Falcon Arrow

In emerald depths bamboo stalks bend, and bend.
In jade space maple leaves sail, and sail.
In leaf green, maiden hair twists, and twists.

A falcon arrow stops in flight.
A new world is born in splintered wood.


In emerald space maidenhair twists, and twists.
In jade depths bamboo stalks sway, and sway.
In leaf green maple leaves sail, and sail.

An arrow follows a falcons diamond stare.
A new world is born in splintered wood.

  3. It’s not so much that you came full circle with this piece but rather that you created circular ripples that came back on each other. A very nice read.
