Each Raindrop Wheels

wild monsoon winds —
each raindrop wheels
the water's surface
Kala
a wandering crab
creeps into its mandala
Barbara
between stars
can I hear the silence
of this darkness?
Don
*
mix red juice, white juice and air
a body bakes in a body
Kabir
coming off its skin
a snake slithers
through the leaf month
Kala
moon shadows conceal
bleak scars of battle
Barbara
*
the monk's hands
fold to the song
of a shakuhachi
Don
remember, it was here
you said, "I do"
Barbara
on cold days
our scrabble games turn
to familiar words
Don
*
farm lands
from a moving train window
Kala
shepherd's purse
spreads from village
to village
Barbara
geese follow the zephyr
into the sunrise
Don

a shisan renku

Kala Ramesh, sabaki (India), Barbara A Taylor (Australia), Don Baird (USA)

Kabir, 18th century poet saint of India (translation by Linda Hess and Shukdev Singh)
