Wesak...
the inner serenity
of Prayer




Wesak is the most important of the Buddhist festivals and is celebrated on the full moon in May. It celebrates the Buddha's birthday, and, for some Buddhists, also marks his enlightenment and death.

the hunkered shadow
of a small boy

hangnail moon...
the swift and silent flight

riding the wind...
set fair for a distant shore
with only the slap of waves



This photo was taken by my son, Sean, who was perched at the top of this a 100-foot mast. Shortly before, the yacht had been hit by a gigantic wave and he had been swept overboard.

late autumn...
her seven cats
and a barren womb

after lunch...
the measure of bravery
on a sliding scale



I took this photo hanging out of the back of a boat on the Black River in Jamaica, with two of my sons holding onto my legs. I was 67 at the time.  :)

the measured tread of hooves
on cobblestones

coming or going...

the old man
losing the race

into the sun
unfolding inch by inch...

I am lost between
here and there

wingbeats...
the gentle breeze
on flower jewels

spring love on tender stems
so many bleeding hearts

scudding clouds
the haunting sound
of wind song
