《归航》Homing

River of the heart

《归航》Homing

我,不再是那前进的海浪
追逐异乡海滩上的脚印
我,只是一艘远航的渔船
满载的是归航的心情

I, am no more those waves
chasing after footprints on the foreign shore
I, am just a fishing boat after a long voyage
loaded with a boat of love heading for my home

《觉醒》Awakening

River of the heart

《觉醒》Awakening

静默
是那些生命
最黑暗的夜里
的脚步声
震醒了
灵魂

她睁开了双眼
寻找着灯塔

Silence
those footsteps
of darkest nights
of life
have shaken
the soul

She opens her eyes
to search for the beacon

A little secret
2016/07/28

River of the heart

《一个秘密》A little secret

我问花儿
为什么爱
没有细胞
却能生长
没有血液
却能存活
没有神经
却能感受
不在天堂
却很幸福

花儿说,这
是我和世界
一个小小的秘密

I ask the Flower
why love
can grow
without a cell
can live
without the blood
can sense
without a nerve
is feeling blessed
without being in Heaven

The Flower replies, this
is my little secret
with the World

《贝壳》The Seashell
2016/07/27

River of the heart

《贝壳》The seashell

海浪是海
对大地
永不停歇的呼唤
而山是大地
对海
在沉默中永恒的思念
我在海与
大地之间的沙滩上
静静的躺着
在没有誓言
的等待中
听着风和我诉说着
你们的故事

The waves
are the eternal call
of the sea to the earth
and the mountains
are the eternal love in silence
of the earth for the sea
in between them
I lie quietly
in the waiting
without a promise
I listen to your stories
as told by the wind

幸福的大门
一直敞开着
而人们
却在门外徘徊
幸福问
你们在犹豫什么
人们回答说
等你进来

The door of Happiness
has long being opened
and outside the door
the people are lingering
the Happiness asks
who are you waiting for
the people reply
for you to come in

The bad weather

River of the heart

《坏天气》 The bad weather

沉默走到了雷的身边
悄悄的告诉雷
闪电已经来了
雷他不自觉的
就叫了起来
而沉默一下子
就不见踪影了

The Silence went to the Thunder
and whispered to him
the Lightning has come
the Thunder screamed involuntarily
upon hearing this
and in the next second the Silence has gone
and could not be found anywhere else

The rising moon

River of the heart

《月儿升起来了》 The rising moon

夜幕下垂了
妳在遥远的地平线
缓缓的升了起来
好像有一双看不见的手
牵引着我的心
让我对妳的思念
轻轻的打在了爱的海岸上
让泪水溅湿了我的衣襟

The night falls
and you rise slowly from afar on the horizon
there must be a pair of invincible hands
that is carrying my heart
and bringing my thought of you
to the shore of love with a tender splash
making the tears drop upon my collar

《爱的颜色》The Color of Love

花儿问叶子
山对树林的爱是绿色的
海对天的爱是蓝色的
那你对我的爱是什么颜色?
叶子回答说
亲爱的,是妳喜爱的颜色

The Flower asked the Leaf
the Love of the Mountain to the Forest is green in color
of the Sea to the Sky is blue in color
and what is the color of your Love to me?
The Leaf replied
my Dear, it’s your favorite color

《流淌》Flowing
2016/07/19

River of the heart

《流淌》 flowing

这夜晚的河流
自那宇宙的边缘
静静的流淌着
然后往上倾泻
汇聚成天空的瀑布
又继续着她
走进我的心灵的旅程
好像山间里嬉戏的小溪
她会在我不知道的地方
跟随着我的文字里
继续静静的流淌着

This River of the night
flows quietly
from the edge of Universe
and splashes upwards
into the waterfall of the sky
with her journey continues
into my heart
like the playful streams of the mountains
only to emerge in unknown places
and to continue to flow quietly
with my words

有人说

我问幸福
我是妳的什么?
幸福回答说

Some people say
Wealth is the Bliss
some people also say
Bliss is the Wealth
I ask the Bliss
who am I to you?
The Bliss replies
A cloud in my dream.

The courage and a promise to Earth from a small nation
2016/04/06

There is a country sandwiched between two of the greatest civilization and the world most populated countries, India and China. It has only 0.7 million inhabitants in a 40 thousands square meter area. Its population is 8 times less but with an area 60 times bigger than Singapore. Most importantly, this country has the courage to truly change the world we are living to a better place. They make a promise no any other country dare to make, and they live a living no other developed country dare to emulate. This is Bhutan. Here is the promise from Bhutan. So what is our promise to Earth?

