Đặng Văn Hùng | A Dream (6)

I buried a dream
at the foot of a tree
at the very end of the garden
where no one ever pass by
nothing but surrounding weeds

Đặng Văn Hùng | somewhere very quiet and peaceful (5)

not turning into a flower
as in the poet’s imagination
not turning into incantations
for those who preach peace
you return to the darkness

Đặng Văn Hùng | Hell (4)

humanity hovering like moths to a fire
heading for the gate of hell
listening to the voice of innocent babes
in glorious praise of esteemed leaders
their political form rolling
across the undefined footpaths

Đặng Văn Hùng | love, allow all flowers (2)

to then
upon the blue sky see
your heart
the forever deep
the sea?
they too bury
their own dreams

I know – Anh biết (1)

by Đặng Văn Hùng, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm
_____
I know
there
the casting shadows in your eyes

anh biết
chỉ còn nơi ấy
bóng râm trong mắt em
