NeverEnding Story, January 2018

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu

two deep valleys
in a mountain's shadow
village children
pleading at day's end
for one more shaft of light

Certificate of Merit
8th International Tanka Festival Competition

Chen-ou Liu's comments:

A glimpse of village life is keenly captured in this deceptively simple, imagistic tanka.
