At Once Twice Seen

water lily’s
doppelgänger
pierces the pond

The Pond Opened For Song

opening ceremony
the joyful croaking chorus
of peepers peeping

The Song Of Silence

deep in the woods
on the frozen vernal pond
the music played on

Atop The Rock

alone
while together
with everything

First One Bloom Then…


like ripples on a pond
the blooms go on and on

The Maple’s Ghost


floated by
gracefully entering
the next dimension

Secrets


winter gathers
at the pond’s edge
hiding cold amongst the reeds

The Trees Abstracted


water offers
a reflective reminder
of life’s fragile fluidity

Time Enough


day moved slow
as cow and ducks
listened to the grass grow

Perceptions


reflective mood
each perspective
a new understanding

Ancients


these limbs embrace
each season’s passage
cradling the transient now

Distillation


winter’s gift
distilled down
into the sky blue pond
