If I had to say it when I had to say it, the man could not be relieved. http: //xn- c79a67g3zy6dt4w.zxc700 - ???????? http: //xn- o80b27i69npibp5en0j.zxc700 - ?????? http: //xn- oi2b30g3ueowi6mjktg.zxc700 - ?????? http: //xn- mp2bs6av7jp7brh74w2jv.zxc700 - ??????? http: //xn- ij2bx6j77bo2kdi289c.zxc700 - ?????? http: //xn- o80b910a26eepc81il5g.zxc700 - ?????? http: //xn- o80b67oh5az7z4wcn0j.zxc700 - ??????

For a taste of his strengths, I recommend CHILDHOOD LAKE HAIKU. (I have left some comments beneath it, explaining why I like it so much.)

Chenou Liu is a haiku master. He walks resolutely along the HAIKAI NO MICHI, getting deeper into it every day. His mastery cannot be reduced to predictable angles of contemplation...he is making new discoveries all the time. I am very glad to have stumbled upon this collection, like a cache of food left in wilderness cabin. It is worthy of much study, but for now, I can only nibble at the edges.
