the quail at the gate
changes its blooms

drowned in oil
mother’s tear

very old house -
in the window only the spider
pulls the curtain

climbing up on the hill sweating
children with sleighs

night with moon –
an icicle carrying heavy rays
right in the window

the lonely nut tree –
under the heavy moon
night after night

the bean grains
used as abacus
