    The divine smile-
    lights and shades
    on the Buddha' face

    what exactly is a scale cloud?

    two cats
    in the clouds
    in the sky in the window

    below the giant
    sleeping buddha
    the golden cat yawns

    against the buddha

    pounding rain
    splintered oak's limb ...
    flaccid on the cold black asphalt

    autumn scale clouds
    gulls hang over shimmers
    in the channel

    rooster, no roosters cry
    cross mirrored lake
    one, no two silhouettes
