Dragonflies investigate the labyrinth void
Of water lily laced with heliotrope cherry,
A sliver of cobalt moon ablazes the violet lake
Of fallen amaranthus and nightblack.
A ripple of memory,
Speckled frogs, cicada
Are silenced in the willow.
You have reached
For my face on your pillow
In the unbroken universe
