Under A Wan Sun

Under a Wan Sun
On a cool day
Under a wan sun
Sintering through the cloud
Throwing speculars here
A weak shadow there

A young man throws sticks to his dog
Which gleefully, gaspingly
Retrieves them

And all I can think is
How perfect life can be
With so little effort
So little thought
So little need

And then I
Just stop thinking
