The idea and... More > interest behind this first attempt to translate the substance and spirit of this Oriental poem form into its Occidental equivalent, began with this pine-tree-pruning author's consideration of "sister-city" relations between three nations of uniquely disparate cultures (highlighted in my list of key-words attached to this description), and in a determination to begin mastering this art-form, so as to make it more available to Ockers and Kiwis.
