Another chair removed from the table.

Remove those leaves as well.

What is that? If they return?

If they return, they can stand

and watch till this plant has taken root.

Together we can celebrate

the first blossom.

From the village

musicians will be summoned.

The finest linens will be spread.

The chefs will work through the night.


(Time Celebrants, poems written out of encounters with the I Ching, The Book of Changes.)
