A List of Particles


One night during cold rain

after the others went home

we sat by dimly lit shrine

listing particles


Eyelids that blink and hailstones

bright moonlit nights and scarecrows

railroad tracks near flight of geese

eleven of them


Every leaf blown from tree

individual harp note

lit and unlit lamps in dark

homebound butterflies


Language or a question mark

definable emotion

our long lost literature

these are cutting words


Live action upon a stage

a simplified translation

contemporary retell

a comparison


Rice, flies and the moon

objects beyond simple words

an experience rooted

attracts our senses



To hide great and little things

under veil of comedy

to sit in contemplation

a minute of song


Of every abundance

or of every dared passion

within most printed books sold

turn pages with sigh


Our voice repeated as dream

we hide our eyes from these looks

we feel we do not deserve

something beautiful


A long list of particles

favorite path through the woods

lonely place upon the hill

bow of departure


Many moods of a painter

painting dust in the sunlight

dark corners of a journey

a lamp lit at dawn


A clarinet to travel

a bottle of cold water

that never seems empty

these small humble hands



Truth and untruth in our thoughts

sighs and murmurs are windows

an overflowing leisure

will drop into dust


Honor abundance with pain

let time of offering pass

deep flower smell becomes faint

set poet off with music


A child who wears a suit

that hinders every step

adds a little fear to play

avoids stains of world


Only accept sacred love

from the lowest of footstools

placed where the humble can reach

all good company


Song of multicolored beads

like shut doors of a temple

a path made of broken stone

this journey is long


Memorable poetry

is collected here today

metaphor and simile

flowers in a vase
