Spokes on the Water


Thirty spokes gathered at each hub:

absence makes the cart work.

A storage jar fashioned out of clay:

Absence makes the jar work

Doors and windows cut in a house:

Absence makes the house work

Presence gives things their value,

but absence makes them work.

-Lao Tzu

Sheep Haiku

Sheep Haiku, by Martin Espada

A lone sheep cries out:
There are more of us than them!
The flock keeps grazing.
