.................................. Kyoto - Variations on a Theme by Basho


.



Through dark pagodas


winds the invisible stream -


lamps bobbing, fire leaves.



* * * * * * * *



Strange light spreads across


ice where the sun pulled from view.


Swifts return. No sound.



* * * * * * * *



After rain, branches


release pink blossom torrents.


Hear the cuckoo’s cry.



* * * * * * * *



Warm breeze in curtains


wakes me to sunlight, white wings,


dove curled at my breast.
