Over the vast peaks of dragon back mountains
ten thousand clouds roll down the big dipper.
Cat tails slink into empty back streets, a white
heron arc dances with a silver crane swipe.
For a second, a crimson cloud unfurls in ancient
air, before breaking on an idle lantern.
The sugi trees rest in the big dipper,
one cat idly bats another’s tail.
A silver arc flashes a lone dance,
for gaping holes hold no innards.
