Take heed where

Out of the blue

Slides a clear

Frozen flue,

Weeping ice

Telling you

That more change

Is in queue.

Sufficient Space

Side by side

Close together

They won’t really

Worry whether

There is sufficient

Personal space,

Just scoot a bit

And make a place

So this bed

Can rest another

Weary head.

Morning Manners

One cannot head to pasture

On a fine, chilly morn

Without checking to see if

One’s mane’s properly adorned.

Choo-Choo

You can captain a boat

Drive a car

Pilot planes,

But there’s nothing quite like

Driving this

Mini-train.

Behind Closed Doors

Decades shut

Behind closed shores

What old stories

Had you told

Of not so distant

Wars?

Weathered by

Time and lore

What future resides

Behind Cuba’s

Sealed doors?

From shade onto sunlight

From old bricks

To plastered walls,

She gazed out

To the terrace

And a horizon

Pregnant with

Potential

Rainfall.

Deep in ocean

She greets you

With palms pressed

In hello,

As you marvel

The glory

Of rocks carved

By time’s flow,

And the riches

Half-hidden

In turquoise waters

Below.

 

Note: “Sawatdi-kah” is the female form (said by females) of Thai greeting, often along with a “Wai” (a slight bow with palms pressed together).

All That Shines

All that shines

In the glitter

Of candles lit,

Stories told,

Holds the breath

Spent in prayer

O’er Gods

Dressed in gold.

Up in mountains

Down valleys

‘Midst small villages

Near towns,

Seedlings

Rise

From the water

Neath bent backs

Patient hands

Toward the sun.

Big As The Sky

Under big sky

Amid the sea

Big Buddha shows

The way to be

As people flock

Foreign and Thai

To pray for poise

In Wat Phra Yai.
