dark cloud for a cowl
the moon peers out warily
the tempest runs wild

watching the half-moon’s transit

battle axe   keen blade,
arcing bright through cloudless sky
to be bested by dawn

this morning’s lesson

clouds like a gray shroud
swaddle the blue sky dawning…
leaves stir in silence

standing on the deck round midnight

brightening… fading…
fireflies – oh fireflies, green eyes
of this starless night

looking into the garden at night

dark shadows of trees…
from a high branch the full moon hangs
fruit of wakefulness

night storm

bushes: stooped shadows—
FLASH, as from a camera—
far off thunder, rain

the impossible dream

like hands, Spring leaves reach
for the moon haloed in mist:
unobtainable
