Pristine (Haiku)

Like a pristine page,

freshly fallen snow falls prey

to my selfish mark.

Beauty

Flowers deriveimages

their beauty from

sunshine,

the rain above,

the nurturing earth below.

Use nature

and see beauty

flourish.

Think about the flowers.

Moon

I fly at night

to see the moon

so close,

so close.

Moonlight adds sparkle

to the stars above.

Moonlight throws a bright path

across the still ocean far below.

The dark clouds around me

are edged with moon-kissed promises.

I fly at night

to see the moon

so close, so close.
