unsan musho
definition: scattered clouds, disappearing mist
meaning: disappear without a trace

what of the circlets spinning in the pond?
where have the ripples made their way, gone?
tunes steeling away fleeting melody songs
when we left all our words unspoken

what of the tabby cats lapping their drink?
where have the soft little paws last tread?
dreams spiriting into our canopy beds
where we last dreamt of our promises

what of the sweetened and upturning lips?
where have the stories fallen to rest?
scenes floating past as the landscapes blur
while we become who we are or were
