Ahuriri, Napier . February 2013

Adult Pi Patel: I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.

Laugh . Dream . Love | quaintmelody.com

Another decade gone, just like that.
Laughter shared, dreams realised, love treasured.
Isn’t that what it supposed to be? Days of our lives.

Here’s to many more cherished moments!

Season of whole

Mid-autumn moon . Spring 2009 . by cc
Happy Mid-autumn Festival! 千古明月 慶中秋

It is still the same, the bright round sphere,
shining behind veils of thin clouds.
I gazed upon the illuminating moon, looking for that wonderland
In that faraway land where mystical tales live long,
Where dreams are realised and smiles beam bright.

千古明月依舊
中外人事已非

It’s been cloudy with occasion showers throughout the day, I thought I wouldn’t be able to see the moon tonight. Just a little after midnight I gazed upon the sky, and there it is, rays shining through my window sills. The photo is taken just after midnight. The positioning of the moon seemed to be somewhat different from this time last year. It’s funny how the moon almost always brings out feelings of melancholy and notalsgia for me. Must be the occasion. It’s the season of longing and love, it’s the season of whole.
Now tell me, did you see the moon tonight and how did it make you feel?

Smile blossomed on your face, like a river flowing deep into my heart.
We laughed, cried, simply being silly together.
This winter . two souls . one heart
We’re finally home.

妳看到花,笑了。然後,我也跟著笑。 一切盡在不言中。

Time

It is funny, how quickly you move
Flowing through those happy moments in the blink of the eye
It is merciless how slowly you drag on
Through the dark and hollow hours

I am lost
In the waft that is time…

It is moments like this I shall persevere
Resting like a bear in hibernation
Long as I could I wait
For the idyllic days won’t be far
Longing for the psychedelic lights
Shinning upon me once again

我拼命想抓住那 時間的沙流
卻怎麼只有 空洞的風
陪我漫步欄柵

Morning delight

Parcel from afar . Autumn 2009

It was the perfect way to start the day. I woke up to a knock on my front door.
A box of delights was sent from afar, by an angel who’s close to my heart.
It is little delight like this that makes life beautiful.

What was the delight that made your day?

Touched by an angel

Touch of an Angel . by cc . Summer 2009
Girl . Lake Wanaka . Summer 2009 click photo to enlarge.

I was touched by an angel
In a sunny afternoon

The innocence in her eyes
It touches my heart
So pure, so full of hope.

I wish to grasp the moment
Hold it close to my heart
Still, it starts to diminish, as time goes by

Though, I’ll never forget that beautiful encounter
The sunny rays from an angel

希冀

在妳眼中閃爍的希冀
有一種純真的感動

我想把它緊緊地抓住
放進口袋裡

但那些真摯的年歲
終究還是  漸行漸遠
