佇東海岸 At East Coast
At East Coast
/ Tiong-siong Oo
There is one kind of life we have been seeking throughout our days.
Several capes were passed through, at East Coast.
Our car climbed over a hill,
And there was another broad cape right behind that.
Dulan Mountain was on the left, and Pacific Ocean was on the right.
There ought to be the hometown of clouds, on the top of the mountain.
The trees and the grass were still green, while the children awoke,
With their laughter slashing open the silence,
And the white clouds transforming itself, on the limpid sky.
Which cape is the most beautiful cape?
And which cloud is the most beautiful cloud?
There is one kind of love we have been seeking throughout our days,
As well as life has been transforming itself
Step by step.
Is the best day?
“The world would become more beautiful, because of you.”
I put in a secret rose seed at the deathless garden
In my heart,
Awaiting it budding everywhere
In both this cape and that cape, as well as the next cape,
And unto the uttermost part of the earth.
