Meditation – Solo Renga

the dust of stars
shining radiance
© Jane Reichhold

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

Carpe Diem Haiku



colorful leaves

Choka, Japanese Long Form Poetry

the heat has vanished

first cool day of late summer

my thoughts turn to fall

cool crisp air and turning leaves

oranges, reds, browns

trees thin, branches reappear

falling leaves rustle

in the autumn wind bringing

a shift in sounds in nature

(envoy or hanka)

true love of autumn

the start of spending time by

the fire, entwined

rekindling the romance

reaffirmation of vows

The Spring Wind


Soliloquy no Renga: The Spring Wind

such a malice
cherry blossoms in full bloom
the Spring wind!
© Chèvrefeuille

as wind blows it will surely
leave some blossoms behind

the falling blossoms
in a delicate drizzle
on folks holding hands

leisurely strolls a given
under cherry blossoms in spring wind
