a fragrant moon
    
floats
          a thousand petals
     more
          ghosts of flowers

shine
     pale lotus skiff
          drifts
     past silver laden
          shore
    
greening reeds
      wait
in wake bow
      low

the fishes kiss
     folds
           of moon’s watery
     train

  1. I love this imagistic poetry and commitment to stay with the concrete image. Also arrangement on the page is nice.
