adieu 2014

Le dernier article 2014 est consacré pour deux personnes qui m’ont quitté.

Giuseppe from Long Island.
A big guy with a kind heart.
I wouldn’t even want to ask if his mom out-lived him, for sure he died young.
I will miss the late night conversations at his home-office over trashy TV programs, and at times pizza and beer.
I will miss his calm and composted recollection of personal setbacks and joy. I could never have his patience!
I will miss his sympathetic ear.
I will miss tales of his childhood adventures, poking fun with other kids and cousins.
I will miss the jucier-than-daytime-drama-gossips as told by him hehe.

I hope you are happy where you are mio amico!

hope
ma tante ainée
走了九十多年,終於走到終點
紀念儀式之前的一天,風雲大作
典禮當天,則是烈日當空
從人聲鼎沸的街道,快步跑上小禮堂
心情也像冷氣沉一沉

多過十分之九個世紀,送別路上只剩廿多人
也許朋輩的大部份的已騰雲駕霧
城中的親戚後輩能來的已來
抽點時間還有歌唱的朋友們

一輪準備儀式後 唱詩歌的就位
親戚亦坐下 朗頌、唱詩
落墨最重的要數表姐那宗教論述姑媽的生平
不消半小時,謝過教堂唱詩人,親屬伴隨最後一程
眨眼間靈車飛快地穿過東區走廊,爬上柴灣歌連臣角火葬場
燦爛人生 簡單落幕 點點情懷 銘記於心

D’ailleurs, le monde en 2014 n’était pas si heureux, trois vols reliés de la Malaisie ont été écrasés. La révolution des parapluies n’a pas encore porté de fruits. Les plusieurs fusillades concernant des jeunes afro-americains qui se sont produites ironiquement sous le premier président américain noir!

On tourne la page, espérant que 2015 sera mieux!

2015
