#135: The storm-after

(Lee Ka-sing - The storm-after)

After Kato Gyodai (1732-92)

Mid March

The snow stays
a crow creaks
under a shrub

I start the car
and turn the headlights
down the tunnel
of a stray cat’s eye

last year’s grass
tears at the soiled

the wind is weak
but strong enough
to break off
a tree’s right arm
