山?
云说
我是云

On top of a Mountain
I saw the Cloud
and thought it was the Sea
at the foot of a Mountain
I saw the Cloud
and thought it was the Mountain
I asked the Cloud
Are you the Sea
or the Mountain?
The Cloud replied
I am the Cloud

  1. 你的诗歌,如你般流经心灵的泉水,赞!

    • 我喜欢我爸爸给我取的名字,祈泉,这名字是他对世界一个非常简单请求,祈求我从世界那里得到清新的泉水。我希望我没有辜负爸爸的期望。

      谢谢你,Sydney。

  2. You question yourself and then answer yourself , confusing the readers and then giving them an opportunity to read it over and over again until they have the capability to ask the question to themselves and then answer them back too!
    You are amazing!!

    • Your comment is adorable. When I read my own writing, I have a laugh myself, I don’t know exactly the reason, it is just funny the conversation I have created. When I read your comment, I have a laugh too every time I read it again, I did not know that I have created such a confusing state to the reader =D. Some poems I written in a very special way, for example this one, I have been thinking for weeks now how to write about clouds being like a mountain, then I saw a beautiful cloud in the morning that day, so so beautiful with a brush of the morning red. I took a snap with the phone too. Then I arrived at my work place and think about other poems. However, this one come suddenly and I wrote it down in just a few minutes. I still have the scribble on my notebook. I hope I can show it to you later.

      Thank Naima, you are amazing too!

  3. Life is all about perspective, isn’t it?
    Lovely the way you worded it…

  4. When I see this photo, I believe there is a castle or mansion within the cloud……
    I remembered Jack and the beanstalk….
