Walking towards that strange world

[No. 91] Walking towards that strange world 走向那陌生的世界 I listen to the sound of your footstep when you are approaching from afar it travels with the wind that bring a kind of fragrance that I have yet to know the tenderness in your voice like the sunlight that is slowly opening up the clouds in the darkness of my world it touches my heart with a temperature and with an unfamiliar warmth as I am making an effort to open my eye and to see your face in your bosom but only to fall into a deeper place with strange colors in the sky and under the sky I see we chase after one and another happily O these strange unknowns I promise that I will open up their secrets for you with all my love Photo taken in Brunei in 2014 #riveroftheheartblog #riveroftheheart #poem #poetry #sgpoetry #wordpress #wordpressblog #instagrampoetry #instagrampoet #instapoetry #instapoet #writing #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #qiquan #祈泉 #strangeworld #陌生的世界 #爱 #诗 #诗歌 #文字 #部落格

我听到了妳由远至近的轻盈的脚步声
在风里夹带着我不知道的香味
妳温柔的声音
像慢慢拨开我黑暗的世界的云层的阳光
轻轻的触摸着我的心扉
让我渐渐的感受到了温度和一种陌生的温暖
在妳的怀抱里我用力的要睁开眼睛想看看你的脸庞
可是我却掉进了一个更深的有着各种颜色天空的地方
在那片天空底下我看到了你和我快乐的追逐着彼此
O 那陌生的未知
我答应我会用我全部的爱去给妳揭开它们所隐藏的秘密

I listen to the sound of your footstep when you are approaching from afar
it travels with the wind that bring a kind of fragrance that I have yet to know
the tenderness in your voice
like the sunlight that is slowly opening out the clouds in the darkness of my world
it touches my heart
with a temperature and with an unfamiliar warmth
as I am making an effort to open my eye and to see your face in your bosom
but only to fall into a deeper place with strange colors in the sky
and under the sky I see we chase after one and another happily
O these strange unknowns
I promise that I will open up their secrets for you with all my love

A gesture to love
2016/09/20

《给爱的回应》A gesture to love

展颜
是眼睛
鼻子
耳朵
嘴巴
甚至头发
和皮肤
皮肤下的血液
血液里的氧气
给心的爱
的回应
一种相视而笑
无言的幸福

The light of happiness on our face
is a respond
of the eyes
the nose
the mouth
even the hair
and the skin
the blood underneath
and the oxygen in the blood
to the love of our heart
they are smilling through meeting eyes
sharing the bliss without a word

When your eyes fall on me
2016/09/09

《当你看着我的时候》When your eyes fall on me

你注视着远方自己的梦
留下了我远远的在你的后头
我喊着你的名字却担心那声音
要跨越无数光年的旅程
而你却突然回过了头来
问我一切是否安好
我说很好
当你看着了我的眼睛

You gaze into your dream afar
leaving me behind so far
I call out your name but worry the sound
that it will travel in light years to come
but suddenly you turn around
asking me if everything is fine
and yes I say
the moment you look into my eyes

A sweet home
2016/09/08

《甜蜜的家》 A sweet home

有没有一个人在家里等待着你?
那个当你打开了那扇爱的门她就会给你第一个最真挚的拥抱的人

Do you have someone to wait for you at home, to embrace you the first moment you open the door of love?

Returning me my nights

《归还我吧我的夜晚》 Returning me my nights

我向上天祈求
再也不会有一只羊
会再受折磨
在人类无尽贪婪的不眠的夜里

I pray to Heaven
let there be no more sheep
to suffer into sleepless nights
of the black hole of human greed

Sometimes I see or read somethings bad but I do think of the bright side of life, sometimesI see or read somethings funny but I do also think of the dark side of life. O human, where are we heading to?

