花开在眼前 When flowers blossom

When we are aware flowers are blossoming right in front of us, these can be the most beautiful moments in life.

In that moment, wind is quiet, Spring is yet to flourish, a cherry tree blossoms in front of me, ethereal and misty, it is like a dream not awaken;

In this moment, the moon has risen, the night is cool, you are standing right there, with your arms open, your eyes are filled with tenderness and caress.

There are many flashes of blossoming moments in life, it is just so easy that we miss the chance to sense the present attentively. 

In this moment, my little cat Mimi walks over, she settles herself on my knees softly, I caress her smooth furs, I realize this moment of tenderness is just as beautiful as the flower blossoms.

There are also many blossoming moments that only came to our awareness after many years.

One chilly early Spring, golden flowers splashed the field, two lovers held each other's hands, with dedicated eye glaze and lingering foot steps;

One sunny afternoon, merrily and playfully, a five year old boy ran across the vast grassland with white dandelions.

Also one uneventful morning, sitting in front of my mom, we casually chatted, the roses were blossoming quietly on the balcony.

Moments of blossoming are those time when fine people, or things, or occasions exist in our present. Sometimes blossoms come to our sight, brilliant, colorful, eye-catching;  Sometimes blossoms come to our smell, fragrant, refreshing, lingering; Sometimes blossoms come to our touch, soft, smooth, tender; Sometimes blossoms come to hearing, pure, melodious, like sound from heaven; Sometimes blossoms come to the heart, touching, grateful, loving;

I pause my steps, and try to appreciate the moments when flowers blossom.

当觉察到花开在眼前的时候,即是人生最美的时光了。

在那一刻,风虽静,春未深,而眼前的一树樱花,飘逸而迷离,像一个不曾醒来的梦;

在这一刻,明月升,夜已凉,你站在眼前,张开双臂,眸子里满是温柔和宠溺;

人生也许,每天都有很多花开在眼前的瞬间,只是,那么容易地,我们就错过了去细细地感知那些当下。

此刻,小猫咪咪,悄悄地走过来,温柔地趴在我的膝盖上,我抚摸着她柔顺的毛发,发现这一刻的温柔,也正如花开般美好;

还有过那么多花开的瞬间,我们是在很多年后才觉察到的。

有过那么一个微寒的早春,有金黄的油菜花,开遍了眼前的田野,有一对恋人,手牵着手,眼神专注,脚步缠绵;

有过那么一个晴朗的午后,草地上有一个五岁的男孩,撒开脚丫,在蒲公英间欢快地奔跑,顽皮地嬉戏;

也有过那么一个平淡的早上,和母亲对坐着,有一搭没一搭地,闲聊家常,阳台上的月季正静静地绽放;

花开,即是美好的人,或物,或事,正在我们的眼前存在着。有时候,花开在视觉,绚丽,多彩,耀眼夺目;有时候,花开在嗅觉,芬芳,沁鼻,暗香浮动;有时候,花开在触觉,柔软,温润,顺滑绵柔;有时候,花开在听觉,纯净,悦耳,天籁之音;有时候,花开,在心里,感动,感恩,心软如棉;

我停下脚步,想好好地感受一下,花开在眼前。
