Dream


Many people, if not all, have at least a couple of dreams like the two bubbles. Some dreams can be realized but some cannot.

The bubbles are the symbol of individual's dreams. The poet intended to hang onto the his dreams, which were dashed against the hard wall of reality. The bubbles were broken up. This was the sad dream of Gu Cheng, the poet.

When I was young, I failed to understand The Story of the Stone, aka, "The Dream of Red Mansion". Until recently, I think I finally understand what the "dream" implies, when it comes to philosophies of Taoism and Buddhism. There's a big bubble of love, infatuation, fame, money, family, and other all kinds of desires. but few people can have the enlightenment before they experience and go through the life on their own. Life is a dream.

Bubbles
Gu Cheng
Two tiny, free bubbles
Rise from the depths of a sea of dreams…

A vague haze, a slivery mist
Lifts in a soft breeze.

Like a little child
I cling to you, as you fade away.

Vainly trying to drag a bubble
Back to the land of reality.
