my white room


i never saw a moor—
i never saw the sea—
yet know i how the heather looks
and what a billow be.

according to an ancient chinese legend, 
an emperor was told that the dragonfly island in 
the sunrise sea (japan) had 
he sent a dozen 
young men and a dozen girls to the island. 




they arrived at the islands after surviving 
perilous storms and finding neither 
magic herb nor inhabitants on the island, 
they decided to stay. 
and the place became their homeland, 



late autumn, indian summer 
i go to my garden in order to look at
these deep purples and maroons chrysanthemum







and here is the best spot,
with rusty tag and smaller flowers
