NeverEnding Story, July 2018

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu

morning star
water droplets glint

141st World Haiku Association Haiga Contest, April 2016

Chen-ou Liu's comments:

The contrast of lights (star light vs. reflected light from the sun) between the two parts of this imagistic haiku is visually and emotionally effective.

2017 Autumn Moon Haiku Contest

Commentary by the judge, Bruce Ross:

Many haiku have been written about the effect of moonlight and the moon's reflection. This haiku is unique and highly poetic in its expression.

Chen-ou Liu's comments:

And the later-added photo successfully turns the haiku into an effective haiga not only heightening the visual focus of the haiku but also lacing itself into the reader's imagination.
