Lights dance on the sea, Sand martins leave their burrows – Washed-up jellyfish.

Transformation:

The smell of damp leaves, Where the dew rests in shadow – A leaf still green, falls.

Lifeblood:

The sun sets blood-red, At a sharp bend in the road – Peony flowers.

Romance:

  Smell of earth and grass, Under downy willow buds – The softest pillow.

Mortality (for Ash Wednesday)

  Ashes in the grate, The last flames dying away – With a puff of smoke.

Invitation:

A distant church bell, Sends out its invitation – Through the falling leaves.

The Cycle Of Life.

Specks of light falling, At my feet, white frost glistens –  Evaporating.
