Equivocating Eye


That my equivocating eye
Loves only by my body’s hunger;
That I have forces, true to feel,
Or that the lovely world is real.
It is with hesitation
I weld the clasp of hand shake
Not to mention
my close, doubting kith and kin
I keep the distance
but let my heart flow free
Words I roll off my tongue
letting them find their place
As appropriate
As the situation demands
But you know me; I know myself
I try to heed not the beating heart
But crush it fragile
Under the presence of sensibilities
Yet truth like oil
On water surface floats free.....
Catching vibrant colours
Poesy finds its mark
Undaunted
That my equivocating eye
Loves only by my body’s hunger;
That I have forces, true to feel,
Or that the lovely world is real.

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
