Spring Poems

Sought purpose of my
Winter's suffering journey
Found with Spring blossoms!
March 19/00


The clear silver pool
Refreshing my soul drinking
Deep Basho's haiku
March 19/00


Sky of moonlit clouds
Damp sweet smell of Spring arrived
Heart longing for snow!
March 22/00


Bright early Spring morn
Heavy with past ponderings
Shrill cry Redwing's song!
March 23/00


Mind turning over
Rotten cedar log surprised
My soul hiding there!
March 23/00


Heart's desired fulfilled
Stormy, Wintery Spring day
All covered with snow!
March 29/00


Time flows quiet through
These seventeen syllables
Gently lapping waves
March 30/00


Koan
No way out
That is the way out
April 11/00


Long I wait this Spring
By the old wise Willow tree
For the crocuses
April 13/00


Little Chickadee
Unafraid from branch to branch
Talking so to me!
April 20/00
