心动

I added the audio of this piece because it rhythms.


素颜的女生最可爱
微卷着半脸的刘海
韵香随着微风扑来
她不觉察我在发呆
花树下心动的男孩

English translation by meaning:

The plain face girl is the cutest
Her wavy bang covers half of her face
The breeze sends her sweet scent straight to me
She doesn’t notice that I am in a trance
A boy who is falling in love standing underneath a blossom tree

月相连

The Chinese mid-autumn festival traditionaly is a reunion time for family and love ones. I thought to write a love poem to celebrate. I hope google translator does this poem justice 🙃.


你的微笑是我院里的桃花
你的寂寞是我窗外的梧桐
你的挂念是留声机的情歌
你流的泪成了我天空的雨
此时是中秋佳节明月当空
让我的皓月照亮你的阴云

Centrifugation

Denise’s Six Sentence Story word prompt – Coffee


We used to think of our future as retirees.
You would be content to tie our boat to the pier at sunset, with or without fish for dinner, while I would dream that you played the harmonica in nostalgic tunes by the sea.

We wanted simple things until we didn’t want them anymore, unintentionally.
There had been this period of vacant time, spinning too fast and too wild.
We lost hold of each other, and we lost our substance as one.

I often imagine, the day I learn to forget the past, and you learn to play the harmonica, we will share coffees together like two perfect strangers who fall in love all over again.

自由鱼 He Set Her Free


他说
天上的星星不亮了
因为你带走了光环
他还说
水里的鱼儿自由了
因为你剪断了情丝
可是
我不是很相信他
因为
他每天都漏网捕鱼
他每晚都抬头望星


He says
The stars in the sky are not shining
Because you took away the halo
He also says
The fish in the water are free
Because you cut the love thread
But
I don’t quite believe him
Because
He fishes with a broken net by day
He looks up at the stary sky by night
