A life circles itself
becoming what it has always been

Enhancing the flavor of the stew pot
sages speak of happiness and sadness

The most fortunate destiny
resembles the least
invisible to all
inevitable realization

Lifting and carrying
putting and taking
stopping exactly
like coming and going

More futile than essential
more essential than
neither more nor less

Grammar lesson:
If I knew then
if I had known
were I to know

answers wafting between and among
trees in the forest
stiff swaying in the breeze
a single scrap of bark
pine, I think
