Spring flowers
autumn moon
summer breezes
winter snow:

With mind uncluttered
·  this is  ·
the finest season!

-Wúmén Huìkāi

Solstice suspiration


Hyla versicolor

…in manus tuas…



in day that defines
at home with growth and form


in night that re-knits
sojourning silent mists and stars


Hyla versicolor

darkness scintillant

as ground shifts and seasons slide

may you with ease
find sense and sound footing where little appears
inspire in moist color to commune with deeper flows
dance delighted with moving spirits of other spheres
tease the onefold from artificed complexities
know open hand, comforting eye, place of natural belonging
hold and be held by all-that-is

until all awaken!

With best wishes and cautious hopes for a new year and a new reality…
