IN JOY

in joy 

rainbow symphony
tells a story
in staccato arrangements

and

under the rainbow
flowers blooming
creating eclectic rainbow fans

AUTUMN COOLNESS #02

autumn coolness #02

autumn coolness
each peeling with our hands
melons and eggplant

a whirlwind of fragrances
after the first few raindrops

swinging bridge
lives are intertwined
in ivy vines

precise purposeful movement
bees pollinate their surrounds

with young leaves
I would like to wipe away
the tears in your eyes

in my hands emerald tears
fainting with strains of a breeze

to get wet passing by
a man is interesting
bush clover in rain

slightly melancholic air
withers in faint rays of dawn

AUTUMN COOLNESS #01

autumn coolness #01

blossoms at their peak
the mountain the same as always
at daybreak

sitting in mellow rice fields
crickets singing in chorus

swinging bridge
lives are intertwined
in ivy vines

precise purposeful movement
bees pollinate their surrounds

autumn coolness
each peeling with our hands
melons and eggplant

a whirlwind of fragrances
after the first few raindrops

a clear night
cooling myself under cherry trees
waves of flowers

fireworks fully visible
seasoned blooming sakura

with young leaves
I would like to wipe away
the tears in your eyes

in my hands emerald tears
moonlit leaves grounded to dust

to get wet passing by
a man is interesting
bush clover in rain

slightly melancholic air
withers in faint rays of dawn

IMPEDIMENTS

impediments 

midfield,
attached to nothing,
the skylark singing

soft catchy tune vanishes
chasing after spring sunset

the dragonfly
can’t quite land
on that blade of grass

balmy breezes distracting
glassy iridescent wings

with every gust of wind,
the butterfly changes its place
on the willow

traveler distracted by
approaching ominous fog
