The sun goes down—
but evening light remains
in the leaves.

Which way to turn?
Winds in the autumn leaves,
snow in the pines.

On a thatched roof
it makes no sound at all—
autumn rain.

Beneath a tree,
autumn wind shows itself
in a single leaf.

on wildflowers

River winds
spread wildflower scent
across the fields.
