last rays...
th first cicada sings
his song of love



17th September 2019



early morning...
she sidles up to him
with a smile


16th September 2019

prelude...
only the heaving sigh
of the wind



15th September 2019

high noon...
nothing stirs
but a one-eyed cat



 



14th September 2019

 following birds...
following the scent
of hickory smoke







13th September 2009 

butterfly morning 
all my thoughts hover 
around you



12th September 2019



autumn languor
the soft shadows
of dying roses




11th September 2019



windowsill...
caressing perfection

a touch of moonlight


10th September 2019


ploughing contest...
the farm horse wearing
a scarecrow's hat

bedtime... 
a child and his dog 
rolling in leaves


6th September 2019

runaway the three of us measuring the lake



5th September 2019

Summer's end...
you and I swallow
planning our flight




4th September 2019

between heaven and earth
in the company
of eagles





3rd September 2019

these evenings
with sand between my toes...
sometimes it's easy



2nd September 2019

cool wind...
the scents of summer 
in her hair






1st September 2019

blue moon
how gently you paint the darkness



31st August 2019

autumn mist...
summer slips away
unnoticed

moving day...
all that remains
of our youth


28th August 2019

moonlit moment...
waiting for morning
waiting for bees



27th August 2019

autumn treasure...
soupcons of the sun
freckle the field



 26th August 2019

nightfall
unfazed  by the parting
a heron and his shadow



25th August 2019

hall of mirrors
all the mistakes
on my way to you


24th August 2019

monsoon...
does the rain sound different
to the calf in the womb



22nd August 2019

vin rouge
are the flowers swaying...
or is it me




20th August 2019

afternoon calm
from the tea house
the sound of laughter

wild wind...
once again this impulse
to fly
