tripping triplets

in driblets

uncoupled singlets


In yesterday’s sky

Stars twinkled like her eyes

She is alone today



Birds soared along with

Jaunty colorful kites

Arid earth seared



Overhead sun glowed

Perky flowers lifted heads

Frogs did not rivet



Prowling tomcat jumped

Landing in neighbor’s yard

To meet mistress



Silent monks sat on mats

In prayer hall to meditate

Voice left the temple bell



The moon shimmered

In the lake waters

She sat reflecting



In teeming forest

Orchid basked in glory

In solitary splendor
