NeverEnding Story, August 2016

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu

migrating geese
writing cursive letters
across the sky
I finally read between
the white of your lies

Runner-up, British Haiku Society Tanka Awards, 2014-2015

Chen-ou Liu's comments:

The juxtaposition between the cyclic nature and temporal precision of bird migration and the fluctuating nature of human relationships makes this poem emotionally effective.

A fresh take on relationship tanka.
