Under the Bashō 2017


power cut —

        the wind
  in surround sound

 

winter chill
the clock’s hands still
moving

 

rites of solstice –
rosemary buds open
to a winter bee

 

dimming stars
linger for a while . . .
the magpie’s song

 

birds enter the clouds
. . . me and my
                    baggage
