Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #40 Troiku Challenge “a distant mountain”
a distant mountain
seen in the sunlight:
a desolate field

a leaf of a paulownia tree
has fallen
in the sunlight

mountain paulownia tree
he last leaf falls silently

in the sunlight

mountain paulownia tree
eep purple shadows
bathed in stories

the last leaf falls silentl
no one around to see
it’s departure

in the sunlight
tales of the past
no longer remembered
