Under the evening sun
dry bread keeps
a taste of the legend
of the wound sustained when the thorn was removed
calms the aroused soul
hamlets appear around the bend
trees make signs
people in black enter a house
the traveller follows the lines
of the ruts in the road with his eyes
birds shriek
the zenith where a star points
does not move.
