A bloom Christen white

An orchid blooms upright

Twice; generation

Morning


Rainy and a fireplace without cause .

Tanka


Rain has come down now

Sun has hidden it’s red glare

I sit rain drenched wet

And still feel the world’s despair

Meditating 🧘‍♀️ hope must rise .

Breaking Through


Make every day count

Break through gravity holding back

Each tomorrow shines

Morning


Let me wash my face with the morning dew

Dress my soul with the songs of birds

Pick the dawn with the hopes anew

Walk among the crickets I’ve heard

And take with me a symphony

Given by the hooting owl

Live again another day

And dry my feet with Nature’s towel

Haiku


I run before sun

No one but sky and water .

Social distancing


Haiku


A frigid morning

A warm soft fire keeps vigil

To hope in this world.

Forgotten


Gray rustic canon

Hangs over winter’s river

Few could tell you why.

Many once gathered to fight

Forgotten, now a bleak sight .
