The cloud passed through the window pane on mother’s day

Before dinner, I saw the cloud passing through the window pane.

I urged mum to come over. She beheld,

with a sigh she returned back to her seat.

Only a few matters could touch mum’s heart, thought I.

Or, as the poet said: This time this heart should be unmoved.

I know not.

The riddle of life and death perplexes me.

/// 窗外飄過母親節的一片雲海///

晚飯前, 窗外飄過這片雲霞 我馬上拉媽媽到窗前.

她看了幾眼, 呀了一聲, 就返回座位.




可是, 我想: 人活到了某個時間終於會對世事見怪不怪吧.

也可能就是所謂: 見山不是山, 見水不是水.

如此生老病死, 千古以來令人費盡思量.

不知可有多少人想通! 但我知道我不會在其中!

我只想起: 草不謝榮於春風, 木不怨落於秋霜.


About NgTom

Three fundamental constituents support my life; they are literature, philosophy and photography. And I am rather glad that I don't really need them to sustain my living. But, it only implies my incompetent.
