A Voice in the Mist | Ivor Steven

The moon’s my patriarch
My dream glowing in the dark
She’s a vision, no feel, no mound
Only a voice, without sound

A distant shining, so forlorn
My nights ache until dawn
She’s a pillow, no caress, no kiss
Only a voice, from beyond the mist

Nature’s Theatre (a Tanka) | Ivor Steven

The late winter sun
Peaks through a curtain of cloud
That flat silver screen
Becomes nature’s theatre
Where true rainbow films are fun

Infinity Times Infinity | Ivor Steven

Between flying high
From here, to out there
Beyond the daylight
A trillion light-years away
Is there further light?
Where does the universe end?
Is infinity times infinity,
The foundation of light?

Witty Butterfly (a Haiku) | Ivor Steven

singing butterfly

decrees, have my wings and fly

join me in the sky
