earth shadow, Poetry

Hongri Yuan

Each Rock is A Potala Palace

The sunshine is mellow wine
and there are golden palaces inside the sun.
Where a giant is its master,
he told me that I was his shadow on the earth.

I will still be much greater, like a mountain,
each rock is a Potala Palace.
And the epics I chanted came from billions of years ago,
there are huge number sweet homes beyond the Milky way.



他告诉我  我是他在人间的影子

我还会更加巨大 像一座山
而我吟唱的史诗 来自亿万年前
在银河系之外 有巨多甜蜜的家园
