Winter afternoon—
the mournful song of a dove
stains the barren hills.

Road

honeysuckle scent
perfuming the ancient road
that leads to the hills
 
on a rocky road
women with delicate feet
walking with their gods
 
fresh winds from the west
erasing every footprint
from the pilgrim way

Looking for comfort,
though she suspects there is none,
she turns to the hills.
