  • pop-up paper dawn
    origami city wakes
    from it's folded dreams
    each pearl a stanza
    strung together to form the
    most beautiful poem
    waves fold upon waves
    blue ocean's tato hides her
    undersea treasure
    origami is
    when the story is told in
    each & every fold
    white as flakes of snow
    the spring time apple blossoms
    put on a grand show
    seagulls swim above
    summer's aquamarine sea
    bat rays fly below
    autumn's night sky fog
    halo around harvest moon
    innocent lady
    snow on the ground is
    not nearly as beautiful
    then when it floats down
    frog on lily pad
    jumping into clear water
    scattering koi fish
    colorful wood duck
    in a plumage kimono
    flaps wings just for show
    bird sings, elephant runs
    flute & drum
    heron stands alone
    sunrays splashing upon reeds
    breeze blows soft as silk
    wind caresses chimes
    romantic tinkling music
    tender love making
    within lake's dark clouds
    wings of geese thunder clapped then
    rained feathers - wings burst
    burn pine incense stick
    pay respects to ancestors
    calm meditation
    dragonfly zips past
    ant caught inside spider's web
    reeds bend in strong wind
    Mind over body
    hurting no man will show strength
    perhaps save one's soul
    Through peaceful gardens
    walk upon the temple grounds
    breathing in good thoughts
    quiet peaceful spot
    thoughts in Zen meditation
    exhale bad karma
    Pear blossom perfume
    drifting over valley floor
    under Mt. Fuji
    origami box
    to hold fancy candy treats
    holiday party
    pine sap slowly drips
    sunbeams filter thru woodland
    ground wet from Spring dew
    Ducklings play amongst
    soft pussy willow marshes
    splashing sunshine dance
    pretty little pond
    of Yamashiro
    Vernal equinox
    fields carpeted in flowers
    after soft showers
    sitting in pine tree
    night heron sleeping all day
    then fishes at dusk
    Foggy shrouded wood
    azaleas under pine
    awaits bright sunshine
    camellia bloom
    native flower of Nippon
    sun shining upon
    Mimosa tree blooms
    crane birds open wings take flight
    mist over koi pond
    Cherry blossoms fall
    under forest canopy
    sunbeams through pine trees
    Soft azaleas
    delicate dragonfly wings
    cat curled up asleep
    Pagodas stand tall
    time for tea ceremony
    quiet children watch
    Kyushu Temple
    dynamic divinity
    is in everything
    Origami cranes
    line Hiroshima pathway
    honor ancestors
    Man waits in small boat
    diver comes up for air
    daughter finds black pearl