Photography in the National Gallery Singapore
2016/04/04

About 6 months ago I quit my research job and started my photography business. I am not sure where the path will lead me. Most importantly I think  that I am stupid enough to dare to make a bold change in my life. After all, we only live once. I will occasionally post some links about photography from my new blog site, jupiterstudio.com.sg. I still want to maintain my wordpress blog here purely as place for a more spiritual communication with my blog friends, i.e. about poetry, arts, photography, love, and life. I hope you will enjoy too some works and words from my another blog site.

Thank you for the kind support and love from friends around the World!

The interpretation of Life (II): A big dream and a routine life
2015/10/20

I quit my job as a researcher a couple of months ago. It was my passion to be a scientist, to understand the nature, and to discover a whole new world. The burning flame of this passion is subsiding now, because everyday I am reading news about how human has transformed our world with the technology in worst unimaginable ways. Science and technology has certainly ‘improved’ our life with some conveniences, such as how you can see my writing from another corner of the world in an instant. We are enjoying our lives at the expenses of our future generations and other living things on this planet.

I loved the story of the book ‘Jonathan Livingstone Seagull’. It is about a seagull who dreams to become better in flying with wings rather than just to use the seagull’s wings for finding food in a routine life. The mentioned seagull wants to learn something different each and everyday. It is a story about pursuing a dream with our heart. Is not this a reflection of my life? When I look back to the history of mankind since the industrial revolution, I realise a little bit more about the world around us. The dream we dream, is not an individual dream, or is isolated. Our dreams are always linked with the world through someone or something in a vast invincible networks that we do not perceive.

This world is so complicated with the networks that we can see, but also those that we cannot see. The scientists or others might have their own big dreams to understand the world around us, but eventually these understandings will be translated into technology to help us in our routine life in gaining more wealth by exploring the resources of this planet, or to manipulate the world around us. We simply reduce the meaning of happiness into a simple equation by mixing it with hunger for power, fame and wealth. So what should I do in life? My decision of quitting my job may not cause a ripple in this world, but I wish it is the first step of my journey to seek the happiness for myself, and may be for the world. I want to be in the part of a routine cycle for an extraordinary life for love, that is how much we have taken from this world, give it back to this world and to our future generations, including our love and happiness.

老天托我给你一个口信…好好的爱我。
GOD HAS A MESSAGE FOR YOU….LOVE ME.

图片小故事
我常常对人类某些想法感到很困惑。我们为什么要孩子来到世上然后又告诉他们世界就是这么的残酷。我想,残酷的不是世界,是我们自己。不是吗?我相信如果我们愿意给世界一点一滴的爱,爱会汇聚成一条河流,让她流经的世界会更加的美丽。这也是你的梦想吗?

THE LITTLE STORY ABOUT THE PHOTO
I am often very confused with some human behaviors and thoughts. Why would we want to bring our children to this World and ask them to face the cruel reality of the World later on? For me it is not the World that is cruel, it is ourselves. Isn’t it? I believe if every of us is willing to give a little drop of love for this World, love will flow like a river and to make the World more beautiful wherever the river goes. Aren’t you sharing the same vision with me?

title_Life_a lack of understanding_1280

我们内心的不平静,是不是因为我们还不了解自己内心里住着的那位朋友呢?
Isn’t that the untamed feeling in our mind a sign of the lack of understanding of the friend that lives in our heart?

– 祈泉,2014年10月23日于新加坡

图片小故事
这照片是在新加坡麦里芝蓄水池拍的。那里是城市里的天堂,因为有一大片树林。有多大呢?好吧,这片树林绕一圈回到原地,需要走至少4个小时。或许你说不是很大,但是用心和自然交流我们需要数字来证明吗?如果我的家有一个后院,而在后院里有自己的小花园,我想,天堂就是在我家后院,不是吗?我肯定是这样想的。我希望人们不要小看那小小而卑微的数字,像树林和我们的小花园一样,那里隐藏了我们难以用凡人的聪明和智慧所能理解的幸福。

THE LITTLE STORY ABOUT THE PHOTO
This photo was taken at the Macritchie reservoir. The place is a heaven of the city, because of the large patch of the reserved forest. How large is the place exactly? OK, to go around the forest needs at least 4 hours of hiking. May be you might not agree with me it is big, but do we really need numbers to support our care and love for the nature? If I have a home with a backyard, and in the backyard I have my own little flower garden, don’t you think that the heaven is in my home’s backyard? I certainly think so. I wish that we will never underestimate the humble number of something, like the forest or our little garden, the hidden joy they can bring is beyond our wit and wisdom could reach and understand.

Your lovely comment is always encouraging.
