This poem is taken from PN Review 74, Volume 16 Number 6, July - August 1990.Pine-trees in Mist
(after the pair of six-fold screens painted by Hasegawa Tohaku, 1539-1610)
What conceals, reveals depths drawn
open by trees, half-hidden trunks
plunged in mist: they thrust from it,
the unfigured bass, rise to the abrupt
clarity of pine-needles that declare
no more than themselves in air.
