Beneath the Stars

Carpe Diem #882 beneath the stars of the deep north: low tide crossing, July

pine needles quiver
in orange glow of sunrise
venus still shines


~~~


the night air hot
late in October –
a wren still chirps

Silk Tree

Carpe Diem #881 following Basho into the deep north: Mount Atsumi; a hot day’s sun; Kisagata silk tree

 

mimosa

 

mimosa blossoms
quiver in the breeze
of hummingbird wings

Secrets of the Deep North unveiled

Carpe Diem #880 secrets unveiled of the Deep North: coolness, cloud peaks, not permitted to tell

trickling water
the scent of magnolia
lingering

Summer Rains

Carpe Diem #879 On our way to Mogamigawa: summer rains, admirable

summer rain
how quickly the river
floods over the road

mist and rain
a walk through the clouds
this summer morning

summer rains
the peony bows her head
from weight of tears

Such Stillness

Carpe Diem #878 the journey continues: an eyebrow brush; such stillness

This spring when we had climbed to the top of Chimney Rock  there was no view.  You could barely see the edge  of the mountain where it was engulfed in thick clouds.   It was as if everything had been swallowed up, even the sounds and if you got to close you would just disappear.

mountain summit
clouds engulf the view
silence hanges


~~~


a wren’s voice
parting the clouds
atop the mountain

Roots of Elegance

Carpe Diem #872 our journey continues: across the field; one patch of a rice field; roots of elegance



This past March we hiked through the beautiful woods of North Carolina.
