A yarn of sunshine

"I've got sunshine" 

TANKA~ 1
This heavy weight wind
jiggles the chimes limbs hanging
sensitively 
a thousand sound waves invade 
visible radiation
~~~~~

TANKA~ 2
Dark moonlight tempest
blunders off the mountain top
a massive flooring…
the courageous beam of light
saved souls upon meadow blades
~~~~~

TANKA ~3 
A place called daylight
where the beam is always pure
luminescence 
if you could only feel this
you’d ask to hold the torchlight 
~~~~~

TANKA~ 4
Somewhere were you sleep
the fluorescence substance light 
absorbs your beauty
every second that you breath 
the light becomes like sunshine 
~~~~~

TANKA  ~5 
Sky of falling stars
belong in my diary
notification
renewing my wedding vows
sunshine begins with me
~~~~~

TANKA~ 6
Missed the snooze button;
pendulum rods tick out loud 
morning bird and worm;
sunlit curtains sooth out rays 
anonymous melody
~~~~~

TANKA ~7
Two rainbows petals 
peek outside with loneliness
against no sunlight
rainy weather condition 
no color will bring you back 
~~~~~

Snowflakes

Winter butterflies
Flutter in an evening sky
Of soft velvet black
Their icy wings glistening
In the pale light of the moon

the farm boy

amidst the green field
behind grandpa’s old brick house
lies a broken fridge,
unmindful of time passing
until my mom calls me home.

One deep forest day God looked down where snowfall lay. Rainbows plucked from sky He unbent. Then through dark trees. . . spears of radiance God sent. For Carolyn Devonshire's Forest Lights Poetry Contest

Stargazer

Amidst greenery Such beauty abounds in bloom Reaching to the sky This Oriental Lily Shows gorgeous colouration . The Stargazer lily was created in 1974 by Leslie Woodriff, a lily breeder in California. Woodriff called the new cross 'Stargazer', because the blooms faced towards the sky.

Piercing Rays

.






                                           piercing the leafage
                                           kaleidoscopic sun rays
                                           on forest old path
                                             the snow shines in cold silence
                                             as spring has not feathers yet

SEPTEMBER SONG (triple tanka)

like a lover’s sigh
she tiptoes forth    looking back
those warm memories
birds    still singing    cross over
and sad sunshine stills the wind

now September sings
a sympathetic tune silvers
promises late gold –
the change will be gradual
promises sleep    painless sleep

mysterious calm
Llke a magic caesura
bated by surprise
in mind it’s ever the same
such gentle looking forward

as we walked the beach the pink skies softened the tide and smoothed lines in our faces.... your hand reached out to mine to touch a girl you once knew

cascading from high, high heights

Autumn

Beauty has fallen

painting the pastel of love

in a breath of fire

below the bare heights of mist 

Autumn's tapestry lies strewn

The Feel of Dawn

You run with the breeze
naked spirit oh so free,
joyous tide of life
your smile I catch in the wind
with every single sunrise.

Blue

delicate flowers
a blue of morning glory
twining vines with grace
my old wooden spindle fence
has no power against winds

A Long Shadow


Slipping into shapes
sun drips streams 'round darkest depth
and I, feeling small,
find even smallest ants cast
shadows long 'neath vast blue skies.

The Magic Ball

It’s a magic ball moving upward into sky with no impetus - r o l l i n g s l o w l y into day glowing in and out of clouds. Sunshine starts to slide s n a i l - l i k e down to earth again with unseen guidance and scarlet in the gloaming. Beauty trails the magic ball.

Bright Geen Land

Up the rolling hills As much green as one can see Meeting with blue sky As colors swirl together Beauty expressed with its heart The greatest green grass Displaying color outside On the brightest fields A gorgeous feel about it A love on the ground below The hills move around Where the sky fills, up above A cyan blue shown Mixed perfectly with the green Of the wondrous grass pronounced The greenery here In this harmonious land Brightens the dreary A happy day is brought forth From this delightful green place

Changing Face Winter

Autumn’s nakedness
becomes robed in virgin snow
footprints prove there’s life,
yet the secrets of springtime
in hibernation till birth.
