Zigzagging

zigzagging

through the street market

stall to stall . . .

the feel of your hand

in mine

So much bigger

so much bigger

than its bottle —

essence of lavender

In the crosswalk

in the crosswalk

the little girl takes time

to hop

*    *    *    *

Shady lake

shady lake

the clattering cry

of the kingfisher

*    *    *    *

Sagging gate

sagging gate,

its latch a strand

of honeysuckle

*    *    *    *

Temple of dreams

temple of dreams . . .

bright lotuses

in the dark moat

*    *    *    *
