(Chinese: oringal - English: translated)
Shooting up from the darkness
Look! This one is so brilliant;
he is Lee Pai.
Bang! This one is specially loud and bright.
The sparkles of fireworks to the dark night is just as the lives of human beings to the universe, beginning in the beginning-nowhere, and ending in the ending-nowhere. So short they are; so small they are! Thus having given a sigh every time after watching a firework display, I went enjoying my life. ( First published, Hong Kong Literature Monthly )
Written in the second night of a Luna New Year in the early nineties
