May – week 4

woodland walk ~

trees tiger~striped

in golden sunrise


mist on the mirror

this path we walk…

my fingers trace

a memory of bluebells

and wild garlic


just for a moment

the world is softened

by dreams ~

a baby bird

sleeps in the lilacs


in a blue dress

blowing dandelion clocks,

summer sky…

we pick cotton daydreams

from passing clouds


even the smallest

barest tree

can hold

its boughs

out to a woodpecker


in sumi-e ink

the flow of a moment

scarlet and black

two woodpeckers

and a clean sheet of sky


why can’t it always

be this simple?..

a treecreeper


up a tree


red peony…

wiping if only

from my lips
