Pearl Drop

a transient garden, or a cage: the work is a jar containing a living taro plant. The jar is on a pedestal made of cherry wood, with a poem attached to the front.

A droplet of spring shimmers in morning dawn;

it cuts across my windshield as the dashboard’s clock ticks to 7:03 am.

Where are you running to?

Are you the same one I met, years ago, upon a leaf, in a far distanced garden?

Are you, little droplet, still looking for a way back to the sea?
