One Man's Maple Moon: Solitary Kite Tanka by Pravat Kumar Padhy

English Original

a solitary kite
in the twilight sky
dusk deepens
unfolding the heaviness
of her loneliness

A Hundred Gourds, 4:2, March 2015

孤獨的風箏
在黃昏的天空中飛翔
暮色漸漸加深
展現出她的孤獨
之沉重

Chinese Translation (Simplified)


孤独的风筝
在黄昏的天空中飞翔
暮色渐渐加深
展现出她的孤独
之沉重

1 comment:

  1. Pravat's tanka builds, line by line, to an emotionally powerful ending that reveals the theme of loneliness, and there is an implicit simile effectively established between the two parts of the tanka.
