Enough

lantern swinging in the evening breeze
creating shadows defining the path
half moon and sparrow my closest friends
one moment breathing contentment enough

Borrowed

Yesterday I climbed the blue mountain
Today I wade the pure stream
I feel the heat of the dragon’s breath
I sing a song borrowed from the sparrow

Unspoken

the moon came knocking at the gate last night
I’m not used to visitors this far up the mountain
every morning I wipe star dust off my window sills
no one would believe me if I wrote this stuff down
