reflected in the lake
  another city

    In the depth of the lake
    the moon and the morningstar
    die out little by little

    cool early morn -
    swooooosh of a car
    with each click of the sprocket

    spring morning
    the florist raises
    the steel shutter

    alpine lake:
    the sky reflected
    on his water

    A city silenced
    beautifully captured
    quiet in the lake


    Enjoying the mood and clarity of your 'ku...this one today as well as your other contributions. Nice work!

    mirrored
    in her coffee, another
    sleepless night

    spring dusk
    distant streetlights
    turn on

    Hi Betty,
    I like so much your ku. Very very beauty in its simpleness.
    Thank you...

    early morning
    in the trees
    a chorus of birds

    honeysuckle
    a cloud of gnats drifts
    over the pond
