A Boulder on the Riverbed

   A Boulder on the Riverbed
               For Cheng Ying
A boulder is there on the riverbed, simplistic and plain
As sunrays fall down from the cliffs of clouds to scan it
It’s a matter of seconds, but even today it has been there
For more than half a day already; and it shows nothing
No expression of a still-water heart at the unchanging flow
Nor inner disturbance at the sun's fickle sports with clouds
The passer-by, if not going down there to touch it or kick it, will learn
To accept that its solitude is warm or cold solely for its own sake

A boulder on the riverbed is there, not for those drifting on the water
Nor for the vagabonds in search for a shelter on the earth
Whoever is intent on flowers and fruits won’t recognize the veins of stone
A boulder has a weight unknown to anyone, without gain or loss after birth
But everyone is free to attribute a growing awareness to it, as if it’s always had
The awareness that other boulders exist in sight at different distances

    河床上的大石头
            (致成婴)
河床上有一块大石头,简朴,素白
阳光的瀑布从云的悬崖上泻下,扫描它
只是几秒钟的事,可今天,它就一直在那儿
已经半天多了,没显露任何表情
没因为流水不变的沉着而心如止水
没因为太阳与云朵亵戏而内心焦灼
经过的人若不去触摸或用脚踢踢,就得学会
接受,它的孤独是冷是暖,都只属于它自己

河床上的石头在河床上,不是为了弄潮逐水的人
不是为了在大地上寻求栖身之所的流浪者
谁执着于开花与结果,就注定认不出石头的纹脉
石头自有重量,不为人知,从出生就未曾增减
人人都可随意给它注入一种意识,犹如一直生长在它内部
意识到其它石头的存在,在视野之内,不同的距离
