····carrying a peony’s petal—the truck
The day before yesterday was a beautifully windy day in Vermont—clear skies and intermittent clouds. The trees, once more with leaves, bent and nattered with the burden. Seeing some of the late petals surrendered to the gusts, I was somehow reminded of Buson’s famous haiku:
a heavy cart
rumbles by—
peonies tremble
