A Wee Foursome

118 photo 118_zps903b31b8.jpg

(I’m on the road this week, so this wee foursome is all I can manage from the motel room before checkout time this morning.)

ten thousand ripples
making room for night’s longing—
moon in the frog pond
~~ ~~
driven by the wind
temple bells tear time into
ten thousand pieces
~~ ~~
In ten thousand stars
lies no key to happiness—
seek the old slate roof.
~~ ~~
become the stitches—
ten thousand of them or more—
that repair torn mesh
