August sky
a column of woodsmoke
meets the clouds

 

I wonder how long
a thousand years is
drifting sands

 

spring break
a refugee child blows
dandelion puffs

 

lavender field
in and out of the flowers
mother’s yellow hat


the chill
in her gaze
winter moon

 

forest track
the song of a warbler
leads the way

 

a temple ruin
frost on the bones
of a crow

 

forgiving myself
the scent of cherry blossom
in the breeze
