White Heron Arc IIII

Starlight pools on idle robes. The leaves
of the sugi trees play with the wind.

White heron, still, reflects the blazing dipper.
Forest floor rests – no rivers flow here now.

    epideictic rhetoric

  5. So nice and also so sad that no rivers pass here no more. I would miss the river so much that flows in front of my home here on the islands. I am sure they will miss theirs too. http://gatelesspassage.com/2013/02/02/reflections/

    poem feels like it is the same style as the image, but that the bird and stars are just out of frame.
