THE NUN ABUTSU

Japan,d. circa 1283

sea wind

chilly on me

snow rides down

 

each night

look up

that moon is smaller

 

I wane

too

as I write

 

not sadness

brings me

to words

 

but how everything

resembles something else

is an exultation

 

enormous waves

rise-

flowers! flowers1

 

the road

East

is a song

  1. splendide fantasie da raccogliere in armonia come silenzi di veglie amorose notturne
