1667


bird songs on the wind -
did you hear that plumeria
fall to the ground

...he riddle is probably one of the very oldest poetical techniques. It has been guessed that early spiritual knowledge was secretly preserved and passed along through riddles. Because poetry, as it is today, is the commercialization of religious prayers, incantations, and knowledge, it is no surprise that riddles still form a serious part of poetry's transmission of ideas.The 'trick' is to state the riddle in as puzzling terms as possible. What can one say that the reader cannot figure out the answer?


A fallen blossom
Returning to the bough, I thought --
But no, a butterfly.

Tree flowers fall; in silence to the grass; a bird listens.
