Vietnamese
Help: Viewing Vietnamese

có một chiều thu
khu vườn
ngửa bàn tay
ngắm mãi vân tay

mây bay lang thang trong lòng bàn tay
đường ray
còi tàu hú
trong lòng bàn tay…

Pleiku, 1987

English Translation

an autumn evening
in a quiet garden
I hold my left hand face up
and stare at its palm

clouds fly in the hand
the train tracks run
the train howls
in the hand…

Pleiku, 1987
