a silent golden glow…

A dandelion inquired,

“Do you like butter?”

dandelion (3) dandelion (2)A silent golden glow…

was her chin’s response.

a flower at a traveler’s inn

Overtaken by darkness

I will lodge under

the boughs of a tree.

Flowers alone

host me tonight.

                                               ~Taira-no-Tadanori (1144-84)*

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

i dreamt i was a butterfly

Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.*

resting

Taoist regard the reality of imagination and of dreams as no less real than what is usually called realty by contrast.
