over-shadowed by the hills

“The “pseudo-science” technique is very close to the paradox but has a slight difference. This technique demonstrates a distorted view of science – one we think is not true, but has the possibility of being true, perhaps when we understand quantum physics or all become poets. When the “other reality” the author was using is explained, the poem becomes absolutely clear. Again, this is an old Japanese tool that was used to make the poet sound simple and childlike but also to confound the reader.”

buttercups share their golden light –

Morning Haiku and Waka – Meditation – January 31, 2016

sunset Malcesnine_small

here and now
the sound of gravel swishing
a gull cries

golden light
colouring the barren tree
as darkness grows
thoughts like leaves swirl
in the silent wind of time

cooking dinner
cleaning swiss-chard and leeks
stirring the rice
here no past – no future
only veggies and rice

Etched in Sunset – Minute Poem – January 28, 2016

light experiment_small

in the shadows of the gloaming
each line etched
against the lake
in black and white

in the twilight we leave the shore
and lake birds call,
shrilly voicing
their last goodbyes

in this moment of day’s passing
a star rises
to guide our steps
ever homeward
