Beneath spired trees

Icicles join fallen leaves

Drop by silver drop

On-the-road report:
Contours mark night’s chilly march–
Water surrenders!

Lava landscape shines
Gnarled old pine opens his arms
Without regret

Introspection   Leave a comment

Breath of cloudy air
Bends reflections — willowy
Unbroken motion

Morning Magician   3 comments

Egrets and castles on my mind
In hazy clouds of unfinished dreams
My eyes open slow to pre-dawn gauze
And I roll out to a wide, unmade day
 
The fridge whispers her steady hum
To soft beat of the second hand
While unfurled bag of dusky French Roast
Lets smoky scent kiss me awake
 
Morning reddens to ember glow
And–as boiling water warms to her task–
I drop into role of mindful mage
Steaming fragrance and fresh-ground bliss

Pressed by a swallowtail’s fluttered flight, chased by my teacher’s rollicking praise–buoyed, bullied, charmed, ignored–my slatted path bent left, leaned right, fell true, flew wrong, was tossed by gales and feathers and hugs,  a crazy, crooked, imperfect line, like aimless ivy with nodding leaves, its moving target emphatically me.
