#haiku 31

ripening cherries

waiting for sun and rain

your scent in the air

#haiku 30

Blossoming love

beside the peonies

her cheeks blush

#tanka 33

a time of quiet

I try to reach the place

deep inside

where the young man I once was

still lives carefree untroubled

#tanka 32

something strange

your footsteps in the night

carry questions

that my heart can answer

but that my mind will not

#tanka 31

cast adrift

on lifes stormy seas

my anchor

the hope sustaining me

the faith that binds me

#gogyohka 37

A short breath

of icy air

passed between us

brushing your cheek

freezing a tear

#gogyohka 36

A vision of the night

in shallow shade

a glimpse into something

forbidden

yet desired
