A few days ago when I was still in Las Vegas for vacation, I got an email from CBC Radio to ask me to write a poem about silence. I wrote Life Jars. Today CBC Radio aired it and you can listen to it here:

Life Jars
When I was a child,
I was told that silence is like light
having colors and faces.

Walking through the country in the dark,
I used to fill a glass jar with fireflies.
It became my blue starry compass.
When I inhaled the silence,
I could hear quiet voices from living creatures,
each making music of itsown life.

Now grown up,
every day’s busy journeyin this hectic city,
I thought our life jars must be full of mundane trifles and noises;
Yet wandering into ravines in this urban landscape,
I can find the silence, silence and silence-
Where it opens a door like sunrays breaking through.
Riding along thelakeshore,
I see the sunset’s quiet reflection on the lake,
the CN Tower topping its splendor.

Like many commuters, I inhale the silence.

中文翻译有点生硬, 欢迎批评和建议。

生命瓶罐
当我还是一个孩子,
有人告诉我就像光亮
有着颜色和面孔。

在黑暗中穿行乡村的时候
我习惯了用萤火虫装满一个玻璃瓶。
它成为我蓝色的星星指南针。
当我吸进宁静,
我能听到轻微的声音来自众生,
每一个都在为一份生命歌唱。
成长以后,
穿行在这繁忙的城市之旅,
我想我们的生活罐子里一定充满着琐事和噪声;
然而,漫步于这个城市的山谷中,
  我能感觉到      
宁静
这种静默就像阳光一样
打开着一扇门。

沿湖岸行驶,
我看到在湖面上夕阳安静的投影
国家电视塔默默地增添它的辉煌。
和很多乘客一样,我深吸这份宁静。
