Suddenly A Memory


His encounter with
life so brief

As the sun warmed

As if a leaf caught
in the wind
carried him away

Before my eyes he
vanished

Suddenly a memory
of yesterday.

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
