Tanka Splendour

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

smaller, shorter
these childhood lanes
the familiar scenes still vivid
the kites, the marbles, the games..
oh! this longing to see childhood friends

my feet pain and my
mid-age heart nearly leaps
out as i climb this great wall
the laughters i hear echo
in the hills like the cries of builders
