on the mauve path of the moon
Night birds are calling.

Flowers of many colours
Better than most goods,
Bathed in summery showers,

Deepest darkest reds
crimson guest in the roses
of the same rich hue.

interact through scents and song.

Vivid green summer

blazing leaves of gold-glazed days
take sad leave of trees
sighing their sunflower songs...
late summer on fiery pyres

Pretty polka dots
Grace red butterflies in air,
ladybugs on leaves,
rare parakeets and blossoms
and frogs, mushrooms and cheetahs.

Tiger lily moon
dressed up in dotted silver,
weary of the gold!
