I wanted to write
about the rain on the leaves
but the words blew away
like the clouds and the storms
and my trash can last night

    They do fly away rather quickly sometimes.

    Whose soft words
    Sweeping through
    My mind’s cool edge,
    I wonder?
    Sound of distant rain.

    Sound of distant rain.
    Something seems forgotten:
    Cool emptiness,
    A taste of sorrow.

    A taste of sorrow
    For no reason
    That I know.
    Mantra of compassion.

    Mantra of compassion.
    Wind and rain
    Blowing away
    Ephemeral things.
