Snowflakes

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

Frozen Fragments

.


                   as days get shorter
                   yuletide's chill fills the air
                   inside and outside
                   wearing all her absence
                   through frozen fragments of hours

Piercing Rays

.






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

NEW YEAR

NEW YEAR

snow is melted
the ruin that is winter
overwhelms my eye
beneath the sun trees stand
like crowds of ragged beggars

the once beautiful
is denied all memory
of where it has gone
the icy house top drippings
ping the head    stark reminder

those cold months ahead
but i’ll wait out the next snow
the white blanket fall
marvel the icy branches
wish happy new year to all

AUTUMNAL GRACE

potpourri of wreaths 
   splatter night rhinestones with aisles 
      of gold cashmere talc,
         stairways of herons ascend
   *        sky flooding autumn light bulbs 

                            

          heaven drips of earth's 
             elegance, drops of fern boughs
                 collect hands calmly
                    chiming psalms of  fall's remains  *
                        a mantle bathed by wet stars

Flower Prom

crocuses peering at rows of bright red tulips near the iris beds pansied faces have retired wilting in the warm sunshine flower prom begins as gentle winds kiss roses sunflowers steal show swaying to their own rhythm with stunning, huge blooms bridal veil flowers extend above azaleas bowing tenderly delightful sight to behold dance of marigolds frail petunias search for gentle dancing partners lily petals reach for petunias graciously prom lasts all summer

Autumn Eve

smoke curls from chimneys
wafting like a freed spirit
up toward the harvest moon
 a sailing cloud passes
  and races toward winter

Bears {Tanka}

Winter snows recede
Warmer days do their part
Rivers start to swell
Awakened by natures clock
Hibernating bears emerge

Your Absence

hear me call your name a hushed love song on the breeze spring becomes summer sun beams cause blistering pain and shine light on your absence


Details | Tanka |

summer harvest sweet

summer harvest sweet
plump fruit ready for picking
a cornucopia treat
one would be wise to know how
quickly ripeness turns to rot
