Travel China Haiku - Yuanmingyuan

Yuanmingyuan
bits and pieces of
a disturbing past

Yuanmingyuan
bits and pieces of
humiliations

Yuanmingyuan
heavy in their flight
the giant magpies

Yuanmingyuan
waiting for butterflies, birds
and the emperor's peonies

Yuanmingyuan
still as fascinating
the giant magpies

Yuanmingyuan
bits and pieces of
colonial shame

Yuanmingyuan
waiting to be mended
sins of the west
