Selected Tanka: Foreign Moon Tanka

Father once said,
the foreign moon seems rounder
than the one at home ...
alone in this promised land
I bite into a mooncake

Note: Mooncake is the most popular and important food eaten during the Chinese Moon Festival, a harvest festival also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival
