temples at our back,
below: river, town, the sea.
holding hands we dream,
find the street where we had lived,
the house in which our love bloomed.

Note: In 2003 my wife Lan and I returned to Viet Nam,
after 35 years of absence, to visit her family, many of whom
live in Nha Trang on the central coast. Po Nagar is a temple
complex built in the Indic style on a promontory across the river
from Nha Trang. The Cham people built it from the 9th century to
the 12th century CE.
