The Spinoff features Lao poet Saneha Lauckaphone

Read Saneha Lauckaphone’s poem, “Exiled by the Storm” at The Spinoff, with the English version by Adrienne Jansen with Saneha Lauckaphone. Addressed to Prakerine, a woman still in Laos, it tells of the war in Laos, the escape across the Mekong River into Thailand, and the life in exileOne of the intriguing questions that emerges from this is an ongoing question of how much help can we, should we get from others to create poems that can last the ages. Hopefully we will see more of such poems come forward in the years ahead.
