Silky Ridge is a little hill on the former Linkou (Wood Entrance) plateau.

絲線嶺,是原本林口台地上的一座小山。

After the sea level rise, this 150m hill has become plains.

在海平面上升後,這座150公尺高的小山變成了平原。

The Wugu Industrial area and the township of Nankan has escaped the flooding,

原本的五股工業區以及部份南崁市區逃過一劫,

thus the area has become one of the most prosper city of the region.

因此這塊區域成為附近最繁華的地帶。

Luckily, the Silky Sidge remains its beautiful scene of her betula birch covered ridgeline.

在過了觀音大橋之後,

After corssing the Goddess bridge,

GoddessLagoon-Jan1381379565161_zps4e661293.png

幾個路標映入眼簾,

a few road signs appeared,

指向觀音山麓幾座不知名的小鎮。

leading the way to some remote towns.

GoddessLagoon-Jan10381379565193_zpsf358b4d2.png

首先進入的是三張犁。

Sanzhanli, "Three Plows", is the first amoing them.

三張犁是一個人口不足兩百人的小鎮,

Three Plows has less than 200 population.

GoddessLagoon-Jan16381379565225_zps34862e35.png

三張犁地小,只要用三張犁即可在一天耕完所有的田,因而得名。

The name Sanzhanli came from the size of the land, which is so small that three plows can finish farming the land.

GoddessLagoon-May19381379565386_zps3ce26ad7.png

您不妨沿三張犁的後巷行去,

But if you follow the narrow lane behind,

在險峻的山壁後別有洞天。

there is another world behind the tunnel.

這是大台北地區空照圖。

This, is the Greater Taipei Metropolitan Area, 2012.

Taipei-GMap-flooded_zps1aa6bcbd.png

這是溫室效應後,台灣淹沒的狀況。

This is the flooded Taipei, 2021.

由於溫室效應的關係,導致格陵蘭、南北極的冰層大量融解,因此全球海平面上升50公尺。

The Greenland and polar ice capes has melt significantly due to the greenhouse effect, thus the global sea level has risen 50 meters.

台北盆地再度成為台北湖,

The Taipei Basin has returned herself into a lagoon again.

周邊的山區也成了群島。

And the surrounding mountains has become islands.

Flood has come, flood has gone. People has yet to survive.

洪水來,洪水去,

眾生苦難求平安。

Of all the mountains surrounding the once Taipei basin,

台北周邊群山中,

there lies the Guan-Yin mountain, or, now the Guan-Yin Island.

有方名曰觀音山。

Beneath the mountain, there is a lagoon,

山腳下有水一灣,

After the devastating tsunami, survivors reached the shore of the Guan-Yin Island.

洪水來後成海濱。

Guan-Yin, the all loving goddess, accepted all refugees to escape to her feet,

觀音娘娘救苦難,

蔭庇難民納眾生,

sheltered them with her own land,

眾生開田觀音下,

Lest them grow crops again to feed.

阡陌青野綠連連。

Pineapple and lemon, fruited the terrace grounds,

鳳梨黃,檸檬青,梯田頂上蔬果鮮。

On the hilly slope, farms was found.

險山絕壁化作田,

The poor and the rich, all safe and sound,

Under the feet of the goddess, people gather around.

觀音娘娘山腳下,

貧富同心修家園。

GoddessLagoon04_zps67b027d5.png

GoddessLagoon06_zps7798945b.png

Behind the loving goddess mountain,

the terrain was yet to be soften.

山腳下,有險阻,空洞開路破長土。

Curvy roads leads to the cottage,

where the Saint was hidden.

曲折狹窄上山路,

路邊隱士樂稻穀。

GoddessLagoon05_zpsb317e4d0.png

Statue and the temple of the Goddess is built,

honoring the all loving Guan-yin,

with the donation of the believers,

觀音娘娘像落成,

廟中香火真鼎盛。

2021:台北島

2021 : Taipei Islands

當人類還在為核能發電、二氧化碳政策爭論不休時

When people still argue for nuclear, carbon and environmental policies

財團和國家為了追求金錢,而放棄了生態

State and cooperation pursue wealth, instead of ecology

人和水爭道,為了觀光和經濟用道路把水路一刀切開

In the name of economy and tourism, humans cut water veins with road

溫室效應終於達到不可逆的那一點

And greenhouse became more than an effect

讓豐饒的田園和富足的城市回歸自然

Let the abundant farms and wealthy cities return to nature

讓地球成為水鄉

Let Earth return to water

讓藤蔓滿佈那荒廢的城市

Let forest vein the city

台北曾經是湖,曾經是盆地,何嘗不能是群島?

Taipei was a lagoon, was a basin, why can’t it be islands?

2021年,台北島

2021, Taipei Islands
