Live Encounters Poetry & Writing English-Chinese Edition January 2023

Thank Mark Ulyseas for the excellent design and production and for advancing the date of publication. Thank Emma Barone for the great artwork. It is perfect to celebrate the new year in both cultures with Anna Yin’s special English-Chinese Edition. Congratulations to all poets! Here is Anna’s short poem for the artwork and the edition: The New Coming
In the deep forest
among luminating light and shadow
the water rabbit rises with red long ears
listening to heavens’ songs
迎新
在森林深处
在发光的光与影之间
水兔竖起红色的长耳朵
聆听天籁之音

洛夫印象 /Anna Yin

想象中的你,
还没有从 湖南那场大雪 走出,
那剪烛的夜谈,
清瘦地倒映在我的梦里。

我的思绪还停留在
金龙禅寺 的台阶上,
日暮,晚钟,
遥远的你
沉沉不语。

如何抓住
一把湿漉漉的钟声,
还有
半盆寂寞的月光。。。

岁月不停留地攀上
厚厚叠叠的诗句,
而镜中的你
不是白衣的侠客
和归隐的山人,
那一身掩映的枫红
在如洗的日子里。

于是我不断地说,
明年回去,
再遇—
湖南那场大雪。

Anna Yin will read her poem for Poet Luofu at the above event online on May 21.
