On the hydrangeas

the weight of the morning sun

the evening sun


---Otsuyu


thunderstorm
Basho's frog jumps out
of the old pond


snowfall in June --
honeysuckle roses

Standing in the mist
of a chestnut tree petals
conclusion: its summer

..balloons

releasing
balloons is
rewarding
once more, we're sending
youngsters for more

Magnolia
on my neighbor's land
flourish impudent

The water drop
that hit the pond
erupt the silence


eyes closed
the roar of a waterfall
inside of me


vault of the pine-branched heavens I open

..wet

pond fishing
one leg invades
the moon

..oops

skyward...
these maples stand guard
oops, a fallen leaf!

green pond surface
duck track
visible past

 -
dammens
grønne overflade
spor efter ænder
fortidens minder


crane fly in the web
sucked dry:
wings, legs, body, one flat line
murmuring river:
a poet listened to
every day

..cautious

distant thunder...
cautiously homeward
we tread
~~

~~
suddenly
the sound of loneliness:
curlew on the moor

..instruments

on the beach,
they discovered string sections
on each other's toes
sumptuous sonatas became
their joined lips too...summer
~~
..(C)2012 Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Ram
~~
the old gardener
dozing
...drooping rose heads

..inasmuch

inasmuch
as the rainbow
will soon fade
do not all who witness it
hold their loves more tenderly

Full circle
cheerfully butterflies playing
making it happen

pulsing cicadas
pull me into their rhythm
a hammock of sound

still pond
in the cool of the day
reflecting Eden
