次日复观9.21之“鲂鱼赪尾”

“鲂鱼赪尾,王室如毁。”

天河潺潺,鱼波荡荡。昨日在此观鱼,见两条红尾鱼,就想到了这句诗经。以此情卜,预示什么呢?

还未有所念,冒出一个渔夫,嗙的鱼摔下来,殷红了半个巴掌的地面,正是一条垂死蹦跳的红尾鱼。再看河中,就剩一条红尾,依旧悠哉悠哉。

不忍远走。两个小时候后此情仍纠结,复,已无一人,地上殷红大大一片,不知几条鱼非命了。河中那条红尾可见,往来有些惊慌。

中秋偶的

日苦胡饼淡
经年时秋闲
嫦娥当你我
圆圆一梦酣

8.26过港珠澳大桥在珠海曼骊酒店隔离3周,9.16起居广州岳母家一周以待北京4周的防疫要求。广州开始随意走动,只是谨慎起见不聚会不吃饭不入店,不坐公共交通。唯一例外是9.17去增城托运汽车,跟托运公司数人处一小铁皮房二十分钟,回程打网约车一辆,坐地铁两程。广州期间全程口罩。

Chinese poem illustration: 召南 何彼襛矣/Shao Wind – Why Such Abundance by Anonymous

召南 何彼襛矣

In a marriage, who is the fishman? who is the fish? what does the bait resemble? what about the fish line? A similar metaphor could be referenced in 卫风 竹竿 which could be much earlier than this poem by its humble writing.

This poem described a moment when the princess was leaving her home, heading to bridegroom’s home, her new home in Qi state(齐国). A slight sentiment, a bit of political reality is reflected from the happiness and abundance.

召南 何彼襛矣
佚名

何彼襛矣,唐棣之华?
曷不肃雝?王姬之车。

何彼襛矣,华如桃李?
平王之孙,齐侯之子。

其钓维何?维丝伊缗。
齐侯之子,平王之孙。
