In humble recognition of…

National Poetry Day, my upcoming trip to the foothills of the Himalayas and valleys of the Yangtze in just under a fortnight, and arguably my most favourite poet – Ezra Pound:

Separation on the River Kiang

Ko-Jin goes west from Ko-kaku-ro,
the smoke-flowers are blurred over the river.
His lone sail blots the far sky.
And now I see only the river,
the long Kiang, reaching heaven.

And if any of you like what you see here, and are interested in evocative Imagist poetry, I encourage you to take a look at Pound’s Four Poems of Departure, of which the above is an excerpt.

Apologies…

friends, followers and fellow bloggers, for my lackadaisical effort in updating this little web-space recently. Currently in the midst of moving house and preparing for a rather important trip to China – needless to say, I’m feeling anything but creative and entertaining at present. Normal service will be resumed shortly. Hope you’re all magnificent.
