CHESTNUTS BY THE EAVES

people in the world
hardly notice these blossoms
chestnuts by the eaves

people in the world
are still in existence
a natural evolution

hardly notice these blossoms
to the nearness of death
ashes to be removed from the earth

chestnuts by the eaves
like drifting snow
eventually fall
