NeverEnding Story, April 2019

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu:

transience . . .
petal by petal
we let go

Winning Haiku (Canada)
2017 Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational

Chen-ou Liu's comments: (excerpted from the judges' commentary)

"Transience encloses the world without and within each of us. Because we feel more secure when we have a sense of predictability, we develop a great capacity for denying a simple truth: that nothing stays the same. That can be a challenge, but the gentleness of "petal by petal" reminds us that we'll be just fine..."
