NeverEnding Story, March 2016

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu

rusted gate
old lilacs blooming
for no one

Selected Haiku
7th Yamadera Basho Memorial Museum Haiku Contest 2015

Chen-ou's comments:

The contrasts (man-made vs natural, inanimate vs animate, rusted vs blooming, ...) between the two parts of the poem open up an interpretative space for the reader's imagination.
