Tranquility

By Bill Waters (stanzas 1, 3, 5) and Zee Zahava (stanzas 2, 4, 6)

spiral garden:
we follow it in
we follow it out

red hibiscus
exactly my height

from somewhere
a church bell . . .
rose petals

wandering mind
clouds travel
from here to there

scent of gardenia
on the breeze

spiral garden:
we inhale
we exhale

Passages

A Rengay by Annette Makino & Bill Waters

revolving door
that autumn leaf
comes round again

behind the bookcase
a secret passage

tousled roses
the garden gate
rusted open

spring break
the hallways fill
with silence

a curving dirt road
to an unlocked door

tunnel’s end
morning light bouncing off
fresh-fallen snow

Just Passing Through

Summer birds visit our bird feeder as individuals, pairs, or small families. Spring birds, though, come in flocks — two dozen, three dozen hungry beaks at a time. They shovel down the birdseed and strut around like they’re at an airport food court . . . which, in a way, they are.

chatter of starlings
— WHOOSH —
and then silence

Head in the clouds

A Rengay by Bill Waters & Caroline Skanne

hedgerow —
100 starlings
rise up

sunlight in the silver birch
so much laughter

a cooling breeze
through shrubs and trees . . .
my head in the clouds

waning sun . . .
a ladybird enters
the conversation

hidden in the hawthorn
sparrows rustle the shadows

last scrap
of twilight vanishes
with the fox
