The first wave and nothing more
A wave has travelled across the world|
Reached some shore in cathartic release
In repetition followed and submerged
The outcome of each is a masterpiece.
A Japanese gardener experiences the universe
As White foaming cherry blossoms fall
And swirl around his feet and disperse
Inside him, all oceans-calm their wild squalls.
A wave has travelled across the world
And for a moment itís a migrating bird...
Coming ashore as the horizon clears
There is a colliding of two hemispheres.
Hopeless acts of finding lesser-known kingdoms?
The Japanese gardener knows he is the stone
At the centre where everything else ripples
Knows, travelling any further windblown.
Knows already heís home on the one shore
And that all journeys start from within him
No one else can rise above or submerge him
His wave was the first wave and nothing more.
