Puzi

A few days ago the rain came down
I could hear the raindrops from far to near
On top of the balcony
I opened my window and listened
And I remembered a young dream of mine
I wanted to build a house along the Puzi River
From where I could see the raindrops and hear my parents’ chatter
A night like that would be serene and calming

感謝老師 (16)

日前夜裏來了一陣雨
清楚的聽見雨由遠趨近
敲落在陽台的遮雨棚
我打開窗戶聆聽
想起了年少的一個夢想
我要沿朴子溪蓋一棟可以遠眺的樓房
像這樣下雨的時候 屋外是窗簷的滴雨 屋裡是爸媽的聊天聲
這樣的夜何其安詳

Every time when I go on a business travel to Taiwan
I feel like time passes so quickly
Whenever the train stops in Taibao Station
Puzi is just around the corner, and I would like to go back

Whenever there is an empty seat, I would go by the window facing West
Sometime gently swiping the window
Sometime looking from the seat
I think about “the horses rely on the winds of the North, the birds nest in the branches of the South”

感謝老師 (10)

每一次出差到台南
經過太保站的時候
總是覺得停站的時間格外的短促
朴子就近在咫尺 很想回去看一下

一有空位就坐到向西靠窗的位置
有時貼撫著窗戶
有時仰身眺望
常念及“胡馬依北風 越鳥巢南枝”

From the alley of your house
Take a left turn, the Puzi River is nearby
I know the four seasons by heart
The smell of China Tree, the chirp of cicada; reeds, fried branches and bird voices…
The sound of Light-vented Bulbuls remind me of the four seasons

A long embankment has been built there
The scenery stays the same

Do you go for a walk by the embankment?
The long embankment in my dream

感謝老師 (1)

從您家的巷子出來
左轉 不遠處就是朴子溪
我熟悉那裡的四季
有苦苓的花香 熱烈的蟬鳴 蘆花蔓草 枯枝鳥啼…….
白頭翁的叫聲常使我聯想起它

現在那裡築起了一條長長的堤
堤外的風景依舊

您是否常常去走那條長長的堤
長長的堤在夢裏

Because of your guidance, I entered high school, that was a fulfilling time

Every Sunday I rode to Dongshi to help mother with farming, and studied from Monday to Saturday

The Sanheyuan was noisy in the morning, but quiet at night, especially during midnight. I could hear bugs outside and the sound of geckos. I turned pages and could hear the sound of a pen touching papers. The environment was calming. Although it was dark outside, but my mind was bright. I believed that I would see light if I continued my path.

Always have ambitious dreams.

感謝老師 (19)

由於您的引領,我上了高中,那是一段充實的歲月.

每週日我騎單車到東石幫我媽種田,週一到週六認真念書.

三合院白天吵雜,入夜就逐漸靜下來,尤其深夜,窗外是蟲鳴,屋裡偶而幾聲壁虎的叫聲.我輕翻書頁,筆尖觸紙的聲音也清晰入耳.那氛圍讓人感到踏實.
雖然窗外一片漆黑, 但我心裡是明亮的,堅信按照這樣走下去前方必定會有曙光. 常懷前途遠大的夢想.

June is when a breeze
Comes with a heavy dose of nostalgia

June is when the phoenix flowers bloom
And the petals fall all over

June is when the song of farewell begins
And we say goodbye

June is when we are not ready to say goodbye
But we need to

六月的心情

六月是微微的風
吹著濃濃的愁緒

六月是鳳凰花開
花片落滿一地

六月是驪歌唱起
離情依依

六月是 — — 捨不得老師
我們要離開妳

Her resentment is like a record
In the living room where it is easy to reach
Whenever her friends visit, the record would play again and again
With a song called weariness, which she does not know

惡婆婆 ( 3 )

她的積怨像灌錄在一塊黑膠唱片
擺在客廳最容易拿到的位置
親友來訪她便拿來重複的播放
她不知道那曲調叫做厭倦

Before the run rises, she wakes up and washes clothes
She deliberately brushes clothes hard enough
So that others cannot sleep

Afterwards she makes breakfast
Making huge sounds with pots and bowls
As if trying to waking people up
She cooks with resentment
Adding hatred as ingredient
To eat or not to eat, that is the question

There is a big alarm clock set in the morning at 5:30
Not allowing anyone to enjoy their Sunday

惡婆婆 (1)

天還沒亮 她就起床洗衣服
故意用刷子刷得很響亮
讓人如睡針氈

之後 她做早餐
把鍋碗瓢盆碰很大聲
凌遲般的要人起床
一邊煮一邊咬牙切齒
飯菜裏加進了多少的怨恨
教人吃也不是不吃也不是

客廳一個大鬧鐘定在清晨五點半
禮拜天都不放過

She is ready to exercise as soon as the sun comes out;
she gently closes the door
Her friends complain about her daughter-in-law who sleeps in
She said to them
It is fine for her to sleep in because young people go to bed late
My daughter wakes up late too
Let’s be considerate

好婆婆

天剛亮她就整裝去運動 輕輕的開門關門
朋友們向她投訴她們的媳婦懶惰晚起
她告訴她們
年輕人晚睡 就讓她們多睡一會
我的女兒也很晚起
大家將心比心

I like stamps
Especially ones with postmarks
They must carry a sincere emotion
To imagine the feeling of the person who writes the letter
And the feeling of the person who receives it
I can see the silhouette of a postman

郵票

我喜歡郵票
尤其信件上蓋有郵戳的
想必它傳遞了一份真摯的情懷
揣想
寫信人的心情
讀信人的感動
我彷彿看見郵差的身影

Most of the time, life is ordinary
In something ordinary, we find happiness because nothing bad happens
Ordinariness brings peace and happiness.

生活

生活大部分時候 是平淡無奇的
但平淡無奇就是幸福 那表示沒有什麼事發生
也就是平安無事 平安就是幸福
