HEAT WAVE

after the summer heat
raindrops kissing my naked body
Ah! that coolness

Chèvrefeuille

after the summer heat
secret lovers
float side by side in sleep

raindrops kissing my naked body
I sleep alone in my bed of tears
whispering love poems to myself

Ah! that coolness
omen of an impending storm
the world goes strangely calm

ICE CREAM

snow fall in belly
fresh nourishments for the soul
benediction on skin

adding lusciousness to feast
themes of extravagance –
fireworks in the sky

vanilla ice cream
soft-white dollops spiraling
falls beneath the trees

THE SNOW OF YESTERDAY

the snow of yesterday
that fell like cherry blossoms
is water once again

© Gozan (1789)

the snow of yesterday
an involuntary metamorphosis
in spring coldness

that fell like cherry blossoms
just a hint of pink
dot the carpet of grass

is water once again
seeds the earth with its beauty
endlessly flowing

ANCIENT CYPRESS

leaning over the light
at sunrise

ancient cypress
indistinguishable
from the statuesque buddha planted at your trunk

leaning over the light
two long strands entwined like vines –
secret lovers merging together

at sunrise
each time I awake –
a new day has come

BREATHING SILENCE

alone on the beach
only the cries of seaguls –
breathing silence

© Chèvrefeuille

alone on the beach
I shall walk into the blackness
to meet with Death

only the cries of seagulls –
are easily ignored
these birds that cry out in sorrow

breathing silence
on this moonless night
I am soon to be forgotten
