A Quietness Inside
Did you hear shy bluebells ring?
A song that begins, and dies again.
Breathe white on white, frozen air and snow
as a gust slips in, kills your wick and flame.
Droplets of nectar is a bee’s liberty,
let reason be my thirst and rhythm.
Bees meet under the scent of lilacs,
dance with their threadbare dreams
and see innocent depths in a quiet lake.
The loser in all this is spring long gone.
What distance is between death and dying:
a last breath; farewell earth and ignorance.
