New Zealand Poet Sue Zhu’s Poem

Each snowflake is accompanied by a metaphor 
By Sue Zhu 
 
A small white butterfly sleeping on my forehead
I do not think this is a dream.
The cicadas ring around the red cherry tree
a cloud of white butterflies stopping then falling down
 
It’s an unexpected moment with an unexpected meeting, no reason
For a long time, the idea of ​​writing has just been raised
Its silhouette straddles the light source in the distance, quickly disappears
 
Oh white small butterfly that
Has a noble and rich past life, flying out of the slender river of this life
Cross the sea, bring your own mission
 
For the sky
For the earth
Or just for one person
A big snow falls deeply in his heart
