From the translator’s journal ~Warning for arrogance~

It must have been
a warning for arrogance,
my broken left ankle.

I fell off the stairway
when I felt everything was OK
and on top of the world.

I was lucky that
I fell off only five stairs
not from the top stair.

I remember my blog
on my broken jade cross
which hinted this incident.

I failed to pay attention
to the message of the cross,
wondering the meaning.

My injury was light,
but the message was heavy.
It’s a warning for my arrogance!

I am sorry, Lord,
for overlooking your message!
Thank you, Lord,
for protecting me from heavy injury.
