Happy Halloween

I wish you can sing the song-prayer from the divine office:



Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them, springing fresh from the Word


Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass


Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

Alone, the boy hides 

behind a tree in the backyard 

waiting for the fairies.Image

His mother calls dinner time.

What are you doing?

I’m playing a game:

I have a secret.

Come and cleanup.


Tomorrow is halloween.

He will dress up 

what he wants to be 

and imagines

a day in his life.


Red roses will remain

and the half moon

poetry like the seasons

will change and grow

revealing new secrets.





Fibonacci numbers by itself and in nature fascinates me.Image 

Who is Fibonacci and what is Fibonacci numbers?

from Wikipedia:

Leonardo Pisano Bigollo (c. 1170 – c. 1250)[1] – known as Fibonacci, and also Leonardo of Pisa, Leonardo Pisano, Leonardo Bonacci, Leonardo Fibonacci – was an Italian mathematician, considered by some “the most talented western mathematician of the Middle Ages.”[2]

Fibonacci is best known to the modern world for[3] the spreading of the Hindu–Arabic numeral system in Europe, primarily through his composition in 1202 of Liber Abaci (Book of Calculation), and for a number sequence named the Fibonacci numbers after him, which he did not discover but used as an example in the Liber Abaci.[4]



gives examples of Fibonacci number in nature:

The Fibonacci numbers are Nature’s numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. The Fibonacci numbers are therefore applicable to the growth of every living thing, including a single cell, a grain of wheat, a hive of bees, and even all of mankind.

Fibonacci in Plants

 Phyllotaxis is the study of the ordered position of leaves on a stem. The leaves on this plant are staggered in a spiral pattern to permit optimum exposure to sunlight. If we apply the Golden Ratio to a circle we can see how it is that this plant exhibits Fibonacci qualities.

when memory returns

I lack strength to forget the girl

 walking under cherry blossoms, walking

into my consciousness, silence surrounds her.


Water cycles back garden waterfall

over flowers, before leaving, butterflies linger

piano sonata ends with themes returning.


Dawn looks differently now,

my heart lifts with expectations,

filtering cherry blossoms.


I would like to say

Different women on different days

which one should I choose?


I saw her walking under the cherry blossoms

almost instantly I knew I love her.


I saw her walking in the garden of roses

almost immediately I knew I love her.


different vintages, different wineries

which one should I choose

pinot noir or cabernet sauvignon?


Choosing which woman to love

or which vintage to prefer

is a matter of gravity.


I would like to say

I enjoy/love

the movie.
