Yes that's the story. After a bit of digging around I found it was a line from a Dylan Thomas poem, translated into Chinese by the poet Bai Hua. There's a Youku link [in Chinese] to the recent discussion hosted by Ou Ning, between SYS and 2 other young authors on Chutzpah here: http://www.chutzpahmagazine.com.cn/CnVideoDetails.aspx?id=278.

The story mentioned in the article seems to be 而谁将通过花朵望天空, which appeared in Chutzpah 天南 #7.
