A Morning in Spring 春曉

Stayed awake all night for the scene.

Sunlight and shadows on a park avenue

The wind howls, and cradles itself. The wind questions, and tries to answer as well. Hollow calls into the hollow town from the koel bird, "Who else? Who else?" failing to win a mate, but fail its much-annoyed treemates. Rain pours and sweeps flowers off to ground, yet nourishing the trunk for a stronger plant. I was trying to write myself a lullaby, which keeps me up to see this first sunshine.
