Miscellaneous Sequence

 

 

White swirling snowflakes
fill the sky in silent dance.
Such pristine beauty
soon blackens with ash and soot
in this passing, what remains?

Paul


The old year passes
in deep fog at nightfall;
such ghostly lights--
people walking silently,
where from? where to?

Richard


Ringing in the new,
the neighbor bangs a pot;
midnight--
after kissing we turn
back to beckoning dreams.

Don


So deep, this pot
Where drops drum on the bottom;
This parting--
Its direction as uncertain
As winter's rain-swollen stream.

Donna


Walking slowly
across a narrow bay--
the whiteness!
mind suddenly light
after all the dark.

Jari


Snow peak
Hidden in white clouds--
Mount Fuji rises
In my dream, becoming a dove
With outstretched wings.

Sarah


Hidden in the snow,
the distant mountain peak
only a memory--
when will the azaleas
so brightly bloom again?

Richard


Only a memory;
a year has passed.
Joys and sorrows,
a mingling of them both
hold a hostage heart.

Helen


Crisscrossing
In the snow, footprints
Of crows--
How much they resemble
The crackling of ice.

Sarah


All the crows have flown,
bare limbs are all that remain
in an empty sky--
they follow a single path,
but never leave a trace.
