I walk in the rain
chestnut flowers all around:
me after
              them after me
                             after them …

  twenty buds
on the tree peony …
Buson's love
for the particular
unfolding before me

    a chill breeze
stirs the fern canopy –
sighs and shadows
from bones of lost lovers
buried among tree roots

that didn't come true
were lost
in the crease of a map
& couldn't find their way

  wind paints pictures
with luminous leaves
on the gravel path
mother talks to herself

space Helga Stania - Switzerland

    the slip and sigh
from sleeves of silk
the whisper
of a brush full of ink –
the calm of an emptied mind
