Saya U Tin Shwe (EP66) and Saya U Hla Shwe (T69) are GBNF.
The poem by Saya U Moe Aung and my translation are dedicated to the SHWE DUO.
“TO THE SHWE DUO”
by Tekkatho Moe War
Blossom in unison
Free from complaint
Even with thin breath
Showed mark [of courage and wisdom]
Never ever wavered …
Pressed by burden
At the awaited turn [of journey’s end]
Body — inheritance [from previous lives]
Succumbs [to failing health]
Yet, “Wei-nyin” is fresh, alive and hovering.
Translated by Hla Min
