Cold Breeze

As the cold breeze blows,
It calls to our desires.
As the cold breeze blows,
Our dreams sail on its currents
And drift through seas of starlight.

Thunder and Stone

Thunder and water,
Pounding surf and sitting stone,
But the rock still stands,
Against angry rising tides,
Perfect balance, harmony.


Hilltop Grove

Beneath pepper trees
A flower bends in the breeze
In a hilltop grove.


Thunder and Stone

Thunder and water,
Pounding surf and sitting stone,
But the rock still stands,
Against angry rising tides,
Perfect balance, harmony.


Persimmon Tree

A Persimmon tree,
Heavy with fruit, nearly ripe.
Sweet expectation.


Beneath

The city beneath,

Untold stories intertwined,

The hill with two trees.


Silenced Song

On a hot dry night

I was born by the river

Under milky stars

And a moonless, painted sky.

 

On a hot dry night

A song of running whispers

Ran through the valley

Giving to fields and children.

 

On a hot dry night

The song of life went silent

Under milky stars

Leaving not but bones and dust.

 

On a hot dry night

I walked through the rivers corpse

Under milky stars

I waited for whispered songs,

 

But she laid silent and still.

Poems of the Sage

imageNest of the Moon
Sound of the dry weeds,
Scent of the purple sage . . . Sits.
Rolling hills, deep gorge.
Through spirited paths of green,
Where ghosts dwell and the moon nests.

Sage Smoke
Growing between stones,
 Gray and green.
Touched by fire,
 Thick white smoke billows.

Rise
Chants within white smoke,
 Magic moves in secret ways.
Abalone shell,
 Pale wisps rise and shape a world.
 The dead will speak, now listen. 

Spring
Spring arrives, purple
 Blossoms sprout from gray-green leaves,
 Potential within.

Vision
Meditative state,
 Time stops when the dry weed burns.
The visions reveal,
 Women dance in ecstasy,
 Though I sit alone in thought.
