A shooting star that circles the earth.
Running through tree branches so speedily that they hardly quiver as you pass.
Crossing the horizon as swiftly as it comes into view.
Running across a plain so lightly that the most fragile flowers are not broken by the foot.
A king shaking his hair loose after removing his crown.
Fingers sliding up your arm.
A loose skirt.
A lance thrown so that it flies over the entire army and continues flying.
An arrow shooting straight upwards.
The graceful figurehead of a ship driving happily before a sunlit hurricane.
Rolling down a grass covered hill.
Running your hand along the shaft of a javelin.
A blessing given with a laugh.
Shadows of sadness shifting like the shadows of tree branches in the breeze under a blazing sun.
A beetle’s wing-covers lifted a moment before flight.
The flickering tail of a darting fish.
Two, light, lean shoes hanging from tree branches.
A crisp seal newly sealed, with a sharply recognizable signet.
Swift, practiced hands braiding long hair.
The patter of fruit falling from a shaken tree.
The arrangement of petals in a bloom of lotus.
The rattling of the rattlesnake.
The full moon.
Many swift birds assailing a whirlwind as crows would assail a hawk.
Touching the feet of a bird perching on a branch in its sleep.
Feeling a harmless snake playfully mouth your arm.
A rope sliding swiftly over your hands.
Breaking an entire sheaf of arrows over your knee.
Carrying a child down a rocky hill.
A door blown open by the wind; a grasshopper lands on the floor, and a few leaves swirl over the threshold.
What do you think?
What parts stand out to you? Does it give you any ideas? Do you have a question about some part? Does any of it remind you of something?
