A Monk's Robes

Deaf, dumb and blind,
I stop to marvel at
Wind in the pine tree.

Oolong Tea

Steeping spring water
The agony of the leaves
Golden liquor.

Great Horned Owl

Winter's night
An owl's plaintive hooting
Echoes through still air.

With flowing motion
The graceful Purple Martin,
Catches a mosquito!

California Quail

A bevy of quail,
Startled by my foot steps,
Flushing into flight.
