CLIFFS OF MOHER

into the water
where waves ebb and swell
death draws nearer

THE AROMA OF PINE

the aroma of pine
and the young morning’s fresh rain
reach my words

© Hamish “Managua” Gunn (Taken from “Shinrin Yoku, the art of forest bathing”)

the aroma of pine
such a delicate scent
lingers in the air

and the young morning’s fresh rain
droplet restores my soul
symbolizing hope

reach my words
to achieve peace
in a moment of despair

FULL SNOW MOON

full snow moon
stirs the ladybug
on cold bare branches

© Hamish

the scent of cherry blossoms
attracts foraging parties

uncovered a cache
vociferousness blackbird
small birds in the nest

seasonal seedlings thriving
through thick hoar-frost coverings
