leaf by leaf


leaf by leaf
kids linked them into a chain
the length of fall

the herald crow call the herd
the wind pull heart to stay

it may not last



a tangent
the fire-breathing dragon
to a circle of despair

Uranus forms a semi-square
with Neptune

Celebration

Plum blossom in the snow


Celebration
finally, winter has gone
early plum blossoms
                                                                             © Chèvrefeuille

light fragrance tickles the nostrils
as soon as I get outside

spring thaw
human&dog cakewalk
cracks on the ice

awakened sparrows
looking for last year crumbs

morning sun
glances joyfully
early plum blossoms

a little petal’s soaring
even a bird has a dream…

at the courtyard

Courtyard blues


at the courtyard
curly creepers keep track
the stories

hastily tapping heels,
creak of loosely closed door
to the barn…

the fool

Winding road

winding road
the part I see
again

on the river


On the river
lights float to the horizon
the dead rejoice

on the river
breeze cradling the water
silently

lights float to the horizon
little sovereign home-links
in a big chain

the dead rejoice
reading the letters
offspring

a half-moon dream


in my garden
starflowers bloom
come and see
                                                                                                                © Chiyo-Ni (age 6)

in my garden
unknown souls
host a show

starflowers bloom
every morning I find one
when my soul and I touch

come and see
sitting with me
the half-moon dream

Autumn


clarity
with the last leaf burnt
in your eye
auburn with moisture
autumn glamor

on the porch
sidestepping around
the wind-owl

the roots

Despair (image found on Tumblr)



bare to the roots
wrapped in the prickly sly mist -
reminiscence

hanging on a soft swayed hammock
the way the wind blows

as if a dry land
into the path

Genesis

In The Beginning  by Paul Klee, 1916


artist' arm
rests at the windowsill
come what may...

eloquent gesture
a muse touching a void
am I invisible?

transcendental
drawn into vortex
I soar...

Enchanted viewer

Exposure by Antony Gormley


Mindful
to notice the early bird
stroll

a guardian
vagabond vessels glide by
in moonlight

the witness
water, returning its will -
full circle

Hands On

'Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Blue' by Barnett Newman

Drama,
when bored of mundane
in red, yellow, blue
the tongue of anger
the heaven I trust

absorbed,
the colors shed light,
the wisdom came through.

a gust of wind


With every gust of wind
the waves grow high
sandpiper runs…

With every gust of wind
I feel the cooling breath
you're close, autumn.

The waves grow high
why waiting long
to fall in latter.

Sandpiper runs
to pick up a worm
from jaws of an ocean.

With every gust of wind,
the waves grow high
a day set in motion...

sacred

AliExpress | Charlesmood for music | Hand serigraph Italian Art

The atmosphere of Time
the corner of your eye
informal triangle-in-square

along the sacred body
indulgent transcendental spin.
