Poetry Preface

My hometown, called Xingzhou in ancient time, near the Jialing River, is located in Lueyang, Hanzhong, Shaanxi, China. People don’t know which dynasty Sanchazi has been called. All my hometown story is here.

Thin Stream

By Sophy Chen

Streams in my hometown, thin streams, I did not think they were thin when I was young
Especially playing, catching crabs in the cracks of stones in summer or catching
The water grasshoppers or something in the stream pool, but no small fishes and shrimps
It is said that the stream is so thin that it does not even grow fishes and shrimps
In recent years, I’m always back for Lunar New Year and suddenly I find they’re getting thinner
I can narely hear the sound of running water, or even see the water flowing
Even if you want to have a breath, take a break, wash your hands or something on the way back
After collectting wood from the mountain, and digging earth and weeds in fields
You could hardly gather a small water hole to wash your soiled hands and face
I don’t know if it’s due to a large amount of water diversion or mining in mountains
They’ve made them so thin and the mountain springs for generations’s drinking
Like this, so thin, thinner, thinner, and thinner, and nearly drained
