The round and flat disc

Became a glowing orb again

In earnest today.


The static landscape

Awoke into a fierce self-

Conducting opus.


A hunched man clutching
Bamboo unruffled his cloak

To show the graceful,


Smiling waterfall
Of Loshan his two grandkids

Love-leeching frail hips.


A wood-paneled floor

Opened its stoic lacquer

To permeation


To welcome my tear-
Soaked cheek and then to comfort.

That, your intention?
