chilly morning -
-------an eagle's talon
---------------nailed to the door

at the foot of the Cross
-------a blood-stained snail
----------------becomes a buddha

---------but not unloved
-----------------the old magnolia

somewhere in the fog
--------the little bell
------------around the horse's neck

slipping over morning fields
--------a sunray
catches the hare's urine
