At the edge of heaven, I inhabit my absence

Night

A sliver of moon lulls through clear night.
Half abandoned to sleep, lampwicks char.

Deer wander, uneasy among howling peaks,
and forests of falling leaves startle cicadas.

I remember mince treats east of the river,
think of our boat adrift in falling snow . . .

Tribal songs rise, rifling the stars. Here,
at the edge of heaven, I inhabit my absence.

--Tu Fu, Poet of Tang dynasty -Translated from the Chinese by David Hinton

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
