Maple leaf falls. Beetles wield forked heaven arcs. Through a great
blaze the maple leaf drifts without burn.
Red kite, no string.
Maple leaf in clouds. Twisting in dancing dragon paths. Spinning
two-fold with a burning feather.
Red boat, vast azure.
Maple leaf down river. Gossamer dragonflies avoid trout. Heaven vast
mountains over human drama. Fireworks under the bright dipper.
Maple leaf by the shore. New trail opened by catfish swipe.
Wandering monk plucks it from the water. To hold dharmic space together.
Inspired by Ryokan’s poetry.
