Morning Walk

                         Unrisen moon,
                         eerie pearlescent sky -
                         stars, but barely.

                         Before the haar clears -
                         a magnolia blossom

                         the sole morning star.

                         Shafts of light through boughs,
                         shining out from fallen stars -
                         wood anemones.

Une hirondelle a fait le printemps...

                         Red, white, and blue of
                         patriotic homecoming -
                         the first barn swallow.

                         On an azure ground,
                         the flicks of an artist's brush -
                         swallows on the wing.

                         Staring at the sky,
                         spots swimming before my eyes -
                         childhood memories.
