Phoenix rising
the foot
of silent hills

a gust of wind


With every gust of wind
the waves grow high
sandpiper runs…

With every gust of wind
I feel the cooling breath
you're close, autumn.

The waves grow high
why waiting long
to fall in latter.

Sandpiper runs
to pick up a worm
from jaws of an ocean.

With every gust of wind,
the waves grow high
a day set in motion...

sacred

AliExpress | Charlesmood for music | Hand serigraph Italian Art

The atmosphere of Time
the corner of your eye
informal triangle-in-square

along the sacred body
indulgent transcendental spin.

a ripple



hiding behind
your protective gear
the familiar path

at crossroads I shift, a few
deer scared away in the bushes…

                        &

a mother duck with a duckling
attached in magnetic quad –
an illusion of unity

                        &

transcendent
this world swaying away
ripple by ripple



*Photo was taken in NY Botanical Garden, Bronx.

Crow's prophecy



a wandering crow
its old nest has become
a plum tree       ©Basho(tr. Jane Reichhold)

a burgundy fruit
ah, sweet & soft ...a dream       ©Humbird

oh, wondering crow
its luck brought the growth
of the nest

hidden in a crotch
near the trunk...the best

o, pondering crow
takes wing to top branch
of tall pruned tree

sees silver line netting-
and sets birds free!

whimsical dreams


                                               &
after the rain
three leaves on my car
divine sticker…

                   &
silent night
for feline choir
a dream

                   &
a woman in red
cutoff silhouette
uncertainty

Motivation


He said:
fantasize…
imagine
the obstacle, em-
brace it,
and start
overcome
every edge
angle smart
sharp enough
to show
your fear
anxiety
facet
ready
to pierce
sincerely
showing
the truce…

and when
get frustrated
you have to have
plan to see
where’re you
going, and why…

Impressions


Another day
coffee grind
cup view
shapes…
she’s holding
right  hand
trustfully
on the bark of tree
left hand feels the
rose crystals
in the pocket
what is
behind
not so
important
when wild life
comes close
projecting
her fear
she foresee
his shade
nose catering
air shift
ears…
locators of future
arrived to
check her
decision
two black dogs
she stops
with one word
gesture…
she reads:
“Old coffee grounds
make an excellent
facial
exfoliant…"

I can fall anytime...


I can fall anytime
back in vulnerable
aspartame like
sweet poisoned
gullible frame
of mind
while the door
open yet to step in,
but find it
counter clockwise…
perpetuate
the resistance
to change

Clear memory



the opening in the sky
why is it so familiar?
wide…unknown…wild

abandoned nest
in grey, and dark for season
close to my heart
let’em return back
to find the same neighbors

arching tree trunks
colorful clothes dropped by
the path

more is less



healing in
words of blessings
warms thus far…
more is less
to express
infinite
cry of seagull
near
ferry car

milestone


milestone of tomorrow
in today small steps
around the pond
snowflakes or sleet
crows in the midst of unknown

Dare



Secret of colors
under white blanket
winter stairway
dare to ascend blue sky
dive in majestical plain

suppressed emotions
feel again

GPS within
give part of yourself
joy, the beauty of sharing
