autumn haiku 1



rolling green meadows / tawny cornstalks sunset-drenched / before bonfire sparks

summer haiku 10

tiny butterfly / wings still on dandelion / white exclamation

This really happened. A moth (is that not the same as a butterfly?) with a black spot or two on white wings landed on a yellow flower. The wings were still. Folded together. A gorgeous moment in the sun. And it is almost, not quite, the last day of summer.

canal haiku triptych



I.
two sunning turtles
abiding our twin footfalls
stone above water


II.
one regal heron
alert shoreline sentinel
tracking our chatter

 III.
shrieking blue jay cry
sweat in the small of the back
wood bridge, dusty shoes
