Against the Sky

Against the Sky

Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #44 Troiku Challenge: Against The Sky 


before the white chrysanthemum
the scissors hesitate
a moment

calligraphy of geese
against the sky —
the moon seals it

(C) Yosa Buson (Tr. Robert Hass)

against the sky
calligraphy of geese
a moments hesitation

against the sky
cumulus clouds
blot the sun

calligraphy of geese
break thru sea of white –
ink stains on paper

a moment’s hesitation
summer blossoms rebloom
autumn encroaches
