Hearing of Li Bai's Exile

Sunken in this chair,
gazing across the lane,
the hedgerow cloaks the streetlight,
hides the houses sloping to the sea.
Tapping upon a keyboard
reaches this room,
a message reaches your exile
through my dreams

inspired by the poem by Tang dynasty poet Du Fu, dreaming of his friend, poet Li Bai.
