Chinook

SpringThaw

First spring gust surges
Wind’s wake betrays thaw’s approach
Honking Vee’s flying
Harbingers of equinox
Efflorescent explosion.

I choose to write a Tanka.

Aspiration

 

RedYellowCloudsSky

Streaking sky grey
Fleecy clouds inspire
/Imagination/
Wondrous visions
Misty blue hills rising
Decorating the horizon
Vistas expanding
Worlds mysterious
/Numberless/
Dreaming of impossibilities
Potentialities expanding
/Unlimited/
Becoming reality
Woolgathering
Frees the spirit
Profits your soul.

Abiding

winterfield furrows

Fallow lies the furrowed earth
Entombed by bitter bleakness
Winter, that inhospitable season
Waiting patiently
Seasons cycling
Spring’s rebirth
Exuberant verdant explosion
Flora splitting the soil
Wild geese scything the sky
Songbirds caroling joyfully
Fountaining hope
Resurrection of the soul.

Revenant

dracula

“Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!”
Dracula
Bram Stoker

Darkness is my cloak /Wrap it tight/
Shielding every movement
Bathed by the light of the new moon
Howling of the wolves /Prelude/
Minutes of terror
My presence wrecks
Stealthily I creep
Upon my prey
Oblivious in their innocence
Hot red blood /Beckoning/
Fast beating hearts /Throbbing/
Drawing me in
I open my mouth wide /Strike/
My fangs dig deep /Feast/
Limp bodies /Paley waxen/
Take to wing
Soaring through the skies
Seeking /Ever seeking/
I revel in everything I am
/Creature of the night/
Predator /Slayer/
Vampire!

Transcendence

buddanirvana

All of the passions that whip your body
All of the silent hopes contained within your beating heart
All of the fears lurking deep within your spirit
All of the dreams springing forth in full glory from your mind
All of these things are dross
Nothing more than charred silhouettes
Reminders of ephemeral form
Only the soul remains
Echoing down the endless vaults of eternity.
