From the translator’s journal ~Word-spinning~

In my life of translation
I have learned that
wording is like spinning a thread.

But when translating prayers,
the words are not like spinning.
It’s like snowfall from high above.

The words to be spinned,
and the words from above.
The mixture of spinning and receiving,
it’s the joy of translation.

The wonder of words,
the soul of language.
The presence of Spirit.
Wisdom comes through…
