' ' ' ' ' Toshi Doshi(Year After Year) - For Rosemary - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

In an attempt to change
from lunar to
calendar

Autumn
occurs twice

in 1691
Japan.

Confusing for birds,
tides, humans &
the moon.

The moon lies awake
as Basho sleeps.

Basho is wide awake
as now the moon

sleeps.

Time...will never be
the same again.

Basho basho ni
(Basho on horse back)
Waka-gama...meigetsu
(Poetry Mountain...full moon)
hoshi...haigoshi.
(star...through leaves)

toshi doshi toshi doshi toshi doshi toshi doshi toshi doshi doshi toshi doshi toshidoshi toshidoshitoshidosh toshidoshidoshidoshidoshi

    In a search of anomalies, you make them worthy pretty little treasures and using a simple fact 'Autumn
    occurs twice
    in 1691
    Japan' you spin your poem like an eager spider his delicate net. I like it! (Report) Reply
