Poem From Japan–Miriam Sagan

Thanks to Stone Bridge for publishing my poem of the Japanese countryside.

from the desk window
blue roof tiles
those dragon scales
that ripple
like the sea
and a corrugated
green tin roof
then the lettuce beds
of the old lady’s house

when she opens the screens
I can watch her
watch television
or eat a little snack,
she has quality
of loneliness
or aloneness
I recognize—
she’s the one
who is left

To see it all–
