#Prompt2: Write a ghazal.


– Two Countries Without A Post Office –
(for Agha Shahid Ali)

Emerald Isle, where
love is black and mailed with hate
in a white letter.

蓝天中白羽
随风起落,代鸽传
失散的思念

(In the blue sky, a white feather
rises and falls with the wind, sending
lost longings, on behalf of the dove)


-至自己-

颈上韁绳松弛的一刻
马儿应否往自由奔着?

失马一刻又岂知祸福?
我难以平息心中忐忑。

说来路方长无须弃舍
心满疑虑又如何鞭策?

似山穷水尽何以寻村?
柳暗之处可真藏花色?

燕子总向往夏日翱翔
我可否也往自由奔着?
