In a flowery pot

no butterfly

stops the time

swirled by the storm –
I open my windows

a rhinoceros beetle
on the sill

the black stilts
surround the light

thousands of horseshoe crabs
mating on history

even the crickets
dumbfounded into silence…
rumors of war

On the cliff –
a bench waiting
to pass them the shyness

Hand in hand –
Roads opening up
In the enticing scent of the evenings
