This new collection of Chinese poetry《一泓苍碧荡漾》by writer Cheung Oi Keung (蒹葭苍苍) embodies her profound contemplation on the subtle and fleeting aspects of daily life in Singapore. Be it the stark beauty of a sprig of orchids or the gentle sound of waves lapping against the coasts of East Coast Park, each poem is an intimate depiction of Cheung’s rich inner life and thoughts. By carving out a quiet space for thought, the works are a reminder for one to slow down and savour moments of serene beauty often overlooked in the haste of urban life.
Born and raised in Shanghai and Jiangsu, Cheung Oi Keung relocated to Singapore in 1993 and is now a permanent resident. Aside from being a full-time nurse, Cheung is also pursuing a bachelor's degree in Chinese Language and Literature at Singapore University of Social Sciences. She is a regular contributor to local literary periodical and publications and is active in literary societies such as the Tropical Literature and Art Club and Singapore Global Chinese Poetry Association.
