Comments about Jone Guo
Silence has leaves
Silence has ears, it has
A dawn trapped in a square
The streets have no messengers
The houses have wrapped up
The fingers do not touch
The sea has no sails
Silence is within the crystal or without
A fruit hangs in the space
His face has been pointing to one direction
Behind him it has been the silence of a forest
A mirror is thin yet bottomless
The fading moon as floating ice in a glass
The book with its arms spreading out
Has stopped on a certain page
- that story has ceased to tell
