Big Triku ‘Poplars’

Majestic poplars

leaning by the water’s edge,

lightly rustling leaves.

~

A sprinkling of coloured stars

glinting in the winter night, creatures

moving through the shallow light.

~

A flapping ghost, low

above the waving grasses,

sunbeams from the east.

Big Triku ‘Half-Turn’

I shall rise, and leave

before the sun, returning

once its light is done.

~

Many years have passed me by

since last I ventured out this way to

feel each moment of a day.

~

When evening comes, I

shall rest, stars twinkling bright, as

the owl leaves its nest.
