Hi Literature Lovers,
I've expanded my greeting today because I am including links to some things of interest that have been sent out into the world lately.
I invite you to check out:
The first link is to fiction, a story with a plot that involves poetry. The second link is to a recently, and very uniquely presented poem.
Finally, on the subject of poetry, I will include here an excerpt from "Day 7, at Tu Mu's Grave." It is a moving testament to the power of poetry.
"The graves of the poets I'd been visiting were so different. Some were simple, some had been plowed under by farmers, and others had been reduced to trash pits. Their poems, though, had survived. They were still fresh in the minds of cigar-smoking farmers who most likely never attended high school. The same could not be said about the pronouncements of the high and mighty. Poetry is transcendent. We carry it in our hearts and find it there when we have forgotten everything else."
---Bill Porter, translator of Chinese texts
