Sunday rain
a shadow of the mountain
behind mist

    winter greenery -
    shadowy raptor, swoops through the spruce


    winter greek wedding
    dancing in circles ...
    lovely breast


    whispering breeze
    dark, cold, and blustery -
    birds with ruffled feathers *

    * thanks marjo

    nice gillena,

    mine to complement;

    day storm
    the rain hides
    half the mount

    After the Sunday rain
    a triumphal arch above the mountain:
    the rainbow

    rainy monday
    slow moving, commuter traffic --
    squeaky wipers
