    a daffodil

    so close to the ground

    reaching skywards for sunlight

    namgay wangchuk (thimphu)

    a world of kindness

    heart,  but beats akin

    to the tender falling rain

    dorji tashi (thimphu)

    quiet evening

    fading light

    illuminates the room

    dorji tashi (thimphu)

    shimmering rain

    endlessly fall

    onto all awaiting life

    dorji tashi (thimphu)

    she sings

    recalling every phrase

    her late mother’s song

    sonam palden (thimphu)

    the sound of her robes


    hurrying along the intersection

    sonam palden (thimphu)

    “thank you”

    says the shopkeeper

    on a deserted sunday street

    sonam palden(thimphu)

    wind in my hair

    oh how wonderful

    to be alive

    tshering dorji(thimphu)

    tender pearl

    on her eyelid-

    tear drop

    tshering dorji (thimphu)


    open sky

    a bird paints

    my thoughts

    tshering dorji (thimphu)



    having to walk in the pouring rain

    i’ve learned how to move in the space

    right between one drop to the next

    yangchen lhaze ( seattle, usa)

    a little girl, celebrates her birthday

    on the wall of her house

    a giant tree casts its shadow

    sonam palden (thimphu)

    year after year

    i say, i don’t really like spring

    yet each time…rain showers

      i’m on this other tip ,flying high

    high fivin the like minded

    movin steady through the sky

    yangchen lhaze ( seattle , usa)

    a nest between ferns

    nightingale feeds the young ones

    one stands guard always

    geeti yaganegi (gelegphu)

    on the electric line

    bougainvillea are in full bloom

    the pigeon grooms itself

    geeti yaganegi (gelegphu)

    pigeon soaring high

    the nest is not abandoned

    another pigeon arrives

    geeti yaganegi (gelegphu)

    high up on the nest

    the young ones have grown feathers

    ready to take their flight
