w i n t e r

permit the morning mist a hug 

against the defenceless skin that wraps 

your insides into you

build a fire, using printed copies of this page 

for your kindling— 

inhale these words



s p r i n g

collect a glass vial of morning rain

add a blissful tear from each eye

hold the vial upright in the midday sun

observe yourself as you join the clouds



s u m m e r


recall your age


go outside: take the number of steps for your age





be yourself at that age


on reaching the present,

continue ageing at the rate of your choosing




a u t u m n


find a fallen aratama leaf

do not touch it

take d e e p b r e a t h s while gazing at it
