Mua Roi Nuoc – “making puppets dance on water“

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Hanoi is the iconic Water Puppets Show!

 

Για αιώνες, τα παιδιά στο Βιετνάμ παρακολουθούν ένα μοναδικό είδος κουκλοθέατρου που εκτελείται στο νερό. Οι παίκτες των κούκλων βρίσκονται μέσα στο νερό και από εκεί κινούν τους πρωταγωνιστές.

Time for Meditation….

Take it easy, Sadness. Settle down.
You asked for evening. Now, it’s come. It’s here.
A choking fog has blanketed the town,
infecting some with calm, the rest with fear.

While the squalid throng of mortals feels the sting
of heartless pleasure swinging its barbed knout
and finds remorse in slavish partying,
take my hand, Sorrow. I will lead you out,

away from them. Look as the dead years lurch,
in tattered clothes, from heaven’s balconies.
From the depths, regret emerges with a grin.

The spent sun passes out beneath an arch,
and, shroudlike, stretched from the antipodes,
—hear it, O hear, love!—soft night marches in.
