beauty of the rain
in its quiet nourishing –
yellow ixoras

According to my calendar it's new moon.

The new and first-quarter phases, known as the light of the Moon, are considered good for planting above-ground crops, putting down sod, grafting trees, and transplanting.

In some Native American legends, the moon is held captive by a hostile tribe. A pair of antelope hope to rescue the moon and take it the village of a good tribe, but Coyote, the trickster, interferes. The antelope chase Coyote, who tosses the moon into a river each night, just out of reach of the antelope.



Unlike the sun, the moon does not present the same face every day. It waxes, or grows larger, until it becomes a glowing silver-white disk. Then night by night it wanes, or shrinks, to a curved sliver until it vanishes altogether. A few days later a slender new moon appears and begins to grow again in an endless cycle...

from yesterday's rain
the mountains' sport of lush greens -
far away dreams enfold

✿ܓ

a riot of colour
departs eventually -
falling leaves

✿ܓ

the rain has ceased -
dart of a kingfisher
in lieu of rainbows

✿ܓ

anxious upturned faces -
a spot of day darkness
awaiting

✿ܓ

as fishers as friends
out to sea in a boat -
cormorant fishing

✿ܓ

circle of brighness
in the coolness of night -
beautiful moon

✿ܓ

white butterfly -
on the other side of the street
distance spins its tale
