Persian Miniature

Persian Miniature
Somebody is
            letting her hair down
Somebody is
            climbing up
Somebody is
            telling him how
Somebody is
            holding his horses
Somebody is
            watching or dreaming
                        the whole thing
 
                        the fruit-heavy vines
                        the blue tiles
                        the flowering tree
                        the green grass, red gown
            the reckless plan
 
and somebody
            somebody
                        is writing the whole thing
                                        down
                        and that writing
                                    is the sky
                        and that writing is the ground.


S.Robbins, from Pilgrimage
