of a morning (I)

a gentle spring rain
opens my eyes and greets my ears
with whispers of things
yet to pass and
yet of those things past
intermingled in the soft drops
all dashed together on
the asphalt sidewalk

the west

living in the land where the sun sets,

drinking wine as plentiful as water,

there is no sadness here.

waking at first light,

lying still as dreams drift by,

here is the bed where the moon rests.
