Places of Love: bamboo shaded garden

What is this loveliness gathered in
a fountain in the garden, at the ridge

where bamboo leaves wave, in all
the colours of the universe, even in

greys of my longing. More so in
my longing that stoops like a bird

in the cave between my chest,
wings heavy and leaden with ache.

Bamboo In Ink, Wen Tong (1018 -1079)
