TAKING A WALK
(translated by N. SAOMAI)
Sunshine knocked, inviting me to windy streets
The green evening carried my paces elated
I took off the pin to let go streams of my hair
The space became a piece of spring sweet scented
Wild daisies I rambled through
Opened my heart mingled with flying clouds
In a sudden, all stopped, Heaven and Earth and I¾
a falling dream was touching my mind.
Caught, it turned out to be a grain of wind.
I opened my palm: it was now the emptiness.
How strange that something was stirring in me:
Blossomed in my heart lines and lines of poetry.
