Time, I’m reminded of its value again today.

The time you smile at the ridiculousness of my words.

The idea that love is tangible in an embrace.

Ah yes the embarrassment of a blunder, you took the time to blush…

*

The minutes to explain.

*

The waking hours between sleep writing an escape, or were they bitter realities steeped in nectar.

*

Ah time, thankyou for your time.

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.
