Books Info:

Han River: Poems from Taichung free pdf Han River Poems ( ) rolls from mountain streams, one hundred poems, where reality resembles dreams. There, a first poem never was and a last can never be, forever in the Tao, peeling thin layers off the world. Through all the distractions that injure our lives, somewhere secluded egrets fulfill their futures as speed demons hurtle towards their next little messes. This Brooklyn boy intercedes straddling nature and machine in favor of flowers that soften his dream, flowers between the dyke's ledge that easily flourish without cultivation, a terrarium masterpiece from their only master, as boys going nowhere go faster and faster.

About David Barry Temple

David Barry Temple pauses on the way to his first novel after his collection of short stories, Forgotten People of Taiwan, to reflect on life in the shimmering waters of the Han River in Taichung, Taiwan. His philosophical anarchism, disdain for material wealth and society, and his love of liberty could become the conscience of the new "Occupy" generation in the tradition of Han-Shan, the naturalist Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty. His poetic songs are integrally connected to photographs of the Han (www.hanriverpoems.blogspot.tw) that let you see the beauty yourselves.
