Eyewitnesses

ponds fountain      aired water       fishes' breath 

sounds vanish      silence rules       water moves 

drowned thoughts flow     space for minds      emptiness 

fishes float      down below     looking up 

spectators     on the shore     looking down

sharing worlds     land unites     with water 

fishes' view      men's vision     worlds unite 


((Set of ?) Monoku for the Ellip contest of Gingo..

    wow, you went ALL OUT on this contest. I think you did more examples of this form than anybody else and came up with an entire cohesive poem composed of these ellips. Good luck in the contest. Mine is so short, just one line across! It will be interesting to know what he is looking for!
