PoemEdit

Believer (1993)

On the day
While closing my eyes in the mist of the sacred temple
I suddenly heard
The true world of your prayer

In that month
I turned around all the prayer wheels
Not for the purpose of purification
But for caressing your finger tips

In that year
I knocked my head for a long time on the mountain path
Not for the purpose of pilgrimage
But for pressing near the warmth of your body

During that life
I turned around mountains, rivers, and Buddhist towers
Not for seeking after a better future life
But for meeting you on the way[1]

Source language:
信徒 (1993)
那一天
闭目在经殿香雾中
蓦然听见
你颂经中的真言
那一月
我拨动所有的转经筒
不为超度
只为触摸你的指尖
那一年
磕长头匍匐在山路
不为觐见
只为贴着你的温暖
那一世
转山转水转佛塔啊
不为修来生
只为途中与你相见[1]

InspirationEdit
