in the water

Walking the sky
a clear moon
all alone

The light snow.
The ice without any trace
On the lake.

Innumerable Stars 8:32
Innumerable stars
Looks like floated algae
In my mind

Bitter Winter Wind 8:37
bitter winter wind
ends there —
sound of the sea

One push of the door, a single step
And the corridor seems to stretch
As far as the eye can see.

But we are slaughtering the world
Watch the forests burn

I wonder how far
he has gone today…
