The Key of Heaven
If your soul wakes up and see golden heaven
At this moment, the fragrant honey makes you suddenly realize “Emptiness in Non-emptiness& Being in Non-being”
Even in black forest of the hell, you still hold the key of heaven
And the lightning of your mantras makes the python spit out those gems of time,
and those golden books of jade version from the gods in prehistoric.
Cherish: The Memory of the Heaven
Today I would like to thank the world that looks like the hell.
It makes the fire that cherish the memory of the Heaven burning inside me;
it reminds me of the precious fruit of the sweet golden tree.
Those palaces and towers swirling music from outer space,
those giants whose bodies are limpid and happy,
those oceans are blue cocktails,
those rivers are the nectar of the soul;
However those mountains float in the sky like clouds, layer upon layer.
None of stone has no transparent smile.
The wind pass through the body and sings mysterious words.
None of flowers will wither,
as if old sun is both eternal and young.
Don't Forget The Other You
Don't forget the other you,
those numerous you who either in the body or outer space,
those sweet smiles and the diamond flowers that never withers,
make boundless years on earth turn into a snippet of bird song.
Yes, that's crows of Phoenix from heaven.
Those sweet lightnings hit you,
let you suddenly wake up and see Gold Heaven is with you.
And your body is golden body of giants,
make all time to become sweet.
