On the hydrangeas

the weight of the morning sun

the evening sun



the years
come and goes
even without me

leaves change colours
forced by the summer
I see you Autumm

in morning sunlight
web glittering and carrying
a spider’s journey
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 is
once more, we're sending
youngsters for more
..Fri. May 3, 2013..(C)2013 Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Ram

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


pond fishing
one leg invades
the moon
(C)2012 Spiros Zafiris


these maples stand guard
oops, a fallen leaf!
..(C)2012 Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Ram

green pond surface
duck track
visible past

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


distant thunder...
cautiously homeward
we tread
..(C)2012 Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Ram
the sound of loneliness:
curlew on the moor


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
...drooping rose heads
