a tale


in abyss
I flew…a sigh…water-
fall, I’m trying recall
the valley, sunlight
drifted in slits
musical beats
as patches,
the singer’s hand
frivolously touching strings,
the tale of not return,
the sound of
angel wings…

...from the place invented within...

Sheening thought streaked across her forehead
beamed each item on the long-long ‘to-do’ string list.
She looked around, still ‘from the place invented within’…

life is the game
it’s simple
enjoy

The Lady with the Lamp

Florence Nightingale, the Lady with the Lamp, c.Kristjaan P.

the Lady with the Lamp
small steps to rescue
century’s wounds

called under God squad vault
the Angel of the Crimea

a better place

kids fight for
sweets
a bag of candy,
attention
seeker
the power sprouts
a chain
under the school
pressure, tip
‘stay simple’
the sage whisper
in meditative voice
ranking  a better
place over the veil

bare branches

bare branches
a painting against the blue sky
leaves under my feet
                             © Yozakura, the Wandering Spirit


bare branches
after long winter
a crow builds a nest

a painting against the blue sky
celestial canvas
keeps light

leaves under my feet
the last fall memory
lawn mower song

talking river

at dawn
sun's kissing the silky sky
the road spins

 the isles enchanted by
an azure river's spell

in love








chirping
as if we met
sparrows

        ❣ 
heart-shakes
the world wide
in Love

      ❣ ❣ 
celestial
a linen above
bodies

remembering path...

When trying
bleeding your path
left goes first,
right remembering
vulnerability…
persisting to face
for how long?
until pain overcome
releasing it
moaning loud

the neighbors' sigh
in turmoil
what she’s up to
kids keep playing
a cacophony of ‘I am’
tongue touches
the top palate
thoughts disappear
who knew it’s
silence inside

white noise,
vacuum,
mentality spikes
and ready for
alienation
to clear the soul
eternity river
returning back to a body
it’s cold, it’s odd, it’s cracked,
the holes sigh
mistrustfully…
hey, you, what the 
light you brought,
we burnt it
yesterday…
