rays of moonlight
through a gap in the clouds
summon your image
but it’s only a shadow
on the white garden wall

  a winter gust
riding the old swing
in the backyard ...
my childhood sweetheart
in and out of my thoughts

    after 20 years
I find you on Facebook
where you followed your dream
I followed my heart

changing light –
a splatter of poppies
at our meadow’s edge
the silvery ghost
of Monet at his easel

space Jenny Ward Angyal - USA

  sitting zazen
the faint scent of grass
from the tatami –
how far can they travel
those ghosts without feet?

    unearthly shrieks
reverberate across the valley;
how can I go
into this haunted night?
how can I stay here alone?
