Round and Round the Well

On this chessboard
of night and day
there is no retreat,
wrong moves are beaten squares.
Pale blue sky
in cold solitude
is the only companion,
hailing storms at will.
Lands turn barren
as roving rivers change beds,
prayer for rain leaks roof
and the wind blows through bones.
A bull moves on blindfolded
in search of destination,
its place is not straight home
but round and round the well.
