NeverEnding Story, March 2018

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu

frazil ice
on a mountain lake
at breakup
the tinkling chimes
signal your departure

A Hundred Gourds, 4:2, March 2015

Chen-ou Liu's comments:

The juxtaposition of these two concrete and evocative visual and auditory images is emotionally resonant, and on second reading, the upper verse works well on two levels, literal and symbolic.
