生命之水

我帶著夢想從高山而來
伴著喜悅的歌聲在山谷裏唱響
一路奔騰
變化著不同的模樣
時而溫柔如月光
陪伴著你進入夢鄉
時而洶湧如雄獅傾瀉而下
時而敞開胸懷如涓涓細流
奔入大海一樣

WATER OF LIFE

From the mountains I have come, chasing after my dream;
My singing echoing through the gullies,
my joy dashes down the valley.
Varying my shapes and appearances:
Gentle as the moonlight,
Accompanying you into your sleep.
And then roaring like a fierce lion, pouring all the way down.
And then opening up my chest, slowly rippling forth,
returning to the embrace of the ocean.

Minjie Xiao  36, Seattle
