Sunrise on Mt. Fuji

Today at dVerse, Paul is the Pubtender. He is prompting us to write on “drunkenness”.

Sunrise on Mt. Fuji
On Mt. Fuji’s summit
the air is thin.
The water in my bottle is warm –
as it goes down my throat –
pure nectar!
The sun begins to rise.
I become drunk on the sun –
peace settles in my soul.

My Night

This is my first visit to Poetic Bloomings, hosted by WALTER J. WOJTANIK and other grand folk over at Poetic Bloomings, another poetry community. Walt is the newest addition to our staff over at dVerse Poets Pub whose doors are closed for a brief summer hiatus. dVerse will be back in a couple of weeks! At Poetic Bloomings today, we were given the amazing poem “You Begin” by Margaret Atwood to be our inspiration. This is my poem inspired by that. I have left a link to my poem at Poetic Bloomings at: https://poeticbloomings2.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/an-entertaining-summer-day-5-you-begin/

My Night
the fiery sunset fades to grey
and grey becomes indigo and
at last black. In the blue hour birds
sing their last songs of the day.
the summer night begins.
this is my night of the summer
when animals creep about
and bats fly, this is my night
with smells of roses, freshly cut grass.
this is my time of silence
broken only by the sound of insects
and frogs singing the stars awake.
air cools and dew falls
and only I am awake to know
this time. the wild tuxedo cat
ignores me as he makes his way
to the bush where is the pile of food I leave for him
and eats his fill and then moves on.
the fawn has grown to a doe and
she grazes on the clover just out of my reach.
The roses of my neighbor and my gardenia
mingle their perfumes for one brief glorious moment.
a mockingbird splits the silence of my night
and begins his cycle of song.
the still cool sky lightens to grey
to heliotrope and then explodes
into sunrise.
this is the beginning of my summer day.

Duality of Light – 波動粒子の二重性

 

(Hadō ryūshi no ni-jū-sei   波動粒子の二重性)  

For all my geek buds:  Light is a wave and a particle 🙂

 Sunrise flows over

Hilltops:   A tsunami of light.

I surf without fear.

Darkness  falls.   I blow

sun dust from my skin.  Firefly

sparks swirl in the night.
