Modern Love LXX

Modern Love LXX

First chill of autumn
summer has
fallen out of love

cold wind descends
where yesterday
geraniums smiled

autumn breeze
flowers tremble
like aching hearts
winter is launched
a piece of memory -
green tea cermony!

Chilled autumn rain
marigolds dance
upon the meadow

Two cats dart
upon the last grass
of departing summer

cool fall evening
filling black sky
vast empty eternity

frogs laughter
points the way
to lonely saltmarsh

again that ancient
taste of freshly
broken heart

first autumn chill
under burning leaves
the necks of swans

morning prayers
mists lift free
from ocean waves

sun filled glass
fresh peaches taste
gong of morning

red hibiscus opens
in response
to warm stare

two seagull lovers
dip and soar
namaste to summer

morning dove sails
pointing at sky
liquid blue coos

full suspended sun
reflected on water
creating some ocean

buddha moon
toothless grin smile
window hinges
chamomile blossoms
entire garden
bottom dregs of cup

zazen morning twilight
crack in split mind
in exactly the right place

summer's footprint
in deep winter snow
leads to spring

to find no one
there, here!

sad snowman
calmly awaiting
springs agony

First autumn chill
summer has
fallen out of love

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
