Haibun: Remembrance Day

The beach is filled with stones and waves. I can taste the salty air. The dunes protect us from the North Winds, catch the morning rays. This freedom we enjoy, others gave their lives for.

the skies a brighter blue

Haibun: A Sunrise In November

When the sun breaks through the mountain slowly wakes her sounds. We hear the scurry of tiny feet, the buzz of late mosquitoes. Behind some stones a caperceillie calls to warn of dogs approaching. There is no need to fear sweet friend. We are fellow earthlings here and come to walk in peace

divine spark
among golden heather
eyes are dancing

Quadrille: A Glimpse Of New Tomorrows

cloud and mist rising at mountain top in Autumn

 

the sun is ready
to break through
kick-start the dazzle
of mountain dew

while we touch
the clouds we
feel the breath
of Winter

she will be here
to rest her snows
cover these russets
while folding golds

dreaming the world
with new tomorrows
