kanazawa castle town
walk along the river
across a bridge into old
geisha district
ethereal wooden shops & houses
slat upon slat
roof upon roof
the lanes split this way & that
north past shrines
full of holiday bustle
into rows of apartments
tea rooms
sake stores &
town houses

temples
temples
everywhere sprouting
gravestones
buddhas
new years wreathes
strung with orange & pine

bells toll from the hillsides
the city sprawls out toward
the sea of japan
shining
silver
in the distance
