《盛夏荷花》

#2172 发表於 2015-07-04 00:12
这个初夏真的太热了!据说今年六月平均气温29.7度、热夜多达13日,是1884年以来最高纪录。今天中午,我一如既往,到葡韵观赏盛夏的荷花,谁知只逗留了一小时,拍了不到二十张照,全身上下皆由内至外被汗水所湿透。

回到家里,急不及待来一个清凉的淋浴,泡一壶清茶,欣赏刚才所拍的照片。盛夏的荷花,婀娜多姿,怪不得曹植在《洛神赋》 以“华容婀娜令我忘餐” 来形容荷花之神西施。

而我除了天气炎热外,也因工作烦多而不思饮食。细味一口清茶之际,却想起一首由诺贝尔文学奖得主泰戈尔(Tagore)所写的一首诗歌《荷花》。作者以夏天的采荷活动推引出自己的经历和情感。在优雅的字句中,表达出诗人对完美生命的追求和感恩。

我揣摩着诗中的情意,再比较自己的经历,不奇然微笑起来。


Lotus - Tagore

On the day when the lotus bloomed, alas, my mind was straying, and I knew it not.
My basket was empty and the flower remained unheeded.
Only now and again a sadness fell upon me, and I started up from my dream and felt a sweet trace of a strange fragrance in the south wind.
That vague sweetness made my heart ache with longing and it seemed to me that is was the eager breath of the summer seeking for its completion.
I knew not then that it was so near, that it was mine, and that this perfect sweetness had blossomed in the depth of my own heart.

《荷花》-竹本郎译

唉!不知何故,那日荷花绽放,我却感觉一片迷茫。
㩗着空的篮子,我竟把花儿遗忘。
此刻,忧愁接踵而至;我在梦里,陶醉於南风送来奇異的芬芳。
朦胧的甜蜜,却令我良久地感到心伤;
为求完满的结局,我喝望呼吸到夏日的气息。
可不知道,它,原来如此接近,且已为我所有,完美的甜密,已盛放於我的心房。
