Twilight crest after

midnight storm gives way to verdant

grass, and hope appears …

a full moon light shines

just in sight, reflecting on

sleeping Queen Anne’s Lace

Haiku


Morning sun rises

My soul’s shade is lightened now

No rain weigh it down .

The Wind is Speaking


The wind is speaking
The morning night
A whispered breeze
A rhythmic quiet

The wind is speaking
A gentle wake
The limbs carry
The boughs break

Stars hang
A sparrow sings
A morning sighs

Afternoon moments

Gather memories of you

Grandma’s kept secrets

we all reach to the

ladder to find the rungs in

the wrong direction

Time


Over a hundred

years this building has survived,

the moon more; I am the visitor …

Spring Equinox


Spring Equinox

Chatter of the first spring bird just outside

My open window…

The frost still rides on the quiet early evening

Lingering with a cool breeze…

Feelings of the season changing

Sweeps across my senses…

Youthful Wish


Blarney stone that must be kissed,

upon the young  secret wish.

Leprechauns hide in the trees

Equinox calls winter’s eve.

Promising a rainbow’s gold,

tales of Gaelic undertake old.

Celts beckon their clover green,

caftan plaid skirts the genome.

Threnody hushed from the past…

renaissance wishes forever last.

Rain


It is the rain
Sweet sound
Gentle drops
Of morning
It is the rain
And it dismisses
The winter snow
The harsh ice
It is the rain
It is promise
Spring will be
Soon
