WE ARE AS 


We are as
stones are,

mostly
without

love
and with

patience,
and both

waiting
the sun to

warm us.

SADNESS 


Sadness
is not

when you
can't fly,

it's when
the birds

cannot.

SOMETIMES 


Sometimes
it's the poet
who lets go,

sometimes
the poem.

PHILOSOPHY 


Philosophy
won't save you

when you are
falling off

the mountain.

THE SUN 


The sun
does not
concern

itself
with us.
It has

its own
death to
think of.

THINKING OF LU YU'S ADVICE 


How to
get where

you need
to be?

Sit and
listen --

the rain.

THE COLD FLY LIVES 


Yang Wan-Li
tells of a fly
on a windowsill

rubbing its legs
together in
morning sun. Chance

sighting, he said,
but now that fly will
live forever.
