Childhood

Childhood’s afternoon was endless
I walked alone along the road
Encountered few friends on the way
The sun passed through the water
Illuminated the stone fish that swam at the bottom of the pool
The earthworms under the bricks revealed their heads
Velvety branches scratched my arms
Salvia splendens was everywhere
I sucked nectar from it alone
Inside of a clump of bamboo was hidden
The treasure of dreams
That bamboo shoot has arcane texture
How should I collect?
Toward those paths

 

 Your name

 You went away
I sat on the couch to drink water
The whisper went far away
The look faded out
The boiling scene gradually cooled
Years later
Only a name was left
Other people and things will cover my memory
What can be expected is that
When I think of you
I will meditate your name
Repeatedly
