A Corner of the Small City: A Poetic Dwelling

As a bird, the egret often appears in Chinese classical poetry. The great poet Du Fu has a poetic description of egrets: two orioles crowing in the green willows, and a line of egrets ascend to the sky. As a poetic image, the egret has continued to this day, becoming a part of the spiritual life of the Chinese.

This is a scene shot in the corner of a small city. The egret perches on the grass by the water, and behind it is a lively residential area. Obviously, as a traveler in the city, egrets will not place their homes here, after all, they need to keep a certain distance from people.

The green plants all over the wall bloomed with a few bright little flowers. The people here are good at creating a green living environment.

The weeping willow on the shore, the swaying willow leaves are like long green hair hanging down. On the other side of the river bank are classical Chinese buildings.

This is a small shop dealing in flowers. The outside of the house is covered with green vines, like a green hut in the forest.

White walls and black tiles are a common architectural style in southern China. But this is a commercial building, not a civil building.

What is it looking at?

 

The cat on the grass looked forward lazily. I dared not come close, for fear of disturbing it.

The weather is pretty good! You can also vaguely see the blue sky hidden behind the white clouds.

This tower seems to have a history of several hundred years. It is called the “Fangta”, which represents the high level of architecture at that time, and is now a famous cultural landscape of the city.
