Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | The bird from an ancient highland (87)

The bird from an ancient highland carries a seed across the seas—

China
Banda
Arafura (glancing left barely at the Coral Sea)

On the biggest flattest island drops

A fluke in her garden grew—
the A, B and Cs

M for LVT

Thank you anh LVT for sowing the seeds in my garden. My garden now an Eden of blooming glorious words of my motherland, the consuming enrichment of the vernacular of my adopted country. 

Thank you for being a part of my life my dear friend.
