Snow Revelation
by Yuan Changming

Every winter we are reminded
All gaps and cracks can be filled up
All dirtiness and ugliness can be buried deep, and
All viewing difference can be harmonized into one single color

Muted in white, as the land unfolds itself to show us how
To make a new start in spring

by Yuan Changming

Standing straight against the frozen sky
Your skeletons are the exquisite calligraphy
Of the season

Your name is writ

Not in water
But with wind
