wind jostles the scarecrow
near the heavy-hung cornstalks
                      the summer is spent     (Jessica)

listening ears of corn sigh
anticipating winter

worship on the mount
thin air and carpeted hill
reaching up to god

the fence


pressing dead bodies
against the cyclone fence
zombie hoard

[Well, it's nearly halloween...]

primeval titan
straddles land and sea
fleeting victory

autumn leaves
myriad shades red and gold
begin to fall as snow

                                                                 (Joanne)
 
gentle sounds in forest midst 
descent of jeweled fronds
                                (Joanne, also)

a mausoleum - will there be
a grave named for me

hands on her hips
in silk kimono
mysterious smile
 kissing her lips so red
he knows his life is over

Participation on Carpe Diem has opened my mind to many new ideas and lots of new information....It has prompted me to learn even more on my own about some of our intriguing topics....And I owe this new-found wonder to all my fellow haijun, espec. Chevrefeuille, our gracious host.....

life from the sea



life from the sea
shipwrecked on the sand
                         so many shells     (Cathy Tenzo)

 castaway gingerly wanders 
searching the beach for treasure

Palette of colours
                                      Chrysanthemums bestowing
                                            fragrance everywhere
                                                                       (Atreyee)

 funeral procession has gone
only the perfume lingers

circles



death is not an end
but the seed 
of some other life


djembe circle
vibration of the universe
 my heart skips a beat

new age children
