NeverEnding Story, July 2021

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu:

I carry
an ocean within
my pocket . . .
this blue lace agate
etched with ancient tides

Honourable Mention
2018 Fleeting Words Tanka Competition

Chen-ou Liu's Comments:

An implicit simile is effectively established between L2 and L4 in this visually and emotionally evocative and symbolically rich tanka.
