Left Behind


Left Behind

Every beauty suffers, has been condemned

A midsummer petal, passes away

Spring blossoms tumble

Stripped by the wind

Low clouds across the sky

Pretty clouds, constantly collapsing

Flown with the changes

Death comes and simply effaces all

Altogether complete and altogether done

All dreams will cease of themselves

Sunlit emptiness, daylight ends

An escarpment that plummets

The essence of flowers

Dramatically ends

Not even footprints are left

And flickering leaves delicately shed

The flooding rains now falling

Waves leap, a froth like snow

Snows that melt swell the stream

Nothing left behind

A melting moon, patterns on the lake

Everything melts

The past is already past

The present does not stay

The future is not come

And there’s nothing to be left behind.

As sunbeams

Through the ruined ceiling streams

Pirouetting till their life is spent

Nothing remains

Grasses sigh and sing in the wind

No significance beyond themselves

Anything that possesses you for the moment

Again the pain of parting

This illusive realm

This immense universe

I feel out of place

Stationary

And somehow

Left behind
