Deja vu


Astonishing architecture
Magnificent carving
Towering idols
Temple car
Intricately decorated
Local folks
Celebrating fete
Gathering in numbers
An occasion
Not to be forgotten
So true
It turned out to be
As the earth crumbled
Shivering dangerously
Lasting seconds
More than everyone expected
Just when it appeared
The end of life
Is not so far
Everything stopped
And all became normal
So real it meant to me
Hard to believe
Not more than a dream!

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
