The Night of Sevens
Typhoon Sapet left Taiwan this morning. I was expecting an extreme shiny day but the sky was covered with thick clouds all day long. Watching it drizzling, and sometimes pouring outside from the French windows of my room, instead of being disappointed, I smiled.
Today is the Chinese Valentine's Day, which is called Qi Xi. It means the night of sevens because it falls on the seventh day of the seventh month on the Lunar Calendar. It is said that the rain drops on this day are Niulang and Zhinu, the lovers' happy tears for this is the only day they can meet each other in a whole year.
A love over a thousand years still can delight their hearts. That is very beautiful.
Look up at the milky way if it is a clear moonlit night, and if it rains, you know why.
