 Water, moonlight, danger, dream.
Bronze urn, angled on a tree root: one Slash of light, then gone.
A red moon Seen through clouds, or almost seen.
Treasure found but lost, flirting between The worlds of lost and found.
An unjust law Repealed, a wish come true, a lifelong Sadness healed.
Haven, in the mind, To anyone hurt by littleness.
A prayer For the moment, saved; treachery forgiven.
Flame of the crackle-glaze tangle, amber Reflected in grey milk-jade.
An old song Remembered, long debt paid.
A painting on silk, which may fade.
