– i squatted down the side of the path
– by the silver grass bush
– and drew cigar case from my pocket
– then i found a Forest Ghost Flower blossoming
– at the elementary part of the silver grass
– i lighted up a cigar
– and told my short reminiscence
– to the flower for a while
– she shutted up modestly
– and listened to my old episode
– meekly and mutely with an archaic smile
