Vigilant the Eye

1

Now that light is breaks
I am translucent colour

I am sustained in sound
In the whiteness arriving
In the clear sky

Solitary a bird passes
Like a picture
My window frames

Through the glass a flower
A bird finally perching

2

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

The rainbow
Over the mountain

Vigilant the eye

3

With purple wings,
Anointed with celestial resin
The fleeing bird
Reminds us of the littleness of acts

Burning flame,
He prolongs the flight,
And like a fugitive
Penetrates the night
