alone on the beach
tide pools reflecting
rising sun

storm clouds gather

breathing silence

heat waves
atmospheric shimmering
summer pavement

bringing to the desert
spreading color
a quenching rain

an ocean view
wave after breaking wave
desert of sameness

heat waves
ripple though the air
distant thunder stirs

bringing to the desert
a lonely contenance
vast array of silence

an ocean view
drifting mountains
of 
shifting sands

Nightingale

to listen,
fine not to listen, fine too…
nightingale                                                © Chiyo-Ni (1703-1775)

stir with mystery

nightingale
your soft trill

pink sakura blush
trees dressed in finest splendor
adorned with butterflies

spring’s kimono falls to earth
showering a wind eyed child
dancing in excitement

silk snatched by a breeze
ethereal pink cloud drifts
towards the water

steamy night
heat lightening flashes
in darkening skies

fireflies
dance across the lawn
decorating the trees

out in the rain
cooling in the fine droplets
stars prod through the clouds

after the rain
heat of the earth rising
to my fingertips

breathing deeply
damp earth mingled with jasmine
ancient memories

white valley clouds
rekindling promises
tear stains dry

Wind of Fuji

Carpe Diem #1682 Troiku month (11) The Wind Of Fuji

the wind of Fuji
I’ve brought on my fan
a gift from Edo                       © Basho

the wind of Fuji
scented with romance
tantalizing

I’ve brought on my fan
hiding my glances
cooling desires

a gift from Edo
still felt upon my skin
secret remembrance

Gathering flowers

gathering flowers
unexpected guests
come to dinner

gathering flowers
walk in spring woods
arousing appetite

unexpected guests
arrive early afternoon
crawl across table

come to dinner
enjoy natures beauties
watch out for chiggers
