I Think of the Solitude of the Sea

Jinming Huang
Translated from Chinese by Shilin Ou

I go deep into the night, holding flowers
and a firebrand. Darkness is moving.
This is a book of sand, with pages tainted by black ink.
Written language shall be more eternal, yet dimmer
than starlight. A Grain of Sand leaves the desert.
Two ants are separated by the ocean.
Under the open roof, a chair recalls the distant forest,
the wind and rain. A drop of water develops its loneliness,
just on the thought of the sea.
