I trace your glass,
Salted mountain views,
Hours wrinkled difficult, 
it is beyond my patience…
I try to turn minutes into seconds,
noticing those jars of dried plums,
Botan white plain rice bags,
restless mind,
and pages trustingly flipped
to mine the mutter
of the wisdom…
  One's fists pound
  for incoming anger
under current of blue ocean waves,
 Calmness quiets the water
wild reindeer trespasses Western road
near Ped-Xing sign,
  If you let me choose between
calamity and fortune,
I will not decide the fate of anything
The slanted child
 wears silky forehead 
 a flock of geese announces Victory,
Troublesome embrace
the harmony of ragged
November travelings,
and days doze off  through Swallows
                                    accidental clowns will juggle
first snowstorm in December
Merry mood may fall in unknown zone…

Quiet is good, often.


Reader Wil said...

This looks like a sleepless night
Tossing and turning
wrinkled sheets,
waiting for the light.
