snowflake

still

we stay cuddled

in our own little corner

watching the snowflake

whitening and brightening

everything beyond

our window sill

.

still

we stay cuddled

in our own little corner

watching the snowflake

livening and chilling

everything beyond

our window sill

.

and we know

that all the fun is here

in our own little corner

watching the snowflake

fluffing down

as we warm by the chimney

still…

origami sakura

my origami sakura

I would love to

fold you up

tuck you into my pocket

and take you where I go

.

my origami sakura

I would love to

unfold you then

to stay in my uchi

to eat from my jubako

to dream on my futon

.

my origami sakura

I would love to

shade you from fire and rain

not sodden nor scalded

so that you will always remain

crisp and cute

and necessary in my arms

.

and not just another white face

kimono clad

paperfold

that crowds the tokonoma

.

come sit with me at the genkan

my origami sakura

let’s view what’s ahead of us

.

you are one hashi

and me, the other

.

the scenery is so beautiful..

.

.

.

two dynasties

me,  of   tang   descent

you,    a    sung    origin

on      the      footbridge

where I  found   myself

our   destiny   pulsates

droplets        of        you

pelted         my       skin

.

as you  streamed pass

your       dew      fertilize

the       entire     yonder

re-enacting   the  spirit

of our abled ancestors

in    awe,   I    whenced

the carps  understood..
