CHILDHOOD – 梅花驿 Meihua Yi

Meihua Yi

In her childhood, she says,
she never saw herself in a mirror.
When she wanted to see her own face
she bent over the rim of a vat
and looked for a while
at her floating reflection.
Sometimes the water was full to the brim,
she had to take care
not to dip in her plaits.
