Forests no forests.
Mountains no mountains.
Rivers no rivers.
In radiant dipper blaze a tiger plumbs azure depths.
A fly regains balance in prevailing dragon roars.
Mulberry clusters are folded by a jade fist.
A moths eyebrow arches over failing candle light.
In radiant dipper blaze a tiger dives into river deep.
under folding mulberries
the moon should provide enough company
yet the empty thatch hut is bothersome
in radiant dipper blaze a tiger plumbs azure depths
under the folding mulberries
i await your arrival yet I
yearn to just be satisfied by the moon
in radiant dipper blaze a tiger dives in river deep
