Down the mountain
lost mitten lying
palm up on the trail

    I never saw it
    until winter stripped the trees
    the curve of the hill

    shadows in spring winds
    ever growing silhouettes
    greening of the trees

    A single mitten
    Alone in the world
    Is sad indeed

    forgotten
    in the violets
    last winter's glove

    squeals resound
    through the pines --
    melting snow along the trail

    monkey park
    the strange feeling that
    they are monkeys

    keeping watch
    around the world
    hands lifted in prayer

    as cardinals gather
    spring in the air --
    one in winter

    could this be the sound of one hand
    clapping? could this be being here
    when you're here? stimulating
    piece river.


    desert temple
    it too
    is a mirage

    fresh dairy milk
    on the icy step--
    cackling hen
