A Haibun

Not sure what’s going on with me on the inside. Whatever it is, its not truly bubbling up to the surface. It’s lurking deep within. Every now and then I get snatches of it. It feels like shades of blue. On this spring day, winter lingers. The kid-musician down the block is not helping. The mournful notes from his violin an interim shroud to these snatches of blue.

crows atop branches
flit at the bidding of the wind –
on the lookout for spring

Tanka -Intriguing Times

strange ferocity,
delighting in turbulence
shadowy figures
slips in and out of the cold
life in most intriguing times

spring takes her chances
through the clutches of winter…
nothing being equal

Bounce -A Quadrille

Photo of my creek

waters of the creek
runs with abandon
living life at will
bouncing, gurgling
shifting shape
swirling, whirling
spitting bubbles
cavorting over rocks
hugging the shore
wrapping around boulders
tumbling mini precipice
in noisy splashy rush
roaring in its bounce
living life out loud
