Hsiao Hsiao 蕭蕭

DESOLATION
悲涼*

Translated by Zona Yi-Ping TSOU 鄒怡平


Sitting in the wind
I gradually brew a feeling of
Desolation

The color of the mountains, the sound of water
Quietly retire
Together the wilderness and the wind
Disappear

I lower my eyes
Let my tears, amassing all the shouts
Fall, silent
