Pause, by Sha Huang
A pause in a long walk
Rustling came from deep woods:
Squirrels were hiding food for the winter
A deer raised her head
gazing into interlacing branches
A spider weaved in silence
Hidden currents in air plucked the strings of his Mandolin
Shadows are holding us
Two leaves leaning on each other
were penetrated by a bullet of light
