☀️🌏🌒 愛中有危，它也在 偉業流言紛紜中買醉者的眼裡， 使其心胸擴大，燒毀所有歸路的橋樑， 從此不允許過往的生命恢復。 我曾寄居於如此定義的慾望領域， 這男人在順從中喪生的地方， 因愛最瘋狂的要求，當奴隸的遭遇， 而後被一個可懼、遙遠而熟悉的旨意 授勳未知的英勇， 逆著譴責的支柱崛起。 且讓我在愛裡醉倒，而不是在安全中清醒！要么 在天堂的沼澤裡跋涉，也不在地獄的中庭大步邁進！ 如果死亡不能因愛得贖，那麼一個人將得益多少？ 我確已死，直至我死在愛裡！ 一個疲憊的人是否寧願歇息也不尋求真理？ 他不願接受深愛切責裡的刺痛、 去除遮蓋它光芒的勞碌嗎？ 死亡可能代替榮耀， 但那算什麼？告訴我愛在墳墓之後止息， 那你尚能存活。愛或不偏袒眾生， 但若憑一個善行，我們也要以其名義前進 來承受一切。而愛征服眾生，也甚至將 擄獲血流如注的塗炭幽靈， 排除所有艱難險阻，撤空無間獄海。 #現代詩 #原作 #九年成詩
“What does war do to death? It certainly does not make it more frequent; 100 percent of us die, and the percentage cannot be increased. It puts several deaths earlier, but I hardly suppose that is what we fear. Certainly when the moment comes, it will make little difference how many years we have behind us. Does it increase our chances of a painful death? I doubt it. As far as I can find out, what we call natural death is usually preceded by suffering, and a battlefield is one of the very few places where one has a reasonable prospect of dying with no pain at all. Does it decrease our chances of dying at peace with God? I cannot believe it. If active service does not persuade a man to prepare for death, what conceivable concatenation of circumstances would? Yet war does do something to death. It forces us to remember it. The only reason that cancer at sixty or paralysis at seventy-five do not bother us is that we forget them... All schemes of happiness centred in this world were always doomed to final frustration. In ordinary times only a wise man can realise it. Now the stupidest of us knows.” #armistice100 #11111918 #remembranceday #lestweforget #thegloriousdead
🏮☁️ 暮雲收盡溢清寒， 銀漢無聲轉玉盤。 此生此夜不長好， 明月明年何處看。
📜 This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Orion has fully risen and stood at the eastern horizon, and from that Inman made the time to be long past midnight... One of the things Inman marked as a comfort was that he could put a name to the brightest star in Orion. He had shared that fact with a Tennessee boy on the night after Fredericksburg... Inman had looked toward Orion and said the name he knew. The Tennessee boy had peered up at the star so indicated and said, How do you know its name is Rigel? —I read it in a book, Inman said. #orion #nightsky
