Two Haikus written while in China


Adhar ceimigeach

Fichead millean ann an Shanghai

Gealach odhar.


Chemical Sky

Over Shanghai’s twenty million

Tea-rose moon rising


Great Wall

Cheud ceum air seann cabhsair

Fillte thar nan cnoc cian gorm

Mùr Mòr.


First step on ancient causey

Folded over the far green hills

Great Wall.
