winter sunset

our life in this world –

to what shall i compare it?

it’s like an echo

resounding through the mountains

and off into the empty sky

end of semester, winter meditation

everything that was
has vanished from my aged heart
leaving not a trace

winter, to see every cherry tree

IMG_4817su

i’d like to divide
myself in order to see,
among these mountains,
each and every flower
of every cherry tree.

winter sun, end of semester

Coming, going, the waterfowl
Leaves not a trace.
Nor does it need a guide

invisible snow, the path

IMG_4832u-720x480

the path is hidden
by snow,
invisible,
but thoughts of you
lead me onward.

nobody told the flowers to come up nobody
will ask them to leave when spring’s gone

oh moon – if we
should put a handle to you
what a fan you’d be

coolness
exactly as a pine in the fields
the shape of a branch

winter meditation

IMG_4444us

everything must end
thus the day tries to begin/with the morning bell
but the long night remains/empty moon still in the sky
