SPARKS LAKE (7/12/19)


Behind me

sheets flapping on a clothesline

Great blue heron.


Butterflies over the water

hundreds, thousands

like high-beam snowflakes.


Stand on liquid

green glass

trout see no reason to flee.

    Peter by the lake Pens haiku on butterflies. Writing moves the earth.

    Green woods, cobalt sky, White clouds, primary colors. Few pastels to paint.

    Monsoons, heavy rain, Clover & moss come alive. Read a book; stay dry.

    Peaches & cherries, Early season Hotchkiss fruit. Corn, chilis to come.

    Walk, hike, trek, ramble, With friends into Swamp Canyon. Elderhaus on foot.

      Oyama-san, you move so effortlessly between arts, between worlds. Stud.
