moonless night . . .
a powerful wind embraces
the ancient cedars

walking through
the bush clover, the pampas grass,
walking on through them

Expactation by Sapozhnikova Svetlana is a modern Russian artist

in water front dives
folks take libations – spin yarns
tucked in by the fog

living impressionism
air and droplets conspire
