Pond Song 4.31

Creation names a tense doubleness in affirming both absoluteness and relatedness. G&B 253

 

where white roses were pale leaves__cornflowers reach up and out

spent balloons flag the high grass__dust of fireworks blows about

 

for bearings in his rain-soaked hut__Basho recalls the Elder Du

spirit wanders with things mind wanders__high tide patterns move through

 

rock culverts wind-wrought waves__nations rise in violence fall

in the repetition this difference__this wonder this that it is at all
