On December 23, 2018, Chen-ou Liu presented tanka, haiku, and senryu with his short bio and his recent photo, wishing us all the best in the coming year.

Here is a short bio:

Chen-ou Liu is currently the editor and translator of NeverEnding Story(neverendingstoryhaikutanka.blogspot.com), and the author of two award-winning books, Following the Moon to the Maple Land (First Prize, 2011 Haiku Pix Chapbook Contest) and A Life in Transition and Translation (Honorable Mention, 2014 Turtle Light Press Biennial Haiku Chapbook Competition). His tanka and haiku have been honored with many awards.

And here is a photo of Chen-ou Liu.

Here are 10 pieces of tanka with the Japanese translations by Hidenori Hiruta.


the scent
of rambling roses …
can one wife
and a 9-to-5 job
contain my wildness?
