  1. ‘hanging love’? ooooo what an intriguing title, Yi-Ching.

    • this is drying dandelion. however, when my dad first hung herbs to dry, i wrote the following, which could explain the “intriguing title” (smile). thank you.

      our father, the self-
      taught botanist, is
      stretching a thin
      cord from the piano
      to the back door
      tying tiny bouquets
      of the traveler’s
      mugwort every six
      inches down the line
      to dry. each bouquet
      of ten delicate
      sprigs carries more
      than just traveler’s
      luck, but his signature
      love – the patient fruit
