Night
Light boat
Set the storm

Backing to home
To the moon
Every tranquil dream

Night

Icy breeze
Bring the snow

Wishing in frost
See thy again
Every coming spring

Life is too short.

But spring will come eventually, and I will meet you when the flowers bloom again.

There is a plum tree in my backyard. At the end of February every year, the buds will be covered with bare branches, and gradually a light pink plum blossom will appear, with a touch of sweet fragrance. At the beginning of April, the plum blossoms fade, and the backyard will be filled with petals.

 

From birth to decay, I witness the life of flowers every single year.

 

During the spring break of 2018, my goldfish died. I buried him under a tree and covered its small grave with withered flowers.

Sinking to the digital
You come, driving the rime

New moon every night

Dreaming of the mortal
I realize, fleeting the time

Same flower every life
