Nature


May-June 2007 039
Turned me inside out
Lush hedgerows, blossoms bursting
Beauty’s soul exposed

Reincarnation


#1

Dead drifted wood

Harboring frost

Dreaming ghost branches

#2

Rising sun warms

Crystal meditation

Awakened water flows

#3

Earth thirst quenched

Knowledge released

 Memories take root

Shaman Song


Medicine woman gathering sap

Amber balm of tree

Trapping Loon’s sad laughter

~ ~ ~

Holy man drumming

Surf pounds island shore

Beating stone prayers

~ ~ ~

Salish hunter singing

Heron watches Eagle’s reflection

Listening to all the drums

Farley’s First Poem


 

The shining leaves

mysterious windy path      

shining grass

dazzling glittering sunshine

 

 (NB.  windy as in winding, not wind blowing)  Farley is 6 years old, and he made this poem up without help – it’s all his own words, stanzas and ideas. His mummy will help him read all comments and feedback.  This photo is one of the lanes that Farley walks on nearly every day.

White feathers sail on blue

like the summer moult on Commons Pond

pillow stuffing for winter angels

Vespers


Oh happy tree, branches raised

painting clouds, you worshipped the day and

waved the sun to bed

Enlightenment by Haiku


 

Ancient journey towards inner peace:

Study life with curiosity, humor and compassion

Share observation in seventeen words.

Pond at Dawn on July 4th


Four ducks, in simultaneous flip

Pure white bellies upon  dark pond surface

Bottoms up in morning salute
