signs of grace

colourless skies pale,
birds bright in plant paradise:
small symbols of love.

low clouds trap the cold;
lonely eyes seek clarity.
spring's light beams warm life.

Too busy to care.

tweeting birds scatter,
always heading somewhere far--
too busy to care


the restless eye peers
empty horizons invite;
open palms of hope.

goodbye happiness

Blue skies turning dark
The light has been swept away
Pain is upon us

Howling wolf

Like a howling wolf,
Seeking honesty and trust
Will he find answers?


Sun, uplifting souls
The healing process ending
Soft, broken hearts, fixed

Dappled forest

the weak winter sun
shadows cast on shiv'ring trees
rough bark, their thin skin.

The night shines vivid
and my soul dims with sorrow -
one's grudging pardon

thunder drowns earth's noise;
creatures hide from flashing lights-
proceed life bravely.

whirling winter winds,
bending all to freezing whim:
we - hardy bamboo.

Nagasawa Rosetsu (Japanese, 1754-1799). Puppies and Bamboo in Moonlight


Winter passing by,
Time drifts away to the past
Memories are made


A light gust of wind,
Reveals the deepest secrets
Wounds are re-opened


Rainbows full of joy
After a terrible storm
Will darkness return?

paper folds, a crane.
thin sheet of elegant flight -
sheer, clean: the mind, zen.

Me, trying to make friends

Poison honeycomb 
Has now left me hollowed-out
Friend, enemy, unknown.


Lone rose, still so fresh
Refusing the new summer's death
Pink, as a young skin

Stone, quenched

the morning dew rests,
small bodies of liquid life;
so we feed the earth.
