Pond Song 4.34

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


this Sunday this finite whole__this pond with seamless clouds

mudflats shine at low tide__in the meanders crows


in the vast gray an egret__pale body stretched out

low over the shallows__white exceptions shout


silently Li Po’s presence__nothing’s doing wu-wei

a beach rose shelters a beetle__rain is on the way
