December 2015

First full moon on Christmas Day since 1977, clouds breaking a little here and there…

Stars blink in dark gaps.
Full moon rising in the east,
silver-lining clouds.

************************************

Watching crows, leaving food for them so that I can sketch them, not as simple as it sounds…

Bold crows hesitate,
reconnoitre carefully,
choose the apt moment.

*************************************

Sodden leaves everywhere, clogging drains, filling holes, soaking up puddles, deadly…

Layers of wet leaves
carpet, like dark snow, the path.
Cushioning footfall.

**************************************

A quiet walk in the woods: perfect pheasant camouflage among the fallen leaves puts the heart sideways in me…

Dead leaves come to life,
pheasants explode from Nowhere,
loudly disappear.
