Today is also ending--
at the bottom of the snowstorm
the gigantic sun

A word of explanation. I had uploaded this ostensibly to my blog (www.sarvananda.blogspot.com) but didn't look closely enough so it appeared here. Oh well. Enjoy!






Water in the glass
Shakes on the kitchen table
As I am writing.







Noiseless clod of snow
Falling swiftly to the ground
Followed by others.




 




 Shadow on the tree
Last for only a second
Then cloud swallows it.



 




 Scattered through the snow
Thin branches are silhouettes
Of a Spring to be.





 



Lines along the snow
Borrowed from adjacent fence;
(Not to be repaid).





 




 Many woodpeckers
Have feasted on this old stump.
Now, it's mainly holes.










Lying off the road
Small Siberian tundra;
(Visiting Woodstock?)









The road is empty;
All I have for company
Is my monkey mind.
