NEW MUSIC OF SILENCE FOR LIVERS

 

Music is sometimes smoking darkness

Birds are in the sky-traffic whispering truths of longings in clouds

Liu Xiaobo has been a song of dataficated dreams for humanity and peace

Livers in the 21st century  are sure to be fit for olympic marathon

Lotus flowers beside the ponds under the bridge

Grasp present moment of endurance

Your feet are on the hopes of newly-born silence

Feel  the breeze of the freezed  unbirthdays

In house of freedom

People are marching for hands of wisdom

Hospital bed, a mature glass, crying windows and the dreams of a young intellectual

Dare to bridge realities across borders

Butterflies.Butterflies.Butterflies.

Words musical without background music

Flowers grapsed by clouds

Phonemes musical without background music

New Music Of Silence is born and gone with the gong, bell and tea-leaves on the skins.
