  • 1. Are you still playing flute?

2. Are you still playing yourflute?When there is hardly time for our loveI am feeling guiltyTo be longing for your songThe melody concealed in the slim hollow of thebambooUncovered by the breath of an artistComposed by his fingersBlown by the windTo the depth of my heart. 3. Are you still playing yourflute?In the village so quiet and desertedAmidst the sick rice fieldsWhile here it has become a luxuryTo spend time watching the rainGazing at the evening raysCollecting dew dropsOr enjoying the fragrance of flowers. 4. Are you still playing yourflute?The more it disturbs my conscienceto be thinking of youin the hazard of youmy younger brothers unemployed and desperatemy people disunited by politicsmy friend slaughtered mercilesslythis world is too old and bleeding. 5. SynopsisPersona who reminisces the time he/she spends whenin a village.There are many things that are now luxury to hersuch as listening to the melody of the flute itself,gazing at the evening rays, collecting dew drops, orenjoying the fragrance of flowers.The village is now unpopulated as many have movedto the city.Now that she has moved on with her life, she wonderswhether the flutist is still playing the flute.This is because, there are many challenges in the worldtoday such as the world is dying, the unemployment issueand the people are disunited because of different politicalviews. 6.
