“Six Japanese Gardens”

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1095 Six Japanese Gardens by Kaija Saariaho

gurgling valley stream
can’t resist your lovely song –
shadow of a Carp

Here is my attempt:

a gong sounds
tiger lilies raise their heads
in Japanese garden


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
