Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | Change the way you think, change your drinking culture (205)

I was born 1971, Phu Nhuan, Saigon, Vietnam. My family and I were a part of the first exodus of boat people after the Vietnam war. In March 1981, we settled in Sydney, Australia. I graduated with a bachelor of Pharmacy at the University of Sydney. I have been translating Vietnamese literature for the past five years in my search to better understand my mother’s language and culture. My translations have been shared through blogging over the past year. I am still a registered pharmacist practicing in Western Sydney. I hope to continue translating, and continue to share Vietnamese art and literature, beyond borders on SONGNGUTAITRAM.

Lê Vĩnh Tài | TIBET – BÀI TRƯỜNG CA TÂY TẠNG

Lê Vĩnh Tài is a Vietnamese poet, a resident of the West Highlands. A retired medical doctor, currently an acclaimed businessman in Buon Ma Thuot.

The original epic poem was published in 2015, and I had began the translation of Tibet by Lê Vĩnh Tài​ mid July 2019, it took me more than two years to fully finalised and published the translation on #songngutaitram .

I’m hoping to one day get the opportunity to read this incredible poem for you live.

you stand
silent
a mountain imposing
into the clouds biting
two arms two wings
flying…
_____
người đứng
lặng im
sừng sững như một ngọn núi
cắn vào mây
hai tay hai cánh
bay…
