nurtured in splash of color

Morning Breeze

morning breeze
coming in the window
surf sounds (C) Jane Reichhold
invading sleep natures alarm
salty cleansing breath starts new day

wisteria sways –
pendulous blossoms in breeze
unspoken promise (Pat R)

perfume ignites memories
the heady scent of passion

A Flash of Lightning

a flash of lightning—
passing through the darkness
a night heron’s scream

a mighty sword scribbling
secrets across the night sky

Tan Renga: Sacred Grove

the shrine
in the sacred grove:
a cool wind blows

the smoke from incense whirl
stirring of the gathering

the shrine
in the sacred grove:
a cool wind blows

the crows come calling
the leaves are all atwitter

the shrine
in the sacred grove:
a cool wind blows

then comes cry of an eagle
above the sound of the leaves
