Rustling Leaves Dancing


rustling leaves dancing
light breeze brushing rosy cheeks
young hearts aflutter
 (c) Kaykuala

a spunky crowd of children
racing to the finish line
                                                                                                      ( WS )


For Carpe Diem Tan Renga – rustling leaves dancing

Tickling Ivories


tickling ivories
scintillating music sound
filling the inner soul                               (Carol)

crickets play a moonlight song
lulling wild hearts to sleep                             (WS)


For Carpe Diem Tan Renga – tickling ivories

Crossing the Footbridge

crossing the footbridge
a sound that comes unbidden …
my wild beating heart                               (Lolly Williams)

a hawk and her fledgling….
a field mouse and her babes                             (WS)


For Carpe Diem Tan Renga – crossing the  footbridge

A Yearning



still roaming the inky darkness
of an immeasurable,unknowable landscape,

a soul sheeted in ice, searches cobbled sidewalks,
rock-strewn country roads and remote pebbled shores
for a safe passageway

like a moth bending closer, closer
body, soul, essence lured to the fire
that warms and melts frozen heart sounds
these flames consume the remnants
of the restless child,
massaging the clay of resistance
softening and molding it
eroding a foolish need to escape the stillness

it seems a simple task
and yet……..
when is the heart ever ready
to embrace the kiln of eternity,
that wild yearning to awaken
to the holy breath of god?
