Playful

under this bright afternoon sun

spring no longer slumbers

birds mass near blooms, they sound undone

playful, loud no hummers!

Blow & Bird

gusts of wind blow waves
through an ocean of tall grass –
flock of birds scatter

Solitude

The consumed moon

frees itself creating shapes

with edges of pale yellow dreams.

Forming silhouettes with dim accuracy,

scrawling scenes right for rich imaginations,

poof of painted mirth.

On this night, in this sky
soothing in its quiet and beauty

solitudes wish fulfilled.

Country Lane

Walks along this country lane leads to the reservoir

Meandering left, then right
pass fields of purple ground cover –
Spring’s having her way

Around the last curve a vast expanse, water kiss blue skies

A breathtaking spike in nature’s beauty –
I pause for reflection

Jazz

cauldron of rhythms
bass, drums, wailing tenor sax –
jazz cacophony
summer night under the stars
soulful rhythms fill the air

eyes scan the car, reading others
a thread in the fabric of city life
in a train full of stories
