Legend of the Fall

Originally published in The Evergreen Review Issue 107 in 2004.
Sunset drops in faraway the earth

Sad singing voice of gone friends

When disappear through wheat field

Along evening sun that burn ruddily

Quiet yearning stays Saddled man's solitude shines

That wait for morning of alien land

Graze in girl's shallow smile lamella

That pass to wave beyond of paned sorrow

Along lullaby of echo Waving petals

Dim recollection which dwell in dew

Season of love

That shine on eye rims that wet as is slightly wet

Solitude of an young day

That is outspread boundlessly

Disappear silently following legend of the fall
