Palm Leaves   4 comments

As the palms sway
In a dance of their own
The leaves whisper
In anticipation of stories
Brought by the wind
From faraway lands
To water the nuts
With fulfilling tales

-Okunbo Turner

Afternoon Bridge   2 comments

Peach light bathes the air,
encouraging the corners of a genuine smile.
Sweet air taps you on the shoulder and 
tousles wisps of hair.

This childlike mood,
that sees every tulip bloom
 and hears the song of each auburn-bellied bird,
it is lovely.

We are made for these moments.
We are made for these moods.
This afternoon, it is made for us.

Autumn Trees   5 comments

“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter.
Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”

-Andrew Wyeth

Evening Mountain   Leave a comment

“All the birds have flown up and gone;
 A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other – 
Only the mountain and I”.

– Li Po

Floating Flowers   Leave a comment

Do not pity the flower that flies off
Grieve for the western garden
It fallen red already beyond mending
Now, after the morning rain
What’s left?
A pond full of broken duckweed
If the tree parts of spring
two turn to dust
One to the flowing water
Look –
These are not catkins
Bud the drop after drop of parted lover’s tears.
-Shui lung yin
