Zen:

Through a round window, Beside a comforting fire – A man drinking tea.

Reflected glory:

Flood waters glisten, Purple sheen on a rook’s back – Apples slowly rot.

Warmth:

The fog has lifted, The frost has released its grip – And softened the grass.

Balance:

Frost on the common, A thin strip of mist hanging – In the breathless dawn.

When conditions are right:

Fresh, early blossom, Cannot wait for longer days –   The moment is seized.

Innocence:

A bare apple tree, Its fruit piled up below – A perfect circle.

Perception:

In my city flat, Cold winds howl around the walls –  In my mountain hut.

Optimism:

A black-headed gull, Entering summer plumage – Ahead of the game.

Hiding:

Huge clouds block the sun, The light is suddenly gone – And then, a rainbow.

Drama:

A wild storm blows in, Pounding hail drowns out all sound – Until the thunder.
