NeverEnding Story, October 2019

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu:


antelope
grazing on sagebrush
at first light
the horizon stitched
to an infinitude of sky


A Hundred Gourds, 5:1, September 2015


Chen-ou Liu's Comments:

Enhanced by the cinematic "zoom-out" technique, the visually and emotionally evocative juxtaposition of antelope/grazing on sagebrush and the horizon stitched/to an infinit[e] sky makes this wildlife tanka effective.
