An Old Couple Cross the Road

他们很恩爱,互相搀扶的手是两条根 那把伞是一棵树冠,像雨中的一片屋顶 在两个人的推让中不断地移向对方 过路的人看到了一幅画面 看到了一种只能意会的相濡以沫 他们已经走了一辈子,每个脚印都是日子 现在走不动了,横着的马路成了万水千山 一辆汽车停下来, 所有的汽车停下来 让两个头上飘雪的老人走过去


they are so in love, hand in hand like entwined roots the umbrella is like a tree crown. The rooftop is being pushed in between them to shelter the other. A scene to the passby, which signify mutual love and care they have came a long way, each day is another step now they can't walk any more, even crossing a street is like conquering mountains and rivers. a car stops, all cars stop waiting for the two silver heads to go pass.
