Moon – Haibun

Lately, there has been nothing to the days but gray. It looks like a brewing storm. But it would turn out to be a calm slate of gray that just lingers. This look is carried through to the nights.

My crystal ball can’t say how clear the night sky will be in the mountains. But I am really looking forward to getting out of the city just the same.

The plan is to leave at eight in the morning, so naturally we left at eleven. This is always the case. Especially when this is not going to be a day trip.

Pedestrians are walking over the Tappan Zee bridge walkway. This is a new addition. What an amazing view that must be. That, is going on my to do list.

Ongoing road works along the route is finally over. This makes for a more pleasant ride. Along the way, we pull over every now and then for photos of turning leaves.

In the mountains I look forward to gazing at a night sky that offers some rewards.

Summer Storms – A Shi Rensa Haiku

an eerie quiet takes hold –

eye of summer storm

 

 

eye of summer storm

pine and hibiscus stand still

in recovery mode

 

 

in recovery mode

after being flung here and there –

hurricane force winds

 

 

hurricane force winds

storm now more wild winds than rain-

skies once again gray

Change – A Tanka

on the face of it

change sneaks around the corner

taking hold like vines

surging for the summer sun –

securing it’s space in time

A Sliver of Light

unlikely voices sharing
balls up off the floor, somewhat
are we on the verge
of getting the emperor clothed!
a sliver of light

Elegance

a pair of swans play
on calm waters of the bay
elegant splish splash
