    Wonderful line. loved it
    On the sky under the full
    Moon that floods the West Chamber.
    Flowers, after their kind, flutter
    And scatter. Water after
    Its nature, when spilt, at last
    Gathers again in one place. (Report) Reply

    It weighs on my heart
    this motherly love
    as existence engulfs
    my faraway homeland
    show me the light
    of Return
    beyond my mountains
    rivers autumn flowers
    of qung dong! (Report) Reply
