from Spring Songs (5)

from Spring Songs (5)

5.

As the space between branches fills in
The incomplete sky gets more interesting:

The less I see the more it takes shape.
The more I see in the mirror the less

I recognize at this age:  a sign I’m not looking at
the right space or what fills it in

    Very nicely crafted, Jeff! (And don’t call me “Sir”! Don’t reply “Yes Sir, Sir!” either! And don’t take any of this seriously.)

    My translation:
    當枝頭之間的空隙填滿之時
    半空的天露出有趣味的景象

    天空愈小
    景物愈多

    像我鏡中
    所見的愈大
    能相認的愈少

    看來這把年紀
    落眼之處不在
    放眼望去之間
