A Flash of Lightning

inazuma ya yami no kata yuku goi no koe

a flash of lightning—
passing through the darkness
a night heron’s scream
© Basho (1644-1694)

a mighty sword scribbling
secrets across the night sky

The Rose Garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens are in full bloom. Folks were out in throngs. And so were the bees. But, they minded their manners:)

Bees were going about their business

 

greeted on entry
by heady scent of roses
strolling through a dream
the Rose Garden in full bloom
enchants sun moon stars at night
