In the drowsy dark caves of the mind
dreams build their nest with fragments
dropped from day’s caravan.
Spring scatters the petals of flowers
that are not for the fruits of the future,
but for the moment’s whim.
Joy freed from the bond of earth’s slumber
rushes into numberless leaves,
and dances in the air for a day.
My words that are slight
my lightly dance upon time’s waves
when my works havy with import have gone down.
Mind’s underground moths
grow filmy wings
and take a farewell flight
in the sunset sky.
The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough.
My thoughts, like spark, ride on winged surprises,carrying a single laughter.The tree gazes in love at its own beautiful shadow which yet it never can grasp.
