after Matsuo Bashō

In the early sun
The flower sweetens and stills
What is now awake

The colour is gold
To attract us like a bee
To make the honey

Among these shadows
Of gathering narcissus
We wait to be warmed

Staring at the stem
We begin to pollinate
All our long lost dreams

On the lake a light
Is made by a star dancing
It is electric

This is you Lucy
Bringing with power and might
A new day to night
