Await, silent ruins,
tales a thousand years untold,
Can we learn their message?

*

The circle of life,
can we find its true meaning?
It waits unknown.

*

A dark winter’s night,
A scene of chilling silence
but for one songbird

*

Deep prints in the snow
who goes that mystery soul?
Then rabbit runs on.

*

Have we destiny?
Our humility must guide,
Then it is revealed.

*

Life flows as the wind,
Our choices, our paths
determine our flight.

*

A trip’s progression
in each moment’s transcendence,
arrival fulfilled.

*

Mouse sleeps in snow’s depths,
calm comes from resignation.
Dare we ask for more?

*

A Crow’s leg broken,
its fate has been determined,
Is it not the way?

*

Sakura greets all,
sounds emerge, chicks in their nest,
Lessons of eternal change.

*

Purple cascades seen
a ubiquitous lesson
Wisteria knows.

*

Moon appears freed of clouds,
Does is not appear to all?
Difference sameness.

*

Crystalline raindrops
umbrellas to shield the damp,
Forest scenes alight.

*

Waves presence announced
always same, yet different,
Could it be otherwise?

*

Tell me, what brings change?
The storm arrives born from calm,
wisdom follows suit.

*

Winter birds survive
following paths from the past,
Do we know our place?

*

Centipede recoils,
seeks inspiration where found,
Know when to reflect.

*

Those with a pure heart,
joy follows like a shadow
Does one need seek more?

*

Ancient lost shoreline
bound in quiet tranquility,
Astral depths of time.

*

Nature knows the laws
transcend eternal struggle,
Find peace where others fail.

*

Grass bends under gales
while the mighty oak falls short,
Adapt, persevere.

*

In present moments,
crisis consumes our being,
Time’s distance brings peace.

*

Fall moonlight reflects,
the quiet bay a mirror
Tranquility rules.

*

Alas long lost dreams,
beleaguered inspirations,
Redemption renewed.
