Kaga no Chiyo

A Butterfly

 Next Poem          

A butterfly --
What dream
is making your wings flutter?

Butterfly --
you also get mad
some days.

Even the butterfly --
voiceless
Buddhist service.

In mid-flight
the butterfly returns
to the pines of Shiogoshi Shrine

What the butterfly
wants to say --
only this movement of its wings.
