In Galaxy And Nebulae - Poem by DePen Chang

In galaxy and nebulae
Mirrors the deep and lustrous
Kind of planet
Reflecting its alike twins
Already existing for trillion generations
The trillion light years beyond the universe and outer space

In galaxy and nebulae
Matters not a daytime or a night
The planets distributed the gravity without right or wrong
Flying stones, dusts and rocks drifting without gain or loss
Nebula alternating its light and dark in deep outburst
The instant birth and death of meteor’s collision

In galaxy and nebulae
Every moment is like this life
Setting forth the human in earth
The future is an unpredictable journey
Subsisting in a spacecraft with constant temperature
The heading direction beyond cold and hot

In galaxy and nebulae
Sperm and ovum combining the continuation of embryo
Youth withered in flight
Life a newborn in flight
Soaring further to a deep and gloomy milky way
The difference of love and hate gradually lost its remembrance

In galaxy and nebulae
The countless stars flashing high in universe
Dodging a farewell, separation is beyond the countless light years
Suddenly find one like the twin of earth
A new birth or a casting shadow?
The contradiction of lonesomeness and intimacy entangled in an encounter

    I was impressed by this poem written by the poet, Depen, Chang, TePen, after reading of this poem, I can feel its pulse is marching on. Chang is a great poet in the era of Taiwanese modern poetry, his dialetic mode and thoughtfulness in depicting life, nation, love and race, his skill and virtuosity are well considered.
