Purpose? What's true North

Not the mountain I look to,

See the flock of birds.

See the flock of birds

skimming north along the lake

just at dusk, they fly

just at dusk, they fly

while overhead, the buzz of

rice flies everywhere

rice flies everywhere

for two weeks--then gone.  The lake,

still alive this fall

Still alive this fall.

Darkness needs its spectators,

Lest spring bloom in vain.

Lest Spring bloom in vain:

Rainbows ūüĆą¬† obscured by the fogs,

Light veiled by their shade.

Light veiled by their shade.

Still the Sun illuminates,

vanishing Shadows.

vanishing shadows
the chariot at zenith

on a summer's day

on a summer's day

particularly welcome

the breeze by the lake


the breeze by the lake
like a howling gale today
the ducks take to shore

the ducks take to shore 

in an undulating, a

peal of homecoming.

peal of homecoming

those off-screen egrets

have been here millennia
they're right to complain

who just wants a last line that

anyone can write from

anyone can write from

this last line, for example:
blue skies, from now on
