An Illusion in The Bright Mirror of Eternity – a poem by Hongri Yuan

An Illusion in The Bright Mirror of Eternity

Translated by Yuanbing Zhang

Every day is an illusion in the bright mirror of eternity.
You see yourself from a teenager to an old man with gray hair,
as if you are a role in a play.
And the peace of mind makes you smell the fragrance of flowers from the Heavens.
You recall yourself in outer space with a smile–
that golden giant and fragrant light;
the huge number of palaces look lofty, resplendent and majestic,
they rise and fall, like a sea of gold.
Billions of years are like the drops of nectar
crystal clear, sprinkle the music of intoxicated soul.



那黄金的巨人 芳香的光芒
晶莹剔透 洒下醉了灵魂的乐曲
