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
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.
32 CHOREOGRAPHIES;Thirty-two characteristics of body
32 choreographies are 32 cities on skins and inside skins.
The soul of the world is equality.
TWO HANDS ON TOUCHING IMAGINATIONS ON AND OFF.
A BIRD IS BORN WITH FREEDOM WITHOUT FEAR.
An ethical poetry is curved with contemporary wisdom.
If empty space was not born free ,the new poetry of the 21st century new world poetics never moves forward.
I see and feel the childhoodmemories of happy hours.
Now is now is now is now is now is now is NOW.NOWNESS is now.
Compose a song.Tomorrow.Tomorrow.Tomorrow,.
Hope.Sky.Face upwards.Eyes.Ponds.Ocean.Leaves.Forest.No hope.Only nowness.
Music is the fabrics of the dance on the road of the roads.Reflect.Reject.Relax.
A balance-poetics is freedom of equalibrium beyond mathematics and physics.
The most difficult poem is made of a bridge of simplicity-concepts-chains.
A chemical-biological-physiological move.
Dumb dreams breed poetry.
Dumb dreams .
Effects are puppets.
Emerging vibration pictures are dancing in garden.
Make an innovative tap-dance.
An iceberge in the body movements.
Make poetry in the eye-house where country roads are twisted and fisted.
Sail your mind as a boat.
Shoppers and vendors on jetty.
How many eyelid of wind-wing move in one swing of a hand?
How many foot-prints of world are there in a curving process of a sculpture?
Tell me ,please.
