my wrist bracelet
many colors, many shapes      
          falls     apart
shines              everywhere

              *****
3 gentle calla
                lilies
others wait
                in the wind

              *****

the gentle temple bell
      dances out
       the window
traffic buzzes

            *****

i whisper haiku
       in        a
         church
candles and saints
        listen

              *****
suddenly
everyone listened
everything stopped
everywhere        empty
                   om

              *****

before class
           clean    
           slates
remember beauty
expect nothing
hold         peace
