《櫻花婚禮》__ 陳瑞文 (71)

風吻紗飄手相牽
日傍雲依心赤誠
盟定三生花為證
白頭偕老我卿卿

《廣州三天》__ Don Chen (71)

匆匆廣州三天,成果豐碩。當今世界,舊友相聚,缺乏「此地一為別 孤蓬萬里征」之情懷。「督卒」(偷渡)時代的漫漫長夜,已成碧空萬里,那些悲傷故事,交給了敘利亞和非洲難民,他們往歐洲「督」去。
至於那「浮雲遊子意,落日故人情」更無意義。今天通訊發達,不必再到電信公司IDD打電話問候故人了。「天涯若比鄰」到是真的,一發微信幾個😊,全群友好知道你在問候。
科技世界,曰新月異。休提阿爺那代人不認識當今,就算歸西數月的人再翻生,也會感覺不相同。

《How Many Bards Gild the Lapses of Time》

How many bards gild the lapses of time!
A few of them have ever been the food
Of my delighted fancy,—I could brood
Over their beauties, earthly, or sublime: Continue reading

《四二六誌哀》 __ 陳瑞文(71)

《四二六誌哀》 __ 陳瑞文(71)

八九學運展哀歌
絕食死諫浩氣剛
定性動亂四二六
三代株連親屬慌
不敢撤離大廣場
未得平反懼上綱
終見坦克聞鎗發
一紙社論泛血光

【 一九八九年四月廿六日《人民日報》在頭版頭條刋登社論,題為《必須旗幟鮮明地反對動亂》,把學運活動定性為動亂。】

《Sky Lantern __ Entrance of Simonne Aletheia》__ Rose Ho

Today, let’s go fly Sky Lanterns … in Taiwan.

That process was thrilling and exciting.  So was the drama of yesterday.

My daughter gave birth to her second child yesterday morning….in the foyer of the hospital right by the lift before we could go to the delivery floor.   “Call Code Blue!”  “Call Code Pink!”  “Baby’s head is coming out.” “Can someone get the body out too?”  “Stay clear please”  “Stay clear”  “Blanket please”   “Blanket”…..  …….. ……. A big commotion at the hospital lobby. Continue reading

《The Human Seasons》 by John Keats__ 江紹倫中譯

The Human Seasons》 by John Keats
《人生季節》 (濟慈)

Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously Continue reading
