Questions that can make or unmake a Life

if you move carefully
through the forest
like the ones
in the old stories
who could cross
a shimmering bed of dry leaves
without a sound,
you come
to a place
whose only task
is to trouble you
with tiny
but frightening requests
conceived out of nowhere
but in this place
beginning to lead everywhere.
Requests to stop what
you are doing right now,
to stop what you
are becoming
while you do it,
that can make
or unmake
a life,
that have patiently
waited for you,
that have no right
to go away.

Falling Pearls (Video)

Impressions of a rainy day. (Italy, Friuli)
Shot handheld with Canon 5d2 / 50 mm f.1.2

Wonderful music by my friend David Ianni

April's air stirs in
Willow-leaves...a butterfly
Floats and balances

Bashō, Japanese Haiku:
