I like that painting by Chen Jiqun and it goes well with this poem. Also thanks for introducing Chen Jiqun - interesting style and and interesting backstory of their own.
It's a metaphor for their friendship.
I absolutely love this poem. You have translated some really beautiful poems. This one and the Chang e one really grab me.
I keep coming back to this on at this point in time. A parting is imminent
