春日落——

老人手中举着

红纸风车

spring sunset—
the red pinwheel in an
old man’s hand

喀布尔黎明——

花盆里开着一朵

黄雏菊

Kabul dawn—
in the flower pot,
a yellow daisy

待售房——

梨花盛开

越围墙

house for sale—
pear blossoms over
the fence

 

春晓——

蜘蛛丝

忽现忽隐

spring dawn—
the spider strand's glow
sporadic

春天奏鸣曲——

还是昨天那只

红雀?

spring sonata—
the same cardinal
from yesterday?
