Offering
by W.S. Merwin (1927-)

Saturday morning and the trades
are back trading out of the east
offering their samples of cloud
each the only one of its kind
and each of them changing even
as it is offered only once
without a word except the one
sound of hushing to say that this
is all happening in secret
this unrepeatable present
only today for the lucky one

Thursday, October 12th

mesmerizing

John Luther Adams (1953-), Four Thousand Holes (2010)
Taka Kigawa (piano), Chris Graham (percussion), live, New York, 2017

This road—
no one goes down it,
autumn evening.

—Matsuo Basho, 1644-1694 (translated from Japanese by Robert Hass)
