    That’s a beautiful verse . Whoops, forgot to read the article.

    I’m glad I read it and watched the video I had forgotten about that the earthquake would still be very strong in the memory in China.
    Adds another level to your verse.

    Thanks for sharing it Chen.

    Another wonderful poem. My wife is Chinese, so I am acutely aware of how much of a social occasion the moon festival is, how much friends and family exchange moon cakes and visits; so, the loneliness of the man is all that more poignant.
