Sleigh in the ash

Second day of New Year gift, my old poem "Sleigh in the ash" by Sha Yan, and it is featured in "Chinese Incarnation" by the same poet, me. After you read it, will you be kind enough to tell me if I make any meaning at all! Thank you. I don't chase New Year, New years chase me. The poem tells a sailor's life and sleigh, if not a dream.

Sleigh in the ash

Sha Yan

The sailor
Spears the ash
Waiting for the net to leash
In the wild wilderness
Alone, himself

In the jungle
When the crocodile crawls in it
And exercise his body and spirit
It is not the last scene
Hummingbird sings

Surf the Internet
Spare the thoughts, spirit flies
For the meaning that you want to cry
Friendship comes by
While you exercise your only rein

Boarding on an airplane
You feel like to travel
And the destination is a marvel
Just no one, there is no one with you
You have to travel alone

For the moment’s spirit
That’s enough of it
Last one is in the hush
When it is not the same vase
You buy, you cry and you sleigh in the ash
