I Found

Translated by Michael L. Smith

I haven't looked
customarily if I hear a bird's song
I say (to nobody) Hey: a bird!
or I say, what color was it.
and the color really isn't important
but the space in which an enormous, nameless flower moves
the space full of a nameless splendor
and my eyes, fixed, nameless
