Landscape Over Zero Poem

Landscape Over Zero Poem

it’s hawk teaching song to swim
it’s song tracing back to the first wind
we trade scraps of joy
enter family from different directions
it’s a father confirming darkness
it’s darkness leading to that lightning of the classics
a door of weeping slams shut
echoes chasing its cry
it’s a pen blossoming in lost hope,
it’s a blossom resisting the inevitable route,
it’s love’s gleam waking to
light up landscape over zero

Bei Dao
