the fall to silence
of tree frogs and cicadas
unmasks the trees' whispers

Monday, April 5, 2010

between the bird calls
within the stillness
I wonder

Sunday, January 31, 2010

the weightless presence
of accumulated stillness -
night snow

without the walker
you glide across the room
and then I awaken

tanka #1

cherry in full bloom
poised to release its petals
clinging to this moment
I suddenly recall
I am well past my prime


just a light dusting

in your uppermost branches -

white magnolia

wispy willow

awaiting her fountains -

billows of longing
