Purity

witnessing pilgrims
in their search for purity—
pine and pond and stone
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
In the bitter way,
even glorious visions
make pilgrims stumble.

old men playing chess
on a chilly afternoon
fumbling every move
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
a glorious game
checkmate in only three moves—
the wily old man
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
The petite player,
placing the white knight just so,
declares victory.
