Leafless trees stand tall

While the blizzard rages on.

They bend but won’t fall.


Snowflakes for blushing cheeks,

icy wind for tender lips –

winter sentiment.



A single raindrop

on your warm bear skin in June:

a sample of winter.


Afternoon zen

Torrential rain

pitter-patters on the leaves,

singing afternoon lullabies.

Wet lace

Even the strong downpour

cannot ruin the fragile web

the spider weaves on the hedge.
