(When I was) Young [Vietnam]

(When I was) young
clear imagination
(like a) spring stream
(through the)
holy green spring mountain meadows
thoughts (became) words
sparkling like fresh water
cool (on) your tongue

(In the) mid years
work (and) service (and) books
Thought River
swept lazy curves
stories strong
(and) details full
volume (depended on) season

I (am) old
like you (my) reader
(are) you old(?)
River (of) Song
(is) silt
I plumb mud
(with) my fingers
sometimes (a) nugget
(like) this

Hoi An 151117
