“Foxtail”, a poem

April 10, 2018



(“Pitcher of Moon” available at





Great winds come

Before a storm,

Tree branches pinwheel near Heaven

One shakes like a foxtail

Near the ground.


All this wind!

I think of the impermanence of life

The ghost-smoke of one loved, now gone.


Even the snow falls to the ground

But you have disappeared into air.


Perhaps that foxtail

Sends greetings

To comfort the heart?
