     AT THE WATERFALL

Deep in the mountain
there are plenty of caves
where one can sit in solitude
and meditate

Yet I stand here full of joy
looking up at the waterfall
as enlightened thoughts
dart through the air
like thousands of silvery horses

 
    观瀑
       --黄石公园游记之二

深山中
多的是幽洞玄天
可以独坐
可以冥想

我却仰头站在这里
满怀喜悦
看万马奔腾的水壁
滔滔涌现
禅机

VIEWING THE JADE BITTER GOURD
-- AT THE PALACE MUSEUM IN TAIPEI

Despite their sweet aftertaste
my wife refuses to include bitter gourds
in her menu

Standing in front of the glass case
I watch my favorite delicacy
simmer in the slow flames of time
while the tip of my tongue
swims naked
in the saliva
of memory
 
 
       白玉苦瓜
         -- 看台北故宫博物院的玉雕
 
什么苦都吃得
善烹饪的妻
却总把苦瓜我的旧爱
排在菜单之外

只好透过诗页
透过空间阻隔的玻璃
让这用时间的文火
鲜美诱动舌尖
去裸泳
津津的记忆
