One Man’s Maple Moon: Scent Tanka by Martha Magenta

 

drawn to your scent
I linger in your caress
and wonder
will I disappear
if you stop dreaming me

Chinese Translation (Traditional)

 

受到你香味的吸引
我留連在你的愛撫之中
並想知道
假如你不再做夢了
我是否會消失

 

Chinese Translation (Simplified)

 

受到你香味的吸引
我留连在你的爱抚之中
并想知道
假如你不再做梦了
我是否会消失
