Spring Breeze

To celebrate the changing of the season, I have been collaborating with Rose van Son, Gary Colombo De Piazzi and Meryl Manoy on a Spring Junicho. Here’s our offering to the new season…

spring breeze
we raise a kite
into the sound

(GN)

*

hands on my face
the sun’s rays

(RVS)

*

the flush
on her cheek
first kiss

(GCD)

*

a bee caresses
the rose blossom

(MM)

*

dawn light
I slip between
two waves

(GN)

*

a shell on the beach
unknown

(RVS)

*

butterfly
its last spiral
to the ground

(GCD)

*

leaves fall
and the forest catches fire

(MM)

*

yellow bursts
from the crocus bulb
washing day

(GN)

*

season’s end
marmalade jars fill the bench

(RVS)

*
through the glass
the sun’s orange glow
traps a moth

(GCD)

*

higher still
clouds scud a waning moon

(MM)
