along the power line
a black contrail

    winter, predawn
    brilliant star rising above the pines *
    a nasa launch

    clear and cold
    the divorce attorney
    snaps his briefcase

    huffing and puffing
    after a winter run--
    my frozen breath

    the bend
    her smile lost
    in the warm goodbye

    out at sea
    seaching for her mate--
    beyond the sunset

    summer rains
    drenched children
    cawing crows

    autumn breeze
    distant bird-songs
    bring giant clouds

    winter night
    storm brews sky~
    tuberose fragrance~

    spring dawn~
    butterflies dragonflies
    parrots sparrows bees
    dance fusion~

    empty eagles' nests
