Baby jays perched on a rooftop.
Cirrus uncinus clouds painted on an azure canvas.
Desire to fly crushed
by downy feathers and immature muscles.
This was a zuihitsu, Japanese for "follow the brush", a method of composition that is jotting down thoughts as they come to you. Used by fourteenth century poet and Buddhist monk, Kenko, I find it suits my lazy style of writing. I was so glad to find there was a name for the randomness I put down on paper or type on my laptop.
