Even the glaciers
retreat when the Virgin sighs—
owls blink in wonder.

Aurora

sorrowing mother—
a bright aurora of grief
stains the northern sky
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
What can blunt the grief
of mothers losing their sons
to ravenous graves?
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Grappling with her grief,
her world spins out of control—
perhaps she is drunk.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
mother of the dead
lethargic in her sorrow
morning bread unbaked

Shrugging off the snow,
a Lady coaxes blossoms
from her hands and feet.

At the wayside shrines
those pursuing solitude
calm their restless souls.

all the little shrines
reviving weary pilgrims—
honey on the way

Sweet is the taste of holiness.

Hidden on her tongue
the oak full moon is waiting
for its chance to bloom.
