4 Tankas published in “The Tanka                        journal”No:45(2014-10-01)

1) Someday-
I believe
I shall awake again
I am now leaving
My sons, daughters, grandsons and                     granddaughters

2) Formosa-
Nero enjoys the arena in Taipei
fighters and wild beasts
students and police
sunflowers and mafias

3)Death is near
  feeling it certainly
       and realizing
       all things actually have nothing to do
       with me in reality
4)A flower of camelia
       how will the tomorrow of Formosa be?
       the people are ignorant
       only the youth are awake
