By Chinese Poet Hongri Yuan
Translated by Yuanbing zhang
Each Rock is A Potala Palace
The sunshine is mellow wine
and there are golden palaces inside the sun.
Where a giant is its master,
he told me that I was his shadow on the earth.
I will still be much greater, like a mountain,
each rock is a Potala Palace.
And the epics I chanted came from billions of years ago,
there are huge number sweet homes beyond the Milky way.

They Are Waiting for You in Outer Space
Let the soul bloom between the sky and the earth
Don’t do nothing throughout your life，as if the stone turns into the dust
Everybody is born equal, the body is just a Mirage,
but the soul is imperishable from time immemorial,
more than the sun, the moon and the stars.
If you woud find yourself and the world would be also in your hands
There are huge number space–times in the universe–
sweet kingdoms everywhere.
In that legendary heavens, there is giant’s yourself,
those gods are your companions, they are waiting for you in outer space.
