A poem in Vietnamese by Vũ Hoàng Thư Translator: Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm PHotography: Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm
a cloud you appeared I was just there seemed like I stared but watching the clouds drifting in the breeze rather nothing new truly is neither this nor ever that
mây em về ta chẳng bước nhưng đứng yên không hẳn đã dừng lại đây đôi khi như đợi chốn nầy thật ra nhìn gió và mây vẫn thường