《拥抱生命》To hold life in my arms
2016/08/22

River of the heart

《拥抱生命》To hold life in my arms

告诉我吧
每一段人生的欢喜悲伤
是不是都有一个音符?
那我期待着
在这旅程的终点
坐在舞台下的我倾听着
这生命之歌
那最后的音符
将会是只带着幸福的
我掉下的的眼泪
而那最后的掌声
将是只留给自己的
我的微笑

Tell me please
if every happiness
and sorrow in life has a musical note?
O how I wish
at the end of this journey
in the audience I would listen
this song of life
the closing note of the music
will be my falling tears
only with happiness
and the final clapping
will be my smile
only to myself

Porto
2016/07/27

 

《波尔图》 Porto

美丽的波尔图
是妳的足迹
留在了我的心里
的一条小路上
我好几次用了妳的名字
在梦里呼唤着她

My beautiful Porto
you left your footprints
in a street of my heart
and I have called her
your name
many times in my dreams

The staircase to heaven
2016/07/22

 

《到天堂的阶梯》The staircase to heaven

有一天我发现了一个阶梯
从我的心连接到了天堂
天堂那里传来一个声音
告诉了我这些
你每一次对世界的一个微笑
可以更接近我一个梯级
你每一次对世界的善举
可以更接近我一万个梯级
你每一次给世界的关怀与爱
可以更接近我一百万个梯级
我向天堂的声音问道
可是我不知道你离我有多远
我需要多久才能到达你那里
天堂的声音回答我说
当你不需要再数
离我还有多少个梯级的时候
那个阶梯就会自然的消失
到时候你只是一步之遥
离打开在你心里一直等待着你的那一扇门

I discovered one day
a staircase connecting my heart to Heaven
and from Heaven I heard a voice
telling me about these
every time if you smile at the World
you will be one step closer to me
every time if you do a good deed for the World
you will be ten thousands steps closer to me
every time if you have given your care and love to the World
you will be a million steps closer to me
I asked the Voice
how long will I need to take to reach you
if I do not know the distance
the Voice replied
the time when you do not have to count
the steps you have covered to reach me
the staircase will then disappear
and you are just one step more
to open the door long waiting for you in your heart

《美好时光》A good time

just want to have your long hair in the air!

Your existence
2015/10/07

《妳的存在》Your existence

你知道吗,妳的存在
把我人生如一幅画
彩上了最美丽的风景

妳的眼睛
总是用神秘的方式
像星星那样和我说话

妳的微笑
把我拥入了阳光的怀里
一起跳跃在快乐的音符上

妳的喜怒哀乐
在我人生的四季里
让大地覆盖着天空里神殿肃穆的颜色

亲爱的,妳的存在
像是一支神奇的笔
书写着我生命里的惊喜

Do you know, your existence
paint my journey of Life
into a beautiful scenery

your eyes
whisper to me in a mysterious way
like the twinkling of stars

your smiles
cuddle me into sunshine
together we dance in musics of happiness

your emotions
are seasons of my life
blanketing the world with unspoken solemn colors of temples of heaven

my dear, your existence
is just like a magical pen
writing wonders of my life

*****
It has been exactly 11 months today that I have never posted anything on my blog. Working as a researcher has consumed me a lot of my mind and energy. Most importantly, I am always having doubts now on what science can bring to people their happiness. May be is just like our earnings, it does not necessary mean more or more efficient in earnings equal to our happiness in life. Therefore I quit my job about a month ago, and may be will look for my other passions to make a living which eventually brings me happiness, and the serenity.

Stories of you
2014/11/05

《那些关于你的故事》Stories of you

我很常写关于你的事
故事里没有泪水
却带着我一丝丝的悲伤
没有声音
却让我想起我们天真的欢笑
没有颜色
却像是一幅由许多连在一起的幸福片段的画
没有你的名字
却全都是和你一起生活的回忆

/送给那些和我曾经一起走过一段人生路程我挚爱的人

I often write about you
those stories without tear
but carry a little bit of my sadness
without sound
but remind me of our innocent laughter
without color
but like a painting that linked many events of happiness
without your name
but contain all the memory of  you

/Dedicated to my family and friends and those who I have loved and who have walked beside me for a part of journey of my life.

The beauty of the world

或许世界的美不在于她所隐藏起来的,而是在于我们的心。

May be the beauty of the World does not lie in its hidden perspective, perhaps it lie within our heart.

