between the wind chimes

    breeze stirs bamboo chimes
    orchestrating music for
    dancing whirligig

    food for thought:

    night rain
    of the windchime's jingle ~
    punctuated by the thunder


    falling tears
    dried by the wintry breeze -
    twin trails end on her cheeks
    one, in spring
    always out of season ...
    the other, in winter

    birds stir
    night sky splits
    illuminating earth

    curb side white water
    downpour ending
    puddles at high tide

    furious wind
    metal chimney top
    blown into yard

    death anniversary
    the melancholy peal
    of her windchime

    calm morning...
    a hummingbird
    vibrates the windchimes

    summer night breeze
    between the curtains ...
    neighbor's conversation rides
