there, dolphins!
sun-scorched sea weaves
little white lies.

fox, fox cries
winter light’s shadows
it’s the cat.

amber leaf
dead autumn’s amen
book-pressed.

perched on a gulmohar

VI

A dark bird
pecks at night’s quiet
in a dream.

VII

Climbing sun
anchors the sky
blazing blue.

VIII

Dark skies
melting notes of light
slowing spirit.

IX

A gliding scar interrupts
the might of the sky
blue becomes bluer.

X

Unconquerable
the sun at high noon
till earth turns.

I

Green tea
brewing twilight
in a teapot.

II

Count of bars
in the cage of time
tick tock tick.

III

Among leaves
a wasp’s nest lies
shattered.

IV

Shallow pond
two frogs floating
one alive.

V

Sun rises
dusty light nudges
sleep awake.

Now I see her face,
the old woman, abandoned,
the moon her only companion.

Not an earth-born flower, i
but a star strewn from the sky
burning, dying
light.

Born out of darkness
She glissades across the night
to thunderous applause.

Streaming rainbow
rays of the sun warm
a cup of chai.

On a bed of twigs
Lies a blue tiger butterfly
Its wings are silent.

She lay wed
in a lace of red
to death.

Looking up I see
The belly of a metal beast
Sailing across the sky.

A movement hidden
among the spring leaves
an aqua-tailed parakeet.

A constellation of
vermilion stars, green clouds
Geraniums in bloom.

The hot blue sky
Takes a deep grey breath
Exhales a rainstorm.
