I waited for

weekly photo challenge: on the move

AFTERNOON

The afternoon swam by

like a giant fish

with red translucent scales.

In its stillness

the palm trees were copper

and coconuts round

with the clanging of a gong; my eyes

were sweetened

in the orange sifting of oboes.

                                       ~Wang Phui Nam (1935-)*

weekly photo challenge: spring

So very still, even

cherry blossoms are not stirred

by the temple bell

A nipping wind!

tearing into the rock,

the voice of water.

if seen by day

a firefly

is just a red-necked bug

You will ask, awake

in autumn night.
