On the hydrangeas

the weight of the morning sun

the evening sun


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


as the rainbow
will soon fade
do not all who witness it
hold their loves more tenderly
..(C)2012Spiros Zafiris
..channeled; spirit Harmony


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
the old school  -
nature gobbles the playground
bindweed picks the lock
