dusky backyard
crowded parrots’ shrieks
autumn onset

with weight of dews
tendrils of pea plants nutate:
breezy silence

reechy morning
driving on express way
old empty dreams

crowded streets
moving the years
wretched faces

with dim lamp
no new heaven or earth:
hiemal quietude

wiping his face
under the umbrella
an old man with books

a quick brush
with snake in the fence:
plucking flowers

painting the glow
in the green of forest
unseen fingers
