A Story by Rachelle
"

Quiet conversations

"
We picked
Pebbles
And found
Diamonds.


In original Mandarin version:

Zhushi

Cai huan shi
Fajue yu.

The English version is much better.
Finally I get to read some eastern poetry here in WritersCafe ! This is so deep I can't help but remain speechless, I can barely imagine the philosophical concept behind these words. By the way, turn the photo, I want to read it (even if I won't understand anything !!)

Thank you, Hafiz!
This is a short and beautiful poem. It's nice to read small poems with deeper/more meanings. Nicely penned! I love it! ^-^

You're welcome my dear
I like how this can be taken in different ways, literally, as in you discovered diamonds whilst dabbling in a nearby stream and picking up random pebbles, or figuratively, as in, you find beauty in what you are able to reach, not in what must be mined for exhaustingly.
