high summer
juice drips from every bite
of my peach

migrating birds
my husband bids them goodbye
as to our sons

mój mąż żegna je tak samo
jak naszych synów

currawongs fly
down from the cold high country
I sort morning tea

cicada’s song . . .
I listen to the sounds
of bamboo growing

crescent moon—
the quiet sheen
of a raven’s beak

the white lotus
glides on pond ripples—
a fish leaps

glassy lake
smooth v-wake widens
a silent loon glides

sunrise
in a drop of dew
the goldcrest's song

half-way across
the icy footbridge
Vespers bells

chestnut moon—
birthday pudding makes
the baby smile

end of winter
our old black cat
returns to the beginning

morning fog
pierced by sharp
sunbeams

jutarnju maglu
oštrim snopom svjetlosti
probija sunce
