The wind,
unhurried in its journey
to arrive somewhere,
strokes the slender
sensuous twigs swinging
from spring willows.

The wind
creates a concert
among the catkins;
more subtle  than woodwinds,
more delicate than
stringed instruments.

The wind's soft music
is playing without words.
Do you feel the desire
to read the notes?
Will the translation
be available in Heaven?
