At Yun’meng Mountain

By Cigeng Zhang

PROMPT — I will not rest until ...

The old vine of the wild kiwi fruit

bent like a flow of rivulet hanging upside down

The babbling stream

ran through the woods in rhythm

A perky leopard cat

jumped over the damp stones

Lush elm leaves

turned towards the sun

The verdant faces of full desire

smelled of dew

A chickadee twittering

leaped onto the little faces

to meet the old acquaintance

or, find a new friend
