Arrow “Haiku”

in the cavern of time
water drips
and in No daylight

it argues with rock
and in a way it,
eventually wins

drop by drop
it points the way
out the subterranean

for water has no aim
and is not an archer,
two fingers at Agincourt

a Fletcher finds
for himself
the feathers in the Dao

he sees how they
are so zipped together
and he fingers them

and when the string
is so, so very taught
there is a release

but before that
the pretence and the tension
is but a game

in the cleft is written
a song unspoken
waiting for voices

shame would it be
if never hear
were they, to listen

in the cavern of time
water drips
in No daylight
