beach diamonds
a new day crystallized
in sunny surf foam               © Jane Reichhold

birds darting out of waves length
shadows bounding alongside

flute melodies
across green ocean waves
spring meadows                                 © Jane Reichholdpoem

butterflies rise together
forming rainbow of color

cold spring breeze
makes the cherry blossom shiver
one heartbeat long               © Chèvrefeuille

girl reaches for lost balloon
I hold my breath, hoping

The wind from Mt. Fuji
I put it on the fan.

droning music of insects
creates sleepy afternoon

watch birth and death:
the lotus has already
opened its flower.                      © Soseki Natsume (Tr. Soiku Shigematsu)

new ducklings approach water
startled by splashing frogs

dervishes whirling
– seeking a higher consciousness
third eye opens                                      © Chèvrefeuille

blowing one more dandelion
into the amber sunset
