Walking to Work Kōan

Walking to Work Kōan

Segmented carapace of white orchids
          the tail of a kite -
each bloom - a bow

The morning makes the tree lime
leaves fall -
          flash bulbs - LED
breaking fireflies in hands

Those war-paint lines on your face
          mine

The man man pushes the cart of glass
stares into each can - treasure
          the sound of wind chimes
