Autumn Chill

“When I speak
My lips feel cold –
The autumn wind.”

Caught up in the beauty of Autumn

Won’t you come and see
loneliness? Just one leaf
from the kiri tree.

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers. – Basho

Nothing in the cry

of cicadas suggests they

are about to die

"Featherheart"
was chosen as
the name for
this blog
because when
I remember
to keep my
heart light as
a feather,
life is much
easier.
