Bad Neighbourhood - PoemThe cold claws of winter
Hang from eaves.
And indolent snow
dreams on its stony bed.
The air is a frigid snarl.
A hoodlum leaning on the gatepost of Spring
And i am afraid to go out of my door.
Afraid, even though
That wonderful blue sky,
That vast siren seductress of air
Whispers sweet flower scented lies
Into my ear
Like a lover with a knife.
Leaf BringersA gathering of birds
In the late winter tree.
Each one a leaf,
Each beak an invocation
Of the spring to come.
They mark each bough with magic
Then to the next, move on.
Night's Dark HandNight's dark hand
Carries the lantern moon
Across the sky.
Beginning low then reaching high.
Then low once more to disappear
Beneath the world.
And sleep with the sun
Untill the morning's yawn is unfurled.
Wind Mountain - Original PoemI climbed Wind mountain to look for the spirits
But found none.
Perhaps they were watching from behind a rock
Or crouching in the branches of a tall tree.
Perhaps they were just shadows waiting to be recognized.
I searched for them, I searched all around
But the breeze was strong that day,
It blew the world into my eyes and i was blinded.
So I took up my flute and played a tune
But the breeze swept my song into the river,
It carried it away and i was silent.
Wind mountain kept its secrets,
My flute was empty
And my eyes were full,
So i followed these feet back to the world of men
Where we see only branches and rocks.
Searching For Tranquility - (A sequence of poems)The stones on the ground are silent
The shadows serene.
But my mind is a hurricane,
My body a rickety foundation that will not hold.
Already i see another moment hurtling towards me
And the way becomes difficult.
Searching For Tranquility (A sequence of poems)How easily
A sudden breeze stirs the fallen leaf,
An opened door lifts the settled dust mote.
The rivers current moves a pebble,
Or a single thought disturbs the quiet mind.
Be still as a tree in Autumn.
Silent as the table in an empty room.
Steady as a riverbed.
Find tranquility at the centre of chaos
And all will be well.
