West and East

West and East

. Soaked in the dusk
. Sunset in the West
. Turning over the East is
. A gray sky with no light
. Where its edge cut,
. A white building

にしひがし

暮れなずむ西に入り陽東には
光なき雲切る白きビル

When the mule deer stops
Behind a saguaro
One small, dry stone
Clinks down.

deep winter
blending the color
of sky and stone

……… (Michael Henry Lee)

That scrabbling in the radiator: is it the rat my neighbour saw?

Rain. Lead sky. Lifting its bounty to the day: forsythia.

Yes, I have suitcases. No, I don’t want a cab. “Bitch!” one driver calls.

Buffalo. Thick obliterating snow. This electric blanket.

……… (Ellis Avery)

First varifocals
Renew my interest in clouds.
Cirrocumulus.
