‘moment’ (troiku)

sun enlightens bricks
bouncing off windows
sitting in stillness

sun enlightens bricks
whispering sweet nothings
breeze saunters by

bouncing off windows
as hands dutifully march
mind your eyes

sitting in stillness
ingesting each moment
buzz of fly

‘cherry tree’ (troiku)

cherry tree
slender frame
blown by wind

cherry tree
standing tall
watchman of house

slender frame
stretching out
desperate for heaven

blown by wind
battered by gale
resisting arrest

‘Yellow Pebbles’ (troiku)

DSCF5793DSCF5793

walking down this path
careful not to step on cracks
look at that black cat

walking down this path
life’s journey on a crescent
cow jumps over moon

careful not to step on cracks
as pressure points expose face
underneath the cake

look at that black cat
yellow pebbles highlight night
assailant escapes
