Slide to the Sea

HOM

At dawn, I was riding downhill on a motorbike on the cross-island highway of Lanyu when the ocean came into my sight like an endless scroll painting. Beneath the heavy clouds in the distance, vibrant colors were about to shine through. I held the handle brake tightly, letting the motorbike slide slowly past the houses by the sea towards that boundless canvas of blue. The section of the road was like a slide to the sea.

⼤海的溜滑梯

徐至宏

日出之時,騎著機車在蘭嶼跨山的中橫公路上緩⾏,下坡迎面而來的⼤海如無止盡的蔓延的捲軸。遠⽅密佈的雲朵壓抑著即將奔騰而出的豔彩,我緊緊壓住煞車,機車緩緩溜向⼀棟棟靠海房子,溜向這⼀望無際的藍色之中,這段路彷彿是⼀段通往⼤海的溜滑梯。
