day's journey...

















Haiku - Day's Journey


herons rise from water-rings

on the pond, in clouds, lotus blossoms


wind song

the slight stir of my reflection


quiet stream

though the clouds bird sounds


clouds in the wetlands

break from the reeds


between flashes, a blossomless tree

old garden, leaves in the pool, parting

summer rain - a white stone, whiter

stepping stones -

near the waterfall, my shadow


lotus leaf - the sound of rain returns


sunset- through the reeds

a sharply drawn silhouette


twilight’s lavender cools the pond


moonlight, the useless color

of fragrant pines


waning moon

the weight of blossoms

grows dim
