singing songs of spring,
hidden in the trees,
birds rejoicing.


singing merrily
in holly tree,
hidden among the branches.

Ready to Burst

The sun is shining,
the birds are singing
and magnolia blossom
is ready to burst.
What more could you want?

Holiday Tanka 1

Through the pine forest
the wind swirls, dancing, singing
her own wild music.
The trees sway to the rhythm
of the ancient earthly song.

January Joy 19

Despite the cold
the birds are singing
songs of Spring.

Christmas Carols

As I drive along the road
lustily singing Christmas Carols
I can’t help but wonder
what kind of idiot
the passing motorists
think I am!
