逍遙遊 freely fly 第一 first *Part I 其一

逍遙遊 freely fly 第一 first
北冥有魚,其名曰鯤。There is a fish named Kun

鯤之大,不知其幾千里也。Kun is so big, nobody know how many kilometers it is.

化而為鳥,其名為鵬。Kun shapeshifts as a bird, named Peng.

鵬之背,不知其幾千里也;The wingspan of Peng is up to kilometers, nobody know how long it is.

怒而飛,其翼若垂天之雲。When Peng spreads its wings and fly, its wings look like the clouds hanging on the sky.

是鳥也,海運則將徙於南冥。This bird, when sea moves, it will migrates to NanMing[TheMostSouthernSea].””注:海运者,海动也,今海濒之俚歌犹有六月海动之语。海动必有大风,其水涌沸自海底而起,声闻数里。言必有此大风而后可以南徙也。NOTES: sea moves<< when sea moves there must be a strong wind, the water comes up from the undersea, that sounds can be heard at several kilometers away.””

南冥者,天池也。NanMing, is HeavenLake.

《齊諧》者,志怪者也。Qixie is a compilation of legends and supernatural phenomena.

《諧》之言曰:「鵬之徙於南冥也,水擊三千里,搏扶搖而上者九萬里,去以六月息者也。」
It says:[ When Peng migrates to NanMing, its wings flap on the water surface up to three kilometers, it flies and glides, lifts up to ninety kilometers, and it stays there for six months]

野馬也,塵埃也,生物之以息相吹也。天之蒼蒼,其正色邪?其遠而無所至極邪?其視下也,亦若是則已矣。
Like wild horses, like dust, living creatures breathe the same air. Is the deep blue of the sky its ture color? Or it is too far for us to see its end. When Peng looks down high away from sky, it should sees the same.

且夫水之積也不厚,則其負大舟也無力。覆杯水於坳堂之上,則芥為之舟;置杯焉則膠,水淺而舟大也。風之積也不厚,則其負大翼也無力。故九萬里,則風斯在下矣,而後乃今掊風;背負青天而莫之夭閼者,而後乃今將圖南。
And when the collection of water is not deep enough, it is not be able to carry the big sheep. When you pour a cup of water into a small indentation in the ground, a blade of grass could be the ship, if you put the cup there, it sticks, cause the water is shallow and the ship is big. When the collection of wind is not thick enough, it is not be able to carry the big wings. so ninety kilometers, there must be the wind at the downside of the wings, then the winds are collected to be thick enough. When it bears the blue skype and nothing to hinder it, after that it starts to plan to migrate to the south.
