This Thought

This is the thought that is
Sailing along the horizon
This is the thought ready to fall
Finally from the leaf-tip at dawn
This is the thought looming afar
Beyond the stark mountains
This is the thought newly taken
Out of the water by the swordsmith
This is the thought with a bloated shape
Wrapping the whole world up in the mind
This is the thought running amuck
Naked, never able to find a shelter
This is the thought driving the wheels
Of history, back and forth, without stop
