winter morning--
remains of a candle inside
the snowball lantern

autumn forest--
hiding under the spruce,
a chanterelle family

biding my time--
alone with the moon
and the stars

the praying mantis
sits perfectly still in front of
the buddha statue

october beach--
a seagull lands on the
sandcastle remnants
