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 I

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.
