明月幾時有?

    Newer Older

    As I prepared to write Christmas cards to my friends tonight, I discovered a bright moon outside my window. So, I took out my camera and took a shot.

    在香港的冬日,少有晴朗的夜空。今天晚上,看見窗外的一輪明月,想到宇宙,想到歷史,想到生命,想到朋友。

    細心想想﹕在數千年的人類歷史裡,你我能在同一時代出現,確實奇妙。而又因某些因素而認識或遇見,更是難得。這奇妙是佛家說的緣份?還是科學家說的隨 機巧合?

    送上一首蘇軾的詞。我很喜歡,充滿哲理和人情﹕

    「明月幾時有?把酒問青天。
    不知天上宮闕,今夕是何年。

    我欲乘風歸去,又恐瓊樓玉宇,高處不勝寒。
    起舞弄清影,何似在人間。

    轉朱閣,低綺戶,照無眠。
    不應有恨,何事長向別時圓?

    人有悲歡離合,月有陰晴圓缺,此事古難全。
    但願人長久,千里共嬋娟。 」
