Between the sky and my body
beyond the trees
a bird carries a small memory.
Days, hills, works
filled with earth.

Like someone breathing.
Then space
clings to appearance.
Like the bird, like light
simple and strange.

The hill, green and red
a day with white horizons
these necessities, this chance.
A song carries a great memory
like someone breathing.
