Saturday Poem

As we take the thing apart,
we forget what it was.
…………… —Roshi Bob

Duration

Water drops
are no longer cloud
Fruits and leaves
are not tree
Petals are not rose
Tears are not calm sea

Everything that comes off
teaches us to fall
.

Duracíon
Gotas de agua
ya no son nube
Frutos y hojas
no son árbol
Pétalos no son rosa
Lágrimas no son mar sereno

Todo lo que se desprende
nos enseña a caer
