a few green buds -
the turtle pokes his head
through the sky

midnight -
a cat laps the moon
in a water bowl

birdbath —
a sparrow pecks
at the frozen sun

her damp hair
turns golden by the fire —
winter rain

rain
on the window pane —
the evergreens drip

in the pink!
a sparrow flies out
of an azalea

on the birches,
as if for them alone —
silver moonlight

windswept —
beyond the rippled snow

the rippled lake

rolling grey fog —
a boat disappears

with a wave

lattice window —
the lacemaker pauses

to gaze at the moon

fishing in the rain —
I let a rainbow trout

off the hook

morning mist —
the foghorn drowned out

by the waves

summer fog —
a gull disappears

into the jetty

tinywords, August 4 2006

 

full moon —
the hush of fallen snow

over the city

moonlit night —
the pond floats

a water-lily

across the lawn
