Poetry Reading

With a little imagination..

On a skiff I meet an honoured guest,
Slowly, slowly, it comes gliding across the lake


Facing at the railing, we drink a cup of wine,
On all sides, lotus flowers are in bloom
A bell  Myna rang shrieked somewhere deep among the hill valley.
A spring river sounded choked, running down steep rocks,
The green pines monstera chilled blinked at the
sunlight's coloured rays  droplets
Come dusk, at the bend of a deserted pool,

Through meditation I controlled passion's dragon
Wang Wei~

Love that last picture. So you didn't write this, Weng Wei did? It reminds me of your writing.

Very interesting last photo. Took me awhile to figure out it was a fish ;-) I think the poem is yours but the last caption (re: fish and rippled water) is Weng Wei's...right?

Thanks to you both..actually, the only thing I wrote is what I replaced with just the crossed out words so it would sort of fit?

Regina said...

Great words my friend. And Those duckies are so cute. The last one is really fantastic!
Enjoy your weekend.

Ps. Beautiful Blog template. I like the classic look especially the design on the side.

You transformed an ancient oriental poem into the one that reflected what was happening in your place.

There is no conflict between east and west.

Fun way to re-work the writing to make it "fit." Poetry is a universal language (with a little editing--hehe). You've adapted the beautiful words to your wet day at the pool on the islands. The photos looks so rainy and the ducks look so happy.

The header photo of the white surf next to the dog's soft fur and the neutral dark colors of the rocks is just perfect.

That is a great idea that you had to make the poetry "fit". I'm gonna have to try it sometime ;-)

Lovely reflections Regina. I like how you included crossed out thoughts in your writing. It gives me the feel of a private journal. Nicely done!
