A Drop of Rain (23/11/89)
A grain of sand on the great beach
Meets wonderful friends as the wind blows.
A drop of rain bonds them together for a lifetime.
As the sun dries the water,
The grains depart to meet again
When the rain returns.
Words Unspoken (15/11/1989)
Drawn to the bank of the stream,
Bid me to cross;
The warm moon,
The cool, soft current,
The mist of a nearby waterfall
Obscures all but a silhouette
On the other side,
Touch the water,
Thought that touches;
Diamonds in Emerald Moss (20/12/1989)
Diamonds in emerald moss,
A silvery veil touches the boundless pool, pure.
Spring rains overflowing,
Thunder then now calm.
A Mirror of the Past (5/1/1990)
Clouds below rise to greet me
Uncovering neighbourly peaks.
Myself, I see across the valley.
A mirror of the past? Or future?
A waterfall next to me
Rejuvenates flowers below with new-fallen rain.
Fragile tundra sips virgin air.
A soft touch on my shoulder,
A familiar caress: Not Alone.
My companion peers at infinity with me.
We face the future together.
