Every Giant Looks Like Another Me
There is a colossal ship in my golden state from outer spce,
sometimes it visit me in dreams,
take me to the interstellar city of giants.
That’s where tomorrow’s new hom of minee–
the streets are covered with multicoloured gems,
the words of giants sounds like the music;
the gigantic buildings are the works of the Gods,
let you forget yesterday’s self in an instant.
The whole giant city is your own garden,
and every giant looks like another me.
The Paradises Outside Time
The heavenly flower from paradise on my palm
make the wine of time twinkle with a smile of dawn.
When the ancient in your bones play Guqin leisurely,
you will see the prehistoric self, who ride like the wind–
the mountains will be transparent and greet you ,
the rivers will be mellow, as if surrouned with the jade belts.
There are a great many golden palaces on the clouds,
that’s where your paradises outside time.
The Heaven of Diamond
Even if you are in the volleys of gunfire
you can also see the Buddha.
Because emptiness is everywhere
and the Buddha’s smile blossomon in your face.
When the emptiness in you body wake up for a moment,
the death will go up in smoke
the word will swing like a leaf.
Your body will become huge like the mountains of gold,
transparent and sweet like the heaven of diamond
The Hymn of The Sweet Soul
Drape the night over my shoulders like a cloak of the world,
summon the birds of the stars from outer space and fly near my city garden.
Sing a song of the giants from giant city of platinum,
awoke the drowsy city of the world with a start.
Oh, the lightnings are in full bloom in the vault of heaven-
the hymns of the sweet soul.
Your bones became transparent suddenly,
its light was flickering all over the body like the wings,
in a flash, the body became huge, higher than the large building down the street.
哦 闪电在天穹盛开 那甜蜜灵魂的圣歌
Four Poems, wrote by Chinese Poet Yuan Hongri, translated by Yuanbing Zhang
