Epiphyllum 曇花

July 20           Thursday           Sun
七月廿日         星期四               晴


Epiphyllum flowers bloom flashily when the bright moon is up above at night
How graceful
How transparent they are
Eyes whirling around the leaves
Intoxicated
曇花一現    在明月當空的夜晚
裊裊婷婷
剔透潔瑩
溜轉   在綠葉間的眼睛
陶醉了


Early in the morning
I pick the faded petals
Make a cup of lily bulbs epiphyllum soup
Catch the beauty of meteoric of epiphyllum
清晨
摘下綿軟無力的花瓣
煮一碗百合曇花羹
捕捉曇花  剎那之美


The life of epiphyllum
Becomes much splendid after it fades away
曇花的生命
凋謝後  更精彩

In a flash is as always
一瞬即永恆
