pale yellow blooms
on the evening primrose ...
I learned
not to open myself
in morning's full light

  a dreamer
with no-one knocking
on my door ...
a monarch butterfly
inside a glass jar

    the river
has no shadow
to call its own,
the leaping shadow of a fish
escapes the hook

My beloved is gone,
gone all the way over
to the other shore
yet I hold myself back
from the shining ferryboat

space J. Zimmerman - USA

  I cover
the bird
for the night
then hide
my own head

    autumn pruning
a cut here, a snip there
the shrub reshaped
      my mirror tells me
      there are no miracles
