at my teacher's feet

monochrome daylight

beach thunder on the horizon

watermarked skies

at my teacher's feet again

unseen, her sigh is internal

how much, she may be thinking, more will i forgive you...

outside greening comes and goes with the wind of a two-week rain

the moon wanes, vultures plane across the canyon

how much more, she may be thinking, will i give you...

at my teacher's feet

the winter wren, the field mouse, the novice

the roots of trees, the forest, an empty hut

ten fetters, seven factors, five powers, Four Truths

converge in three syllables:
