Narcissus ( Tanka )

31 Dec

narcissus

A beautiful man

led to a pool of water

dies in his own arms

pity he could love no one

as much as he loved himself

awaiting spring’s gentle kiss

after winter’s sleep

In barren gardens

under winter’s moonlit sky

creatures leave footprints

Our greatest desire

on this last day of winter

some early spring blooms

Dreams

26 Dec

In my dream

I sit beneath the bodhi tree

and search for my reason for being

I fear that somehow I have lost it

A lifetime of  being wife, mother, friend

although certainly rewarding

has also led me to realize

that I have forgotten who I am

perhaps this is all I was ever meant to be

but I can’t help but feel

that somehow there is a secret

and I must search for it…

Millionaire as he is :

 

They think he’s not rich

he has no coin in pocket

his children love him

The late winter snow

 

with the sun’s warming embrace

 

become magic wands
