#1
Black,
yellow,
brown, or white--
partitions skin
deep.

#2 WATER MEADOWS

rush
and sedge
hide shady
ponds--teeming
with
life

#3

by
the stream
so shallow,
weeps a willow
tree.

#4 DAYSTAR

dawn
tinges
the bleak sky--
hope enlightens
all

#5

a
sea mist
rolls inshore---
daydreams deluge
me

#6 BIRDSONG

lost
in the
soft mist of
a September
dawn

#7 EQUINOX

Rain
droped leaves,
spotted gold--
scatter in the
wind

#8 MONA LISA

Her
gaze and
smile followed
his every
step

#9

bells
tolling
on the wind--
old memories
die

#10
a
dry rock--
out of the
white water of
life

#11 HIGH RISE
Thin
spires
in the breeze---
tasselled teasels
touch

Lanterne #12

Faint
May breeze----
in the trees
ripples shaded
green

TETRACTYS EXAMPLES by Brian Strand

ICHTHYS

White
blossom,
a welcome
springtime emblem,
the foretaste of succulent fruit to come.

BLUE NUDE-Matisse

Her
figure
created
stark sensations,
aroused by the simple blue cut-out shapes

NATAL THERAPY

To
forget
those bygones
done and dusted,
lost,forgiven and now forever gone.

SHORT MEASURE

Eye
poems
displaying
a shapely form-
exempting audition from needless stress.

SUMMER BALL

Love
blossomed
suddenly
that evening
they met by chance,in the 'excuse me' dance.

RENEWAL

Rain
upon
frozen earth,
metamorphised,
now emerging as bluebells in the glade.

REVERIE

Way
beyond
bygone's reach,
ambitions lay
buried deep in his forgotten dreams.
