Written for:  Carpe Diem honors Jane Reichhold (1937-2017) C.) Fuji No Yama 
Mount Fuji No Yama, the holy mountain of Japan 

spring-clouds

morning breeze
coming in the window
surf sounds

changing forms
all around the Buddha
clouds in a blue sky

clouds
flooding the river
with spring

spring cloud melt
flooding river willows
green leaves

Here is my attempt:

cherry blossoms
cloud cover on mountain
open to thirsty birds

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.
