cloud drift . . .

an eagle's wing rewrites

the sky

 

Under the Basho, Autumn, 2013

 

budding aspens —

silence climbs between

the magpies

 

Under the Basho, Autumn, 2013

 

morning snow . . .

whose tracks unzip

the meadow?

 

Under the Basho, Autumn, 2013

 

autumn flurry —

how easily the geese

join the wind

 

Under the Basho, Autumn, 2013

 

ocarina —

his fingers follow

the desert wind

 

Under the Basho, Autumn, 2013

 

breathless elk . . .

so much orange in this

harvest moon

 

broken wheat --

a sand crane dancing

alone

 

canyon spring --

how many echoes

left behind?

 

turned soil -

the taste of absinthe

in raindrops

 

early snow --

a coyote's cry hangs

between seasons

 

summer sky --

a raven drifts on shades

of thunder

 

morning song . . .

a piece of sky falls

from the nest

 

moon-faced owl . . .

the silence of winter

rising
