By the side of streams

Trees relieve
and water channels thoughts
as trickles to the font

On moorland, megalithic menhirs
circle an ancient presence
four forceful winds in turn
fail to scatter such silence

More tranquil still
moss-glossed by slow, shaded streams
rocks mute
the lightest of leaf fall
