A Tanka In Autumn

A TANKA IN AUTUMN

Pox on verbiage
All these dragooned syllables
Listen closely as
The sound of a falling leaf
Declares “nothing to declare”

Life Doubled: Senryu

LIFE DOUBLED

These shaded feelings
Why did we not express them?
Words cannot describe

Mahakasyapa

MAHAKASYAPA

Not a word spoken
“Pick up flower, subtle smile”
Message clear enough

Open Secret

OPEN SECRET

Droplets a-sparkle
Wink in the sudden sunshine
Nothing more to say

Spellmeister II

SPELLMEISTER II

Exhausted
Lets go words
Lets go all images

In vivid silence
String quartets
Sprout pirouettes

Free of intent
Dances and teases
Patterns born of chaos

Waterfall: Shadorma

WATERFALL

We so like
To stop, close these eyes
Stay stock-still
Motionless
Lean into the sound until
Eyes are forgotten

Attention

ATTENTION

Seeking silence found
Outside, inside, not silence
But music instead

Intuition Tuition

INTUITION TUITION

Still the mind chatter
Pay attention and listen
Silence speaks volumes

Sweet Nothings

SWEET NOTHINGS

In soft silent snowflakes
The Great swirls all around us
Whispering sweet nothings
Intended for no ears but those
Of all these ancient trees
And – if I attend – mine

Leave Your Thoughts

LEAVE YOUR THOUGHTS

I left my thoughts
My thoughts left me

My thoughts departed
While I. left remained

Alone in an aloneness
Awaiting fresh thoughts
