Meditation – Solo Renga


silence
the dust of stars
shining radiance

in magic of full moon light
star dust and snow flakes mingle

through the stillness –
falling snowflakes bathing
in moonlight

twinkling as they drift
I am held in this moment

day moon lingering
bids farewell to moonflower
hints of melancholy

rising sun on horizon…
moonflower is now asleep

Autumn Quatrain

The challenge today is to write a quatrain.
The beauty of the quatrain (4 lines with an AABA rhyme)
I’ve never written one before. But here goes:

Across the yard wind blown leaves frolic
As I revel in this autumn classic
They pick up speed going the other way
Swell of the russle adds art to graphics

Remembrance Cherita

And so it was

This stern unrelenting soul
That did things his way

Blowing in the wind
Free at last
Ashes to ashes

Then to this earthen Bowl did I adjourn
My Lip the secret Well of Life to learn:
And Lip to Lip it murmured – “While you live
Drink ! – for once dead you never shall return.
