The Solo Dancer - Tanka to Sonnet

Alone atop a hill,
   an ornamental willow
             dances in the breeze.
Long limbs form a lovely gown
    that gracefully sweeps the ground.

Adored by the sun,
    the willow is not weeping.
                        She blooms rosily!
April’s first shower has passed;
       for the sun alone, she shines.
           

The Solo Dancing Ornamental Tree (new title for the sonnet version)

An ornamental tree with willow leaves
upon a promontory stands alone.
In April’s breeze, each limb, cascading, weaves
with fragrance. She is dancing on her own.

I wonder how she came to be at all.
Her roots lie in a solitary place
where few traverse to spy her - lithe and small -
there moving in rain’s aftermath with glee.

In small degrees, the sun has climbed the sky.
No longer pallid, he is smiling down
upon the swaying willow. By and by,
Her graceful limbs shine like a lacquer gown.

Her lovely blooms have opened to expose
The splendid blush of buds with hue light rose.

When Bubbles Dissipate

Hearing the waters Translucent lavender flow Imagination Enriched blind, senses kick in Silence abounds, clothes in fall Naked to bare dip Porcelain to porcelain Glass of champagne chinks Lapping ripples in caress Submerged delights allure me Patiently I wait Her cue, for me to approach Encroach, I go through Eyes, eye, tanned undulations When said bubbles dissipate

LIFE AND LOVE

LIFE AND LOVE - double

the stockyards
a hoard of brown steers streaming
such trusting innocence
this outrage in the dust
i want to cry

then this

love moment
a fated brown beast
catches my eye

Beautiful Liar

Water fell from eyes
which held a face staring; me
Hiding will not pass
the sight of your wanting need
So I'll beautifully lie...

A Perfect World



    in a perfect world

        no roses die on the vine

            spring is eternal

                natures gifts are abundant

                    in sunlit skies rainbows shine...

The Moon and Back Love

Howling lamenting 
staring into her white gem
pearl ivory face 
Happiness one pure virtue 
dripping starlight tears over

long thin legs, sharp beak
