Long you have waited
Healing, thinking, waiting months
Chrysalis cocoon



Spirits at her door
Entreat her for just one more
Song they can chorus
With toad croaks and wolves that howl
Those past death can only smile

Summer Night


The sun’s work is through
fireflies flash the end of day
cicadas cackle
heralding the silken night
inviting the moon and stars

the land breeze sleeps now
the sea breeze kisses the trees
scatters the fireflies
rustles stems where butterflies sleep
not disturbing their dreams

it’s time for mating
the cycle of survival
all the tests of life
bring them to the verge of God
guide them to renew the earth
