Vigilant the Eye (See original)


Now that light breaks
I am translucent colour

Am sustained in sound
In dawn whiteness
The clear sky

Solitary a bird passes
Like a picture
My window frames

Through the glass a flower flowers
A bird finally perches

On the shores of the river
As though a bird of paradise

The rainbow
Over the mountain

Vigilant the eye

With purple wings
The flown bird
Anointed with the resin of the skies
Reminds us of the littleness of our acts

Lit flame
It prolongs the flight
And like a fugitive
Penetrates night
