ON THE CURREN T WATER

(translated by TINH VO)

 

 

 

It seems to be the foam

They were driven ashore

The waves didnít know anymore

The foam will be left on the land

 

It semms to be the side of the boat

Itís waiting the waves coming to say the love

And hearing the wind-song in the night

Some sound look like vague bye-bye?

 

It seems to be the leaves

They were parted from the branches by winds

And fell down somewhere on the ground

They didnít know what happen and how

 

Foam-waves-boatís side and leaves above

They will be changed by Natureís Law

The world of familiar becomes stranger

And the Sea will be solitude forever.
