茶心事  

作者:胡悅昀 Hu Yue Yun

 

文人雅士愛茶,凡夫俗子也好茶,飲茶品茗,以融入生活起居飲食裏,若沒有茶湯的調和,生活也不那麽姿采。

當與友人圍坐一台品飲時,都滿懷喜悅,唯一的遺憾,也是終生沒有辦法實現的——沏一杯好茶,奉給摯愛的父親,讓他也能分享我的喜悅。而今,也只能沏在黃土上,在這陰陽相隔的空間,讓茶香袅袅盡訴我的心事,爸爸,您知道嗎?在這茶湯裏,滲有我的綿綿思念與淚滴,若有時間調整器,爸爸,就讓我們在這,敘訴父母塵緣。

對茶的愛,就像對爸爸的愛,永遠永遠,不會變質,奉勸身邊的朋友,當有幸奉上清茶一杯給至親時,請不要耽誤,不然再清香的茶,也載不完此生的遺憾。

 

My Tea Story

By Hu Yue Yun

Writers and scholars love tea, so do men in the street. Without enjoyment and appreciation of tea in our daily life, it will be not as colourful anymore.

I feel the contentment when my friends and I are enjoying tea. My only regret – something which I can't quite possibly overturn – is that I did not brew a pot of good tea and serve my respectful and lovely father so that he can share my fulfillment. I can only now pour his portion of tea onto the soil – in the hope that between the space of death and life he can possibly sense the story that I am going to tell him. Dad, you know what? In this cup of tea lies my endless thoughts and tears for you. If there is a time machine, how great would it be if we can meet together and prolong our togetherness.

My love for tea and my father will remain the same forever. My dear friends, brew and serve tea to your parents when they are still around. Procrastinate no more – for a cup of hearty tea can't afford to bear a slight sense of remorse.
