An Ardent Admirer

It will make me happier to see you than read your poems. However it will give me more joy to watch you writing poems than see you.

Do I keep dreaming to see you or settle for the reality that you are happily doing what you love?

Writer’s notes:
This is an interpretation of Jun’s poem written in Chinese.

见诗的快乐不如见你的快乐。
见你的快乐不如见你写诗的快乐。
哪一种快乐去梦里?
哪一种快乐到现实?

Book Characters

The walk between prologue
and epilogue
lasts a span of time
only you can decide

We live
We cry
We die
The emotions tower in you
only last a rain showers

No matter how you see us
your opinion only lasts
the length of a pen
in the writer’s hand

The remanence of us
like ghosts live in
the echo of your resounding life
in drips, drops and shreds

Every now and then
You raise a glass
toast to our unceasing spirits
residing in the depth
of your heart
