Dewdrops touched The world of dew
by the first shimmering fingers of light; is the world of dew,
leaves drink And yet, and yet--
the gathering warmth
in their joyous deluge of green. Kobayashi Issa (1763-1827)
Breathe the crisp gleam
of deep wordless promises --
a day not yet written.
Jon Bohrn (2000)
