From This Bridge


From this bridge of time's shadow
The white blosssom suspends the machinery
Its impermanence witheld spring bright sharp

The stream flows an uneven script
A revel of light rolling soliloquy

As after the wilting and dropping
Petal white absolves with inert narrative

Upon reflection what is the change?
The ever quality the water word
Has a permanence bright spring clear
