by moonlight,
lovers' fingers mesh
into dreams . . .

april fools ...
a merchant bottles
river fog

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

april rain ...
trees splatter blood
with each nail

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

an old man
crunching oak leaves ...
lonely path

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

godwit prints
mark where they were
and this ache ...

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

bubbling spring ...
joy bursts between
old photos

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

paschal moon ...
dark matter ravishes
the light

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

paschal moon ...
light struggles through
the abyss

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

paschal moon ...
darkness engulfs
the garden

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

paschal moon ...
crosses litter
the highway

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

paschal moon ...
sunrise lingers
in its tomb

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

easter vigil ...
Jesus waits entombed
in teeming malls

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

shorter days ...
crosses litter paths
with shadows

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

after dusk ...
shadows crucify
the light

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

morning glory ...
shopping malls open
their doors

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

unquenched love ...
rising floods too
drain away

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

gliding
out of season -
black swans

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

autumn fog ...
brush strokes level
a mountain

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

second childhood -
a pendulum clock
now marks time

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

cats in love -
the familiar ache
from this touch

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

after summer --
even embers spend
their passion

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

day of reckoning
the penitent renders
his due

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

with nightfall
even embers spend
their passion

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

waiting room -
shadows lengthen
the queue

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

silent spring ...
the song in my heart
has sprouted wings

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

distant spring ...
rain trickles over
autumn leaves

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

one by one
leaves fall away ...
autumn wind

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

paschal moon ...
the light within
death valley

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

rough-hewn wood
yields now to nails ...
tree of life

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

second day ...
what stones weigh down
those wings?

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

morning star ...
dewdrops moisten
worm cast mounds

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

fallen leaves
going the distance ...
field of dreams

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

leaves on edge ...
menacing winds
on the move

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Fukushima ...
an efflorescence
blossoms

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

mirror mist ...
the name of God
runs in beads


 

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

river fog -
the murmur of
foetal dreams

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

dimming light ...
black swans dissolve
before me

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

gnawing at
the dream of myself -
spring reflection

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

creaking joints -
again he brings down
the house

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

mist reveals
each valley's fold...
secret flux

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

flea-bitten child -
an apparition of
cherry blossoms

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

pale fire
snatching blossoms
from the sun

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

foetal moon ...
the heartbeat flickering
in these candles

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

dewfall ...
bread rises
from words

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

words spiral
into ink smudges -
falling leaves

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

pain carves
a pretense of words ...
chiselled moon
