Under a spring moon
sailboats riding at anchor
that early morning

Morning stillness

Morning stillness
under a bright, spring moon
a small lake shimmers

first dawn of spring

first dawn of spring
horizon blushes pink
I resume my walk

spring moon

sheltering waters
reflect the spring moon
to the shore

pink bear cub rescued, Japan

A pink bear cub ?
her cries attract rescuers
caution: she's hungry

a four month old baby girl was found by rescuers. When found, she looked just fine; cute as button in her pink bear cub pjs.

Salty tears

salty tears return
to the sea
our tired, dry eyes


flutter of butterflies
clang of temple bells

Japan Quake

the ground gives way
and sea rushes in

bloody feathers

bloody feathers
found in a small clump
owl's work

Vuelta al parque

Parasols in hand
they take their walks

Winter's Grip

no forcing spring from
winter's grip this time
sleet, cold rain, and snow

Bessie Smith

I ain't good lookin'
-- so Bessie once said
angel child of blues

Spring flowers

Early spring flowers
of their poetry

Urban spring

Cracks on a sidewalk
hidden by trash, grass and weeds
urban spring
