light crystals


Your soul sparks
invested, - not a failure –
light crystals,
arranged in crusty words
don’t look back, you’re creator

clarity

cloudy
in every breath I take
the clarity of moment
the snowy marshmallow are
melting on my lips

behind the light

behind the light
I didn’t ask for mercy -
immersion into love

abode

Nature subside 
In the neck of the woods
my abode

clouds


clouds
dramatic cool
the tears follow
symmetric snowflakes
or pouring cats and dogs

novel snow


novel snow
white on bare wood
taste of hidden truth
until spring discovers
moldy wounds

twilight


eve twilight
a touch of synergy
at the other side of horizon
a soft growing light
dawn crystal-gazing

still life


        *
walking
endless beach
zero gravity

   **
the keys
being lost in the car
unlocked souls

 ***
grounding
appetizers
full course dinner

****
embrace
longer than year
a moment

meaning of life


cars in the train
windows framed
world stories

unfolding
                                in furious rhythm
a flute trembling voice

a blueprint
we walked here
for aeons

genesis
the sand in my pockets
I’m a Fool

on our way home


seeing light
a chin down, back bent
in the puddle
leaves boast of new clothes
air drunk with fall seasoning

the time with


One face
cheeks blushing
oblong

a curve
instead of a straight line
shimmers

just omen
moving along
faith

the quest
recycling starbursts
the souls mingle

the herald crow call the herd
the wind pull heart to stay

it may not last



a tangent
the fire-breathing dragon
to a circle of despair

Uranus forms a semi-square
with Neptune

Celebration

Plum blossom in the snow


Celebration
finally, winter has gone
early plum blossoms
                                                                             © Chèvrefeuille

light fragrance tickles the nostrils
as soon as I get outside

spring thaw
human&dog cakewalk
cracks on the ice

awakened sparrows
looking for last year crumbs

morning sun
glances joyfully
early plum blossoms

a little petal’s soaring
even a bird has a dream…

at the courtyard

Courtyard blues


at the courtyard
curly creepers keep track
the stories

hastily tapping heels,
creak of loosely closed door
to the barn…

on the river


On the river
lights float to the horizon
the dead rejoice

on the river
breeze cradling the water
silently

lights float to the horizon
little sovereign home-links
in a big chain

the dead rejoice
reading the letters
offspring

a half-moon dream


in my garden
starflowers bloom
come and see
                                                                                                                © Chiyo-Ni (age 6)

in my garden
unknown souls
host a show

starflowers bloom
every morning I find one
when my soul and I touch

come and see
sitting with me
the half-moon dream

Autumn


clarity
with the last leaf burnt
in your eye
auburn with moisture
autumn glamor

on the porch
sidestepping around
the wind-owl

the roots

Despair (image found on Tumblr)



bare to the roots
wrapped in the prickly sly mist -
reminiscence

hanging on a soft swayed hammock
the way the wind blows

Genesis

In The Beginning  by Paul Klee, 1916


artist' arm
rests at the windowsill
come what may...

eloquent gesture
a muse touching a void
am I invisible?

transcendental
drawn into vortex
I soar...