《生命在这一刻》Life at this moment
2013/12/03

我的生命
曾否有一刻
为你而活?
让我歌唱吧
这一刻
我为你而活!

我的生命
曾否有一刻
为你而开心?
让我歌唱吧
这一刻
我为你而开心!

我的生命
曾否有一刻
为你而落泪?
让我歌唱吧
这一刻
我为你而落泪

我们的生命
曾否有一刻
相拥在一起
让我们歌唱吧
就记住这一刻
因为明天当星星道别了太阳
我可能将道别了你

Is my life
for one moment
is meant to live for you?
O let me sing a song
for this moment
I live for you

Is my life
for one moment
is meant to be happy for you?
O let me sing a song
for this moment
I am happy for you

Is my life
for one moment
to cry for you?
O let me sing a song
for this moment
I cry for you

Is our life
for one moment
is meant to embrace each other?
O let us sing a song
to remember this moment
because tomorrow when the stars say farewell to the sun
I may be saying farewell to you

献给在我生命中一起走过的人
dedicated to all people who have walked with me in my life

//We think we do not have to live for others, but think again, so many have lived for us, at some moments in our lives.
//我们以为自己不为谁而活,想一想,我们生命里的许多人,也都曾在我们生命的某个阶段,不经意的为我们而活。

// The meaning of the last verse is about in darkness we light up hopes for each other, and the Sun signifies the end of the darkness, and thus the beginning of our new lives.

//There were two main ‘enzymes’ that led me to writing of these verses, my recent conversation with my secondary school friend Shirley about her struggling in the growing of her heart and soul (and mine too), and a canon pixma advertisement that led me to discover a beautiful song ‘Your Firefly’ by Ben Cocks. I completed these verses while listening to this song, because I wanted to write something beautiful like this song too.

有人说
财富是幸福
也有人说
幸福是财富
我问幸福
我是妳的什么?
幸福回答说
我梦里的一片云

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

A wish of the world
2013/10/31

《世界的期待》A wish of the world

你用细小的身躯
抵挡着命运的暴风
像小草等待着雨露
小花等待着阳光
而你等待着爱
可是亲爱的,你坚持的微笑
却让世界
也等待着你的幸福

Your vulnerable little body
standing against the ferocious storm of fate
like the little grass waiting for the rain and dewdrops
the flower waiting for the sun
and you are waiting for the love
but my dear, for the smile that you have never given up
even the World
is waiting for your happiness

《期盼》An expectation

《期盼》An expectation

My thought
has been away for a while
I do not know
where is she now
through the wooden window
I stare at the path leading to home
shadows of the trees
have stretched out to cuddle each other
the tender breeze touches my chins
comforting me by bringing the smell of dust
from a foreign land
I am wondering about
places that my thought has travelled
would she buy me a souvenir
for every place she has visited
and would she tell me the little stories
for every special moment she has encountered
when the first star
begins to twinkle in the sky
my heart is again filled with hope
for the little surprise
of life

我的思想
已离开了我好一阵子
我不知道
她走到了哪里了
凝望着木窗外
那回家的路上
路边的树已拉长着的树影
拥抱着彼此
微风吹拂在了我的双颊上
挟带着一种安慰
来自那远方的尘土的味道
我在想
我的思考她
走过了什么地方
她会不会在每一个地方
都给我买一些特别的手信
她回来后
会不会给我讲一些
她的旅程里一些有趣的小故事
当天边的一颗星星
已开始闪烁了
我又满怀期盼
这生命里的
又一个惊喜

《看不见的》Out of Sight
2013/06/04

我会微笑的
纵使盛开的花儿早已凋谢
我会追逐的
纵使美丽的蝴蝶早已不见了踪影
我会歌唱的
纵使太阳在深冬里早已失去了她原来的魅力
但我还是会跳着舞的
只为我那藏在心里的你看不见的爱

I will smile
even if the bloom has long withered
I will chase
even if the beautiful butterfly has long disappeared
I will sing
even if the sun has long lost her charm to the deep winter cold
but I will still dance
just for the love in my heart that you cannot see
