When the bear in the sky is walking to China,
if you stand beneath the cinnamon tree there,
the great oak where the Secrets live,
when you outstretch your arms and imagine
what the bear will discover in the East,
cinnamon will rain.
Navigating the sky
your sight scenting spice seducing your tongue,
then, and only then will you realize
what the bear saw and did.
And why you now
also must go there.
