Banyan


As winter secrets
melt

with the purple
sun,

what is revealed
is electric—

notes tune
unknown scales,

syntax alters
tongues,

terracotta melts
white,

banyan ribbons
into armatures

as branch-roots
twist, meeting

soil in a circle.
Circuits

glazed
under cloth

carry
alphabets

for a calligrapher’s
nib

italicised
in invisible ink,

letters never
posted,

cartographer’s
map, uncharted—

as phrases fold
so do veils.

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
