Theatron

In costume and mask
I stand before you a god
Yet no crowd gathers

The Fall of Dvārakā

Far in the reaches of the solar system
One icy body crashes against another
It’s trajectory altered by the impact
Sending it on a new path toward the Sun
As God whispers, “Now you are become death”
Be grateful for the tree that grows
It’s green leaves pleasing to the eye
Providing shade on a hot Summers day
For our time is short and there are those who feel no love

Leannan Sìth

The weed hath been plucked
And thrown onto the ash heap
With this act I spring

I will take your hand
In order to feel your mind
To understand you

She peers from the veil
In belief she is unknown
Yet I her mind see

鸭子在河里

There is a party tonight
A Tray of Togetherness is being passed around the table
While a child reaches to have a Pomelo section
Tangerines adorn the ancestors shrine as a happy couple chats nearby
Later they will enjoy Radish cake and wish each other good fortune
While slurping long noodles with the abundant whole fish
Late in the evening the children will bow and recite the familiar phrases
In return for a cache of hóngbāo
She smiles and thinks of days long past when it was she who would bow
He sits at home alone and remembers tales of ducks in the river

Quiescent

Faint stimulation
Into chaotic systems
Doth harmony yield
