A description of the experience

ORCHID FRAGRANCE, SENT FAR AWAY

Drunk day and night, my body sings
all longing for you again this spring.

Messengers carrying letters in rain,
someone heartbroken at the window,

pearl blinds up, gazing at mountains:
grief’s fresh as scented grasses again.

Since we parted, how much rafter dust
has fallen through our ch'an stillness?
