Haiku

perched on a boulder

my pores inhale the sun’s rays

massaged by the wind

 

high altitude view

front row seat in the azure

nebulous parade

 

humming constantly

giving positive ions

humidifall flows

 

young soulmates unite

forging abundance of life

spirits soar freely

to Jeannie and Patrice Pasturel

 

daily scampering

ever questing for vittles

wily fox appears

 

sunning on a rock

chipmunk nibbling on my straw hat

beady eyes emerge

  

temporal pauses

luxury of time and space

abundance prevails

 

foggy day rollup

valley floor evaporates

warm in my cocoon

 

arc of potential

kinetically caressing

fine strands of catgut

  

early morning fog

skulking silhouette of fox

slumbering hound dog

 

aurora dawn fog

reynardian silhouette

slumbering hound dog

  

celebrating breath

abundance of oxygen

we respire and thrive

  

rush hour post sunrise

dozen propellers vying

hummingbird highway

  

equipoise achieved

axis perfectly aligned

namaste autumn

 

moonshadow chasing

inquisitively questing

journeying within

 

Lady of the Lake

rising at dawn on the stone

perched above the sword

 

frosty aspen leaves

cascading towards the ground

perceptible thump

 

tugging, careening

olfactory overload

private eye canid

 

questa o quella?

novelty trumps familiar

neophilia

 

shadows overhead

low flying hawks plundering

carrion questing

 

incessant prancing

paws atop icy tarmac

barn sour ebullience

 

the theme is itself

variations unfolding

indexically

 

aural autism

ensues in pursuit of squirrel

All Senses Reboot!

 

stuck in neutral gear

logistical dominoes

teeter and balance

 

ecstasy unleashed

raising radiant prisms

arcing and sparking

 

basking in sunlight

ample southern exposure

continent traversed

 

goddess origins

extant in apple orchard

ubiquitously

 

aromatic jog

alongside marsh at low tide

avian armies

 

auras overlap

lengthy shadows intertwine

strangers we remain

 

wind and waves massage

sensory undulations

urging and purging

 

 

fresh virgin footsteps

forward trudging and crunching

future white and bright

 

 

bouncing on powder

tantalizing fox below

gleaming paradise

 

 

Mercury plunging

Pisces sliver far from full

fathom five below

 

 

styrofoam snowflakes

pitter-pattering pell-mell

hot chocolate reward

 

 

invigorating

icy cotton bombarding

powder puff trekking

 

 

icicle daggers

plunging, thumping onto roof

avalanche resounds

 

 

whistling and whirling

enveloped by elements

earth heart energy

 

 

howling discotheque

All Hail Thunder & Lightning!

soothing lullaby

 

 

September springtime

streams rush in sonic surround

earthworms everywhere

 

 

retracing footsteps

time and space resonances

golden memories

 

 

clinking spoon on glass

Pavlovian instincts fire

dishwashing duty

 

woodpecker pulses

aspiring fir trees shelter

spiraling leaves fall

 

serene forest path

nurturing tranquillity

seize the fermata

 

Thursday morning, November 10, 2016 at 8500 feet

yoga al fresco

pines silhouette deep azure

rabbits scampering

chorus of canines

wending and meandering

chewing icy slush

rabbit hunt in fog

snorting, sniffing, yodeling

blind boulder master
