Penumbra

A sprinkle of stars
burn into nightfall, veiling
the moon's penumbra.

Waltzing

His ashes dust hills,
feeding wildflowers, waltzing
with wild winter wind.

Shadow

In between shadows,
moonlight illuminates cats
fighting on spring grass.

Filigrees

Petal filigrees
press stencil 
patterns on snow,
echoing full bloom.

Sunset

Atlantic waves slice
the sun in half, a semi-
circle melting.

Amber Moon

Amber Moon

Above the city,
light polluted night leaks
amber into the moon.

Amber

Oriental lily
stains the wings
of a white butterfly,
amber.

Web

In the blossom tree
a crystal-spun web is
ignited by sunrise.

Stars

Stars shine at twilight.
Confetti sprinkled sky
echoes in my eyes.

Haiku

Icicles tinkle

on a sleeping blossom tree

twinkling in the sun.

Haiku

Hanging from the bough,

a solitary ice strand

bathes in dawning glow.

Haiku

Badger

Snowflakes rest upon
the old badger, blanketing
sleeping, open eyes.

Unborn

Unborn

What would you wish for
as you blew out twelve candles,
my unborn seedling.
