Another joy

Jubilant voices,
laughter of season
silenced in the soft beam,

you and I exchange
smile in subdued
passion of old couple,

tears of desolation brief,
I praise your drawing
on the steel grey water,
you chuckle at me dancing
waving my bare arms,

wishing the best for our
friends, we draw and
dance more in the
bleak winter days.

snowed on rock


Enduring dry chill
like soldier, when
point of regress, she
came to imbue idea,
her methodical journey
to rise, excellent for

life. I watch as she
slowly vanishes,
game of time,
law of tyrant;
some efforts to hold
is gripping onto wind.
Farewell, my friend,
see you in spring mist.

Winter Lake


Retreat and ponder
the surge from highland,
venture up the hill where
the days of longing,
curiosity mirrored,
youthful fantasy
evaporated, reach for

the sky, wave with envy
at the birds. Comply to
the time of withdrawal,
grateful to the season for
the opportunity. Ceaseless
desire, watch the land ling
grow, wither,

wait for next swell–glee!
