(untitled)#70

.

like the waves I tried

but somewhere along the way

lost my heart to stone

cast away to sea only

pushed up on a distant beach

.

 after Shotetsu:

unforgettable

is the image that from my eyes

descends in tears

showering onto my sleeves

with moonlight – at break of day

 

in Unforgettable Dreams, S.D. Carter, 1997, Columbia University Press
