Sometimes what you write is neither polished nor useful. Then it arrives here. With lots of sentence fragments and beginning ideas. If you wish, please comment on what you find. If you don’t like the politics, don’t comment. Here, we deal with the writing.
The name used on this Blog, 龙诗人 Long Shiren, is a pen name, given me by a friend in Tianjin. In modern, simplified Mandarin Chinese, it is written 龙诗人, as you see above on the Header. It can also be written 龍詩人 in both traditional Chinese and Japanese. Long (龙, 龍) is Dragon. Shi (诗, 詩) is Poem. Ren (人) is Person. Shiren (诗人, 詩人) as one word, is Poet. This is the Chinese pronunciation. The same characters are used in Japanese, but are pronounced Ryuu (龍) for Dragon, Shi (詩) for Poem, Jin (人) for person, and Shijin (詩人) for Poet.
Please comment on the poems, because they are posted here for feedback. If you recognize this poetry, or the poet, please leave a detailed hello, and we’ll talk.
Writing posted here is what I am thinking of revising. After a few weeks or months, or whenever, it will be moved to the poetry containers. There, discussions can continue, and new stuff will still command the home page.
