I see story: the rise of rice from the paddy,
shoots the colour of trust.  Grains of rain fall,
shaken from the rain-giver’s basket.  Rice broken

into bowls, mouths. 

Broken, Rising

“Ho! Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
Rain may fall, and wind may blow
And many miles be still to go
But under a tall tree will I lie
And let the clouds go sailing by”

― J.R.R. Tolkien
