a gypsy wind
strumming halyards
in the marina
we dance by the light
of a tambourine moon

  a white crane soaring
above a simple pine bow …
how easily
she casts aside my gift
of concentrated effort

    I will not answer
your simplest
it’s hard to judge
a wilting rose

a jaundiced moon
looks down upon me tonight ...
when will I
stop comparing myself
to the others?

  walking along
a disused railway line
the memory
of a past life
tied to the tracks

    across the valley
New Year fireworks boom –
here, in the stillness
an owl hoots softly four times
and then again, and again
