[Poems of inspiration by Pastor Jung Myeong-Seok] Whale and Shrimp
Translation : Red Wings

 

 

Burning

The whale’s shimjeong*,

A thatch of shrimp

Causes anxiety.
 

The whale,

With burning anxiety,

Engulfs

The sea water,

Cooling

His burning heart.
 

And then, without a trace

The shrimp

Vanish.


(Translator’s note: Shimjeong is the Korean term meaning “deep heart.”)


<Whale and Shrimp by Pastor Jung Myung Seok, Joeun Sori, January 2012>

 

 


새우 떼들
 고래
 심정 태우고
 애간장을 태워
 
 고래
 속이 타서
 바닷물을
 들이마셔
 타는 속을
 식히니
 
 새우 떼가
 온 데 간 데
 없어졌다


<2012년 1월 조은소리 정명석 목사의 '고래 새우'>
