cooking, television news, showers,
toilets to be cleaned or
a book to write,
in the corner of the garden, bamboo
frames, glass doors sliding, for entrance into
a world of white couch, purple cushioned simplicity,
Shawls draped to wrap the one enconsed in cozy comfort,
while gazing out at fountain pond, a monk at peace, with ferns,
verdent and abundant, while etched in stone, fire, river, heaven, wind,
water, mountain, earth, thunder, rest by
a dry river bed created by garden's artist.
Calls come, come rest a while.
from the corner
this windy rain blown day,
from blustery shore, to quiet stillness.
