Elm Branch Swing [A View From the private courtyard of Li Bai]

Upon the branches

Swinging lightly,

A flower petal wishes for something human

Pastorale, In conversation with a single leaf of holy basil

(A flight and winged pink dove airs across a late lit afternoon sky)



In conversation with a single leaf of holy basil,

A flight and winged pink dove airs across a late lit afternoon sky,

While its owl friend drones on such a crestfallen cry,

This time where twinkling and a king's crested sword crossfire,

A new frostbitten fingertip on a light-footed fairytale,

Like special books bound in the hide of some sad fallen creature,

Begins again reborn from the ashes that were once swept fearlessly away;

To and from, away from here

But you mustn't fight- calm your strange quells of fear and do as I plead

Lay across this pasture and close your eyes to be taken away

Along a road to a time where twinkling and a kings crested crossfire

Your birth and smiles of stars next to you

Smiling gently at gems thrown above

To ashes and special books made of hide of some sad creature

Laying in the grass quietly twinkling, far away from here

And yet again I plead to you- you mustn’t fight

Lay across this padded grass

And sink slowly down, to ashes and special brooks which tell your story

Your birth and smiles of stars singing next to you

Happily carry you in the lightness, in birth and death
