image depicts the spirit that goes where it will imprinting the wind-wound.Fish-eyed, seed-sunk, and peacock-tailed

I am deep stone blossoms

turning cherry

on barkblack branches

heavy-laden and heaving in a sleepless rest


I am cliff dwelling

in whichway, richred, windwounding water

I am uplifting rifts spring wafting

I have bent to you---Life

You fill in me wine

I am deeply blossomed stone, a waterjar


Poured through

I am pouring
