Tranquil Home: A Collection of Poems (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
The author lives in a tranquil house in Rockville, Maryland, where she writes and paints. She writes in a refreshingly lucid style that uses simple and elegant language in the thousand years old Chinese classical poetry tradition. Her poems reflect true feelings with wider views on life experiences: sounds of nature; exquisite scenery; comparative cultural phenomena; life struggles; and love to travel. This small book of poems is worth reading again and again.
