Seven Springs Ago

Photobucket
 

Seven springs ago
I knelt in awe and wonder
where bright flowers bloomed.
 
Where bright flowers bloomed,
I worshiped as a pilgrim,
seeking holy signs.
 
Seeking holy signs,
I felt as though a feather
had swept clean my soul.

Moon Maiden

Even in clear glass
I cannot see Moon Maiden,
but I catch her scent.

Lady, you are here—
still my ravening hunger
with one vibrant word.

Comely

For want of scarlet,
Sky Maiden dons grey instead—
still she is comely.

Trucked

Photobucket
 

Fruits and vegetables
trucked from irrigated farms—
who will buy today?
 
When you munch mangoes,
mind your manners, my munchkins—
no mindless dribbling!
 
Let your dreams bear fruit—
mangoes, bananas, apples
papayas and plums!

Scissors

Photobucket
 

Shadows in the grass,
do I need to snip you out
with scissors of light?

Menacing

Menacing darkness
needs but one small point of light
to keep it at bay.
